There are things about life that are certain and will never change. We are born then we die. The old must make way for the new, just as their old made way for them, they must make way for us.
It is sad for those left behind, because we cherish those memories and look forward to new ones, but in reality it's a more selfish view. One of two things can happen: a)an afterlife is nonexistent, in which case eventually contributes to new life anyway or b)an afterlife is there. In the one case, there is nothing but peace and in the other there is nothing but peace.
I understand I won't get a straight answer but I was just curious if people have experienced something that made them believe in heaven.
The reason why I was curious was a couple of weeks ago our preacher said he believed in Heaven not necessarily because of what the Bible says but because of what he witnessed with his mom passing.
