To understand death, we must first consider life. Where did life come from? Why are we here? What is our purpose? Are human beings any different from other living things?

Chapter 3

Death is one of life's greatest mysteries. Do we really die, or do we have a soul that lives on apart from the body?

Some believe that various scriptures support belief in an immortal soul. Let's consider some of these passages and understand what they really say.

Any human being thrown into the lake of fire will be destroyed and will not be tormented for eternity.
