DEATH




DEATH

 

We were not created to die.  We die by our own fault. The death of our body is not inflicted on us by the law of nature nor the intent of God. It is inflicted on us as a punishment for sin.

 

God did not make death, but only after man fell into the disgrace of guilt and deception did God decree the sentence that man should return to earth. 

 

St. Augustine

Death is not evil, it is the end of a good life. Death becomes evil only if you are going to hell afterwards. They then who are destined to die need not be careful to inquire what death they are to die, but into what place death will usher them.

 

St. Augustine
