I saw an article called" Top 10 Ways You Could Live Forever
and it made me think about all the movies, novels, science and products
out there to help us live longer and look younger.
We are obsessed with cheating death and remaining youthful forever.
(And why we want to live forever in THIS world is beyond me!)
It seems hard wired in us to yearn
to exist in peak health / fitness and immortality.
I propose that God wants us to fear death and seek immortality.
And the recipe to achieve this is simple.
Believe in Him
Then death is not to be feared,
it is simply a move through a gateway from a world of
aging, disease and mortality
To a world of immortality in a body of peak health and fitness.
The Bible tells us "The wages of sin is death". (Romans 6:23)
We were not meant to die.
When we were created we were made to commune with God
in paradise in a perfect, immortal form.
But when the first created humans
committed the first sin, and corrupted paradise,
they and all their offspring (down to us today)
would no longer be immortal in this world.
When sin was unleashed into paradise the result was
evil, war, illness, jealousy, pride, perversion, depravity
along with physical illness and death for all humans.
We were meant to be immortal in this life,
at some level we know this and seek this.
But God cannot commune with us
in this corrupted, sin-filled world.
So we will die and leave this
corrupted, sin-filled world.
And we will be immortal in the next world.
There is nothing for you to do.
You want to live forever
and you WILL live forever.
But WHERE you will exist as an immortal....
that depends on you.
