A Death Test is an Outcome Measure that purportedly manifests only after death. A death test pushes the outcome measure for Authentic Spirituality into the next life. It says a religion works because it elevates you after you are dead.
Death tests are spiritual antistandards that undermine critical thought, draw your attention away from your current reality, prevent you from seeking validity and assurance in this life, and allow religions, gurus, priests, and prophets to avoid responsibility. Death tests divert attention from the failure of a spirituality or religion to provide authentic Connection experiences.
