    Why makes death and/or even the afterlife extremely attractive to poor people as opposed to wealthy

    people?  Why is death so welcomed by poor, impoverished people as opposed to affluent, wealthy people?

    Grace , I'm not real sure that it  is more important to one or the other  !  My feeling is that poor and wealthy both  tend to believe they can buy their way into heaven by their acts here in life , probably  a more "giving"  attitude exists among the poorer person  ie. 'volunteering' etc. , Yet the richer person can actually give more resources to "buy " their way into the afterlife  .   Do you think there IS a line between the  poor or the  rich ,as to accepting   the existence the afterlife ?   I doubt it .

      The life of the poor is so harsh even hellish that they see death as WELCOMING while the wealthy have a more pleasant life &really DON'T want to leave it! After all if one has HEAVEN on earth with every amenity, you WOULDN'T want to leave it!

    Really as an example most people can relate to is this system of Governments and politics,

      My comment was in error because of my computer repeating it self, sorry for the irritation.  Tried to correct the repeats but failed.
      Thanks to those who understand.

    Because the concept of an afterlife is an equalizer. Someone who was poor and/or unlucky in life, will be rewarded with eternal bliss. And someone who was wealthy and/or lucky, but did bad things, will be punished. It's cosmic justice that is more attractive to everyone (not just poor people) because the alternative is that you had a crappy life and that's the end.

      Well we have to admit this world is a crappy.unfair to all,  even if you do have money and is rich , many can not enjoy it because of sicknesses and death, we all face under Satan's world conditions,  yet there is the best to come under Jesus rule.
