  • Yes the afterlife is essential to religion

    Yes, I think that the afterlife is crucial to religion, and helps people to realize the differences when it comes to different religions. Also, having an afterlife in a particular religion gives its believers something to look forward to and justifies living a pious and morally correct life until you pass away.

  • Yes, the afterlife is essential to religion.

    All religions are founded on the belief that there is some sort of after life. It is this hope for a better after life that gets the masses to join in on religion. People can't accept the fact that there life is not going to get any better when they die. It helps them sleep at night.

  • Yes, religion in the Afterlife is essential.

    The one thing that do know and is going to happen is death. People wait for this main timeline event to happen since they were born. I believe everyone has there own beliefs on what happens once you're judged and until then this is the most common spoken about topic. There is an afterlife because "everything is for reason" .

  • AFTER LIFE IS OUTSTANING

    The afterlife; whether you believe in it or not; is mighty important. It gives the people of that faith and religion, hope and something to look forward to, so that during their entire lives, they make right choices, avoid bad ones, making it seem like their place in the after life depends on their actions. It makes it seem, like when we die, its not the end. Many people are afraid of not feeling anything, not being able to have the consciousness, or never being able to even THINK. The thought of it makes me cringe. But no. At the end of the dark tunnel, after you endure all hardships, there must be a reward. So their is an after life. Very important aspect of life, even though its not been scientifically proved....

  • Yes, the afterlife is essential to religion.

    I believe that the afterlife is essential to religion. The afterlife is definitely one of life's greatest mysteries. Religion helps explain that the afterlife will involve-- living in heaven with God. It gives people great comfort when a loved ones dies knowing that they will be someday be reunited with that person. Without religion, we would not have that knowledge.

  • Not to anyone familiar with world religions.

    Not all religions even believe in an afterlife. Belief in reincarnation, for example, is not belief in an afterlife but in a cycle of human lives. Zen Buddhists do not believe in any sort of continuance of the "soul" after death at all.
    It is arrogance to assume that the beliefs of one religion are necessary to all.

  • It is unfortunate that no such religion still exists.

    There are many different version/forms of life after death continuations, but there are no religions which reject all after life concepts. Proof that it is unnecessary is in that some religions contained afterlife rejection at their origin. For example, Karite, Reform Judaism, Tao, and Hebrew are a few which all openly rejected any concept of life after death. However, since their formation, they have all officially changed their stance upon the matter.

    Given the fact that no two believe exactly alike and that every after-life rejecting religion has been converted, it may be construed that all non-afterlife religions lack one of two things: a backbone or a legal right. I have many reasons to feel that it is the latter. One of which is that belief in a higher power of any sort creates a backbone. This strength is shattered before it has a chance to grow strong because if a religion rejects the afterlife, then the only thing left to discuss is morality and future generations of children.

  • No. Not even all religions even in after lives.

    Man ancient Asian religions (really they are philosophies classified as religions for some reason) do not have the concept of a "Judgment" after life. They do not attempt to keep people in line by threatening them with "Hell". While fear of being burned for eternity is certainly very motivational, it is not necessary and I personally feel an insult to real ethics.
