Death can sound like a scary thing, but it really, it's as small as passing through a doorway to some Christians. For believers it's likely unneccessary because they accepted Jesus Christ as lord and savior, For unbelievers and believers alike, it's the penalty for our sins, it is not neccessary if you accept Jesus Christ as lord and savior. According to some Christians, it's the day when we finally learn what the truth is. Not one human who's an unbeliever will ever be excited. The moment they see God, and hear him say "I never knew you" more dreaded thoughts and sadness will go through their mind than this entire universe can create altogether. But for Christians, salvation will be pure awesomeness!
