Body and Soul
Our souls are the non-physical parts of a person, and Christianity teaches that our souls are
immortal. This means that our souls don't die when our physical bodies die, and that they move on
to existing in either Heaven or Hell.
Christians believe that our souls are the breath of life that God gave to Adam when he created
Christianity says that when Eve picked the fruit from the tree of knowledge she introduced "original
sin" into the world.
Original sin is the sin that humans are born with, and is different from the
actual sins that people commit themselves. A persons original sin can be
cleansed when they're baptised.
Humans are forgiven for their sins because of Jesus' death. Jesus willingly
chose to cleanse humanity, which is what enables peoples immoral souls to
survive death and reach heaven.…read more

Life After Death
Christians believe that Jesus' crucifixion freed humanity from the punishment of original sin, and
gave us a chance to go to heaven depending on the way that we live our lives.
The bible says that one day Jesus will return to the earth, and on that day we will all be judged by
God. Some Christians believe that this judgement happens as soon as we die, and others believe
that a day of judgement will come in the future.
Those who ignore and go against the teachings of the bible will be sent to hell, where their souls
will live in eternal punishment. Christians who have accepted Jesus and who have lived according
to the teachings of the bible will go to heaven, where there will be with God.
The Roman Catholic Church believes in a place called
purgatory. People are sent to purgatory when they're good
people, but they've still committed some sins. People in
purgatory are cleansed and prepared for life in heaven. People
go from purgatory to heaven but never to hell from purgatory.…read more

People that don't accept Jesus as their saviour and do
not follow his teachings will go to hell. People in hell
will be punished there for eternity.
Christian teaching say that if people have the
opportunity to hear Jesus and choose to not follow

Christianity outlines that there are two types of judgement:
¬General Judgement: The last judgement, when God will pass his final judgement
on the whole of humanity
¬Particular Judgement: The judgement given to each soul when a person dies
Our sins are forgiven because of Jesus' death, which cleansed humanity and
means that our immortal souls will survive death and reach heaven.
Christians believe that they will be judged on their treatment of others. The
teaching in the bible about the Sheep and the Goats shows that people who
care for others will receive eternal life, and those who ignore the suffering of
others will be punished in hell.
They believe that they will receive salvation and redemption through their
devotion to Jesus.
Roman Catholics believe that people can start leading better lives by
confessing their sins to a priest who will forgive them.
