There are many systems of religions and philosophies that presume that there is nothing after death. When a man dies, he is dead all over. Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis declared that all religious beliefs are an allusion and delusion. Friedrich Nietzsche, an existentialist, proclaimed God is dead, and the concept of God is obsolete. However, there are many inspired and righteous men of the Bible who support the notion that there is life after death. Daniel says life after death, "And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to shame and everlasting contempt" (Dan 1:8, 12:2). Jesus Christ, the sacrificial and redemptive Lamb, affirms Daniel's pledge, "Marvel not at this: for the hour cometh, in which all that are in the tombs shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of judgement" (John 5:28-29). Those that obey the gospel by hearing it (Acts 15:1-7), believing it (John 8:24), modifying their behaviors (Luke 13:3), confessing Christ as Lord (Matt 10:32-33), and are baptized (Mark 16:15-16) will one day be resurrected and with the Lamb around the throne (Rev 5:1-14).
