    Religions may say anything but they cannot give eternal life to anyone. Only God is eternal. Eternity cannot be obtained by any means. It is a natural one. All human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games. After death no one lives in any form and there is no afterlife. There are spirits but they are separate elements. Spirits are not eternal beings.

    There is no hell or heaven for human beings. They are only for spirits. I guess that the heaven is just the sky and hell is the prison for spirits. Good spirits are free to go anywhere in the sky but bad spirits are put in prison for certain years. I guess that certain evil spirits are destroyed completely. Spirits' lifetime is limited. If what they (spirits) have said is true then they live approximately for 400 to 500 years. This is close to the Indian Hindu's belief that a human being has seven births. That means Hindus believe in reincarnation but I don't.

    God doesn't watch each and every human being at the same time and cannot live with each and everyone to guide them. These works are done by the spirits. God had created different kinds of spirits for various purposes. He had made the spirits to watch, guide and determine the destiny of the human beings from their daily activities, talks and thoughts too. Your past determines your present and your present determines your future. God has given freewill to all creatures including human beings. According to this, all human beings have all right to live a life as they wish. But if it happens to be bad and hurts someone, they have to face the consequences. These consequences are created by spirits. It's a natural system. After death no one lives in any form. Heaven and hell are only for spirits, not for human beings. God is a mystery even to the spirits. Spirits are not eternal beings but their lifetime is long. Spirits are separate elements. A human being during his/her lifetime is living with many spirits which have joined one by one since birth. They are knowledge, skills, feelings, emotions, interests and everything. These spirits are your consciousnesses and memories. Even thoughts are not your own. For example, when you want to take a decision on a subject, one after another the spirits think and you just listen, choose or reject the ideas which they transmit to your mind through your brain in the form of thoughts. Brain is just a media to connect the spirits to your mind. A mind is just a computer's mind. A mind is you. After the destruction of a computer completely you will not get it's mind. The same is the case with the human beings.  A human being doesn't have a spiritual body. Soul is nothing but an energy needed for the functionality of a body. It is not a spirit or anything else. A body's functionality is based on the auto mechanism.  After death all spirits which accompanied a person quit and go to different places searching new bodies. No one lives after death in any form. All human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games.

    God offers eternal life. The Church He founded makes that fact known.

    Religion does not offer eternal life, God does. John 3:16.

    “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life."

    Pretty much all of them.  After all, insecurity and fear of death are the fundamental basis of religion.   Hindus and Buddhists suggest eternal life in a cycle of reincarnation with moksa or nirvana to break the cycle and live in contentment in oneness with the consciousness of the universe. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all suggest eternal existence upon death in proximity to their god in exchange for belief and action or either or neither or both depending on the sect or cult. In the latter two everyone not up to snuff with the contradicting convoluted rules suffers forever.

    Most of them pretend to. 

    Most Christian churches pretend to.

    But only one church offers all that God gives his children today.  That is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    None.  Eternal life is gained only through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, by God's grace alone.  No religion will gain you eternal life.

    Basic Summary of beliefs in regard to Eternity (I'm sure it is flawed because it is based on my understanding of religions)

    Pantheism - God is a force of nature - you go back to the cycle of nature when you die. Become one with everything - you 'life force' defused into the Universe. 

    So you could say 'eternal life' in some vague sense, but not like YOU, as an individual survives death, intact. 

    Hinduism - Many gods - Your soul cycle through multiple live for an eternity. Some souls will attain a certain level of 'enlightenment' and may dwell in the place of the gods, but most will just keep getting reborn into new bodies. There is an eternal element to this - but not really a 'heaven' or 'utopian' existence.

    Budhism - No God - Your 'soul' cycles through multiple lives until you finally reach a state of Nirvana -- that is, YOU, as an individual, ceases to exist - You finally realize that life is pain and suffering and that NOTHING matters. You then basically stop reincarnating. You continue to 'exist' in the sense that OTHERS remember you. But you, as an individual no longer exist.

    Judaism - God is personal - If you follow the ten commandment and try to cooperate with your creator, then you will spend an eternity WITH HIM. Otherwise, your soul is destroyed and you cease to exist 

    Christianity - Jesus is God - If you follow the ten commandment, believe in Jesus Christ,  and try to cooperate with your creator, then you will go to Heaven until Jesus returns, at the end of time. God will then create a NEW world that is perfect and we will live as individuals in this new paradise, forever. 

    Islam - God is master - God is our master. If we love him, then he will love us in return and if we follow his commandments, then we will go to Heaven and be happy for the rest of eternity.

    Quite a number offer it, but there is no sign that any of them can deliver on the offer.
