We come to this life, we live a short time, and we depart, they say, for a life of ETERNAL bliss-- or torment. ETERNAL! How does that make sense? Don't you think it ought to be the other way around; your ETERNAL soul ought to be responsible for this TEMPORARY life. In answer to link99, who wondered why I was talking about Cristian beliefs; First, this country is overwhelmingly Christian, and whether I like it or not, those are the people who get in my face. Second, while many other religions believe in afterlives, ONLY Christian and Muslim, out of the 'great religions,' actually claim eternal damnation or rewards based on this life.

This is only one of their very obvious lies. <br />
How fair is it to live some 50-100 years maximum on Earth, then FOR ETERNITY TO BE DAMNED? LOL. <br />
Obviously it is not like that - IT IS NOT. <br />
And not because of the fairness, but simply because that lacks ANY SENSE. <br />
Why would anyone create such a nonsense? <br />
We are here to LEARN AND DEVELOP OURSELVES. <br />
NOTHING IS BETTER OR WORSE THAN ANYTHING ELSE. <br />
I know how that idea won't be much liked by many - BUT THIS IS THE ONLY TRUTH.

Christians are not the only ones to believe this. Many, many religions believe similarly if not exactly the same way.<br />
<br />
Why is it only the beliefs of Christianity that you question? Looking for answers?

People will believe in whatever they can control, if you can name it then control it... I believe the now controls the now, the future will be controlled when it becomes the now.

Best Answer

we are here - therefor we see everything from the valance of this world.

Best Answer

The short life does not control. The soul uses the temporary body to perform the training before entering the eternally spiritual world of God. It is like the training of the embryo in the womb of the mother to enter this world. If it remained as an egg, it could not live here. The training in the womb is destined, the training here is optional.

Insert "endless vague and somewhat insane babblings from bronze age texts here" ... <br />

Thats the only reason Christians believe it ... Personally in my nightly conference call with God he told me "Get over yourself ... as if I want you lot around babbling at me for all eternity"

Best Answer

Because someone told them that, so it must be true.
