Every town Paul has gone to since his conversion he has had his life threatened. He was stoned and left for dead outside Lystra (Acts 14:19). By the end of his 3rd journey the town of Ephesus had rose up against him and he was encouraged
The bible said that the wages of sin is death. Physical death is the absence of consciousness and sentience notably on the mortal, but spiritual death has more far reaching implications. On this side of the spectrum, the atheist and other non-Christ believers’ fear of death is limited to the expiration of the mortal body.
