"... it is appointed for men to die once..." (Hebrews 9:27). What do you think?

People die simply because God appointed men to die once as stated in the Bible verse. Had not God decided to let men die, science would not stop, as what is happening now, to find ways to lengthen the lifespan of men. But because God limited the lifespan of man to 120 years old, whatever men do, they will never succeed to give life beyond what God allowed.

Because we have to. Otherwise, the world cannot contain people. So grateful to God that He makes people die. How wonderful is His ways really. He knows everything. If He did not provide that people die, perhaps if I am the younger generation, I would be afraid of so very old people more than I am afraid of ghost.

Yes, people die because God said so. We can just imagine if God did not limit the age of people to 120 years old. How could a person still continue to live nowadays if he reaches the age of Methuselah? 969 years old? oh no! 69 years old is already old nowadays. With this hardship of life, I don't even like to reach 69 years of age. But we don't know when we are going to die for only God knows. I just hope that I would not live long enough to suffer from senility when I wouldn't know what I'm doing anymore. Anyway, that's all up to God and may God bless all of us.

It's the "Circle of Life" it's not complete until you die.
