Life after death will be either heaven or hell. That is, at the resurrection, for as soon as one dies they do not go to heaven or hell. They wait in their graves (like a sleep) until the resurrection. See John 5:24-29.
Contrary to what rvsource says, there is death. We will all die eventually, unless we live till Jesus comes.
Our souls are not eternal, that is a pagan concept. In addition, we do not *have* souls, we *are* souls. See Genesis 2:7.
What RVSOURCE said, """After our physical bodies die our souls live on""" is a dangerous error perpetuated first by the Catholic Church.
Only spirit and body can make a human being. One cannot exist without the other. We do not reincarnate. The Bible teaches differently.
It all depends upon who you are. If you are Truly Born Again you will be a part of the first resurrection and reign with The Lord Jesus Christ, here on this earth, for a thousand years. If on the other hand you are counterfeit Christian of the Christian Religion then you will experience some fiery purging of your religious dross. This resurrection is a Spiritual resurrection.
After the thousand years is over The Father is coming down out of heaven with new heaven (sky) and a new earth and then the second resurrection will occur when the rest of humanity will have their chance for salvation. This resurrection is a physical resurrection.
Either way it's all life after death.
PS I agree with Klipp - souls are not immortal - they die.
William Blake wrote it well in his poem "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell"
"All Bibles or sacred codes have been the causes of the following Errors.
1. That Man has two real existing principles Viz: a Body & a Soul.
2. That Energy, call'd Evil, is alone from the Body, & that Reason, call'd Good, is alone from the Soul.
3. That God will torment Man in Eternity for following his Energies.
But the following Contraries to these are True
1. Man has no Body distinct from his Soul for that call'd Body is a portion of Soul discern'd by the five Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age
2. Energy is the only life and is from the Body and Reason is the bound or outward circumference of Energy.
3 Energy is Eternal Delight"
Or in layman's terms. Religion tells us we have both a body and soul, religion tells us that if we follow our energies (desires) we'll burn in Hell for eternity. But the truth is that we are souls, that energy is life, and those of the first resurrection will be the first to regain their life/energy and keep it for eternity.
It might be a lie told by whoever wrote the bible so we don't have to fear death and not create urgency in our lives like there is actually something better after this life. Live your life=)

How do atheists fight depression?This is a legitimate question. I'm an atheist and I find that when I start to think about death and the sheer vastness of the universe, I get overwhelmed. The birth and death of the earth (and the human race) is so quick and insignificant in the grand scheme of...
