Is there life after death?

One of the main questions of life is what happens next, is there life after death? There are those who claim that once we die, that’s it, there is nothing more. This is the question asked in one of the most ancient books in human literature, “If a man dies, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14). First, let us think about the laws of science, the first law of thermodynamics states that energy or matter cannot be created or destroyed. This means that it just changes form, when a piece of wood is burned it becomes charco or ash. When we die, we do not cease to exist, we just change form from corruptible to incorruptible (I Cor. 15:53). Second, we see this in nature all around us, a seed of corn is placed into the ground and dies and then comes forth a whole new plant. Third, we also see it is inbred in the human psychic. Every culture and every religion has a place of life after death; the American Indian has the happy hunting ground, Eastern religions speak of Nirvana, the Northmen spoke of Valhalla and Muslims have a sensual paradise. However, the most important of all reasons is because the Lord Jesus says so and He and His Word are true. For those who believe in Him, we have this promise, “In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” “Because I live, you will live also.” (John 14:2,3,19).
