but death leads to both the uplifting and downfall of us all.

I heard this quote recently, and it really struck me. What do you all think about it? It seems rather open to interpretation.

I don't know what the original speaker's intent was, but I do see how in heaven we would meet a downfall in the sense of being humbled before God while be uplifted from our sinful humanity.

Wow, that's intense! For the Christian I suppose the uplifting could refer to the resurrection of our bodies, unto heaven and the downfall the judgement, the humbling before God? Basically what Jennifer said. ;)

maybe it is talking about heaven and hell- the uplifting and downfall.

In life there is hope for change.

In death there is no hope of change.

In life there is opportunity, in death fixation.

It all depends on what the author of the qoute meant. If he was a Christian, then we would understand what he meant.
but if he wasn't, however, then it could mean a number of things....
