“NO MAN CAN TELL WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO A PERSON WHEN HE DIES UNTIL HE HIMSELF EXPERIENCE DEATH. SO, WHO CAN TELL US THE TRUTH ABOUT DEATH?”
ITS TRUE THAT “no man knows what will happen to a person when he dies,” but the Bible is not the words of man, but the words of God. No man can tell what happen to a person when he dies because man’s knowledge is limited. However, God’s knowledge is not limited like man. He is omniscient or He knows everything:
“For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things.” (I John 3:20 NKJV)
Because God knows all things, He declared “the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things not yet done”:
“Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things that are not yet done, Saying, 'My counsel shall stand, And I will do all My pleasure,'” (Isaiah 46:10, NKJV)
The Lord God committed His words in writing through His servants like the Prophet Jeremiah:
“This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you.” (Jeremiah 30:2 NIV)
The words of the Lord God are written in the Holy Scriptures (which we call today as “the Bible”)
“And you remember that ever since you were a child, you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the truth, rebuking error, correcting faults, and giving instruction for right living, so that the person who serves God may be fully qualified and equipped to do every kind of good deed.” (II Timothy 3:15-17 TEV)
The Holy Scripture (the Bible) is inspired by God. Thus, it is true that no man can tell what will happen to a person when he dies, however, the Bible is the inspired words of the All-Knowing God. Hence, let us reject man-made teachings or notions (unbiblical concepts, unscriptural perspectives), and accept the Bible as the authority not only regarding what will happen to a person when he dies, but also regarding the worship of God, religion and salvation.
