The scriptures warn against putting our trust in religious images, religious idols or anything used in one’s form of worship to God.
PSALM 115:4-8 — “Their idols are silver and gold, the work of human hands. A mouth they have, but they cannot speak; eyes, but they cannot see; ears they have, but they cannot smell; hands they have, but they cannot feel; feet, but they cannot walk; they make no sound with their throat. The people who make them will become just like them, as well as those who trust in them.”
According to John 11:11-45 no. Death does not have the final say. 1st Corinthians 15:26 says “the last enemy death, is to be brought nothing.” In other words one day in mankind’s coming history death will be a thing of the past. Those chosen and deemed worthy by Jehovah God to gain everlasting life by means of a resurrection when the earth has been transformed into a beautiful, peaceful, pristine paradise earth, under God’s heavenly based Kingdom/Government, will never have to die again if they choose to support its universal laws for obedient mankind. What a wonderful Bible based hope this is. What a wonderful prospect and time to look forward to (Revelation 21:3-5).
Under God’s appointed Son and King, Jesus Christ, “the last enemy death” will be no more. Jesus, performed many resurrections on a small scale while living on earth (Luke 7:11-15, Luke 8:49-56). He will have the God given ability to resurrect countless millions of people back to life on earth, only this time Jesus will perform those resurrections on an earthwide scale, with the prospect of them never dying again. This time Jesus will perform the miracle of the resurrection from the heavens, from his God given heavenly throne.
Think of what that means! If we’re privileged to live during the time when Jesus is performing resurrections, we will be able to welcome back our dear loved ones from death with opens and tears of joy. They will never have to die again and they will be given the opportunity to serve God the way we were meant to serve Him, with “spirit and truth” and with our whole soul (life), body and mind.
Are there persons who were once in your life, that you loved and that you miss that are no more because of death? Would you like to see them again? Would you love to hug them and hold them in your warm embrace again? Rest assured you can believe the Bible when it says that “death will be no more” (Revelation 21:4-5).

Absolutely! This false teaching is very confusing, misleading, and a gross disrespect against the Creator of all things, Jehovah God (Revelation).
There are many scriptures in the Bible coupled with sound, logical reasoning that can clearly refute the Trinity Doctrine. It only takes a little common sense to see and recognize that this non-Biblical teaching makes no sense.
