In the beginning

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

(Saint John, 1, 1-4)

And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.

( Book of Revelation 20, 14)

Death's grip can break our bodies, not our souls;
If death take him, I too know how to die.
Let Fate do with me what she will or can;
I am stronger than death and greater than my fate;
My love shall outlast the world, doom falls from me
Helpless against my immortality.

( Sri Aurobindo. Savitri Book VI: The Book of Fate Canto I)
