My heartfelt sympathy to the family in the loss of your beloved family member. Some think that God is the cause of death. Please be assured that our loving heavenly father Jehovah did not create humans to die (Genesis 1:28). The Bible at Romans 5:12 states: That is why, just as through one man (Adam) sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sin. God promises a time when “he will actually swallow up death forever.” (Isaiah 25:8) To remove death, he must eliminate its root cause, which is sin. God will do this through Jesus Christ, who “takes away the sin of the world.”( John 1:29; 1 John 1:7) So as you mourn the loss of your loved one, remember that there is a bright future ahead when these promises will be fulfilled.
