My best guess is that it's probably just nothing (I'm not religious in any kind of way), but I'll be the first to admit I don't know, and how could I, anyway?...I'm not counting on Google to "solve death" in my lifetime.”
Well, the good news is that Google doesn't have to: it's already been done. But not by any so-called “Soul Passage Midwife” or other such charlatan. Instead, we have the word of the holiest, most enlightened man who ever lived - the Son of God himself - Jesus Christ. If you would like to have your fear of death removed, the following passages show the way:
Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one can come to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
“Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.” – John 3:36
Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – John 8:31
“Very truly I [Jesus] tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” – John 5:24
“But if our Gospel be hid, it is hid to those who are lost, whose unbelieving minds the god of this world hath blinded, lest the light of the glorious Gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” – 2 Corinthians 4:3-5
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” – Ephesians 2: 8-9
“In the beginning was the Word [Jesus], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind...The Word became flesh and lived among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth...No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God ” – John 1 (selections)
And don't listen to false teachers such as “Soul Passage Midwives” and other New Age deceivers. About such liars the Bible warns us:
“For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.” --2 Timothy 4:3
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” – 1 Corinthians 1:18
“For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God...and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.” – Jude 1:4
Seems rather expensive for a tasting. Often they're free.
It is REALLY time to legalize marijuana and get the government out of our lives!
Yes, the rich are responsible for creating and sustaining many jobs in America. Instead of simply putting their money in savings accounts, they start corporations (which employ middle-class people) and invest in others, so that those companies can improve and expand. Many are venture capitalists who provide the money necessary for poorer people to start businesses. These "rich" people greatly benefit the poor and middle class by providing jobs for them.
The democrats hatred of the rich is just plain sick, especially given the fact that the leaders of the Democrat party are very rich themselves. That fact escapes the poor people who support them.
