Death may be the most misunderstood subject in the world today. To many it is enshrouded in mystery and evokes feelings of fear, uncertainty, and even hopelessness. Others believe their loved ones who have died are not dead at all, but instead live in other places under varied conditions. Most world religions teach that the dead become spirits. Does it really matter? Yes, immeasurably so. The reason is that people who misunderstand the subject of death will almost assuredly be deceived by Satan on other issues. There is no room for guessing on this topic. This Study Guide will reveal what God says on this subject, since what He says is all that matters.
