what do you think happens when you die?

I got grim news from my dad today that my aunt passed away. I am a bit of a skeptic when it comes to the afterlife. i mean really, no one knows what happens till it happens, but there are still many theories out there. after hearing the news, I remembered lots of childhood memories of holida gatherings with family. very ideal, typical extended family from everywhere, gathering into one household, sharing food, drinks, laughter, conversation, kids running everywhere, and I came to thinking this is how I'd like to envision the afterlife. like a thanksgiving party reunion. all my family and friends hanging out enjoying each others company.

  • I personally believe that we sleep in the grave until Jesus returns to the Earth and calls us forth, either to the Second Death or to go to Heaven with Him.

  • I believe what the bible says, in various scriptures talking about accepting Jesus as Lord, to have eternal life in heaven. One is John 17:3

  • Our body stays buried in the ground, but our spirits go up in heaven to God. On judgment day all dead will awake, so they can also be judged. Then God decides where you will spend your life, an eternal life with Jesus or be burned in hell.

  • I believe you pass into an afterlife, watch your past lives play before you and are reborn, to live your new life, and make different choices and mistakes, bringing yourself one more step closer to the gods.

  • You are right no one truly knows til we are there ourselves.

    However, I believe in reincarnation. I believe we have lessons we set for ourselves to learn and we are reborn til those lessons are learned. Once learned we join the Universal Divine.
