By Harvey Tobkes

On the subject of heaven and dying, why do people fear death? Almost nobody wants to die, we all choose life. Yet, all religions glorify the pleasures of Heaven, so why do believers live their lives in fear of going to their reward? The general feeling is that the end of life is the worst thing that can befall us? How do we know that death is much better than life on earth? Nobody has ever returned to give us the answer.

If we really knew for certain that death was better, everyone would commit suicide in order to go there.

What a dilemma!
