I only live once, and die once. 
And then, my life is evaluated.

Hebrews 9:27

Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment (NIV)

Contrary to traditional religious beliefs, we don't reincarnate.

We only live once, and die once.

And there will be a day of reckoning.

All that will happen in the afterlife is decided while we are still alive. We immediately face the consequences of our earthly decisions when we die.

If one is living for God, then that life will continue to be with God.

If one is living away from God, then that's where that person will be in the afterlife - an eternity away from God.

No amount of prayers from family, friends and opportunists can alter that consequence. The dead loved one has sealed his or her fate.

Heaven is a "no wang-wang zone". True justice is only with God. If one can buy their way in to heaven, then righteousness is useless.
