Solutions to Death

In part one of this blog series on why we care about the Bible we looked at what the Bible does for us. We saw how it helps us understand and appreciate life. In this second part we’ll see that we care about the Bible because it’s the sole source of the truth about death.

Man sitting in leather chair.

Former New York City Mayor Edward Koch died last week at age 88. Mr. Koch, a Jew, is said to have asked these words be inscribed on his tomb stone. "My father is Jewish, my mother is Jewish, I am Jewish". These are the last words of Daniel Pearl the wall Street Journal reporter slain by terrorists in 2002.

What would your last words be? Words that affirm your faith and forever define your identity? Think this through. By words we live and by words we can shape our eternity in the family of God. To distille a life into one phrase is to know oneself.

Amid the heartbreak and sorrow over the tragic loss of life of 20 beautiful children and six school officials at the Sandy Hook Elementary, has emerged details of selfless acts of heroism on the part of school officials and teachers who gave their lives by standing in harm's way to protect their young 6 and 7 year old students.

Will God Heal Sandy Hook Elementary? Will God Heal Our World?

Out of respect for the grieving parents and family, I don’t want to even mention the name of the murdered little six year old boy I saw in the casket.

I attended the first funeral of 20 massacred children in Connecticut. I was the last in line.

Those words echo in my mind as I read them on Friday, December 14, the day of the deadliest elementary school shooting in history.

That passage comes from Deuteronomy 28:18. It’s part of a larger section of scripture outlining the blessings God promised for obedience and the curses He promised for disobedience. Why would God curse the children of a disobedient nation? At first it doesn’t add up. But today’s events made this point abundantly clear to me.
