That is one perspective that is held by people of other faiths as well.
However. Then there is the other perspective about finding oneself alive, conscious and immediately in the presence of God. Which perspective has testimony and evidence.
"I believe there are two sides to the phenomena known as death. This side where we live, and the other side, where we shall continue to live.
Eternity does not start with death.
We are in eternity now." - Norman Vincent Peale
