When you will face to face your dying arrival, then you will be very afraid of it. VERY SCARED! If a person had a heart attack and died immediately, no afraid. BUT when a person is in a hospital, this person will experience his EMOTION to face his dying arrival -- SCARED!

I can guarantee you that I am not afraid of death and nor should you be if you are saved. The bible says that God is the God of all comfort (2 Cor. 1:3). So I believe that a true child of God will not be "VERY SCARED" as you say at the time of their "departure", but rather Gods overpowering, all encompassing Love will bring comfort to them at the time of death. You can also die in your sleep. Remember what Paul said?

I am going to be honest and say yes I am afraid of death! I am afraid of pain and suffering...and I am afraid of the unknown process...I am afraid of hurting family members and leaving them alone prematurely.

And yes I'm saved. Heaven is the easy part. The hard part is getting there....and realizing you will be leaving some brokenhearted people behind.

Yes Madeline but you do not have children. That changes alot. Thinking about a little boy (or three) crying and saying "When is mommy coming home" makes death something I hope not to have to deal with for many more years to come.

I don't fear death itself or what is to come afterwards - that is a welcome thought but I do fear the possibilities of the process. For instance, thinking about drowning gives me the willies. I would most definitely be afraid if I was drowning and conscious.


Yeah...I don't get close enough to water to worry about that one. haha.

I worry about car accidents or terminal illness....my mom died in a car accident and I know what it feels like to talk to a loved one one day and then see them all bloody and mangled and unconscious the next. And then terminal illness is just torturous for everyone involved.

Thanks alot, Adam and Eve....

Madeline, its surely not a stupid question. I think its a very smart question. I have conveyed to our congregation that I'm not scared to die, I know that in order to reach that place where there is no more sorrow, death, crying, or pain, I must shed this body, that our Savior took the sting out of death, that the best is yet to come for those who have Jesus as their brother.

I have watched many brave Christians face death, it seems I had more sorrow than they, its just so hard to lose a good close Christan friend who you love, even Jesus wept because a loved one died.

And if anyone will do some research, they can read about several Christians who have face death because of their stand for God, and did so very bravely, we serve the same God they did, the only thing we lack is strong faith.

One brave lady I visited told me, "Bro. Jerry, don't worry about me, I know I'm not going to make it, God will take care of me, but I have some close loved ones who do not know God, that's who I'm worried for."

I did not question who these were, I just asked her right them, "Mary, would you like me to say a prayer with you on their behalf and even ask God to give me and you strength and faith?

Her answer was yes, I held her very weak hand and we prayed, afterwards she gave me a very weak smile and said, "Its much better now, thank you so much"

I said, "No Mary, thank you, your helping me so much" She did not know how much she helped me to have even more faith in God and Jesus.

I spoke to her only a few more short minutes, asked if I could have a hug, she put her weak arms around my neck, kissed me on the cheek, said I'll see you on the other side.

The next day Mary went home to be with our Lord.

Where is our faith?
