  • I am not afraid of death because I believe there is another life after this one.
  • I have never been in the presence of anyone( whether they believed in God or not ) who was afraid of death, though they knew they were dying. I suppose they know, or *see* something we aren't privy too...yet. So I hold out hope that when my time comes I will not be afraid either.
  • My thought is life without death would be like reading the most perfect novel ever written only to find someone had ripped out the last chapter. Life's grand finale and the end of something as fabulous as this life should be anticipated without fear. I'm not saying relish the ending, but simply anticipate that it WILL happen. As Jim Morrison once said, none of us gets out of here alive. You do know that FEAR actually stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. Chances are whatever it is that you are afraid of in death, is just false evidence anyway.
  • "and though i walk through the valley of death, i shall fear no evil. for i played some card games with 'em last week." yes i made that last part up. the true part to it is "for god is with me blah blah blah." the true reason why i don't fear death is because i accept it as an inevitability.
  • http://www.watchtower.org/e/20020601/article_01.htm , this is my view!
  • If you knew ahead of time that you were going to be born, would you be afraid of life? If your answer is no, use the same logic and forget your fears; why be afraid of death simply because you know ahead of time that you're going to die?
  • No, for my Jesus conquered death, and since my soul is His, I shall not fear death, no more than He did on the cross, in full knowledge that He would rise again on the third day. Jesus will give you dying grace and dying peace, so ask and He will answer.
  • Yes. I don't let it eat at me and waste too much time thinking about it, but I do have some fear. It's not so much death itself I fear as the possibility that there is nothing thereafter. I fear that if my beliefs are wrong, that nothing actually follows this life. It is that 'nothingness' of no longer thinking and 'being' that I fear. If I knew how to overcome it, I wouldn't fear it!
  • no ... it took my dying to over come that fear, i've died 3 times already and i've been gone for over 12 mins ... thats long enough to tell you that nothing happens, if it hurts it hurts, thats the end of it ... theres nothing after it it, just the long dark
  • yes, I'm afraid of death, so I am just avoiding it. so far so good.
  • It is normal to fear the unknown. But you can overcome this fear. When Jesus died on the cross, he paid the penalty for man's rebellion. When He rose from the dead, he conquered death. That is why it is written:1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. If we no longer fear the punishment of death, it has lost its power over us. If we trust the One who has been through death and out the other side, we have no fear. AS Paul wrote in the Bible: 54When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: "Death has been swallowed up in victory." 55"Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" 56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
  • Not scared at all of it. In fact, I look forward to it. I will either be at peace in nothingness, or (I believe) with my loved ones. My fear during life is that I won't be with the one's I love forever.
