it judges the thoughts and
attitudes of the heart.

God Of All Comfort    2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)

Praise be to the God and Father

About Those Who Sleep     1 Thessalonians 4:13-14  (NIV)

Brothers and sisters,
we do not want you
to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, 
so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind,
who have no hope.

For we believe that Jesus died
and rose again, and so
we believe that God will bring with Jesus
those who have fallen asleep in him.
