    Many euphemisms replace a difficult/awkward/unpleasant idea with another term to smooth it over. “Asleep in Christ” is not like that. This euphemism actually represents a different world view. As apostle Paul said, “to die is gain.” IF, and only if, one is secure in a living relationship with the Lord.

    Asleep in Christ is actually a metaphor rather than a euphemism. It has deep meaning about the significance of death. Jesus, Paul, and Luke used this phrase.

    Pushing up daisies, bought the farm, kicked the bucket, passed away, dead as a doornail
