|Christian Pioneer - eBook for Cell Phone - What Happens When We Die|
Most people do not give much consideration to what might happen after death. They often think that if there is an afterlife that there is a reward for 'good' people and punishment for 'bad' ones. Given that such little thought is applied to the subject, it follows that little thought would be given to sources of information regarding the afterlife.
1. Popular culture. Many people have a composite in their mind of various ideas derived from popular culture. Saturday morning cartoons and movies about ghosts, zombies, and even space aliens can produce a hodge podge of images that come to mind when someone thinks about that which lies beyond the world with which we are familiar.
2. Demonic sources. It is a testimony to the cleverness of Satan that most people reject even the idea he exists. His hand can be seen in popular culture, but is more discernible in false religions. For example, several religions have doctrines of reincarnation coupled with karma. There is an inherent inconsistency in a system that promises advancement but is based on a system of stasis.
3. The bible. While many voices claim to be true, the Christian is encouraged to seek the truth from the word of God. This is somewhat hindered by the various Christian franchises (denominations) whose traditions and claims often add confusion rather than clarity.
It is the intention of this book to take a broad look at the factors that combine to give us what can be known about what happens after death from the bible. One might expect that a better understanding of the life after this one would create in a person a desire to seek that in this life that would aid that in the next.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: - Matthew 6:19-20
However, we are told that those who are unmoved by the bible will not be moved by other persuasion.
And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. - Luke 16:31
