In which I talk about how death is the impetus for the central question of the universe, consider the ultimate cause, and question whether that first cause was based on intent.
Death, which is inevitable, drives us to consider whether our lives have any purpose or not. Further, it drives us to consider whether the universe has any purpose or not. So a theology of death calls us to align our views of death and the purpose of the universe. If it’s all random chance or intentional choice. And if we can choose, what is it that we choose: harm or healing, joy or pain?
What do you think is the purpose of the universe? What do you think happens after we die? And how does that affect how you live?
