We've devised a lot of ways to say it: 'biting the dust', 'buying the farm', 'kicking the bucket', 'passing away'... But no matter how hard we try to avoid saying it, we have to face the fact that each one of us will die. It's inevitable. What then? Is there something more? The Word of God tells us that there is indeed more to come. In this message, Dr. Merritt explains that we don't have to face death with fear and trembling. In fact, we can know for sure what happens next.
"At the moment of death, the body stays on planet earth, because the body died. But listen carefully. The person inside that body did not die, because the person inside the body and the body outside the person are two different things." --Dr. Merritt
