Whats Good for the Goose is Good for the Gander

Stats that are mind boggling 

I learned that 1.6 Million people die a year in China. WHAT?
In America 2,596,993 Million people. WHAT?
It does not matter the cause of death all that matters is how many death occur every 12 (Twelve) months. In these two countries alone that are over 3 Million people a year! Dead not dying but dead…
Wow, I need to know how many more people are dying each year; this is crazy to me to know how much loss of human life there is acquiring all over the world. Let me take a look please hold!
Here I have found a live counting tool so you can actually watch the continual counts in real time this should make us wonder even but just a little.
Why did this odd thing just come across my mind, I was astounded at how large these numbers are and where do these people wind up. We know for a fact in a coffin, earn, or just buried. For me it goes way beyond the simplicity of the normal thinking it resides for me in the realm of the spiritual with regards to heaven or hell. 
The bible speaks to all who will believe in what it says in truth and others will not it that simple. So as I think about these sizeable numbers to the deaths, only God knows how many of them have had the opportunity to hear the good news and actually choose heaven over hell.  Yes, these are truths that I believe and they are my opinions on these matters.
I have never heard anyone tell their children that when family members pass away that they go to HELL ever. All I have ever heard is “there in a better place” or “they are in heaven” so whether you believe or not there is a truth that remains constant and NO one wants to except that there is a harsher reality than hell its self.
For me there is no clearer voice spoken than by John “Repent and be baptized” And there is a great truth to be shared; and that message is the very message about faith that we preach: If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
 But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”

Once again there are so many deaths in this world that it boggles the mind. Here is to hope!
