The Mystery Surrounding Creation And Life After Death
Who are we and where did we come from? With different kinds of people, languages, customs, cultures etc, many questions about creation remain unanswered.
What about death? That is more complicated than creation because many have different theories and opinions about death. Some say that the soul goes back to God after death while others believe in reincarnation, that is the soul, upon the death of the body, comes back to earth in another body or form.
However, the Bible says: "For the living know they will die but the dead do not know anything nor have they any longer a reward, for their memory is forgotten. Indeed, their love, their hate, and their zeal have already perished, and they will no longer have a share in all that is done under the sun..."
The book of Genesis says: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Initially, that was what we were thought of at school. Years after this Biblical account, the man now faces the most difficult challenge in believing this Biblical account about creation.
Worldwide, hundreds of people, including so-called creationists, anti-Christ forces, and fundamentalists, continue to change the Bible's account of creation into numerous tales that deviate from what the Bible really says.
The belief that there is no God and Darwin's theory which rejects the account of creation in Genesis, has caused many people to dismiss the Bible account as mythical allegory. It's not surprising to see big churches throughout Europe virtually empty on Sundays, reserved only for the dead to receive his or her last respect before burial.
It's clear that a number of people have accepted Darwin's theory that the Biblical account as many churches are being converted to drinking pubs, restaurants, and library. Even though many still are confused over where man originally came from, some continue to play God by taking someone's life by euthanasia, when he can't bring the dead back to life.
Since God has given the man the opportunity to choose, thus; let those that lean on Darwin's theory continue to do so and others that believe in the Genesis creation account also continue supporting the Scriptures. But one question which many find it hard to answer is: Where do we go after death?
Different religions have different opinions about death, yet another part of the Bible reveals: "For whoever is joined with all the living, there is hope; surely a live dog is better than a dead lion."
Both creations of the human being and death will always remain a mystery because it's something that takes us by surprise. One may cheat death, yet death is inevitable. When it strikes, like the fall of both fresh and dry leaves, it takes away the young and the old.
Doctors struggle to save lives and incubators save babies, but why no one has brought a dead man back to life? Is it true that there is life after death? Where does the soul go after death? Is there reincarnation after death? Are we going to see our loved ones already dead when we also die?
Even though I have no answers to those questions, I can't depend on Darwin's theory, because it has no roots. Since the Scripture says: "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away." I will depend on and believe in the account of creation in the book of Genesis.
