Adam & Eve (2) - On Death Row (1) - Death by Natural Causes and Disease

Updated on December 5, 2018

Sometimes writers distance themselves from religious subjects. Religion is still taboo to speak about. Read about it instead.

Knowing that death is coming can be a motivating factor or a debilitating depression. Quite common with humanity, the thought of dying one day is not a terrible thing because most people think of it happening during old age, about 90 years old. Thanks to Adam and Eve, by that time the body is old, it is shriveled enough to where the fun of mortality is essentially in the past. If the long slumber comes, it is acceptable.

Many times cessation of life comes when people are at the peak of physical beauty and strength as with athletes and military services people. Dying tends to elicit feelings of tragedy and fear. Horror occurs in the minds when the loss is of a child who has not even approached maturity, like babies and toddlers and such. The younger a person is when the end comes, humanity questions life and blames God and the universe for allowing such a horror. In old age, humanity welcomes and blesses the eternal rest as peaceful.

All humanity has a death sentence that will occur in either old age or somewhere in the continuum between birth and maturity. Some will sit and fear its coming, some will not think of dying until it occurs to a close relation, others will welcome it and even try to rush it along. All will experience it.

Death came by Adam and Eve's decision to give life to humanity. It comes by natural cessation of the elements that make the biology of the body, disease, accident, and murder. Death's row is the focus of this article dividing death into major stops along the row of how it can occur.

  1. Natural Causes
  2. Diseases
  3. Accident
  4. Murder/War

Creation never stopped occurring in nature. The Fall of Adam and Eve made it a recycling system that creates life and ends life in an imperfectly but absolute cycle of life that is rightly attributed to Mother Nature.

Natural Causes

When the elements of the body no longer function in a manner that sustains the proper function of human growth due to the constituent parts of the body that leads to a total system shut down, it is called natural death. Nothing occurred outside of the body to stop the function of the body to sustain life, other than the parts wearing down and ceasing to function.

One of the curses of mortal life is that the elements obey God's command to function within a parameter of possibility for a specified amount of time. This applies to all life and creations. All things, because of the decision that Adam and Eve made in Eden's Garden, have expiration dates. From the rocks and soil to the Ozone layers, all things have expiration dates that occur when the course of existence has completed.

Also, a vivid and key part of mortal life is the recycling of life. As the old things cease to function, the elements go back into the earth to be used in the process of some other creation.

Creation never stopped occurring in nature. The Fall of Adam and Eve made it a recycling system that creates life and ends life in an imperfectly but absolute cycle of life that is rightly attributed to Mother Nature.

The human body will cease to function with no outside stimuli necessary to make it occur. The decree God gave to Adam and Eve in the Eden's Garden specified, no matter the steps by determined researchers to prolong life, it will end.

Natural causes of life lost are the result of the heart giving out, lungs collapsing, and any other vital system failure in the body. Modern science can replace some organs and artificially extend body functions, but it cannot create immortality in the flawed flesh of humankind.

Again, the flaw in humanity is not the existence of humanity, but the need for imperfect things to cease in an otherwise perfect universe so that human perfection can arise. Sin is imperfection carrying with it the reward of fatality or separation. The universe naturally attempts to remove imperfection. God created nothing imperfect. Since mankind created imperfection, the elements of the universe seek to remove that blemish and anything associated with it.

Mankind is also divine, and therefore can never cease to exist, Because of the plan God put in place, the cycle of creation will end physical life naturally but reconstitute it naturally to a level of perfection that is appropriate for the ability of that life. Perfection as in competition is the appropriate definition when it applies to the human condition.

The people around the person with this type of sickness can only pray, stand there and be as helpful as they can but in the end this battle is won by will and by the endurance of the human body to take pain. The object of this illustration is to show precisely that.

Mortal bodies are subject to genetic abnormality and invasion by processes such as viruses and bacteria that would not exist in the human body immortal. Since all biological things on this sphere are subject to mortality, all elements have the potential to cause a mortal death.

Death by Disease

Foreign elements invade the human body at times to weaken and destroy it if possible. Diseases are those foreign elements and are one of many tools the universe uses to remove imperfection. Suggesting such is not an attempt to indicate that human beings who contract diseases or disorders suffer the divine wrath of heaven due to some egregious act since all humans from infants to the ancient contract and die from diseases. No. As mentioned previously, the universe wants to remove things that are imperfect since it is a perfect creation. God set the bounds, the limits of the universe so that humanity can exist in it for a time to overcome the imperfections inherent to all humanity and attain a glory as a joint-heir in the kingdom of God with Jesus Christ.

Disease exists because it is the result of Adam and Eve's act to bring mortal life into existence. The elements that cause disease will exist as they are created no matter the condition of humankind; however, those diseases are only relevant in mortal life and not after the resurrection, immortal beings. With mortal life comes the possibility that things do not function properly in the birthing process or the environment after birth that leads to analogous biological interactions that would not occur if the body was immortal--analogous in the sense the life can exist with deformities and disease that are not genetically encoded.

Mortal bodies are subject to genetic abnormality and invasion by processes such as viruses and bacteria that would not exist in the human body immortal. Since all biological things on this sphere are subject to mortality, all elements have the potential to cause a mortal death. Mortal bodies depend on the biosphere that surrounds this planet to survive. Other life forms in this biosphere exist with the potential to harm humans. Since humanity disobeyed God's command to avoid partaking of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, all the life that God entrusted to Adam and Eve on the planet to subdue has the potential to disobey humanity.

God inspired men with knowledge to combat the effects of diseases with science. As the offspring of deity, the human capacity to learn and obtain knowledge is only limited by the imagination of those who seek after that knowledge.

To make the points independently stand out:

  • Disease existed always, but not as a tool to hurt humanity, but as a creation to help perpetuate the biosphere in which all life exists on Earth.
  • Disease harms humanity only as mortal beings, and will not have the ability to do so after the resurrection.
  • Disease is not the wrath of God on those who suffer, but a condition of mortality due to Adam and Eves disobedience.

When You're Gone

Sum

Natural causes of passing away, which can include disease are more acceptable to the human condition. It is not customary for humanity to desire the losing a loved one in this manner or any manner! Accepting someone dying is easier when the end comes in such a manner--something that could not be prevented. Indicated in Adam & Eve (2) - On Death Row (2) - Accidental Death and Murder, are not so easy to accept. These are the conditions created by the first people. Conditions that have a purpose for good, but are unpleasant to experience.
