Will scientists come up with a way to make death optional? On the subject, there are at least are two schools of thought. The healthspanners who are looking to expand life, and the immortalists who are hoping to do away with death altogether. This was the theme of a recent article in the Toronto Globe and Mail by Leah McLaren. She concluded, “Death may seem frightening…but what is more terrifying is an empty eternal life.” The Bible emphatically states “It is appointed unto mankind once to die.” Fortunately, the Bible also states that God “…gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes on Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” If we receive Christ, we receive everlasting life, and our life here on earth is anything but empty. God gives us peace, joy and satisfaction in the present, and hope for the future.
