Death Should Not Be Feared

We all experience the loss of loved ones. I’m right there with every one. I have experienced the loss of many beloved friends and family members. The loved ones of many die every day. This is normal to experience. These tragedies are upsetting, but there most often is nothing that can be done to avoid them. Death will simply happen; it is an unavoidable part of our Plan of Happiness. However, death is not the end! I know this to be true. After we die, we will see our friends and family again! Elder Russell M. Nelson from the Quorum of the twelve apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gave a wonderful talk called The Doors of Death. In this talk, he explains much about our lives after death. He says, “Life does not begin with birth, nor does it end with death”. This can give us hope and peace.

This is evidence that earth is not the first or last of our existence. Every one was a spirit child in heaven before we were born, and we chose to come down to earth. We chose to leave the presence of our loving Heavenly Father and lose the knowledge of our pre earth life so that we could have the opportunity to live and have a body. Here on earth, we are given free agency, the ability to make decisions for ourselves. Based off of the decisions we make, the services we preform on earth, and our desires, we will be judged by our merciful Father in Heaven. He also sent his son, our brother, Jesus Christ, to suffer for our sins. Christ made it possible for us to repent and be redeemed of our sins if we respectfully and obediently use His atonement. His atonement also won victory over the death of our physical bodies. We will be resurrected. Our bodies and our spirits will once again reunite (see “Resurrection” in the Bible Dictionary). Death is not something that we should be sad about because we will be resurrected, and our spirits will return to our bodies.

Elder Nelson says, “Irrespective of age, we mourn for those loved and lost. Mourning is one of the deepest expressions of pure love. It is a natural response…Moreover, we can’t fully    appreciate joyful reunions later without tearful separations now. The only way to take sorrow out of death is to take love out of life.” When Elder nelson says, “we can’t fully appreciate joyful reunions later”, by later one can infer that he means after we are resurrected and are reunited with our families. So we should mourn the losses, however not let it drive our decisions and actions because it will not be a permanent separation.  Death is a part life. Death is only a step through eternity, just like life is. Death should not be feared because of Christ’s atonement we will be resurrected and reunited with loved ones.
