I wrote about death a long time ago, the article is free to download at Muskrat Books , but we don’t like to think about death and dying, though it is and will be real for all of us. I think many young people, especially those sick individuals that commit the shooting of the innocent, don’t have a clue what death is. Sounds funny, I know, but when you grow up with all the violent computer games & television and hateful rap music, what can we expect? The voices to the contrary seem to be mute!
I recently lost my wonderful Mother-in-Law, my own Mother, and a principal in the firm where I work. Where are they now? If you have a secular worldview, a false view, then you believe they are dust, gone, no more. This greatly magnifies the pain of loss! However, if you have a Christian worldview, then you have HOPE!
Resurrection Hope! Hope that one day we will be reunited in Heaven. Jesus redeemed us with His blood on the cross, taking my sins and paying the price of death that I myself should be paying. Our Redeemer conquered death itself and lives to prepare a place for us in Glory…all we need to do to join Him is to believe Jesus Christ is LORD and accept Him as your personal Savior. I look forward to being reunited with my family that has gone on before me, for those that have faith in Christ Jesus, I know where they are!
