LIFE AFTER DEATH
1) Resurrection of the body
Evangelistic protestants have this belief and the idea comes from the book of
revelations from an account of the last day when Jesus returns to earth. The dead are
raised from their graves for Final Judgement ­ if you are a Christian/born-again you will
go to heaven, but if you reject God you will go to hell.
"If anyone's name is not written in the lamb's book of life they were cast into the lake of
fire." ­ Revelations
2) Immortality of the soul SOUL
Christians believe that we are made
up of a body and a soul and that
when you die your soul goes to the
spirit world. There is a spiritual heaven
and hell, but only VERY evil people go
to hell. You are judged as soon as you Book of
die from how you have lived your life.
"The dead were judged according to revelations
what they had done" - Revelations…read more

Here's a taster:

WHY DO SOME PEOPLE NOT BELIEVE IN
THE AFTERLIFE?
1) There is scientific evidence to show that the mind
cannot exist without the brain; the soul cannot go on

heaven or hell
