A group discussion has led me to write today’s article. I saw how much it affected one of my friends and she had a question that needed to be answered. I felt as though I was in the same place mentally a while ago so I felt inclined to let her know what I’ve discovered. I asked God to help me understand and I feel as though I got some of it figured out but not all. This is the question presented to the group chat:
“Why do we have death? Like I know of course, if not we’d be over populated, but like there are so many people dying.” —Lisa Martinez
In order to fully understand this question, we have to first look into the question of: Why do we live? I believe we are spiritual beings, beings of pure energy, that have become conscious in of itself and decided to experience the human experience. This includes wide array of senses which actually are beyond the five that we are taught in school. We wanted to experience touch, sight, sound, smell, pain, balance, hunger, and so much more. But there is one sense that we wanted to sign up for that only the most enlightened beings could experience; Love. So we put in the request and God made it so. He created man out of dust (star dust)* and breathed life into the dust and creating man.
As I’ve mentioned before, we are beings of pure energy and if you look into Einstein theory of energy, we see that energy can not be created or destroyed, only transformed. We do not truly die after death!
How can you confirm that we are beings of energy and apply this theory to death?
KRS One had an excellent opener on one of his speeches of Consciousness. He held up a sign and asked everyone to say the name of the sign without speaking it out loud. Basically say the word in your mind. You can try it too. Say the word “Light” without moving your lips and without making a sound. Do you hear the voice inside? Do you hear yourself from within saying the word “light”? What is that? That’s your inner conscious or Subconscious. Only you can hear that. No one else can hear it for you. Where does it come from? It comes from your soul. When you sleep, your Subconscious still plays on in the background, without you being aware of it.
How often have you sat down and thought to yourselves, “Ay yo, I can actually TALK within myself. Like I actually have a voice inside that I can hear clear as day.” Its distinctive in what it says yet you can not depict how it sounds like. Like is it your voice? Someone else’s? But you hear it say the word light. Now when our Subconscious mind is at work, our brain sends electrical signals (ENERGY) that help convey these messages. When people are pronounced clinically dead or brain dead, the lungs and the heart no longer work independently or at all. These are only human physical death. The body no longer works, but what about the mind? The voice you hear inside, that we know as a form of energy, and it can not be created or destroyed. So when we experience the physical death, the soul lives on.
Besides, the idea that death is necessary for avoiding over population, why do we still die? If God is all mighty and can create the whole universe, why could he not create Earth big enough to handle all the souls that exist?
” I guess so we could value life, because if we knew that we’ll never die, then I’m not sure how much effort people would put into living”
Our all knowing God has a master plan in this thing we call life and I think Amanda hit it right on the nail with her statement that we spiritual beings can actually become lazy living a mediocre human experience if we didn’t have a timer ticking behind us each and everyday. It’s a form of motivation for us to live.
If God is so perfect and all knowing why does he allow killings to prosper? Innocent beings die on a day to day basis. How could he allow it?
Rapper Lecrae answers this question perfectly towards the ending of his second verse.
“But then some say, ‘How God exist when this evil stuff in the world keep persistin’?’ Wrong question, ask again. How God ain’t let you feel the wrath from sin? What you thought last night deserves a first class flight to Hell, Where God doesn’t dwell. You got that right, But he brought back life on that cross that night Christ died. You ain’t know that it cost that price? All of God’s anger poured on His Son….. If God is real, He should stop all this evil, ’cause He’s all powerful right? What is evil though man? It’s anything against God. It’s anything morally bad or wrong. It’s murder, rape, stealing, lying, cheating. But if you want God to stop evil, do we want Him to stop all or just a little bit of it? If He stops us from doing evil things, what about lying, or what about our evil thoughts? I mean where do you stop, the murder level, the lying level or the thinking level? If we want to stop evil, we gotta be consistent. We can’t pick and choose. That means you and I would be eliminated. Because we think evil thoughts, If that’s true, we should be eliminated!”
To sum up what Lecrae basically stated already, God used to intervene with man when man did wrong. That is until his Son Jesus Christ died on the cross to allow us to be forgiven for our sins until it is time for judgment. When people question why God doesn’t intervene with murder or rape they forget about lying and cheating and stealing. They pick and choose what should be good and what should be bad. That’s not in our place. So if you truly want God to remove all evil, He might as well remove us. We think bad thoughts, we do bad things because of temptation, but God set up life to be the way it is because we eventually pay the price either later on in life through Karma or after death.
All in all, we live to experience the human experience as ever living spiritual beings. Naturally we die when the body has lived the allotted amount of time given to allow us the ability to experience life and also to limit crowding of the Earth. God allows early death because we have chosen to live life of sin and in order to remove sin as a whole, we must be removed ourselves. God’s Son came to this Earth to convince God that we should be forgiven for our sins and wait until death for us to be punished. He won over God and now we are here. Death is essential for us to Live.
