Death is inevitable. The fact of death is certain. The date of death is uncertain. Do you realize that human beings are the only creatures who know they are going to die and therefore they are the only creatures who are desperately trying to forget it? If you don't believe that, just start talking about dying and watch people hit the conversational remote button and change the channel. In this message, Dr. Merritt tackles the sometimes uncomfortable subject of death, and the hope and promise that there is more for us than this life.
"It is impossible for anyone who personally has a relationship with Jesus Christ to die spiritually. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ and you would like to meet a person who cannot die, go look in a mirror." --Dr. Merritt
