Q&A

How do we refute the "soul sleep" argument?

Catholic Answers Staff  •  8/4/2011

Question:

Some groups, such as Christadelphians, Jehovah&#039;s Witnesses, and Seventh-Day Adventists, claim that we are not conscious between the time of our death and our resurrection but that our souls either cease to exist or are asleep. They cite verses that picture death as a sleep (e.g. Dan 12:2, 1 Cor 15:51). How can we refute this?
