“My books are largely about death. They open with the death of Harry’s parents. There is Voldemort’s obsession with conquering death and his quest for immortality at any price, the goal of anyone with magic. I so understand why Voldemort wants to conquer death. We’re all frightened of it.” JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series in an interview with Tatler Magazine January 10, 2006.
As Seventh-day Adventists we are so blessed to understand what happens after death. We see how widespread misunderstandings about death will play a role in deceiving millions in the last days we are living in. See fascinating commentary in The Great Controversy chapters 31 (Agency of Evil Spirits), 34 (Can Our Dead Speak to Us?) and 39 (The Time of Trouble).
