Lord jesus, pitamah bhisma (mahapurush), our freedom fighters, army officers, many leaders in the history, many warrior in the past war, ........ - had death by tremendous suffering. NOW, the IMPORTANT thing is what GOD promised about good & bad karma - JUDGEMENT DAY is the most important - Death is not the result of KARMA - God promise that I'll send u heaven for good karma & I'll send u in hell for bad karma (u may reborn as an animal/insect/.......horrible human life, hole life is intolerable suffering & curse). 'if we live, we live for the God, and if we die, we die for the God' - who gave me birth? I? u? God gave, who will take my life? I? U? God will - so we'll return back to Him and then He will judge our KARMA - Neither I nor u but God will give him reward. See one counter example - look at politician & other criminals - are they get horrible death? Most of the times no - but that is not end, that is why I tell u about judgement day. "Just as it is appointed for man to die once and after that face to judgement (either to heaven or to hell). Death is appointed, and you are no exception. You only die once, and death is not the end; it is your destiny's door." - Hebrews 9:27 (Bible). U know that like us animals are child of God - then why do u eat mutton? Let me try to clear your confusion/dilemma - Death is not the result of KARMA, Death/Birth is pre-written destiny. Consider the example of Thakur Ramakrishna - u know that he died by throat cancer & he had to suffer a lot of pain. Now u tell me was he a bad man? was it the result of his good karma? Do u heard about child death? Children are innocent, how they die? Recently I've heard a story in my locality - a child of age 3 was riding on the scooty with her elder sister of age 12. The little child just crushed by a truck. Now u tell me what bad karma that little child has done? Was it her reward for bad karma?
