  2. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Death is a matter of course. That is to say, it is a natural and expected thing. In other words, every living human will surely die someday. Yes! you heard me right. Even Jesus Christ (God incarnate) who was fully human and now fully God tasted it (death). So, who are you? and what makes you think you won't taste it (death) someday? Anyway, never be scared about it (death). Because, it (death) is just a transition from mortality (physical world) into immortality (afterworld), that is that (period). ~Emeasoba George
