Don’t get sidetracked into discussing it. I normally ask people what they think they will come back as and what they would like to be in the next life. I may ask what they did to merit coming back in this life as a human being, and who is in charge of dealing out all the new bodies…is it God? But I do it in a lighthearted way. Then I say, “If there is a place called heaven, do you think you are good enough to go there?” Then I take them through the Law. I also mention that the Bible says “it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment” (Heb. 9:27).
Psalm 78:39 For He remembered that they were but flesh, A breath that passes away and does not come again.
