My friend today message me on Messenger about his son who is asking a very difficult question. She wants me to answer it for her because she is having a hard time thinking of a good reason to answer her son. The question is, Why God allows us to live only at the end we all gonna die? Me too, I am having a lot of thought about this. Because even me, I am afraid to die. I want to live a little longer. Any thoughts on this?

Because every one of has got a purpose with which we have been created and we need to fulfill it while we live. He creates every thing with a reason and a purpose! We need to identify our role and act accordingly like other animals, birds, plants and trees are doing! Thanks dear friend!

Because if we didn't die to make room for new people think how overcrowded the Earth would be.

@JustBhem Yep. None of us want to die (usually) but everything wears down with time, nothing is forever.

We are not to just live only, going through each day in a mindless way. We all have a purpose God has for us, and we are to fulfill that purpose with the best we can offer, both to the person we are doing it for and to God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. (KJV) Do you want to live a meaningful life, give it over to God and watch him give and fulfill a purpose in you.

Hmm... the question is why God allows us to live, only to die in the end. That is very difficult to answer. Because if I'm being very honest, I do not know how God thinks. As they say... mysterious ways. It is an impossible question to answer unless I can get a one-on-one interview with The Big Guy himself. :P Short of that, I am just a human. All I can do is hope I can figure out what to do while I'm here, and hope that either I am at least a help to others, or I am not that big of a burden to others.

That is why I have a second thought about answering this question because it is hard for me, I am also afraid to die. But looks like his son is full of doubt about God. And I thought his son is an Atheist.

@JustBhem Oh, is the son already grown up? I was thinking it was a small child who was asking the question. :P

Everything has a start and a end, old things fade (die) to leave place to new lives. This is how the world goes.

God do give us limit but at the same time there are ways to overcome it eventually. Think of it as a trial. If you succeed, you will live on, if not you will try again. Will we live forever? Yes and no.

God has important work for us to do on earth. Our work is helping others to know God, and when our work is done, we are called home to live with Him. God loves us, and at some point, he wants us to come home to live with Him. God really does miss us because He is our Father.

God has his purpose on letting us live. Our lives are only borrowed and we finished our mission here on earth then we have to go back to our maker

God gave us our lives and He created us in Hius image and likeness. Sickness doesn't come from God, There is no sickness in Heaven so it's not Him who gave your sickness. The enemy is here to steal, kill and destroy. but God came to give you life and life abundantly. He said if you ask. believe that you have it and it will be given to you. Your life is precious to God and therefore He will never take that away from you because you are precious in His eyes. Then it means it's your choice because you were given the free will to believe or not. Have faith in God and never think that He gave the sickness to you.
