What happens to those who do not follow the law?

Post by agnosticatheist »

What happens to Jews and non-Jews who did not follow the law after their physical body dies?
If it turns out there are one or more gods, then so be it.

If it turns out there are no gods, then thank reality that no one is going to suffer forever.

Eh, im well aware of that story. I was looking for support from Tanakh, not the New Testament...

There is no one "Jewish view" on this.

My personal view: the same thing happens to both: they cease to exist.

Judaism, overall, is far more concerned with this life than it is with any hereafter that may or may not exist.
Non-theist. Former evangelical Christian. Former "new atheist." Jewish convert (Reform). Someone who tries to be kind.
