In this thesis I attempt to provide an original argument for the continuance of each individual human person past physical death. I do this by describing the relationship between God and everything in the world that is not-God (“contingent entities”). I speak to how this applies to the different types of contingent entities God might choose to sustain over various time horizons. The argument states that, if a human being has immaterial properties, then it is likely that it will be sustained past physical death due to it having ends-in-itself. I conclude that human beings have immaterial properties, and therefore will be sustained past physical death.
