Why Do People Die?

For sometime i'v wondered the reason why people die

somebody in perfect health would just drop dead one day

and there's nothing to explain why

so itz kind of strange.

To every thing

there is a season,

and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die;

a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal;

a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;

a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose;

a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew;

a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate;

a time of war, and a time of peace.

Why did adam and eve have to eat the fruit off of that cursed tree.

if they had obeyed the lord, My uncle, my best friend would still be with me.

Instead he was takin from me by heartattack.

Which had left a severe pain in my heart since October 16, 2009

I spend every day wondering why he had to be taken from me.

Tears still fall from my eyes, slowly down my cheeks, warm, onto my chest, wishing i didnt have to see him layed to rest

i cry myself to sleep, i wake up crying, i cry at school,in the halls and in the bathroom,

He was my best friend,the man i could tell every thing to,

Now i have no one

Nobody but the walls that surround me,

I am 13 years old and from America,

And that day i about died, seeing him in a casket, knowing that i will never see his loving,caring,truthful face again, if i had one single wish to be granted then it would have been to have died with him,

I miss You Uncle Robert

With all my love,

Heather

I will never foeget you no matter waht happens, even in my afterlife, i will have known about you,

death is a proof that we all have sinned - sin leads to death.

two deaths - one of body, the other of soul. adam lost both. Jesus redeemed both (ref. revelation 20).

well, death is an inevitable fact of life, even the bible said it that ''it is appointed unto man to die, and after death comes judgement''.

let us not worry about it,let us feel content that we don't need god, becuase god fails to meet the ambitions of mankind. We will prevail, and have absolute respect. We treat each other better than any god ever could. God is BS. God played out when man was born.

Maybe we should just begin to understand the universe a little more, before we fear the prospect of life/death. either way you'll always be a part of the universe, your matter will always exist but in varied forms for eons of time, until eventually the universe ends; if it does? So don't play your own and other's existances down with negativity. You may feel like average jack or jane? but just remember that you need a whole universe to survive. And that your existance is extraordinary one. to play once in a game so grand; feel happy and content that average jack or jane where not so average because they saw the universe through their own eye's., and we are those people. 1979-2009 and counting

it all boils down to two ppl, Adam and Eve. Gods original purpose for man was not for us to die. Satan ws jealous nd decided to fustrate this wonderful plan of everlastin life. I guess we al kno the rest of the story

that is how life is. born 2 die , die 2 b born into other world of realities.it is called d CYCLE OF LIFE[/color][color=#990000][/color]Death is a natural happening to all forms of life. It is both the beginning and the end of the Circle Of Life. Do not fear it.

Death is a part of the Circle of Life. We do not exist, we are created by the union of a man and a woman, we live out the seasons of our lives. We complete the circle. It is both the beginning and the end of us all as human beings, whether we are good or bad, whether the life we live is good or bad. [color=#990000]'All Life moves in concentric circles, some much faster than others, some much slower. Some complete their circle in pain and illness, and some complete their circle in health. Some complete a very difficult circle by their own hand, by their own choices and the consequences they must face. Some complete a very easy circle by the choices of those before them and the luck of good health."

In the end, Death will equalize them all, and there should be no fear as we accept that we all must die, and return to the beginning of the Circle.

check my post on the philosophy of death.

In what way do you mean 'why do we die?'

The earth was intended to be an awesome place to live, created for us out of love by Jesus.

We weren't supposed to die, or have pain, and frankly I think it would be cool to have a pet cobra, but whatever.

Sin was introduced because we were loved enough to be given free will: ie, not be forced to do what we were told

but instead decide for ourselves. Sin was introduced, and with sin comes death.

We now die because we get old, we age, our body stops functioning correctly, we get hit by a bus like on Lost,

With technological advances, we are living longer. We now die around 80 instead of 40. Yes we live longer.

But we die because eventually our bodies wear down and stop working. Our bodies do this because sin was introduced.

It doesn't matter that you'll die. It matters where you'll go when that happens. Eternity is a long, long time.

Extrapolating from douzy. sin is not what makes people die

Therefore in order to die, you have to live.

conclusion: people die because they lived

I think we that are alive may not know or cannot even explain why we die, but i believe when we all die we will all get to understand why we die.

Death is necessary to keep the natural balance. Just imagine if we could live forever. There would be no space for everybody

I'm not a religious person, so i'm not going to answer like alot of the people so far have. but i beleive people die to make life important. idk if this needs an explanation, fairly simple answer. if people didnt die, there would really be no point to live life to the fullest. since there is a limit on the amount of time we have, we do the things we want to while we still can. i try to live that way, anyway.

why do people die?

well, from my observation thats the goal of life, "now keep in mind, I did not say 'meaning' of life, but the goal of life" all life dies whther its your pet kitty or the flower in your garden. Its natural. The good news is this, Do you remember what it was like coming out of your mothers V. canal? No, you probably dont. Do you remember the doctor smacking you on the back-manually motivating your respiratory and lung system to begin breathing and transfering blood throughout your body on your own? No, you probably do not, So, when it comes time for you to leave you probably will not know what hits you, whther you are instantaneously encinerated by a road side bomb or just collapse while walking down the street. its alright though, its natural, its like eating food than taking a dump. its beautiful, its the cycle thats the real beauty and it is your inevitable sacrafice to make way for the next generation. no worries sisters and brothers,,,,we are selfish and are fearful of death but it really dosn't matter. do your best while you are alive, have fun, and try not to hurt anyone. if you do, repent and be thankful. thats all that is asked. And keep what we have going in its constant state of cycle.

if you want to read a good book read Dr. Sam Parnias "what happens when we die" its interesting. I am not sure how true it is but there is probably some viable information in it.

take care brothers and sisters and take comfort. You were born but you dont remember, so it is plausible that you will die and have no recollection either.

People die so that they can give account of their stewardship and receive a just recompence of their works done in the flesh here on earth...(Physical) death is not a punishment as may be thought by some, it is infact a good thing if it meets you at the right place at the right time, doing the right thing...then you move on to eternal life, however (spiritual) death, which is the true death is the punishment.....it means eternal anguish and separation from God[i].....that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life[/i]

No need to look for a reason when there is none.

There is no purpose to life or death except what you make of it.

The story of original sin is just a way to make sense out of something senseless. Our minds look for purpose and a lot of people cannot accept the ultimate futility of it all, that's why they want to place everything within a greater plan.

"death is a fact of life." we die becuz we r all humans and descendants of Adam and eve!!!! People die bcuz adam n eve sinned and ate d forbidden fruit and God cursed them. "And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Genesis 2:16-17).

it's the consequence of Adam diobeying God!!"In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return" (Genesis 3:19).

He is appointed to die because he has transgressed the Law of God, and the Lord’s justice in the sentence of death is so undeniable that every mouth is stopped and all the world is guilty before Him. Man can offer no legitimate reason why the death sentence should not have been passed, for:

The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).

The soul that sinneth, it shall die (Ezekiel 18:4).

Sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death (James 1:15).

By one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin (Romans 5:12).

So then death worketh in us (2 Corinthians 4:12).

For all have sinned (Romans 3:23).

Every time that death strikes and a loved one is suddenly taken away, it is as if we hear the cachinnation of sin and Satan. Sin plays with man for a time just as a cat plays with a mouse. Sin will allow us to run here and there, to pursue happiness, worldly pleasure and power; but the game of life is brief. In the end sin has tracked down each of us, and each pays with his life. Inasmuch as “all have sinned” (Romans 3:23), we search in vain in our efforts to discover the secret of victory over death, for “What man is he that liveth, and shall not see death?” (Psalm 89:48).

Death is still in our midst holding the whole world in fear and subjection. The reason men shrink from it is because “the sting of death is sin” (1 Corinthians 15:56). Because our nature is sinful and our hearts wicked, death continues to prick us and drive us toward the grave as the goad drives an ox to slaughter.
