THE MYSTERY OF CREATION AND WHERE WE GO AFTER DEATH


Death should have been the happiest thing to happen to someone after living in this crazy world but many fear to die

Death should have been the happiest thing to happen to someone after living in this crazy world but many fear to die




Death is something many don’t like to talk about because it’s an enemy that ruins a home, takes away our joy and destroys a whole family, yet it’s inevitable. 


Many do ask if we die “where do we go?” It’s hard to give a straight-forward answer. Even though some people have cheated death many times in life, they haven't experienced real death to tell their experience. Above all, a dead man can't even tell the living what death experience is. 

It is a fact, a dead man hasn't any memory after death to record his experience. According to the Bible: “For the living know that they will die,  but the dead know nothing… their love, their hatred, and their envy have now perished” Ecclesiastes 9:5.

Many believe in reincarnation, others don’t, but the Bible promises that there is life after death and that it lasts forever. There is something we need to ask: Why many who have died can’t have a peaceful rest in their graves but often come back to haunt people occupying the houses they were before they died? Does it mean that truly life goes on after death? Or is it because they died in horrible circumstances?

There are many verses in the Bible that speak of the resurrection. John 5: 28-29 reads, “Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.”


Despite all the Biblical quotations, many may still have different opinions and beliefs about death. Death will always remain a mystery and the greatest fear of life connected to the unknown.

We fear death because we are imperfect or our sinful nature. According to Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord," yet death is something we should not fear.


Many seem happy when they think of death in their old age. They don't have anything to worry about because of their good deeds, genuine love and help they offered to people on earth. We can follow them to sow good seeds on earth.That's where the happiness comes from till 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.

Death 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.



The book of Genesis says: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” Initially, that was what we were thought 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, have 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 than 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, they live a normal life without worries.

But the fact that many argue or believe that there is no God have escalated to wrong doings. Some continue to play God by taking someone’s life by euthanasia when those responsible can't bring back a man to life. If one can't create a human being why do you assist someone to commit suicide?

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 these 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.
