• My thoughts' He doesn't know what the Bible says. It doesn't make sense to a reasonable person. The Bible says at Ecclesiastes 9:11..."I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. KJV. So basically things happen that are out of our control Sickness, Accident's, Death. 1 Peter 5:7 says talking about God "while you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you". NWT. Also the Rotherham Bible says at 1 John 4:8 "He that doth not love Doth not understand God, Because God is love. KJV says "for God is love"... the NWT says "because God is love" ASV says "for God is love." So how loving is a God that kills anyone just because he wants that person close to himself? I would call it selfish, not loving. BUT! the GOD of the Bible is not that way. Why do I say this? at Rev. 21:4 says "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away" KJV Here God promises that He will stop Death of any kind and the reason for any sadness. Byington says Revelation 21:4 "and will wipe away every tear out of their eyes, and death will no longer exist, nor will mourning nor outcry nor pain any longer exist, because former things are gone”; imagen no more Death because it doesn't exist! and why? Because at 1 Corinthians 15:26."The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death" KJV... And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing NWT...The last enemy that shall be abolished is death. ASV As a last enemy death is to be destroyed; Rotherham Bible. So what happens then? Think about if you don't die how long will you live? and where? the Bible says at Psalm 37:29...(The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. KJV) (And they will live forever on it. NWT) (And dwell therein for ever. ASV) So we'll live forever; But where? at Isaiah 45:18..."For thus saith Jehovah that created the heavens, the God that formed the earth and made it, that established it and created it not a waste, that formed it to be inhabited: I am Jehovah; and there is none else. ASV. Psalm 37:11 But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. NWT But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace .KJV. so I hope this helps, if you would like more information about what God" plans for the future of Mankind, please follow this link.
  • A classic form of a "pat excuse" attempting to answer the question, "Why did so-and-so have to die?" It's not meant to have the meaning, "God needed so-and-so's help." Rather, it's meant to have the meaning, "God decided that so-and-so has earned his final reward of eternal paradise." A more...astute Christian will not accept such a pat excuse (because the more astute Christian will not know if so-and-so is in Heaven - or somewhere else! - and will realize that the speaker doesn't know what God's intentions were in allowing so-and-so to die at that moment.)
  • It's a misnomer. Saying that sort of thing is meant for one thing only - to comfort the living. But it isn't actually the way it works - it doesn't come close. First, let's address the issue of "if He loves you, why would He kill you?". ((( HE ))) doesn't "kill" you. Disease is not ((( HIS ))) fault. Being stupid and dying in a traffic accident is not ((( HIS ))) fault. When things don't go the way people believe they should, it's easy to blame it all on God. You were not made immortal - don't blame an early demise on Him. Second, let's address the "going to Heaven" concept. I'd like for anyone to give me a verse in the Bible that says man will go to Heaven when he dies. It doesn't exist. God destroyed the earth once with a great flood. He was sorry that he did and so he placed a rainbow in the sky as a covenant to man that he would never do so again. John 3:13 says "And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven." Adam and Eve are not in Heaven, Moses is not in Heaven, Noah is not in Heaven, and neither is Jesus's parents or anyone else - Heaven is God's home where He and the angels reside. The next time God destroys the earth it will be by fire. He will then rebuild the earth and this is where man will spend the rest of eternity. In the meantime, when we die, we'll just be "nowhere". People fear death because they fear the unknown. The fact is, when you're dead, you don't know it. And the time that passes before this earth is destroyed and rebuilt may be thousands or even millions of years - but it makes no difference. Time is relevant only to those who can measure it. The time between when a person goes to sleep and then wakes up again may be hours. But to the person who sleeps, it takes place instantly, like turning on a light switch - because he is unaware of the amount of time that has passed. The same goes for the time that passes between when you die and are resurrected. You have no concept of time - to you, it will be instantaneous.
