Today many Christians believe that when a person dies he goes right to either Heaven or Hell, but is this Biblical? Man does not possess natural immortality of the soul. We are given the gift of immortality at the second coming of Christ and no sooner. Therefore the dead cannot go to heaven until the second coming of Christ when they arise out of their graves. "Behold, I show you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality." 1 Cor. 15:51-53. What becomes of man's thoughts at death? "His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish." Ps. 146:4. Many Christians believe they can hold conversations with their dead relatives and ask for advice, but is this true? "For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten." Eccl. 9:5. If David's relatives wouldve tried to talk to him after his death, they'd of had a hard time doing that sice David was not in heaven, but rahter, he was in the grave .. "For David is not ascended into the heavens." Acts 2:34. What about you, have you thought all your life that people die and go straight to heaven or hell? Would you rather go by chuch tradition or by what the Bible says?
