Some criminals claim no fear of death, so they shoot others and get shot themselves. But the truth is Satan has thugs fooled because every ungodly person should be afraid to die. For after death all deeds will have to be answered to the Creator, and nothing will be forgotten or hidden (Ecclesiastes 12:14; Psalm 9:17; Revelation 20:12-15; Hebrews 9:27).
Imagine a guy getting killed while attempting a carjacking. That man’s final deed was robbery, so he will be doomed to the eternal fires of hell (Mark 9:43-48).
Death is no picnic! It is the final stamp on a person’s life, and there is no way to change afterward. So if one dies in his sins, he will not spend eternity with God (John 8:21). Thugs do not make a wise choice when they begin a life of crime. Instead they chose a life that will get them a first class ticket into the hottest fire imaginable, and they don’t have sense enough to realize it.
Yes, evildoers should be afraid to die because unrighteous souls won’t enter heaven (1 Cor 6:9-10; Galatians 5:19-21).
