3.What is your belief about human nature and the afterlife?As a Christian, my belief in human nature is that because of the fall of Eve, and consequently, Adam, we inherited a sin nature and the need to be reconciled to God through His son, Jesus, without which there is only eternal damnation. Also, this belief faith tells me that there is a God and that we will one day be in heaven with God and Jesus and all of our loved ones. This also ties in with my belief in the afterlife because after we die we will live inheaven in our new bodies with no more pain and suffering. It will not be on a physical plane but more in the spiritual one.4.What is your belief about knowledge?Christians believe that knowledge is the faith in our belief that God exists and is waiting to bring us up to heaven when we are ready.
