Answer by Me
Who is truly owner of a piece of land? In my country, I cannot own land, but I can only buy land use rights that might be taken back for greater use. I am happy with this law, because I only journey through here for a short time. For my descendants, they may settle on places beyond the earth planet. If God gave me ownership to the core of the earth, I would not know what to do in that darksome depth. Moreover, God tells me in the Holy Books that I should not covet that lowest possession as tomb for my body.
I am thankful to God for the promise of everlasting mansions for all His children in Heaven. Hope that more people will appreciate His Divine Gift and cease the struggles for a cemetary.
Man’s life depends more on the bread from Heaven.

However great the conqueror, however many countries he may reduce to slavery, he is unable to retain any part of these devastated lands but one tiny portion — his tomb! If more land is required for the improvement of the condition of the people, for the spread of civilization (for the substitution of just laws for brutal customs) — surely it would be possible to acquire peaceably the necessary extension of territory.
