Q. Your website states that “death is the ultimate healing”: Is this view grounded in scripture? For example, how do you account for 1 Cor 15:26? Perhaps this page could be expanded to explain the Christian’s grounds for hope?
A. Everything on this site is grounded in Scripture. For believers, death is the ultimate healing because it takes the believer out of this sin ridden world and deposits him in the next where there is no sin. What Paul said in 1 Cor. 15:26 applies to the 2nd death, not the first one, because that’s the one Jesus saved us from. Otherwise He’d be contradicting what he said in Phil. 1:21 “For me, to live is Christ and to die is to gain.”
