Warren Buffett, the financial investment genius and one of the richest men in the world, has his doubts about life beyond the grave, and it worries him.
Buffett admits, “There is one thing I am scared of. I am afraid to die.” His biographer Roger Lowenstein, writes: “Warren’s exploits were always based on numbers, which he trusted above all else.
“In contrast, he did not subscribe to his family’s religion. Even at a young age, he was too mathematical, and too logical, to make the leap of faith. He adopted his father’s ethical underpinnings, but not his belief in an unseen divinity.”
And thus Warren Buffet, one of the most successful men in the world, is stricken with one terrifying fear — the fear of dying.
On a lighter note, Buffett once said, “What I want people to say when they pass my casket is, “’Boy, was he old!’”
Buffett is not alone in his doubt and his fear. The majority of people in this country and even in the world believe in God and believe in life after the grave. Yet there has always been a minority of people who find this too great a leap of faith to take. And the natural response to such doubt is fear.

Jesus says to us: “Be not afraid….. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places…”
On a lighter note, what do YOU want people to say when they pass by YOUR casket?
