    What specifically in your belief system determines salvation?

    We are not talking about day to day behavior necessarily, but the thing that specifically defines your entry into the next plane of existence.

    Belief that Jesus is the Son of God, that dies for our sins, that whosoever believes in him shall know eternal life and salvation.

    Actually, I don't think so.

    Whatever it is that your belief system would dictate allows the next step in your existence: life off of this Earth, reincarnation, trip to paradise, heaven, etc.

    i think what he is getting at is what do you believe happens to you or your soul upon death. Does it continue on, and if so, what are the prerequisites, if any, for it to continue on?

    Then he could have simply just said that.

    When we die our bodies are separated from our Spirits until the day of the resurrection of the just and unjust as Christ taught. Then we will rise in glory and judged according to our actions. Those who accepted the Atonement of Christ will be saved from spiritual death.
