Death is part of life. It’s part of being a creature. Everything dies. Every creature gets a certain allotment of time, and then it’s over. When a dog dies, that’s it. The end. When Cats die so ends the story. Slugs, lizards, bacteria, etc. There is this life, and that’s it. There are, however, two exceptions this rule. The first are the Angels. They are creatures. They are created beings. God made them. They do not die because they are purely spiritual, so they don’t die, don’t have kids, don’t eat, and so on. The other exception is us. People. People are a little more complicated. We are physical and spiritual. Yes, our physical bodies will die, but that isn’t the end of the story.
