Death is Separation from God

St. Gregory Palamas on how death is being yoked to sin.
Our society has a truly dominating fear of death. And death is something terrible—at Pascha we celebrate that Christ has trampled down death.
But St. Gregory Palamas reminds us that we can suffer something far more terrible than physical death:
Death, properly speaking, is this: for the soul to be unharnessed from divine grace and to be yoked to sin…Let us cast away, let us reject all things, bid farewell to all things: to all relationships, actions and intentions that drag us downward, separate us from God and produce such a death.
