Where do people go when they die

after a person dies where do they go
Asked Dec 19, 2009
Christ said in the new testiment we go to the spirit world where those that have done good go to one place and those that have not go to another where we wait in paridise or misery til the judgement day when we will be judged based on how we kept Gods commandments. Christ said to serve others. As we devote ourselves to the service of others we will be blessed and we will have what we need and our lives will be blessed.

Yeah, whatever any religion tells you, the real answer is: Nobody knows. And that is why we have religion, because we are deathly afraid of not knowing. So we make things up to comfort us.
Now, before any religious fanatics starts beating my skull in, let me put it this way: Many, many religions exist or have existed, most of them was sooner or later abandoned. Why? People stopped believing. Why did they do that? Because there was no proof that they were right; or another, larger group got them to join them instead.
The reason I don't believe in any religious explanation is that religious texts were always written by multiple humans, always morally adjusted after how things were at that time, and has also been proven to leave things out or be outright wrong.
If there even exists a God that takes your "soul" in after you die, he hasn't showed himself for the last 2000 years. You'd think that if he really wanted people to believe in him, he would show up and prove his existence to any non-believers. According to religious texts, God(s) did that all the time a few thousand years ago, so why not now?
In my opinion: Because they simply don't exist.

When you die, your brain stops functioning and you enter a state similar to dreamless sleep. Not long after, your body and brain rots and you cease to exist for good.

Hey All out there, I've read your comments and some come close to making sense but many in MY opinion are way off the mark.

See if you can understand me be this text called Pascals Wager:

God might or might not exist. It is a gamble whether you believe in Him or not.

As with any gamble, we should consider the odds.

Pascal described the payoff of this gamble as follows:

Should I believe in God or not?

What do I have to lose by believing in Him; and what do I have to lose by not believing in Him.

If God does not exist, then you neither gain nor lose anything from belief or disbelief. GET IT?

In either case, you just die and that's the end. SIMPLE

However, if you choose to believe in God, and you are right, then the reward is infinite: ETERNAL BLISS IN HEAVEN.

On the other hand, if you choose not to believe in God (as some of you above do), and you're wrong, your pay off is negative infinity: ETERNAL SUFFERING IN HELL.

To summarize:

Table of Payoffs = Believe in God or Don't believe in God

God doesn't exist = 0 =0

God exists +∞ (heaven) −∞ (hell)

Since the chance of God existing is unknown, but the payoff/punishment scheme is infinitely in favour of believing in God, just on the small chance that he might exist, you'd better believe.


This argument, as can be seen, is based in the same logic of a lottery wager.
(and I don't do the lottery)

The differences in this case is that in the lottery, if you lose the reward, you also lose the money you payed for the card, while Pascal states that, by believing in God, you lose nothing.

Well after reading that I am sure you can guess which way I am going to go.

May you (the reader) be blessed,

I really like what you wrote
I was told that it is not just believing in God, that you have to believe that you are a sinner, that Jesus paid for your sins on the cross, died and three days later God raised him from the dead
@beautiful_girl you are 100% correct. You can believe that God is there, but that won't do anything if you don't believe that Jesus died for our sins ON THAT CROSS so we wouldn't have to suffer like he did. Think about it; nails in your hands/feet, being fed vinegar on a sponge, and to top it off; a crown made of thorns. Now if that sounds like a trip to Fiji to you, then I hope you know Satin has your personal pit in Hell warmed up for ya.
All of u rock for giving christian answers! i'm a kid, so my answer may be "different", but- u do go to heaven, if u believe that Jesus died for you, and in heaven, you get to finally reunite with others that have died and are christians which is great, because my great grandpa died when I was about two yrs old (other one before I was born) and when I die, I finally get to live with them eternally forever! BUT, to go to heaven you have to believe in God, worship, and serve Him. until you do die It sounds like u, michael are not a christian,and I and i'm sure all other christians too, would absolutely recomend that u too become a christian and follower of Jesus, and God, the Father because then you dont ever really die, you live eternally with God in heaven forever!!!! :D

i believe that the fact that we are able to have a window to our sorroundings and actually live a life, any life, been able to know what is good and what is bad by instinct! there is people with out education of any kind, they feel it in there hearts when something is wrong or right. all this things show something is there beyong what we are able to comprehend that sets our fate. every morning when you wake up is a miracle, the planet we live in, the selestial bodys that sorround us, all this things are so perfert to support our beings, do you believe all this things are a coincidence? I sure dont, it is all to perfect. If you dont call it God I dont know what else to call it. I think that we as human beings should be very aware of the things we do, good or bad, If you are in Gods shoes why would he want to bring someones spirit or soul if they are not good people. I figure he would want only the ones worth while. the others well it would be a waste of time, if they where not any good in a place as simple as earth in my opinion to hell with them. well I defenetely believe there is something waiting for us after we pass on if we are worth it here we are worth on the other side.

It's pretty obvious what happens to your body. We have very definite proof of that. If there's anything beyond that, nobody knows for sure. Harry Houdini, the great escape artist told his son that he would do his best to communicate with him and tell him what's on the other side. He died 84 years ago and nobody's heard a peep out of Harry since. If there is any form of life after death it's nature's best kept secret.

That is a question that many people ask. Notice the what the Bible teaches. God explained what happens when we die when he spoke to the first man, Adam. Because Adam was disobedient, God said to him: “Dust you are and to dust you will return.” (Genesis 3:19) Before God created Adam “out of dust from the ground,” Adam did not exist. (Genesis 2:7) Likewise, when Adam died, he returned to dust and ceased to exist.
The same thing happens to those who die now. Speaking of both humans and animals, the Bible says: “They have all come to be from the dust, and they are all returning to the dust.”—Ecclesiastes 3:19, 20. Is death the end of everything?

Have total trust and faith in God and you will go to Heaven. Give your life to Him and ask Him to guide you and you can't go wrong. If you do this, you will be shocked at how happy you will be and no I am not a preacher, just a true believer. God bless you.

I'm not looking for any slamming for what i'm about to say because it's my own damned opinion, and not yours... so if you don't agree with it, then that's cool. Just don't be a bitch, and get your panties in a wad.

When the subject changes to religion I always get a little annoyed... Growing up I attended church a handful of times, and now that i'm an adult, and have gone through times in my life when I think it would be nice for someone to actually be above to talk to, and help me with my problems and all, I find myself thinking that the ALL MIGHTY that everyone is talking about might not exist.....

Here's my only problem... if you believe in god, then of course you must believe in the opposite, right? Well personally on many occasions... i've been through more rough times with family/wealth/health problems than some people couldn't imagine, and have asked Mr. red to come foward, and do the deed.... nothing ever happens though.... so i'm thinking... if i've called him out more times than I can count, cursed the pussy out with every four letter word I can think of and he cant come through.... well then he must not exist..... and if he doesn't exist, then well... I think u know where i'm going...

Interesting dialogue; It is a shame that as smart as we are that many of us fail to acknowledge the other 50% of our existence here. When we take the position that "we will only believe what we see" we are cutting off half of our life experience and awareness here on earth. To be able to see and experience all that we were born to experience we need to open ourselves up to the other 50% which is spiritual. That, we must "believe in order to see".

Before I answer, do this.
Pray (talk to God)...."Lord Jesus, I believe you are God, who came to earth in the form of a man. You healed the sick, cast out demons,raised the dead and spoke of the love of God towards man and the forgiveness of their sins. You then gave yourself to be tortured and murdered on a cross, as you took punishment for all mankinds' sin, upon your self. Then you declared, "The debt is paid." Then you rose from the dead. You promise eternal life in relationship to everyone who accepts You. I accept You Lord. Come into my life now."

Now God will enter your spirit and you will walk with Him. He will teach you and talk with you. When your body dies, the real you, your spirit, will go to heaven with all the millions of other believers.
Go to a funky church and get involved.

you are out or order stop giving people answers like this you have no right to push your beliefs onto other people you make me extremely angry!!!
Well it depends what you believe in. You can get your souls reincarnated into another life form if that's what you want. But generally when we die, we are allowed to spend some time on the earth plain to still be with family and friends. And then when you're ready, you can pass over to heaven. If you have been a bad person in your life, you will turn into a bad spirit with negative energy and the only way to go to heaven is to get a physchic to send you. Bad spirits or 'ghosts' make people feel uncomfortable. But if you have been a good person, you will be a good spirit and have a protective and safe feeling. Once you die, you have more abilities than what you had when you were human.
