When 162 people boarded the AirAsia flight to Singapore, it is doubtful any of them thought they had a short time to live. Debris and bodies have now been found in the Java Sea.
Often times when a death occurs, the living try to comfort each other by saying something like “They are in a better place “. But are they? The Bible says “it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgement”. Since judgement is next, what is the basis of judgment to ensure the “better place”? Many people believe it is good deeds and if there is an insufficient number there will be an opportunity to add whatever is necessary after death. The Bible says good deeds can save no one. The only acceptable payment for sin is the shed blood of the sinless One, Jesus. The payment for your sin is offered by His action. Do you accept it? If you do, you will never be the same. You, one day, will be in a “better place” and have eternal life.
