What do Christian Scientists believe happens after death?

I'm doing a project for school, so do any of you know what Christian Scientists believe happen to them after they die? Because it's for school, a cited source would be incredibly helpful. Thank you.

    It seems that no one on here has heard of the sect "Christian Scientists." (They are confusing it with what mainstream Christians believe scientifically.)

    You would do better Googling the term and finding some sites that give more information on them.

    Here's one link:

    Christian Science was the invention of HUMAN beings. Mary Baker, who was born in 1821 "...was in constant pain and became preoccupied with the question of health. Mary was a semi-invalid for years afflicted with a spinal weakness that caused her spasmodic seizures, other complications amounted to her complete nervous collapse." Now there's someone I would want to base all my beliefs about God on....

    She also "became involved in mesmerism such as hypnosis and the practices of spiritualism and clairvoyance".....again, these are things the Bible SPECIFICALLY teaches AGAINST...and again, this is NOT the sort of person I want defining my (or any) religion.

    In 1873 she divorced husband #2 (first huband had died early on). She then got involved with

    Phineas P. Quimby who was practicing "mind over matter" healing called "Christian Science". She ended up plagarizing "his manuscripts and teachings". Wow....again, another reason to hold this woman's ideas up as a religion. She's a thief, and into the occult.

    "Christian Science claims for itself that the Bible is its final source of authority. When one tunes into their TV presentation they will see them read from the Bible and then Mrs. Eddy’s interpretation from her Science and Health. It gives the impression that they are into the Bible. But the fact is if one listens carefully everything that is said is reinterpreted to mean something other than the way it was written."

    The saddest thing about Christian Science is that none of the Christian Scientists seem to understand the one FATAL FLAW in their "beliefs". They think that you don't really catch a cold....if you have a red nose and a stuffy head you only THINK you have a red nose and a stuffy head.....and should be able to heal yourself.

    So the question is....why do Christian Scientists die?

    The Bible says this and science proves it.

    (Ecclesiastes 9:5) 5 For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten.

    (Ecclesiastes 9:10) 10 All that your hand finds to do, do with your very power, for there is no work nor devising nor knowledge nor wisdom in She′ol, the place to which you are going.

    You can quote the Bible! I assume that you are in a Christian School! so don't be afraid!

    Ecclesiastes 3:19 (New International Version)

    Man's fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; man has no advantage over the animal. Everything is vanity.

    Job 7:9 (New International Version)

    As a cloud vanishes and is gone, so he who goes down to the grave does not return.

    The truth of the matter is that you will simply return to Earth in another body to finish your journey.

    The referenced books are the clearest books in the world on the subject of life and death. The clarity is too much for most people, even super-intelligent scientists. I invite you to know what is true for you, me, and everyone else on this planet.

    I dare you to read those books and then tell me that God is not here with us right this very second. I DARE YOU!

    They start to rot!

    Ecc 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

    Man (adam) was created from the dust of the earth. when we die our bodies return to the earth as it decomposes!

    I dont have your answer, but I do know that Mary Baker Eddy, founder of American Christian Scientists was buried with a telephone in her coffin so she could call from the other side....

    No one ever got a call.

    Hell is mental anguish, not a place of separation from God. Heaven is harmony and bliss, not a place of reward.

    Creationists believe that once they die, there is a waiting period, until Jesus Christ comes back, and then they go to heaven. if you can list the Bible as a source.

    "Christian science" is the greatest oxymoron in the history of the english language. Why would anyone care what these sad, confused people believe about anything.
