The Mystery Surrounding Creation And Life After Death by JoelSavage(m): 10:02am On Sep 09, 2018
Who are we and where did we come from? With different kinds of people, languages, customs, cultures etc, many questions about creation remain unanswered.

What about death? That is more complicated than creation because many have different theories and opinions about death. Some say that the soul goes back to God after death while others believe in reincarnation, that is the soul, upon the death of the body, comes back to earth in another body or form.

However, the Bible says: "For the living know they will die but the dead do not know anything nor have they any longer a reward, for their memory is forgotten. Indeed, their love, their hate, and their zeal have already perished, and they will no longer have a share in all that is done under the sun..."

The book of Genesis says: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Initially, that was what we were thought of at school. Years after this Biblical account, the man now faces the most difficult challenge in believing this Biblical account about creation.

Worldwide, hundreds of people, including so-called creationists, anti-Christ forces, and fundamentalists, continue to change the Bible's account of creation into numerous tales that deviate from what the Bible really says.

The belief that there is no God and Darwin's theory which rejects the account of creation in Genesis, has caused many people to dismiss the Bible account as mythical allegory. It's not surprising to see big churches throughout Europe virtually empty on Sundays, reserved only for the dead to receive his or her last respect before burial.

It's clear that a number of people have accepted Darwin's theory that the Biblical account as many churches are being converted to drinking pubs, restaurants, and library. Even though many still are confused over where man originally came from, some continue to play God by taking someone's life by euthanasia, when he can't bring the dead back to life.

Since God has given the man the opportunity to choose, thus; let those that lean on Darwin's theory continue to do so and others that believe in the Genesis creation account also continue supporting the Scriptures. But one question which many find it hard to answer is: Where do we go after death?

Different religions have different opinions about death, yet another part of the Bible reveals: "For whoever is joined with all the living, there is hope; surely a live dog is better than a dead lion."

Both creations of the human being and death will always remain a mystery because it's something that takes us by surprise. One may cheat death, yet death is inevitable. When it strikes, like the fall of both fresh and dry leaves, it takes away the young and the old.

Doctors struggle to save lives and incubators save babies, but why no one has brought a dead man back to life? Is it true that there is life after death? Where does the soul go after death? Is there reincarnation after death? Are we going to see our loved ones already dead when we also die?

Even though I have no answers to those questions, I can't depend on Darwin's theory, because it has no roots. Since the Scripture says: "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away." I will depend on and believe in the account of creation in the book of Genesis.

cool although I have not witnessed a dead person ressurect back to life but based on the bible account of those who Jesus raised from the dead, I can only believe that one who dies a physical death doesn't go straight to judgement. I know the bible says after death comes judgement but with those who died and were resurrected back to life, it makes me think souls who died are just kept somewhere until the final day when the son of man comes.

We have made it into a mystery. It is so difficult for humans to understand and accept nothingness, and we are so imaginative, trying to model absolutely everything, which includes nothing. This makes it into a mystery. And why not, if ideas about death and afterlife are not used to conceive and control people, but make life a little more manageable, meaningful and magical.



Death is NOT a mystery of life, but simply the end of life, just like birth is the start of life.
Life is like a party (or like a box of chocolates as Forrest Gump's mother said) that can be a lot of fun if you let your hair down, unclench your buttocks, and just enjoy it, being as considerate and as decent as you can be.
But, like any good party, it must end. No big deal.
All living things die.
If something didn't die, one could question if it were alive in the first place.
When someone dies, all their memories are erased, the person is gone, irrevocably. Not all the kings horses, not all the kings men can bring back that person. That person abruptly becomes rotting flesh.
Even in the event one could preserve the body, with cryogenics for example, unless all the memories can be preserved (which we have no way yet, not even with cryogenics, to preserve the brain and its neural network that comprises our memories and knowledge), and we revived the heart later, we can at most expect to regain the person in a deep comatose and vegetative state, which for all practical purposes is indistinguishable from death.
Death is not something peculiar to humans but happens to all living things, all animals, plants, fungi, even single-cell bacteria.
Yes, when one examines say E-Coli bacteria jiggling in a petri dish, a casual observer may not think they are so different from just a bunch of "dead" chemicals, but under the microscope those bacteria are as alive as you and me, very busy feeding and reproducing. Yet you will observe that from time to time, one bacterium will stop jiggling (i.e. dies) and soon starts to decay and fall apart and its remains are quickly "eaten" by neighboring bacteria.
Now, what made it die? What exactly happened between T-epsilon and T+epsilon, if T was the moment it stopped jiggling? And why can't we go in there with a tiny probe and give it "CPR" or a tiny jolt of electricity or something to get it going again, we don't know the answer yet. That is a bona fide mystery.

christianity is a puzzle. Mathew 12:32 says if we sin against the holy spirit, we will never b forgiven now and forever. We all kw that we humans sin everday, so if God can forgive sins, then why sending us and helper that dosen't forgivex? So if u die forget about ur spirit coz it has sin already and ur soul should b ur case study.

My own humble opinion sha...i personally believe that their is not nothing like reincarnation or the dead one's living in the spirit realm.Once an individual is dead,he or she is unconscious of nothing,u return back to the dust because that is were u came from.

There’s life after death .....

Ur hand work while u were alive determines where u go after death.

If u are born twice while alive, it means u will die once. Heaven is ur next destination..... *Sureheaven*

But if u are born once before u die, it means ur death is twice. U will die the natural death and also die the spiritual death. Hell fire awaits u

Given that you acknowledged the varying religious opinions per religion, I am compelled to share that of mine.

Yoruba traditional religion/philosophy says that the after life for a person is reincarnation into the same family/lineage over & over but this is influenced by the role required of the person to reincarnate and their status is determined by their previous life. Hence, reward for each person is here on this earth. You’ll always come back to suffer or enjoy whatever you did in the past life.

People tend to make after life story complicated. But is very simple. One does not go anywhere after death. A dead person simply stop existing. Where was Adam before God created him? Nowhere! . After sinning God told Adam that when he dies he will return to the dust. (Gen 3:19) as we all know, dust is lifeless and cant do anything.

It was satan who said to eve that people dont really die, that God was lying. (Gen 3:3,4)

Later God warned the children of Isreal not to inquire of the dead as satan was still using other means to make people believe the lie he told eve. (Deut 18:10-12)

Ecclesiastis 9:5,10 went further to show the dustlike life God had told adam about in Genesis.

When Jesus was told his friend Lazarus had died, he did not say, Lazarus was with God or somewhere else rather he said Lazarus was in a deep sleep thus describing the condition of the dead as not feeling anything. (John 11:11). Infact Jesus even cried before he raised Lazarus because he was pained.

That said, God our creator has the power to bring the dead back to life. That is the Resurrection hope (John 5:28,29). Jesus gave a glimpse of how the resurrection would be like by bringing many who had died back to life.

Satan over the years have sort for ways to make sure the lie he told eve that man never truly dies stays on. He does this through his demons. Sometimes to make people believe that the dead are alive, they appear with the face and bodies of the dead to their relatives and people they know, sometimes through dreams, through false teachers etc. Beware that Satan and his demons can transform to what they want to achieve their aim(2Cor 11:14). During the time of Noah the demons came and took on the form of men so its something they do.
But the truth can set you free from all of this. (John 8:32)
