What's it Like After Death? Death: the final frontier. It is the last great adventure, but, sadly, most people do not know what this last adventure will be like or where they are going. So…what will it be like after death? Will it be torment, bliss, or will it just be nothingness? Fortunately, the Christian Bible will shed some light on this dark subject. The Bible says that after the mortal body is dead, the soul will live eternally in a place called Heaven or a place called Hell. Heaven is a place of eternal life with God where there is no suffering or pain. Hell, on the other hand, is a place of eternal punishment and separation from God. Where will you go? Do you know?

It is the part of a human that never dies; the soul is what will eventually end up in Heaven or Hell. The soul cannot be seen or touched, and it will never atrophy away. Webster defines the soul as the “actuating cause of an individual life” (Webster 1123) It is what makes each person a person.

So, people will be eternally tormented in Hell? Yes, they absolutely will.
