Hell was a terrifying place in the Puritans' minds, especially asnobody could do anything about it. The Puritans were Calvinists whobelieved in double predestination and unconditional election: inother words, instead of believing that Christ died for all men, intheir minds, Christ only died for the...
Mans' curiosity regarding the afterlife goes back to the beginning  of mankind itself. Throughout history, there have been  disagreements about every aspect of the afterlife. Especially about  whether the afterlife exists at all and how does one get there. The  concept is not limited to...
They needed to put their remains in small vases so that they couldretreive them in the afterlife plus they had to bury theirbelongings with them including the servants so that they would havesomeone to attend to them in the other life.
I would depend on whether the person was Catholic or Protestant. Catholics believe in purgatory, which is neither heaven or hell, but a place souls waite for the judgement of Christ. Protestants disreguard the whole purgatory story (I rhymed), believing that the soul goes directly to heaven or hell....
A vegeterian diet, fruits, nuts, veggies, and possibly bread. I doubt one will have to worry about their weight.
Well, mummies don't believe in anything (per say) since they are  dead bodies. But the Egyptians certainly had many beliefs about the  afterlife. It is best to go to Wikipedia or to an Egyptian history  website to get the details on Egyptians beliefs.
By having a copy in some form of the prayers from the Book of the Dead, in order to correctly answer questions asked you. Your heart must be measured-weighed against the feather of ma'at. If it is heavier than that, your soul would endure death for the dead, being devoured by the monster Apep.
The scale would balance a feather against your heart -- the point  was to have your emotions (which are metaphorically centred around  the heart) be light and positive. Negative emotions, such as anger  or hatred, would weigh down the heart and thus make it heavier than  the feather. Should the...
First, there is no Hell in Judaism, but rather there is a place for the wicked called Gehinom wherein the wicked aretortured in such a way that forces them to overcome their spiritualimpurities and become righteous. The pain also serves as penance fortheir Earthly misdeeds. However, Gehinom is...
The soul of the deceased was weighed against a feather. If the soul was lighter, they had an afterlife. If the soul was heavier, it was fed to some type of monster.
The aim of mummification was not to preserve a person's body as it had been-in life but to create a new bodythat could last for eternity. The Ancient Egyptians believed that a person was made up of a number of physical and non-physical elements. The body was the physical part.The ka and ba, together...
Heaven is biblical paradise where God the Father and Jesus Christ the son reside and where, according to the bible, the saints will go when Christ comes back for his true followers. At that point God will prevail over Satan for the final time and all evil will be destroyed via the lake of fire.
In Hinduism, afterlife depends upon their present life's karmas. If  one does good things those mentioned in epics and puranas and offer  prayers to god, will help him reach heaven or else he will likely  spend another life in this kali yuga.
Sikhs believe in reincarnation. if we follow our religion no matter  what religion we pick we will be spared from the eternal cycle of  reincarnation and will go to God forever.
It's simply the belief that, since we know bodies will eventually  stop functioning and turn into dust, our eternal spirits are worth  more of our effort and time in nurturing.
Why wouldn't it be important to anybody?
The Romans believed that a person's spirit went to the underworld  after the person died. To get there, the dead needed to cross the  River Styx. The dead person's family would leave a coin on the dead  body, to pay the ferryman, whose name was Charon.
A belief in an afterlife is to accept that, after death, the human  does, in some way, live on. This may be in different ways:    Dualism considers the soul and body to be separate. The soul  may then survive after death, even if the body does not. This is  relevant in religions such as...
after we die we will either be accepted into heaven by st. Peter  or we will be damned to hell with satan and live an eternal life  happily or sadly    Biblical Answer:   The Bible is quite clear that when we die, our spirit returns to  God for 'safekeeping' and our bodies return to the...
well supposivly he went to heaven because his father was a god
people go to heaven by their soul. They travell miles away from space but it will be impossible to go there if you are alive.
You have to accept Christ into your heart or invite him. If you havent accepted the Lord into your life and heart and soul then you should talk to a Christian or a Pastor or Reverand to help you with that. But heres a simple way of doing it. Im not suggesting you say these EXACT words, but you...
One answer Heaven is a whole new fairytale worlds for ''nice people'' who really believe in god. Another answer This entirely depends on which theology you follow.

As learned from Holy Quran, soul remains in a intermediate state, until the life of human being comes to the end on Earth, then a new eternal era begins with day of judgement.
Yes. in fact, babies (even full grown people for that matter) whohave never been introduced to God, or who were never taught tounderstand who he is and anything about him can still go to heaven.I always use these two examples: A mother miscarries her babyduring labor; that baby was never able to...
The debate over the existance of heaven and hell rages on. I believe there is enough evidence to say that both actually exist.
All who have ever lived upon this earth, both men and animals will receive the glory that they are entitled to. If you owned a dog which you loved there is no reason why you will not have that animal again in the resurrection.Both will be able to commune with each other.
they put all the riches in the tomb. so they could bring it with  them. they would put it around the mummies
They built tombs. They mummified their bodies so they would be  ready.
This depends on what you believe. Do you believe Heaven or Hell aresecond lives of a sort? The answer would then be yes. QuantumPhysics confirms that humans do have a soul or spirit which liveson after the body dies. Near Death Experiences have been documentedby multiple doctors and health care...
  Only if they exist. Christians and Muslims believe that both heaven and hell exist, but belief is not proof.
The book of spells that the ancient Egyptians used for the  afterlife was 'The book of the dead', also known as "Book of  Emerging Forth Into the Light" 
It's hard to say how a focus on the afterlife may have affected  everyday Egyptian life - I would liken it to modern Western  society's fixation with pop-culture. Ever-present and unquestioned.  As for how a focus on the afterlife may have affected the culture  as a whole - I believe that...
The kings cared to build pyramids, in which they put all the food, clothes and jewelery needed in the afterlife.. They beleived in a fair judgment day to every dead person..
Christian answer:The Jews believe what the Torah and Old Testament  teaches, as well as some additional details from the Talmud; they  believe that there is a heaven and a Hell. the Hebrew word for  their hell is Sheol. they believe that the two share the same area  within the earth, but are...

It's not Heaven and it's not Hell. It's not an ideal place to beright now, but hey, for some of us it's home. Donald Trump hasn'tkilled us all yet... So... We'll be fine?
The ancient Egyptians believed that, when they died, they would be judged on their behavior during their lifetime before they could be granted a place in the afterlife.
My studies on Ancient Egypt were a long time ago, and only at  high-school level. I assume the Pyramids are there to protect the  Mummies from being broken, so maybe this was a concern.
Egypt was eventually taken over by Greece- so if anything they  might switch from one type of afterlife to another. Current  Egyptians are Muslim- so one could say they changed religions, but  never really ceased believing in the 'afterlife'. To my knowledge  there is no clear indication that...
One Answer:   There are many different places to which the term "heaven" can be  referring.    The 3 places which are referred to in the scriptures as "heaven"  are 1) The dwelling place of God / The place where the angels and  the Son of God originally dwelt in God's presence prior to...
When a person dies, their spirits can stay in the area they diedin. if you go in the area a person died in, you might encountertheir spirit. "In your imagination" is likely a better answer if you don'tbelieve in ghosts.
Heaven is referred to the place you go when you die, if you've been a good person. Of course, giving somebody a paper cut or stealing something from the dollar store isn't going to send you to hell, but don't do it anyway ;) Hell is the opposite of heaven. In Greek Mythology, the word Hell comes...
The same way poor went to the afterlife. When anyone dies, the soul  is carried away by the guardians, angels, watchers, or spirits of  some kind who are tasked with ferrying the souls into their place  in the other world.
A common belief was about Purgatory, which was a place that youwould be sent to if you were a sinner. It was a place betweenHeaven and Hell, and the only way out was to repent, or if someonetook your place.
ANSWER BASED ON CHRIST'S MESSAGE: Homosexuality IS NOT a sin, and thus homosexuals WILL GO to heaven! HOMOSEXUALITY IS NOT AGAINST THE BIBLE! LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, & TRANS-GENDERED PEOPLE ARE LOVED BY GOD AS EVERYONE ELSE, AND THEIR LIVES AND RELATIONSHIPS ARE BLESSED BY GOD JUST AS...
The human mind resists the concept of 'not being'. The earliest  humans on earth were aware of mortality and the next step had to be  an afterlife. It also seems to be an inherent belief that there is  a larger power or creator. Scientifically speaking, there is the  fact that energy can't be...
well there may not be physical evidence, but many people that have been very close to dying have pretty similar memories. most say that they saw themselves below as they had this out-of-body experience. most people say they saw some flowers and other beautiful things and a tunnel with a bright light...
A life of eternal fire and burning for Satan in hell.
After death a person stands in connection with his or her  activities on earth. Karma is the law of sowing and reaping. So if  the person activities was right he or she will be lifted toward the  higher regions but if it was negative he or she will sink.
Food, probably. I mean, you can't live without food, and Cleopatra was a human, right? So, she likely brought food. That, and her lungs, I imagine. Yes, and she probably, also, and might have taken jewelery, wigs, incense and fancy clothes. the truth of the matter is that we just do not know what...

Revelation 2:17 We each will get a white stone, and inside the stone will reveal your awesome new name :) Even our brother JESUS receives a...
Maybe it's because if people believe in the fact that they are going somewhere after they bite the dust, then they don't have worry so much about dying in the first place.

In Greek Mythology, when you die, you go to a place called the Underworld. It is underground, and is controlled by the Greek god of Death, Hades.
Nobody is really sure, but everybody seems to have an answer (except for Unitarian Universalists, who have questions - it's okay, I can pick on my own kind) For example, Christians believe that Jesus is the way the truth and the life and you should repent and believe in him, and that he is the...
There are no advantage of being a king in the afterlife. The truth  is I'm the afterlife man stands according to his or her activities.  Earthly positions are not considered during afterlife but how well  a person lived.
First the person had to be mummified. then they would travel, dodging traps and defeating seven monsters guarding gates. then their heart will be weighed against a feather to see if it was heavy with sin. if it was lighter, they would go to the afterlife with Osiris. if the forty two judges along...
There is no way to know. These claims are based on "faith" in the Bible.   Answer: I do not know but I do believe. //Faith is sometimes difficult to explain. But scientifically speaking, Jesus of Nazareth is an actual, historical person. He really existed as much as Ceaser and King Tut. We also...

A second life is called reincarnation. It is believed that life is  a school and as such they are opportunities for those who wish to  improve on themselves spiritually. And such opportunity is offered  through reincarnation.

Eastern Orthodox view on life, simply we believe you must follow  the teachings of Christ, and lives of the saints. We also believe  that its better to suffer in this short live, than suffer in Hell  for eternity. That brings us to the next question about the  Afterlife. We believe that those...
Yes, you can go to heaven. Now, different people will tell you different things. Roman Catholics, conservative Protestants, and conservative Jews, and most Muslims will tell you, no, you're going to hell. Liberal Protestants, Reform Jews, and people of other religious groups will say, yes, you have...

Well, usually when you die, you get a choice if you want to go to  Heaven, Hell, or stay on earth. Some spirits stay on earth because  they are afraid of the after life and life on Earth is all they  have ever known.
That's a matter of personal belief, since no one has been able to return with proof. But All the revealed Books confirms it. Also no need of proof, coz humans have very very tiny sphere of knowledge, and too there are closed things which can't be explored, which are destined to happen.
People who have had near death experiences generally report seeing a bright light. While you may believe that this is the light of the afterlife, that is certainly not the only possible explanation, so I would consider it premature at best to conclude that they have seen the afterlife. Scientists...
Lazarus was in the grave, unconscious, as if 'sleeping'. (John 11:11KJV) Jesus said to them: "Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep." The actual word for 'hell' (Hades in Greek, Sheol in Hebrew) means 'the grave'. It is not a place of torment, but a place of...

Enoch & Alia Another Answer: As strange as it may sound, NO Man except the Son of Man has ascended into heaven - the 3rd heaven and Throne of God (John 3:13). But even He died. Many Commentaries will explain to the reader that Enoch was 'walking with God' or a friend of God because he followed...
