No. It is not.The whole issue of salvation is BASED on the after life.
The whole issue of salvation is based on the incarnation of the Logos, His death, His resurrection, His ascension to the throne of the Father having received all authority in heaven and on earth and the sending of the Holy Spirit thereby establishing the Kingdom of God which is here right now in the Church and will come in fullness at Christ's return.
It's not about any "after life". That's what the pagans were concerned with, the life "after" this one in which they escaped this body and this world with all it's ills.
Salvation is about NEW life in Christ.
Those who believe have already entered into the new life in Christ right here, right now; not in the sweet by-and-by.
