Regardless of a person’s religious beliefs, it is common for people to experience death anxiety. The fear of the unknown and the possibility of becoming nothing can paralyze a thinking person. All religions offer an explanation of what happens at death, so how do we know what is true? The only one who can tell us is the one who created us - everything else is speculation. Fortunately, our Creator did not leave us in the dark about death, so we do not have to fear death. The wise King Solomon wrote in the book of Ecclesiastes about 3,000 years ago these inspired words - “The living are conscious that death will come to them, but the dead are not conscious of anything, and they no longer have a reward, because there is no memory of them. Their love and their hate and their envy are now ended.” He added: “Whatever comes to your hand to do with all your power, do it because there is no work, or thought, or knowledge, or wisdom in the place of the dead to which you are going.”—Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6, 10, The Bible in Basic English.
So the Bible teaches that no part of a human survives death. But that doesn’t mean the end for us - there is a beautiful hope we can look forward to. See the links below for more information.
