What the Bible says and what the priests say are seldom the same... Psalm 37 10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. 11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. Matthew 5 5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. John 5 28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

Can't answer for other religions, but this is what the Bible says:

Ecclesiastes 9 (New International Version)

  5 For the living know that they will die,
      but the dead know nothing;
they have no further reward,
      and even their name is forgotten.

10 Whatever your hand finds to do,
do it with all your might, for in the realm
of the dead, where you are going,
there is neither working nor planning
nor knowledge nor wisdom.
