  • I thought I was the awesome one! I think we all become angels and look after people on earth until we get 5 attaboys and then we can decide if we want to continue to be angels or come back down!

  • No, I'm not trying to stir up trouble. I'm genuinely curious. I know some christians have different beliefs on who gets into heaven and who doesn't, I know some that believe heaven is just hypothetical, and I know some who take the literal interpretation. I have no clue what pagans believe happens as the after life. I want to know if there are people that believe in reincarnation and such. Whether reincarnation as another human life or as an animal/plant life.

  • I believe the Bible teaches we no longer exist except in God's memory, Ecc 9:5, 10,
    (Psalm 88:10) For those who are dead will you do a marvel? Or will those impotent in death themselves arise, Will they laud you? Se′lah.
    (Psalm 115:17) The dead themselves do not praise Jah, Nor do any going down into silence.
    (Psalm 146:4) His spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground; In that day his thoughts do perish.
    (Isaiah 38:18) For it is not Sheol that can laud you; death itself cannot praise you. Those going down into the pit cannot look hopefully to your trueness.
    (John 11:11) He said these things, and after this he said to them: “Laz′a·rus our friend has gone to rest, but I am journeying there to awaken him from sleep.”

  • I believe that our energy rejoins the energy of the universe and from there is 'recycled' back into the universe. We are a temporary manifestation of the energy of the whole, when we die we will rejoin the energy of the whole, and then we will be remanifested in some other form. Not really reincarnation, which implies a continued self that changes bodies like changing a suit of clothes, but you could call it rebirth or recycling.
