Impendulo YeBhayibheli

Kuyafaneleka ukuba ukufa sikwesabe njengesitha futhi sithathe izinyathelo ezidingekayo ukuze sizivikele. (1 Korinte 15:26) Nokho ukwesaba ukufa okungenangqondo okubangelwa amanga noma izinkolelo-ze kufaka abantu “ngaphansi kobugqila konke ukuphila kwabo.” (Hebheru 2:15) Ukwazi iqiniso kuyokukhulula ekwesabeni ukufa ngendlela ekhwantabalisayo—ukwesaba okungakwenza ulahlekelwe injabulo ekuphileni.Johane 8:32.
