Where Do We Go When We Die?
We have different views on all aspects of life. But there is one thing in life that almost no one can disagree with, the eventual moment that we should leave this world.
We are sure that we will eventually die. The remaining problem is the “when” and “how.”
The “when” of the equation
It can be tomorrow, next week, next year, or the next 50 years. But it will surely come. Japan has the longest average life expectancy of 85 years. If we used that number and took the Luckscout member’s average age to be 35 years, then we have 50 years in our keeping.
However, it stills proves that we will eventually leave this world.
The “how” of the equation
There many ways one can die. The pandemic also makes us closer to the reality of death. Even a healthy and strong person can suddenly death.
So after we know the inevitability of our death, it is paramount for us to reflect on where we will go after leaving this world.
Your opinion will be very much appreciated.
I think there’s life after death, but it’s a different one from the one we live on Earth. Here, we have the body but after death, it’s the souls that go to that life after death.
When we die,as a Christian believer my spirit goes some where in the world,those who are committed christians there bodies will be in a fine place where people living on earth cannot see or here your spirit
All of us who Are dead and a live shall wait for judgement day,where sinners will go to hell aplace with constant fire while others who have done well will go to heaven paradise
It depends on people’s belief systems. What I believe in, may not be what you believe in. I am a Christian and also a Catholic. I believe there is life after death which is eternal.
It depends on our beliefs and thinking. Some people believe that there is a life after death at the other side those who don’t think so. As a Christian, I believe that Jesus Christ died and pay for my sins on the cross, therefore if I die, I will live an eternal life where there is no pain. Those who are sinners and didn’t believe in Jesus Christ as their saver and redempter will go to Hell where there’s a constant fire forever.
What is obvious is no boby went to those two places and came to tell us whether it is true or false. We only know that we will die one day.
When Im dead im dead – i’ll rest wherever they bury me or wherever they put my pot of ashes. End of. Not going to worry or waste time thinking about that. im all about the here and now
As for as the previous comment goes, only religion provide the answer for this important yet difficult-to-answer question.
No one can answer this question accurately, but based on religion, we think that there are two places were we could go after death. The Hell For sinners and heaven or Paradise for good people.
I agreed with you
For me the answer is in a box and the burnt or buried – havent decided yet
The body is committed to the ground and the spirit joins other spirits in the spirit realm.
Science suggests no life after dead,maybe it is something that we can not prove. It’s pretty natural to want to know whether there is a life after death or not. Humans have always been fascinated with death and the idea of coming back to life,but is it really possible to come back from death?
Religions say there is life after death in heaven or hell respectively for non sinners and sinners.
We go to another world where spirits live. The body is buried but the spirit lives and keep moving like wind in the air.
I am a Christian and of course I answer in accordance with Christian teachings. But I respect whatever your beliefs. This is just a sharing. After death the body returned to earth because the first man, Adam, was formed by God from the ground. But the human breath will return to God because the breath belongs to God as God breathed into Adam’s nostrils and Adam began to have a breathing life. The human breath is also known as the human spirit. Humans without souls will die! After death, the human spirit is at the crossroads. Good people will have new life, eternal life with God in heaven. To enter heaven you must know the way there. The only one who knows the way to heaven is the Lord Jesus the Son of God (John 11:25) who came from Heaven and has visited us on this earth over 2000 years ago. While on earth, Jesus bore witness to the work of heaven for mankind. That testimony is found in all four of the gospels of Christ Wicked people and worshipers of the powers of darkness will be in hell, the lake of fire, the place of eternal torment and this is called real death. While we are in this world it is an opportunity to ascertain where we are after death. We are the ones who determine our spirit is in heaven or hell after death I believe every religion teaches and emphasizes the importance of doing good to ensure a good life after death.
Some traditions go further to say that the state of the soul after death determines which type of life it’ll be reincarnated into. A bad soul will be required to undo bad deeds, a good one to continue with the good work or join other retired souls.
I think I will be put in the ground with a green burial – then at least I can give back to nature
HI GARETH, DO YOU BELONG TO ANY RELIGION? I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU MEANT GREEN BURIAL.
Religions scriptures says there are two places were humans spirit will probably go after. The heaven for those who did good and rigth things and the Hell for the evils and sinners.
Hi Nnaemeka Victor no I don’t follow any religion. A green burial is basically where your body is placed in to a biodegradable container and you are buried in a designated area. It looks like a large forest. You body is then able to decompose and feed the land.
I could never give never give you an answer on this and claim to be correct but I do believe something has to happen after we die the fact that we exist is a mystery on it’s own for me. There has to be life after death whether there is a heaven or hell or just a a place beyond this we go to I really don’t know its as much a mystery to me as to you but one thing I believe in for sure the quality of living is the quality that you are dying.
Humans have diverse beliefs on this question. Some folks like me believes in eternal life and eternal death while some believes that they there’s no afterlife.
Since nobody died and came back on earth to tell us where we whether there is a life after death or not.i strongly believe in what is written in the Bible. It’s say that good people will have an eternal life after death in a place called heaven and evil people will be oriented at hell to life eternal life in a fire.this is based on religion belief .
Yes true no one knows – although didnt Jesus die and then come back to life!? May be he has the answer?
According to the Bible, the righteous will go to heaven while the sinners will join Satan in his kingdom of darkness or hell
Kenneth — It is the teaching of all religions. The one who did good will get good and the one who did bad will get bad. So, in everything we do, we should be very careful not to do bad things or do good things in a bad ways.
Leno — I think there are several good stories and books about near death experience and stories about life after death. The books also provide with story of real people who has experience death. One of these books titled Life After Life by Raymond Moody.
Shane Collins — I like your conclusion. The quality of our living reflects the quality of our dying.
Victor — Indeed. The belief is diverse. But those who belief in religions almost share a common perspective, that there will be life after death, and the quality of life here will reflect the quality of life we have after death.
OK Mr Ahmad, i will have a look in that book :life after life by Raymond Moody. It seemed to be interesting.
If u do good, you will go to heaven. But if u do bad, you will go to hell.
Kenneth; How sure are you that heaven and hell exist. People have been asking for evidence of existence of heaven and hell. Can you prove it?
According to African traditional understanding of death,when you die and you have left children ,you have not died but changed the transition.
The assumption was even the dead persons spirit will come once in while to see what his children are doing and in most cases it would come to punish the wrong doers.
Hi, Eli. The principle is similar to those adopted by Muslim here. We believe that the spirits of the death still around in another dimension. Also, on a specific period, they visit their alive family.
We go back dust according to Christian belief, any person that dies go heaven if the person is a born again,but, sinners go to hell.
Because he is the only one who ever died and came back to life in the 3rd day, Jesus Christ knows more about day than everyone else who has speculated about what happen after we die. So believers Will go to be with him in paradise when they die (Luke 23:43)
Non believers will go to a horrible place called hell where their worm doesn’t die and where the fire is not quenched (Mark 9:47-48)
To a place far more beautiful than the world today. A world free from hypocrisy, free from crime and racism. A happier new world with big smiles on all faces.
I believe if the existence of the Paradise and the hell. Your actions on earth will determine your destination.
When we die, we will go heaven, heaven is for those that did right thing, while hell is for those that did the wrong thing
