    Ecc 3:20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
    Ecc 3:21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?

    Children sometimes ask what happens to pets when they die. I assume they just go back to the ground and that's it. Is that a pretty safe assumption?

    I think that all we can presume from what Scripture tells us. Some have speculated that our pets will be resurrected with the new creation, but that seems to me wishful thinking. It may be true, but we will never know for sure until we're there.

    The OPC has an excellent tract out on this Link.

    This is one where I say I dont know for sure-I can only hope so.

    Animals are the oft neglected part of society even among christians. They are not made in the image of God but they are made by the Lord Jesus Christ none the less.

    God gives such wonderful gifts to us that provide life saving skills and comfort during times of pain.

    God Bless our Pets!!

    In Christ,

    What about lizards and cattle? Are we taking tigers or even ligers?

    If this is a joke Andrew I honestly do not appreciate it.

    A pet liger would be cool!
