Wagering on the Afterlife

What happens after we die? For some people this is a really easy question to answer, others struggle with it greatly. Personally, I subscribe to the belief that after I die I can return to live with a loving God in another life. I know a lot of people don’t subscribe to such a belief and in fact, may believe me a ridiculous human being for believing in such a thing, but I do.
