I'm afraid of the pain and loss of dignity that surrounds death so often but not of death it's self. I'm a Christian and my faith tells me that there is nothing to be afraid of in death, I will go to be with Jesus, even if, for arguments sake, I am wrong in my faith, then I still say there is nothing to fear because after dying there would be nothing, no pain and no understanding. :o)
The Bible tells us that as long as you accept Jesus as your saviour and you repent your sins then you will be accepted. Jesus said to the thief on the cross next to him "tomorrow you will be with me in paradise" :o)
Everyone believes in God Joe, he hides in your psyche, there is a God shaped hole in all of us, some are lucky enough to find the piece that fits, some temporarily fill it, some keep searching, feeling empty and some discover it in their darkest hour but he will come and claim you at some point, the decision will be yours in what you choose to do with that though.
One the whole I have a good relationship with God, although my spiritual connection waxes and wanes, I am trying to be a better Christian. Knock and the door will be answered and all that. Every time I know I have found it answered but I still have to keep knocking if you understand :o)
I'm petrified of dying, but what was once born must die.
dying is hard because you think of all the things you should have taken care of before you go. and its weird to have everything you knew suddenly go away. im probably most afraid i didnt do enough with my life or that the people i really cared about wouldnt know how i felt for them. <br />
and the pain would be awful but the shock would probably take over most of my feelings
ya see i kinda believe in a life after death but it will be a completely different life. things change and we change with them. i wouldnt be the same
its just having hope. some choose to have it some dont.
the truth is very important. but thats not what hope realies on. its what realism relies on.
for example, the future. no one knows for sure whats gonna happen. so is thinking about tomorrow the truth? was expecting your mom to wake you up when you were a kid, so you could be on time for school the "truth"? uh no. hope lies in the future. that none of us know by the way. reality check.
and, you said, "having hope in a silly notion?"
ignorance at its best. science proved the earth was round, and at one time that was a silly notion too. listen to yourself. i feel sorry for you if anything
and ur so wrong. i didnt believe the stories i heard from mommy and daddy to be true right off the bat. not at all. but in the long shot, they seemed most plausible. look at all the religions. none of them have "proof"? duh. if they did i think life would be easier. have you ever taken a philosophy class? in your life? take one and then come back and talk to me. because thats all this "dicsussion" is
I'm not afraid to die no but I am afraid that people who I love will die.
Certainly but I have a mother and father who are both I'll. I'm 21, I love my mother so much and it's not easy seeing her in pain every day, So no way I'm I not going to say I'm afraid.....thank you for taking the time to comment.
I've already done it, 'practice', it's not all that interesting.
Then don't die. Wait...that's impossible because it's inevitable, we're all going to die someday.
r u sure u aren't died right now ...<br />
it's deeper than u think
I thought after death you just don't feel yourself and you go into a deep sleep? What a beautiful dream!
Yes, I do fear death, like any other human being - Whoever says they don't fear it, is a big liar.
i feel like im about to die soon. im not afraid, but very sad. i wish i would've help more.
nope that is one thing that i am not afraid of in life!
No, not at all !!!
Afraid of being finally set free from the constraints and struggles of this shell I'm in? Why should I be? Death is merely a new beginning.
There is no concrete evidence for evolution either,yet it is being taught in schools as if it were fact I still think they should give all the info on both ideas and let people decide for themselves myself,but then independent thought is the last thing the left wants.
And say what you will,immature people that cannot disagree without insults and name-calling only show themselves to be the real idiots.
No need to let the fear that you might be wrong get you so irrational,Joe.You can always change your mind later.
I am afraid of dying <br />
I want to live
it is to not be afraid of dieing, but to be aware that everyone does. So you live your life the happiest you can :)
don't do it then
I am afraid If I die without experiencing some of the things(which are in my list) and without achieving what I want.
No, I'm afraid of life
Not really every day we wake up is another day closer to death : )
