Where Do we Go When We Die?
With the speed of light, I would want to make a quick response to an article published on GhanaCelebrities.com by stating emphatically that whoever shares in the thoughts of the writer is either an atheist or is attempting a flee from reality.
The subject of death and what follows is more often than not treated with goofy speculations. Ahead of my argument, it is prudent to state that, to make a comparison between the life of an animal of higher intellect and class – human being and other animals that have no sense of judgment and reason is far over the bar.
We do not require Rocket Science to teach us that all humans, unless you are a hybrid of a dinosaur and a camel; are made of the physical, mental, intellectual, a soul and a God-like spirit. After death, these components find their separate ways .The body certainly remains on earth, as the spirit and soul make another transition – where they go is best left for your guess, based on what your credence stems from.
Well, even within the Christian fraternity there still remains the dilemma of where one goes after death; as there seem to be a wide range of perceptions arising from different doctrines. Nonetheless, the common belief that one either makes it by the side of the Maker or ends up at the place of gnashing of teeth is worth noting.
Our Islamic folks also share a common belief. Therefore it will be a self-deceit, a wasted life in a fool’s paradise for one to think and believe that having fixed pupils, a rigid, unresponsive body and a dead brain is the end of life.
Inasmuch as I would want to concord with several of the points in the article of reference, I will blatantly disagree that ‘when you die, you do not go anywhere’.
You will share a different view if you incessantly give a deaf ear to the stories of life after death, or have no business with what we call near-death experiences. If you do, you will hasten to consider the fact that, surely death does not end it all for a person.
