Death is just like a dreamless sleep. While you are in the act of sleeping or if you are now dead, your perception of everything around you changes. You can no longer hear, see, or feel your surroundings. This results in great happiness and relaxation. Second Argument: P6: Death is the relocation of a person’s soul from here to another place.
In this paper I will show how the belief in the resurrection of the body was present in the Early Church, and that the Church Fathers conceived of the resurrected body as being healed of all its disabilities yet bearing some continuity with the self. (In this paper I will show the Church Fathers, based upon their understanding of Greco-Roman culture and philosophy along with their reading of Scripture, understood the resurrection of the dead to involve the healing/cleansing of all bodily disability.) The Christian Creed finds its fulfillment in the proclamation of the resurrection of the dead to life everlasting. Just as Christ is risen from the dead, we believe that we too will be raised to new life in Christ by the work of the Most Holy Trinity. St. Paul, in 1 Corinthians 15, asks, "What kind of body will [the faithful] come back [with]?"
After questioning one gets to the point that the reason for existence of mankind is passing immortality and eternal life. The atonement of Jesus Christ is the wonderful support in life. As said by Detroit Interfaith Council in Sin and Atonement, Repentance and Redemption in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, “Because this plan allows for our imperfections, sins, and mistakes, there is also a need for an atonement and for an Atoner andRedeemer. “. In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus Christ suffered harsh death, atoning for the people’s sins.
Death seems more welcoming, inviting the reader to see things his/her way. “Come with me and I’ll tell you a story. I’ll show you something” (544). This line makes death seem to be also compassionate, always wanting to tell a story to the readers about amazing people he/she has observed throughout life. Since death is a mirror of mankind through the human traits he shows, it makes readers able to see the human race as a whole through Death’s stories which help the reader understand the paradoxical message.
Therefore when Death’s own metaphorical time comes he must bring himself to death. On page 543, Death says, “And remain.” Death will be all that remains, and so he must come for himself metaphorically at the end of things. “I am haunted by humans,” are Death’s ending words on page 550. Death meets humans. He becomes attached to them, and then one day he must collect their soul when they die.
Socrates thinks of possible ways that death is not to be feared because it is either death is to be the loss of consciousness like a deep sleep, or something happens to the soul upon death and it is changed or it is a journey to another place. If death is to be nonexistent, he considers it is like a deep sleep without dreaming, and then death seems to be gains. Socrates prefers not having dreams and thinks it seems like only a night. This is how Socrates considers the first possibility of death as being good. Socrates now goes on to the second possible way.
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isaiah 59:1-2). To die in your sins when Christ has borne them, is what sends people to hell. “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24). What about hell? Is it real?
Jesus refers to heaven being a place of Paradise and he refers to hell being “…a blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” (Matthew 13:50). Although physical human bodies die, human souls never die. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that every spiritual soul "is immortal: It does not perish when it separates from the body at death, and it will be reunited with the body at the final Resurrection". (Catechism of the Catholic Church, Part One: The Profession of Faith, Section 2: The Profession of the Christian Faith, Chapter One: I Believe in God The Father, Article I, Para 6. Man at

"Our friend Lazarus sleepeth" John 11:11. Christ called Lazarus forth from his tomb where he had been dead for four days. When Lazarus stepped forth from his tomb, he did not say that he had been to heaven. Lazarus had been sleeping in the dust of the earth since the breath of life had left him. Ecclesiastes 9:5.
