Simply put, the Bible says that the dead are in the grave, awaiting the resurrection. (John 5:28, 29) They are not suffering or in any kind of pain, for "the dead know nothing at all." (Ecclesiastes 9:5) In his teachings, Jesus likened death to a deep sleep. (John 11:11-14) Thus, we have no need to fear those who have fallen asleep in death or to appease them by making offerings to them. They can neither help nor harm us, because "there is no work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the Grave." (Ecclesiastes 9:10) By means of the resurrection, however, God will do away with death forever.-1 Corinthians 15:26, 55; Revelation 21:4. For more information on this subject please visit jworg.
