    Why do we fear death?

    We fear death because it is the great unknown. Nobody knows exactly what happens to us when we die. Religions teach us of the existence of a heaven, but we don't know what that heaven will look like or if we are 'good' enough to enter heaven. So basically, I think the fear of death boils down to the fear of not knowing.

      The Bible compares death to sleep. It speaks of "falling asleep in death." (Psalm 13:3).  When we die, we will just return into dust again. But like sleep, one expects to wake up, and that exactly the hope that the Bible offers for the dead.
