“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Yes, we could be also frogs, so its maybe not so good if we do not appreciate the generosity of our ancestors. Or as Ajahn Fuang once said: "How can I blame anyone else? Nobody ever hired me to be born. I came of my own free will."

But there is also a good saying of him if the opposit arises:

§ Once, when one of Ajaan Fuang's students was being pressured by her parents to look for a husband so that she could settle down and have children, she asked him, "Is it true what they say, that a woman gains a lot of merit in having a child, in that she gives someone else the chance to be born?"

"If that were true," he answered her, "then dogs would get gobs of merit, because they give birth to whole litters at a time."
Just that! *smile*

Can you explain your fear more in detail?

Neither Buddha nor the teachings which are called Christian denying life, of course they do not force it like Hindus do (remember the Linga quote). But people of all religions are actually attached to becoming as long as they do not attain the first path fruit. A worldling is always somebody who likes to become or like to disappear. Aversion and desire is a pair, it just changes its poloricy like alternating current and is therfore a very powerful force and not easy to catch.

Here we are, neither in the future nor in the past and to see that would be dethlessness, or one could call it awaken or real alive.
Just that! *smile*
