Why must we all die?

“There are at least five facts that all must face. We must live (Rom. 14:7); we must die (Heb. 9:27); we must be raised from the dead (John 5:28-29); we must face God in judgment (I Cor. 5:10), and we must live eternally somewhere (Matt. 25:46).” —Paul Wilmoth

  • When I read this I thought of the number of things people try to avoid. People try to avoid life. They would like to avoid death and try to put it as far away as possible for as long as possible. People don’t like the idea of resurrection and judgment because their lives have been lived in sin. And they are really apprehensive about living somewhere eternally. There is much to think on here.

    • You’re right on with that comment, John. Adults can act childish in this respect. If I can’t see it, it doesn’t exist. If I don’t think about it, it won’t happen to me.

What say you?
