Does belief in life after death have an impact on how we live our lives right now? Should it?
Several years ago, I watched a panel of theologians discuss this question on national television and was surprised by their conclusions: All of them, theologians who professed to believe in God, stated that it shouldn't make any difference whatsoever whether there is life after death in terms of how we live our lives. Belief in life after death, they said, shouldn't affect really our daily lives.
