What Happens When We Die?

Living forever sounds great...but what actually happens when we die?

English Transcript:
Several philosophers have pointed out and made the case that underlying all of our energy and our action and all of civilization is a fear of death. It's a terror of death. This may be masked, but it keeps surfacing through most of our behavior, and they give an example of four narratives connected to death where we try and respond to it. The first one is the issue of prolonging our lives, whether it's through vitamin cleanses or juicing or plastic surgery or technology, we have a desire to prolong our biological lives. The other narrative is the narrative resurrection that says that we will get our bodies back, that God will resurrect us. Another narrative is the immortality of the soul, that there's a disembodied place that we all go to, or even people who don't believe in those things can often believe that they want to live forever by the sense of legacy, that they want to set up an endowment or live such a compelling life that generations from now, people will look for them. So there is a primal, driving sense underneath all of our behavior that does desire to live forever. I think that Jesus addresses this issue almost better than everyone, and I think he combines all of those things. Uh, Jesus does promise to give us eternal life, not just an extension of human life, but the very life of God inside of us. He promises to resurrect our bodies, uh, that they will be somehow glorious like his. He promises that, that we will have an eternity, that we, that there will be an endless time where we step into the fullness of God's kingdom. And lastly, that works do carry on, that what we do in this life does matter for good or for bad. And he invites us to live in ways that work towards eternal life. So I think that underneath all of our behavior is this fear of death and a longing to solve it, and of all the religious options and philosophical options, I think Jesus weaves them together in the most compelling and beautiful way.

Spanish Transcript:
Varios filósofos han señalado y defendido que subyacente a toda nuestra energía y nuestra acción y toda la civilización hay un miedo a la muerte, un terror a la muerte.
La Curiosidad Colectiva
Esto puede ser enmascarado, pero sigue saliendo a la superficie por la mayor parte de nuestro comportamiento. Y dan un ejemplo de cuatro narrativas conectadas a la muerte donde tratamos y respondemos a ella. La primera es la cuestión de prolongar nuestras vidas. ya sea a través de suplementos vitamínicos o jugos o cirugía plástica o tecnología, tenemos un deseo de prolongar nuestras vidas biológicas. La otra narrativa es la narrativa de la resurrección que dice que vamos a recuperar nuestros cuerpos, que Dios nos resucitará. Otra narrativa es la inmortalidad del alma que hay un lugar al que todos iremos incorpóreos, incluso las personas que no creen en esas cosas, a menudo pueden creer que quieren vivir para siempre por el sentido del legado. Que quieren crear un fondo patrimonial o vivir una vida tan convincente para que las generaciones de ahora, los busquen. Así que hay un impulso primario debajo de nuestro comportamiento que desea vivir para siempre. Creo que Jesús aborda este tema casi mejor que cualquiera, y creo que combina todas esas cosas. Jesús promete darnos vida eterna, no sólo una extensión de la vida humana, sino, la misma vida de Dios dentro de nosotros. Él promete resucitar nuestros cuerpos que de alguna manera serán gloriosos como el suyo. Él promete que vamos a tener una eternidad, que habrá un tiempo infinito en el cual nos adentramos en la plenitud del reino de Dios. Y por último, que nuestro trabajo cuenta, que lo que hacemos en esta vida sí importa para bien o para mal. Y nos invita a vivir en maneras que nos lleven a la vida eterna. Por eso pienso que debajo de nuestro comportamiento existe este miedo a la muerte y un anhelo para solucionarlo y de todas las opciones religiosas y las opciones filosóficas, creo que Jesús las entreteje de la manera más convincente y hermosa.
