Good Morning November 27

A panel of scientist recently discussed the topic, “What happens to the soul after death”. It was aired on the Science channel. Their responses ranged from – a person simply ceases to exist, to an examination of near death experiences. They were all total speculation, and came to no conclusion. Well, of course they couldn’t. They were trying to discuss scientifically an area where science has nothing to say. It is a question, however, for which all people desire an answer, and most faiths seek to give. There is one historical event that speaks definitively to the question. That is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is an event that has stood the test of historical analysis. Jesus passed through death into life, and has over come death for all time. Further, Paul assures us that “The one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you in his presence. “(II Corinthians 4:14) Science can speculate all it wants about what happens to the soul after death, but our faith rests on the truth that because Jesus lives, we shall live also.
