Scripture: John 11:25, John 11:11, Luke 8:54-55
"The Bible teaches that God will judge the lives of every human being, deciding the eternal destiny of each person who ever lived. The execution of the divine sentence, however, does not occur immediately after the death of each individual but only after his or her resurrection. Until then, both the saved and the lost sleep unconsciously in the dust. The resurrection, by itself, is neither a reward nor a punishment. It is the precondition to receiving eternal life or condemnation."
