    A dead man got up and walked and he told a bunch of people this was so. Those people chose to face death rather than say that they did not see what they had seen.
    There is something after death. It is reality, so face it 'people'. We are resurrected, our soul is permanent. We are eternal, why in the name of Captain Obvious would anyone think human consciousness is not real?? :)

    What happens when you die you ask ? Well you will travel up to the Judgement Seat of God and be examined. It will take a couple of minutes and any guilt will be revealed, according to that few moments of guilt or innocence eternity of one sort or another beckons.

    I think spending my time on discussing this scripture or that scripture and what it means may be what you like to do, however it is not my cup to tea.

    With that explanation of yours above for what is supposed to happen when we die, I can see why this is not your cup of tea. Can you evidence what you say above about what will happen when we die? No, you can't. But that after we die we will be taken to our eternal home in the grave, it is proved by almost daily facts.

    I believe there is no evidence to support this view.

    I believe in my previous life I was shot in the back in my teenage years.

    I do believe birth is a shock but not a trauma.

    I do not believe this happens until the last judgement at the great white throne.

    I believe you could try a little something other than orange pekoe for a change and it would do you good. The herbals are great sensory experiences.

    From where did you get this knowledge of yourself?

    I also have a pastlife memory. In the book of Job he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb and naked I will return there (to my mother's womb.) So Job expected to be reincarnated.

    The Bible tells us, but most are taught pagan Greek philosophy, that the afterlife is immediate. It isn't!:

    Ecclesiastes 9:5; Psalms 146:3-4; John 11:11-14; Acts of the Apostles 7:60.

    This harmonizes with what God told Adam, @ Genesis 3:19. There is no awareness after death.

    If the dead were living somewhere else, why the need for a resurrection at a later time (John 5:28-29; John 6:44)? --Note the future tense Jesus used in John 5:28-29.

    The Bible is consistent with this understanding, that the dead (for now) are unconscious, sleeping as it were, until the Resurrection.

    How many are taught that the soul dies? Ezekiel 18:4 tells us this.

    Good reasoning!

    When, in the future, people are resurrected, they will be judged on what they do from that point on.

    You asked a lot of questions. I think the answer to the question "what happens when we die?" is "His spirit [or breath] goes out, he returns to the ground; On that very day his thoughts perish." (Psalm 146:4) Thus the need for a resurrection, since " the dead know nothing at all...Also, their love and their hate and their jealousy have already perished, and they no longer have any share in what is done under the sun." (Ecclesiastes 9:5,6)

    So, what does it mean, that you expect to be shot again? I hope not!

    No I hope not, I was just saying that its all coincidental, that we feel certain things and they happen, there would be many more that it doesn't happen.

    I believe that was brought back to memory so that I may understand this life better. For instance why I have an aversion to guns.

    I believe it does not say that. You are misquoting scripture.

    I believe you have to consider what you mean by living, A dead person does not have a living body. However that does not mean a dead person is not spiritually alive. A resurrection is to a living body but if the spirit is dead it can't be resurrected.

    I don't believe it says that anywhere but I do believe the dead like to sleep.

    I believe of course the soul dies because the body dies but the spirit lives on. You are confused because so many people use soul in place of spirit.
