Hey, gang. I got this inquiry from a college student who is doing a research paper comparing Jewish and Unitarian Universalist views of what happens after death. I figured, why not ask the PeaceBangers? You’re as diverse a bunch as there is!
Have at it in the comments!
My first question is do you believe there is some form of life after death?
My second question is if you do not believe in life after death; what do you believe happens after death?
My third question is many hold to the belief in life after death as a way of seeing their loved ones again. If there is no life after death what are ways to keep “alive” the memory of loved ones?
My fourth question Is there a form hope or relief to this life? [I had no idea what the heck Brandon meant by this so I asked him. He responded,
For many people life can be miserable, meaningless, or worthless. For them the idea of an afterlife could provide a sense of comfort,hope, and relief. If there is no afterlife then is there some alternative that would provide a sense of escape or relief from the burdens of life for people?
Help a student and do some deep theological reflection at the same time! Thanks.
