What is Death?

What is the meaning of 'death'? In one of our Sunday services, the guest speaker Bro. Rajkumar Ramchandran explained the meaning of death:

Death is separation. Physical death occurs when the spirit gets separated from the body. Spiritual death occurs when the spirit gets separated from God - its Creator. While physical death merely brings to an end your journey on planet Earth, spiritual death begins the spirit's eternity in hell. Here's how...

"Grave" Sins
The Bible says that "the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23) So when you die a sinner, i.e. without your sins washed away (forgiven), there is no reason why God should allow your spirit to enter Heaven, into His presence. The only other place is hell, far, far separated from God, from where you can never return - neither to Earth nor to God, who created your spirit. This is how you are separated from God - forever! That is why I choose to call sins as 'grave" - they actually ensure that your body is deposited into the grave and your spirit burns forever in hell. So what is the way out?

Jesus Forgives Sins
God knew that we will sin, having inherited Adam's and Eve's genes. He loves us so much that He wants us to come back to Him after physical death. That's why He worked out a simple plan of salvation. Salvation is free, my friend! Unfortunately, sometimes great scholars fail to fathom God's love for us and His simple plan of salvation. So if you aren't a born-again child of God, you need to learn about this plan, now - before you log-in to check your emails! Read this post
