QUESTION:

In The Bhagavad-Gita it says, "Death is certain for anyone born and birth is certain for the dead."  Do you think that both of these things are "certain?"

Thank you,

Do ancient unexplained artifacts and high technology potentially provide evidence of pre-flood civilizations? Do 800 Billion fossils of all types in the Karoo Bone yards provide additional evidence of a worldwide flood? Does the Bible mention dinosaurs? Is there an easy explanation for fitting dinosaurs on the ark? Is there a reason that scientists cannot do on purpose in the lab what they claim happened by accident? Is evolution the worst theory ever to fit known facts?-- Is there evidence that dinosaurs did co-exist with men in agreement with the Bible and in opposition to the theory of evolution? Do Giant versions of some of today's plant, insects, animals and "Mega" Men prove a stumbling block for evolutionary theories? Hello! Is there an unmistakable Message (from God) in the cells of every living thing? YES! Ooparts & Ancient Technology—Evidence of Noah’s Flood? Twentieth Century Dinosaurs? History, Archeology & Art Crawling with Dinosaurs With Some Size Estimates At 8 to 10 Feet Tall, Meganthropus Would Have Gone in The First Round There Were Giants In the Earth in Those Days—And Afterward Put your hand on the radio? Say this prayer I wrote myself? Become a "Prayer Partner"i.e.; Send money? Though they have hair like Charleston Heston (in his role as Moses after receiving the 10 commandments) What really matters is: What the Bible Says Concerning Salvation—Not Slick-haired Preachers No backwards collars, no funny hats, no special vestments, no accoutrements –no titles such as Father, Rabbi or Teacher as Jesus Commanded; and they called themselves: Christians?

Just wanted you to know that I had visited your website. Nice link. A very comprehensive site. Oh, P.S. "why would the sea creatures die during a great flood?" Jason

Are the living waiting for death and the dead waiting for life? I would think that what you are looking for lies within your definition of life and death. All of those who are physically living in the flesh will one day see physical death unless they are taken up by God himself and transformed. My own belief is that life really and truly revolves around one's identity in Christ Jesus. Those who are not saved are not really living and can be considered the dead awaiting life. Those who are saved, will never see spiritual death and will ultimately live forever with God. However, technically, everyone will live forever spiritually. Wether in torment or in Heaven because Death and Hell will be cast in the "Lake of Fire" where those who are likewise cast into the "Lake of Fire" will live in tormnent forever, and they will never have really known what life is like. That could be what is meant by the "Second Death", resurrected unto a life of death (Revelation 20: 13-15). Even if past civilizations with forgotten technology existed (What was the world relly like before the Great Flood?)it does not, in any way dismiss God's plan of salvation for the world (Romans 10:9). God's justice demanded a sacrifice man could not make. Out of His love for us, He offered a Sacrifice on our behalf (John 3:16-18). I realize that there are many world religions. But these religions sprang from an ancient truth and have been perverted. God's plan of Salvation was and is simple. Living the life is the hard part, this is the understanding of the "strait gate".
