Today’s CNN has a piece about Friedel and Robert Borisewitz, aged 92 and 97.
Friedel admits she sometimes thinks about death: “I just wonder how it will happen. It’s like being pregnant with your first child — you wonder how it’s going to happen.
“The difference is that when you are pregnant for the first time, people give you advice and tell you how it’s going to be.”
Makes you think, doesn’t it? There isn’t really much advise going around about dying. This makes the Bible all the more valuable because it claims to be the only source of any possible knowledge about life beyond the grave. When it stands up for itself so wonderfully in provable matters, is it not wise to look into what it says about matters such as . . . death?
