What Happens When You Die?



Louie Giglio helps listeners answer the question, “What happens when we die?” Everyone has considered this humbling question but few have investigated what is the most reliable and coherent answer in the person of Jesus. By drawing attention to the reality of eternity, Louie urges listeners to be all the more faith-oriented in the life we are given.

Key Takeaway

1. Your eternal destination is determined before your physical death, not after.

2. God doesn’t send people to hell, our sin did that.

3. The staggering gift is that as God’s wrath was falling toward us, Jesus willingly put himself in harm's way.

1. Jesus believed in Heaven and Hell

2. Our body sleeps in decay until the resurrection of the dead at the return of Christ.

3. Those you love who have died in Christ are alive in the presence of Almighty God.

4. The reality of our eternal destiny is the biggest storyline in humanity, yet most ignored by people obsessed with the trivialities of the brief here and now.


“If you are a believer, death is a seemless transition into the presence of God. If you are without God, death is a transition into a separation from God for an eternity.”
