My faith is not always strong. Sometimes I wonder if there is life after death. One thing I always have wondered is, if we won't know the people we have loved on earth how can it be called Heaven? I am not being smart. I do no t fear death, mebay because I am older but I don't want to die. Sometimes I strongly beleive in God, but sometimes I doubt and I hate the pulling.

working 24/7 didn't do me much good, I experienced burn out at the age of 38 and only started to live again after my lil baby born January.

Now I fully intend by Gods Grace/mercy to live more closely to Christ and dedicate the rest of my life serving him.
---Carla5754 on 8/1/08


In difficult times it makes it hard to want to go on but in good times you want to at the very least have the opportunity to be able to live happy.

I hate death despite it being a process of life at one time you looked forwards to it being at the end of life's journey now ith so much going on it can stare you in the face sooner than later.

The only hope you have is in Christ Jesus but I hope and Pray to be able to live long enough to say I have run the race and finished the course.

Death takes your loved ones away from you and that can't be fun, Many of my family members are not saved just My mum and 2 uncles so there still a lot of work to do.
---Carla5754 on 8/1/08


I say, "come on Jesus"! I actually loved B and C. A, perhaps, if certain loved ones are saved. Now, one I know will be, "my Son", because of me. "Jesus told me so". What a God I serve! So, yes, I can include A, also.

The Word says we should occupy until He comes. That means we should fulfill our calling on earth, occupying, living life to the fullest in Christ Jesus until He calls us home.

I don't think that means we should be focusing and concentrating on death. I think you would only do that if you were severely depressed.
---Donna on 6/28/08




It will be the most exciting adventure of my life. I hope that it only happens when God has allowed me to do as much as possible for Him. Like an exam, there is a bit of fear that I have not done everything properly in my studies and might fail the exam. However, I hope to be able to say that I did my very best. I hope to finish the race and have a good testimony.
---frances008 on 6/27/08


see this question as an obsession with death.

The Christian thinks on life, not death.
If you're focused on "death", you don't have life that comes from knowing your Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus.
---Donna on 6/27/08

I know my Lord and Savior, Jesus.
That's why I have an obsession with my death.

I want to spend my eternity with Jesus.

Focusing on my death helps me to remember my reason for my hope while I am alive on earth.

Rev. 20:14 describes DEATH and hell being cast into the lake of fire. Rev. 21:8 says they shall be cast into the lake which burneth with fire and brimestone which is the second death. Death here is mentioned as a NOUN not an adj. again if only believers live forever why then does Christ describe them as being in torment by the flames.
---evangelistjerry on 10/27/07


part 3 also there is a big difference between Mat. 10:28 saying those that cannot KILL the soul and the one that can DESTROY the soul. Big difference between kill and destroy. You can destroy some thing or some one without taking the life from them, destroy does not always mean to put a complete end to, it also means to be beyond repair, those in hell are beyond repair or beyond salvation, (too late).
---evangelistjerry on 9/21/07


doug, if believers are the only ones that live forever then please explain the rich man in hell saying that he is in torment, yes it is a parable, but with a point. Please explain Jesus describing the weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth 7 times in the NT, explain EVERLASTING destruction, punishment, and fire as described by Jesus. If they don't live forever then why keep the fires of hell burning forever???
---evangelistjerry on 9/21/07


Part 2 I do believe that some souls may be destroyed, but as Christians are judged by their works, so will the lost be judged. Those that done more evil will be punished more, which again discredits only believers living forever. If all lost souls are just destroyed then why are they judged by their works also as it says in Rev. 20:12 & 13.
---evangelistjerry on 9/21/07


Doug, I so agree with you.
Believing in eternal hell is not what God had in mind for any of us. It would also deny us the choice God gave us. Good research.
---holly on 9/21/07



The doctrine called "Conditional Immortality" is what will settle this all.

Please study it.

The soul is not immortal. (Matt 10:28)
The wages of sin is death (Rom 6:23)
Death is the punishment on Judgment Day. (Matt 25)
It is eternal because it will last forever. (2 Thes 1:9)
The wicked are destroyed (Phil 3:19)

Only believers will live forever (John 6:58)

---Andrea on 9/19/07


I choose to answer this question by it's opposite question. What is eternal life? Eternal life is knowing God and His one true Son, Jesus Christ. The alternative to that should be a concern.
---Linda on 9/19/07


greetings.It is interesting in that many people believe that death is something other than it's definition.

How do I feel about death. I will tell you if I found out tomorrow that I have cancer I would not worry. Anytime Jesus wants me He has my permission to come and get me. Praise GOD.++

Believers in immortality from birth must reinterpret the Bible to say:
Those:
*who are destroyed are not destroyed.[James4:12, 2Peter 2:12, 2Peter3:7]

*who perish do not perish. [1Corinthians1:8: John3:16]
*who die do not die [Romans6:23] [Death isnt death]
The end of the wicked is not their end. [Philippians3:19, Hebrews6:8]
Those who are consumed arent consumed [Hebrews10:27]
Mortals are born immortal, [1 Timothy6:16]
The second death is not a death, [Revelation 21:8]
---doug on 9/19/07


The root of this problem is the Greek view that all souls are immortal. This is not scriptural. The words Immortal and Immortality are used only of God or the saved. (1 Tim 6:16, 1 Cor 15:54). Humanity must seek immortality (Romans 2:7). The text clearly says that the wicked are completely destroyed (Matt 10:28). Destroyed means destroyed. It is the same greek word as perish in John 3:16. Look it up. This will happen on Judgment day.
---doug on 9/19/07


1st of all there is no place in the bible that says when you die you dont know or feel anything without misinturpating what you've read,don't confuse hell and the lake of fire as one place, if you die without christ you go straight to hell and suffer until the day of judgment and if you die in christ you go to a place of rest where the prophet samuel was. hav'nt you read of the souls that cry out to the lord and ask him how much longer before you avenge us. sounds to me their quite aware of somethings.
---Duane_Martin on 9/19/07


Nobody totally understand death. No body wants to die. I don't think. People have always feared death but when we understand death, we no longer fear it. some people put a lot of stock in these down here on Earth but nothing compares or will compare to the Glory in Paradise. This is the hope all Christians are looking forward to.

Lisa- I like that! NEVER DIE. But there's also a place in the Bible that says, as Jana said, that we know nothing, till Christ comes. I like to believe what I feel in my heart- that my son is watching over me. It just shows how we can't take the Bible literally and it is the messages conveyed to each of us, in our hearts, when we read it, that really matter.

It gives me great concern if you truly know the Bible? C certainly concerns me..how can you be happy at death when you will know nothing at all? The Bible says when u die, u will know nothing, hear nothing, see nothing, feel nothing or have knowlege cos you are dead..k'put..out of action..till Christ comes..
---jana on 9/12/07


Emcee - you are a squirrelly old man - But you can be quite a testimony of the love of God. I'm sorry you've lost your daughters but I'm so glad you will one day rise with them Be blessed.

Holly:: I have been through the mill We lost 3 daughters .But that is not death that is a part of Life.Death is complete severence.No GRACE from God for all eternity by living in sin & dying in sinThat means you are LOST TO GOD-DEAD TO GOD FOREVER.end of story. Death IN God is living in God in his grace
---Emcee on 9/11/07


No Holly...I was not implying that YOU say "kooky" things...it's just that others on this site have been accusing me of being other people and using multiple names, that is what I meant. I just wanted to clarify that I am me and you are you and we are two different people. Emcee has already confused us and thought you were me on another blog posting. And...I am very sorry about your loss...my sincere condolences.
---Holly4jc on 9/11/07


Jesus even wept when Lazarus died...Even the Lord is moved and troubled with sadness when those he loved die....We are no different.

Even Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead...and still had wept.
25Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies, 26and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?
WILL NEVER DIE.......NEVER DIE....NEVER DIE.....alive after we die on earth...
---Lisa on 9/11/07


Holly4jc - I know you didn't mean to imply I say 'kooky' things.

Emcee, obviously death is a part of life. You missed my point completely. When you have a child die, you know that death was not meant to be part of life - thus the evil - that is why it will be done away with. Death came about with original sin.
---holly on 9/11/07

Before I start getting accused of kooky things...I want to make it clear that the "holly" that has posted on this blog is not me, I am always "Holly4jc".

Thanks! :-)
---Holly4jc on 9/9/07


Emcee we do not just come into this world to die, and please keep in mind that this is my opinion. We come into this world to praise and worship the true and living God, and our Hope is in Jesus Christ for however long we live in these earthly bodies. I do not believe that death is evil because I, as Holly lost my son last year to cancer. But I know that he is in a much better place, and that one day I will see him again.
---Cynthia on 9/9/07


Holly::"Death is evil"you say. What do you mean by evil?Your post is contradictory death is not evil Holly your grief is what is marring your understanding of what happens after death Eternal bliss or Eternal loss.Would you deny your son this eternal bliss?Death is inevitable & a fact of life we come into this world to DIE.
---Emcee on 9/9/07


Jerry, I totally agree. Death is evil. I lost my 23 year old son recently and I can promise you that it is. God even says it is. That is why he helps me to bear it. That is why he says death will be eliminated and we will live eternally. Death separates us from those we love. It is evil.

I love the story I heard about a famous minister (sorry don't remember his name lol) who, when asked if he feared death, said yes, he did. Then he went on to say that God was giving him grace to live, and when the time came for him to die, he knew God would give him grace to die. I thought that was soooo cool! :)
---Mary on 9/8/07


jerry6593: "What is this? "Jim Jones II - The Saga Continues?" Most of you sound like some sort of pagan death cult."

We are not in paradise yet. Jesus hasn't return yet. Death is as inevitable as paying taxes and war. We die so that we may live.
---Steveng on 9/8/07


jody matin..Ty for your comments. I am just going by what I have expereinced with the people I know who have been sick and have died. And none of them want to die. From my life expereince, I have gathered info that people really don't want to die. It is just human nature to want to live.
panic sets in and they feel they would do anything to get more life on earth. so when you are dying it is hard to feel calm...all you want to do is fight to live.
---Lisa on 9/8/07


What is this? "Jim Jones II - The Saga Continues?" Most of you sound like some sort of pagan death cult. Death was never God's intent! He created Adam and Eve to live forever. Satan brought in sin and now we have to die. The last ENEMY to be destroyed is death. Death is you enemy - not your friend. A true Christian looks forward to the return of Jesus and hopes to be translated without seeing death. But if we die first, it is OK since we will be caught up TOGETHER with them in the air.

Lisa) Bless your heart! Did you notice that you are saying YOU to everyone? It's called projection. You are projecting how YOU feel on everyone else. Trust that everyone else truely are not extensions of you and are different. They are not lieing as you suppose. I know this because I am one of them. I would rather be with Jesus & m not afraid.:)
---jody_martin on 9/8/07


By the way the world is, I can't see anyone wanting to live any longer than they have to. Many people are on some sort of longevity drug therapy to make them live longer.

As for me, I welcome it. I do not want to be on man's drugs or machines to keep me living. Meanwhile, I have a short amount of time on this planet so I'm going to introduce as many people to Jesus as possible by spreading the Kingdom of God and how to get there.
---Steveng on 9/7/07


Two verses come to mind. 2 Corinthians 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. This is better than living in this sinful and fallen world.

Or as Paul told the people at Philippi in Philippians 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

We cannot even begin to imagine what God has planned for our inheritance.
---denna7667 on 9/7/07


Tell the truth.
It will be sad to die.
You will be sad to leave your loved ones.
You and everyone are afraid of death.
it is human nature....can you imagine losing the breath of life? That is scary.
But..we know because of faith in God we will move on to a better place with God. And that is consolation and comfort. we know we can call on Him when we are dying and in despair and He will help us.
Amen!

When I think of death, I think of what Paul said that he would rather die but it was to the best interest of the Gentiles he served for him to live. I feel like that too. I would love to be with Jesus but I feel that my family would be devastated by my absence and that I still have work and growth to accomplish here on earth. I don't want do die on a bad day. ha.:) I want to be in right standing with God.

When it comes down to it, no one in their right mind is looking forward to their death. The way I feel, is like most of everyone else. Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die. If a person is a true Christian, God will take the sting out of death. O Death where is thy sting?
---Rebecca_D on 9/3/07


Blessings mima I would have to say my answer would be C. As a christian, I am looking forward to death because my hope is in Christ Jesus. Also, based on 1 Corinthians 15:54-57, and Philippians 1:21. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. There is no fear of death for a child of God.
