Religious attitudes to life after death?
Please help! I have to find information on religious beliefs and attitudes to life after death. Any good sites/ information is much appreciated! Particularly interested in christianity, islam, hinduism, judaism
For the Christian view, please consider Luke 20; 27-38. Here Christ is being tested by the Sadducees (the jewish scholars who did not believe in an after life) trying to determine if marriage will be a factor after death. I think the most important part of Christ’s answer is in verse 38 when Christ tells them that “He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.” In this one statement I believe that Christ is telling us that God cares most about our spiritual condition, not the state of our mortal bodies, and our spiritual condition is to go on living. In short, life after death will be a spiritual life that continues through our earthly life.
Good Luck with the rest of your answers.
