Darlene Adair, you can hide from the truth as long as you want, and kid yourself as much as you want believing there is someone saving your soul. All religions have been created by man, not woman, to control people, explain the unexplainable and alleviate the fear of death, nothing more, once we die we will be gone forever, just as we were before we were born.

We grow old and die because we inherited sin and death from our original parents Adam and Eve and only God can change that and promises to!!!! As for why we would want to live forever, ask yourself if you believe you will someday become nonexistent??????

Sounds like snake oil. But it turns out one of the charlatans selling snake oil over 100 years ago got in trouble for selling "snake oil" that did not actually contain that substance.

If you live to age 122, the person who offered the money will probably be dead, unless he was very young when he offered it and you were already old.
