Attitudes Regarding Death

Virtually all people, by the time they reach adulthood, have suffered through the loss of friends and loved ones. We don’t live in a bubble and death, as tragic as it can be, is an end result of life. 

Many people are afraid of death, while for others, there is no fear. Some people seldom think about it and others go to elaborate extremes when it comes to their own death. Quite often, our attitude about our own mortality is tempered by our religious beliefs. The question is how you feel about death in general.

  • How do you feel about your own death?

    • I’m afraid of dying
    • I don’t like to even think about dying
    • I’m more worried about the deaths of friends and loved ones than I am about my own death
    • I’m not afraid of dying
    • Other

What do you think?

  1. I know this is a complex subject. I am very agnostic in my beliefs and so my views can be taken free of any religious bias.

    I don’t know where I came from but I am here today.

    Think deeply on the above lines and we would realize that we could exist forever.

    • That is one of the great things about the good news contained in the New Testament of the Bible. The Bible is actually very clear about what happens next. It certainly isn’t something to be anxious about, though a lot of people are.

        • That is the very definition of faith. What a lot of people don’t think about, though, is that we take a lot of things for granted based on faith, though not necessarily spiritual faith. When I go to sleep at night, I have no proof that the following day will have sunlight, yet I believe that it will. That is faith. I wasn’t there when people walked on the moon, so I have no absolute proof that it happened, but I have faith that the television and radio broadcasts of it were true.

          I’ve had a great many situations when I’ve prayed to God for something specific and it has happened, though the chances of it occurring were exceedingly slim. The prayers were in spiritual faith in God, though I’ve never seen him. I’ve seen His works many times, but I haven’t SEEN Him. There are too many things that happen on almost a daily basis that are unlikely in the extreme for me not to believe in God. Having the faith that the Bible is the inspired word of God doesn’t take much more faith than believing in God and Jesus.

          For that matter, the chances that so many people could contribute to the bible over a period of over 1,100 years, in three languages, sometimes without knowing that the others even existed, and have it all come out in agreement and without contradiction is far too phenomenal and unlikely for it not to be the word of God.

          Some of the best-known evangelists started out as scientists who tried really hard to disprove the bible. When they couldn’t do it, they became Christians.

          I should really share this as one or more articles. The ‘proof’ is irrefutable, though not everyone will or can accept it.
