Death-bringing customs have crept into everything. This process starts with bad habits at the physical level, for example with the taste buds of people who eat and drink only what they like. It continues at the social level, where unreasonable demands are made on people so that they go to pieces before their natural time. It shows up in a mindset that makes people chase after external happiness and freedom. This mindset traps people by making them lust, body and soul, after the apparent necessities of a cultured life. Finally, this process ends with a confusing philosophy in which the more intellectual person winds up intoxicating himself in order to avoid feeling the realities of hardship. So we see that the traditions of death enter into everything and control our generation, whereas God should be the light of our lives.

We don’t have to die and go somewhere else to experience eternal life.
