The Egyptians' religion showed most clearly their value for afterlife. The Egyptians' were polytheistic and, depending on which Pharaoh that was reigning, a different "god" would be more important. They believed that a person's spirit consists of two parts, the Ka and the Ba. The Egyptians' believed that the Ka was the person's double and life force. When the person died, the Ka would be separated from the body. They believed that the Ba could travel between the worlds of the living and of the dead. Later when the person died, the Ba left the body and joined the Ka. Then the Ka and Ba would return to the afterlife. They believed that when they died, they will go to live with their "gods". That is sort of the same with us. When we die, we go to live with the one and only God, the Lord Jesus Christ. But when the Egyptians' die, that is the end of them, unless they believed in God. The Egyptians' thought it important to go to the afterlife, because then they would live with their "gods".
The Egyptians' architecture also showed their value for death and afterlife. They were willing to suffer for such a long time, just to build a great big grave [pyramid]. They only built the tombs and pyramids so that they could safely reach the afterlife. They also built many temples dedicated to their "gods", and since the grandeur showed how important the "god" or Pharaoh is, most of the temples dedicated to the "gods" of afterlife were most fancy and impressive. They did many things that they thought were good, so that when they went to the afterlife, they would be able to enter into the kingdom of the afterlife. The Egyptians' architecture was very impressive.
The Burials were also very important and showed their want to die and go to the afterlife. They would take away the brain, and put the eternal organs in canopic jars. The Egyptians' thought that the way you dress and what your name was would reveal your identity in the afterlife. They would store away food, clothes, jewellery, and all his treasure within his tomb. This showed their value for afterlife through them taking all their treasures with then to go to the afterlife.
I think the Egyptians' value their afterlife so much, because then they could live with their false "gods". Although they can't keep on living and live with their false "gods" they still think that they would go to the afterlife. Afterlife is very important to all christians, for when we die, we can go to heaven and live with God forever and ever.
Afterlife is very important to everyone. The Egyptian's showed their value for afterlife through many things, like their religion, architecture, and even their burials. Death and Afterlife are very important to all christians.
