Religion afflicts the comforted and comforts the afflicted. Are you comforted by your religion?  Be specific about your religion and how it comforts the afflicted during the death or dying process.

    People often claim that religion provides comfort. I personally would see religions as dogmas, beliefs, god(s) and Paranormal activities with the exclusion of spirituality. I don’t believe in religion, but I’ll admit that there is comfort in knowing that there is a God who truly comforts. Jesus Christ can comfort the afflict person during the death or dying. He has the best interest in consoling the heart of the person who needs an emotional and physical cure. We are able to pray and trust in God.

    I believe its God who comforts not the religion. The teachings of the scriptures which are God -breathed offers that comfort through faint in Him. I am a Christian and the scriptures makes promises to us who believe. I have experienced the comforting hand of God on numerous occassions and have also been comforted by individuals within my faith. If that person died “in Christ” there is the hope of heaven and the idea of a “better place”. Although untimely deaths may occur my God is always there to offer me some level of comfort.

  • He is The God of All Comfort

    2 Corinthians 1:3-5, states “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ.…

    Certainly, it is God who comforts but He has also instructed us to comfort ye one another as well as depicted in the various scriptures:

    Isaiah 40:1
    Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.

    Isaiah 51:12
    “I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mere mortals, human beings who are but grass,

    Isaiah 66:13
    As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”

    2 Corinthians 7:4
    I have spoken to you with great frankness; I take great pride in you. I am greatly encouraged; in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds.

    2 Corinthians 7:6
    But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus,

    2 Corinthians 7:7
    and not only by his coming but also by the comfort you had given him. He told us about your longing for me, your deep sorrow, your ardent concern for me, so that my joy was greater than ever.

    May the sweet communion of the Holy Spirit bring sweet release and provide the comfort that we need.
