What happens when we die?
All we know for sure is that we have one lifetime on Earth. This is our first gift from God. One of the other gifts I believe he gives us is eternal life*, or something after death. There is nothing you or I can do or believe that will guarantee will we receive this eternal life. We will receive this gift from God only if God decides to give it, it is completely dependent on God. However, there is a chance no one will get it, that humanity was fooled by its hopes for eternal life and this first gift of one lifetime on Earth is all we get.
I invite both your answer to this question or a response to my answer, whichever you prefer.
* I consider eternal life to include heaven, hell, and otherwise. (This note added post-publication.)
