Death & Life (To Be Continued)

Life is not fair we all know that famous phrase. What makes us think life owes us something in the first place ? What is it about this world, about this life that has us all come to the conclusion that life is unfair or that life is hard ? Is it because deep down inside our being we have some kind of faint shadowy knowledge of a more fair, softer, and more eternal life ? Another question I have is why has the human race been so obsessed with death ? Is it because we are meant to live forever ? I See no other reason for this obsession and fear over death. I will now do my best to explain my views about these two subjects. Let's start off with humanity's obsession and fear over death. Why fear ? Why obsess over finding ways to beat death once and for all ? According to some atheist views death is a "natural" part of life. Well lets pretend we all adhere to this particular belief. The belief that death is a "natural" part of life or a " spot on the circle of life". If death is so "natural" then why are we constantly trying to find ways to prevent it ? Breathing is natural, blinking, and walking are pretty natural also. We don't obsess over finding ways to prevent these everyday activities from happening. And we definitely do not fear these activities or we would end up looking like some kind of idiot, afraid to take a breath or a step. Why fear death ? Because it is an act we were never meant to experience. What went wrong ?  The current condition of humanity comes from the fact that we have fallen away from the God of the Bible. Away from his everlasting and loving presence. The human body became broken. as the years go on the condition of the body becomes worse and worse. The body never improves with age. Genesis chapter 1 verse 27 says 'So God created man in his own image' According to the Bible. God is a perfect being. He is Omniscient, Omnipotent, and Omnipresent. God also gave man free will which I will have to get back to later. In verse 28 of Genesis chapter 1 it says 'And God blessed them". Nowadays in this fallen hurting world. We sometimes consider a blessing from God to be a life changing experience. Try to imagine Gods blessing before the fall of man. Wow!!And before the free will choice of Adam and Eve to disobey God. No sickness, no dying. When Eve is deceived by Satan into eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and then Adam makes a conscience decision ( Example of free will before the falling away of man another example of free will would be Adam naming the animals Genesis 2 :20) to do the same. They are automatically separated from Gods presence here on Earth. By Adam consciously choosing to disobey God the first ugly seed for sin was planted. Ready to bear fruit to sickness, death, hate, anger , violence etc. In his disobedience there was no possible way for Adam or Eve to be in the Lord God's presence any longer. Sin, death, sickness, has no chance standing in the presence of Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient God.( To Be Continued)
