  • Not afraid of death but am afraid of dying. I am not sure anymore about Heaven. I believe in God, though. So perhaps Heaven is simply being with God.

  • I'm afraid of death because I know once I die, it'll be the end of my life here and quite honestly, I'm too young to die anytime soon dammit. My daughter is due in 17 days and I want to see her grow and thrive and I want to have more babies in the future.

    I'm not sure if there's life after death. I identify myself as agnostic. I can't say what'll happen until it happens =]

  • I am not afaid of death. If you sat around and thought about it, you'd never leave your house. I am afraid for safety, mine, my husband's, my daughers' and my grandchildrens'. As for heaven.. I guess I was raised to believe in heaven.

  • I am not afraid to die, but I don't want to die. B/C we were made to live 4ever as we read in Genesis. If Adam and Eve had not sinned they would still be here today. So it's a natural thing that we of course don't want to die. I do believe in heaven but I don't believe that I am going there. I believe that I will stay here on earth.

  • CONT...
    Psalm115:16-The heavens are the heavens of the LORD, But the earth He has given to the sons of men.Isa 45:18 - For thus says the LORD, who created the heavens He is the God who formed the earth and made it, He established it {and} did not create it a waste place,but formed it to be inhabited“Psalm 37:29The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.”

  • I am not 'afraid' of death, but I do feel regret at the thought of leaving my loved ones. I am still 'attached' to this life and that makes me reluctant to move on!

    I don't really believe in the survival of the soul so I dont' believe in Heaven in the Christian sense. I believe that we come from the energy of the universe and we return to the energy of the universe... so no eternal soul but no annihilation. It is all just change.

  • I believe there is life after this one. I believe in reincarnation.

    I fear death only because Id hate to leave my children while they are so young.
    I think it can be scary when you face your mortality whether you want to or not. The older you get the more it gets in your face(so to speak).
