Column: Scripture teaches us when body dies, spirit lives on

I would like to explore a topic that will be uncomfortable for some. It is a topic that many people try to avoid. They don’t want to think about it, much less talk about it.

Lots of books have been written on the subject. It has been the basis for several TV series. Movies have been made about it. Let’s try to biblically answer the question, “What happens when we die?”

Much of what we read, see or hear on this topic is subjective. The stories sometimes contradict one another. Sometimes they contradict Scripture. We have to be careful not to confuse where we look for answers on such an important topic as this. For Christians, the source of truth is the Word of God, which will form the foundation of my comments.
