Life After Death?
While having an online discussion with someone, the topic of life after death came up. I found it quite interesting that this individual held the belief that there was life after death. This individual also stated that believing that there was life after death gave their existence a sense of purpose. I asked if there was no life after death , would they still find meaning in their life. The answer that I got was that they would question the reason for their existence and would not feel that they had a sense of purpose in this life. This answer caused me to think more in depth about just how important the belief of an afterlife is to many people.
In most religions , there is a concept of an afterlife or some other state of being . Some religions even promote the thought of having another go at this form of living, but as another person or living thing. I began to wonder if the "purpose" that this individual conveyed in our discussion , was the source for some religions promise of an afterlife. Meaning , that if people thought that this was it, they were more likely to sin or break the law thinking that they had no real reason to do good deeds. I pose this hypothetical question to you, if there is no life after death , would this life lose meaning ?Be honest or else you might go to hell in your afterlife............if there's an afterlife.
