Why Do We Fear Death?

 

My dad was a conservative physician, a lay reader in the Episcopal Church and as honest as Abe. He never exaggerated a thing in his life. But after open heart surgery told me he had a Near Death Experience.  He was very different.  I was shocked when he said, “death has nothing to do with religion…it’s just about love and none of us has anything to worry about when we die.” He said it was serenity and bliss beyond description.

I realized, that’s what Christ told us!

Christ said God was a god of love and forgiveness, and that He only asked that we love and help those less fortunate than ourselves. Original Jewish Christianity was just that simple for 300 years! That’s not what it is now…

Thomas Jefferson said, “The church perverted to purest religion ever preached by terrifying the masses for the purpose of gaining wealth and control.” The Romans changed the religion with their brimstone tradition when they commandeered it in 325 AD.

Joseph Ratzinger (pope) quit his first seminary, because they conceded “there were two separate and opposing Christianities in the second century. The first was the Jewish Christianity of Jesus and the second was the gentile ‘Roman Christianity’ of Paul. They noted that Paul was indifferent to the teaching of Christ and the opponent of the religion of love Christ came to announce to the world.” Catholic Encyclopedia

Christianity evolved into a religion that taught us to fear God and our day of judgment. “All must come before the judgment seat of Christ.” We’ve always been taught to fear death. That’s wrong… That was not the teaching of Christ… That was the teaching of Paul and the Romans.

We’re going to have a hard time understanding that Christ’s message was so simple… Most of us won’t get it till we die… God is only love, so death is nothing to fear… We’ll just fall into His bliss and serenity! Millions have already experienced this modern revelation. There’s a tsunami of Near Death Experience confirmation from people all around us swept from the brink of death by defibrillation resuscitation everyday. They’re learning that death is nothing to fear.

Retrain yourself to live without fearing death! Enjoy your life to the last day…and just be compassionate to those who are less fortunate.

Truly, Brad O’Donnell
