I mean if they have faith that they are going to their great reward for all eternity...
i think death fear is pretty strong in all humans
Yes but faith in God is supposed to be stronger.
Simple. Most aren't, except for the possible pain or suffering that might come with death or because they don't want to leave friends, family and the life that they have on earth.
So fear trumps faith in god? Family trumps faith in god's will?
I have also noticed that Christians will keep a loved one alive at any cost to the loved one.
Why not let them pass peacefully into gods heaven?
we all fear the unknown...i have a hard time conceptualizing death....the cold stillness....i am terrified of being buried....(way too much sci fi as a child...way too much) did you know they use to have bells in graveyards....so if you awoke in your coffin you had a string that would ring the bell....and the fear of being buried alive....(read a lot of poe)
even god's children have human faults and many people have gone to their deaths showing faith over fear
Why? They are hipocrits like most Christians are. Faith should overpower ANYTHING
faith can not over come..say a brain tumor....who is that guy benny henn? he says people who dont recover aftering giving him their life savings...simply didnt have faith
If you are a true Christian yes.
They are but a single digit percentage of those who claim to be christians.
