Do people have a second chance to be saved after they die?

by Matt Slick

No, people do not get a second chance after death in order to be saved.  The Bible tells us in Heb. 9:27, “And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment.”

There is no place in Scripture that tells us about anyone receiving a second opportunity to receive Christ after he dies. Unfortunately, this is how it will be for countless people.  When they die, they face judgment. This is why the Bible says that now is the day of salvation (2 Cor. 6:2).
