Buddha and Arahants are called "debtless" ones. Suffering is caused by being in debt due to engaging in sense pleasures.

Only Buddha teaches us how to get out of death, no other religion teaches this critical teaching!

Indulgence in sensual pleasures, including heavenly pleasures, leads to debt:

"Thus, monks, poverty is suffering in the world for one who partakes of sensuality.
Getting into debt is suffering in the world for one who partakes of sensuality.
Interest payment is suffering in the world for one who partakes of sensuality.
Being served notice is suffering in the world for one who partakes of sensuality.
Being hounded is suffering in the world for one who partakes of sensuality.
Bondage is suffering in the world for one who partakes of sensuality.

"In the same way, monks, whoever has no conviction with regard to skillful mental qualities, no sense of conscience with regard to skillful mental qualities, no sense of concern with regard to skillful mental qualities, no persistence with regard to skillful mental qualities, no discernment with regard to skillful mental qualities is, in the discipline of a noble one, said to be poor, destitute, & penniless.

"He — poor, destitute, & penniless, having no conviction with regard to skillful mental qualities, no sense of conscience... no sense of concern... no persistence... no discernment with regard to skillful mental qualities — engages in misconduct by way of the body, misconduct by way of speech, misconduct by way of the mind. For him, I tell you, this is getting into debt.
