Profound Biblical Contradictions #2 – THERE IS NO AFTERLIFE

What happens after we die?
According to the religious, the entire purpose of this life is to love and worship God – it is a set up for your Afterlife. Heaven and Hell are in the balance. Every detail of your life must be lived with an eye on that impending threat.

For if there were no Afterlife, what would be the point of Salvation? Without a threat of Hell why would you need a Savior to protect you from it? (Hint: You don’t)
Open Holy Bible
Let’s look at what the Bible says:

“THERE IS NO AFTERLIFE” – DEATH IS JUST NOTHINGNESS:
“For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5)

NO AFTERLIFE:
“When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them.” (Psalm 146:4)

NO AFTERLIFE:
“human and animal the same, and go to the same place: everything comes from the dust, and everything returns to the dust.” (Eccl 3:20)

NO AFTERLIFE:
“a human being, once laid to rest will never rise again.” (Job 14:12)

RIDICULOUS AFTERLIFE:
“Depart from me, YOU cursed, into the eternal fire…” (Matthew 25:41)

NO AFTERLIFE:
“For what is your life? It is a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” (James 4:14)

NO AFTERLIFE:
“Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.” (Psalm 144:4)

HAPPY AFTERLIFE – EVEN FOR THE CURSED!:
“For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ SHALL ALL be made alive.” (1 Corinthians 15:22)

DELUSIONAL AFTERLIFE:
“For this corruptible body must put on incorruption, and this mortal body must put on immortality.” (1 Corinthians 15:53)

SHAMEFUL BIZARRO AFTERLIFE:
“And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.” (Daniel 12:2)
Who does the shaming? Are crowds of ‘non judging’ angels brought down from heaven just for this purpose?

CONFUSED? BLAME GOD:
“Who makes a person dumb or deaf, gives sight or makes blind? IT IS I, Yahweh!” (Ex 4;11)

The Bible was written by men thousands of years before anyone knew where the sun went at night – it is not likely they would know what happened after death, either.

If the Bible is God’s Word, then God is a mess of willful contradictions.
If it is not God’s Word, but instead a bunch of primitive guesses by ancient men, it would be fair to dismiss all of it as no better than what you might guess on your own.

Beware of those who claim the Bible is clear about Hell and Heaven. They are worse than wrong. They are willfully misleading.

    In the Old Testament there is no mention of an afterlife, the punishment for sin is death. But good old Jesus brought the idea of Hell with him, what a great guy!
    And not only that, he himself contradicted Job 14:12 because not only did he ascend into Heaven, he rose from the dead and brought OTHERS back to life!

    I was there the good Friday Jesus died. Those who knew told me He would rise from the dead in three days, so I showed up on Monday. Seems I missed the big show because it happened on Sunday. I’m confused. It makes about as much sense as having an animal that hops deliver eggs.
