صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: مدافن، لوحات قبور، قبر، الموت - رسم أمجد وديع.

An atheist met a believer who was preaching the Gospel and had the following encounter with him:

I dont believe a word of what you are saying.

Dont tell me why you arent a believer, rather tell me in what do you believe.

I personally believe that death is the end of every thing.

I believe the same thing.

Do you believe that death is the end of every thing?

Sure, death will end every chance for you to resist God; it will end your fun, friendship and ambition, because you leave this world to go to eternal darkness. Death will terminate every thing for me too. It will terminate my troubles, my tears and my struggle; I will be with my Lord in His glory.

I never thought that way before.

So death finishes every thing, for sinners the result will be eternal darkness; but for the holy children of God, Jesus Christ will be their everlasting reward.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: الموت يُنهي كل شيء!
