(Thread title : Why does God keep waiting to come get us?)
If the Lord had not waited, my cousin woudn't have died in a single car accident in August 2001...
She was on her way home after giving a concert at a church. She had just finished her first Gospel album at our cousins husband's studio in Lyndale Tx.
What the news account does not mention is that the witnesses (the full account is in the police record) saw another person in the car with Wendy just as she rounded a curve in the road. The car went over the shoulder and came back and rolled. The witnesses saw my cousin in the drivers seat, seatbelt on, with a gash on her head, and they asscertained that she was dead. The witnesses then tried to find the other occupant of the car, searching the nearby area. When the police arrived, they told the officers that the "other" person must be under the vehicle, since they couldn't find this person in the nearby ditch. The vehicle was rolled over and there was no one under the vehicle.
Our familly knows that she was taken to be with the Lord by the Angel in the car with her before the crash. This has been a great comfort to all in my family and has been a source of strenght and a reminder that God will not forsake those who belong to Him.
If the Lord had not waited, my mother wouldn't have died from Leukeima and an apparent mistake on the part of her Oncologist in 2004. I was with her when she died. Just before she passed, she came out of her apparent coma, looked at one corner of the hosptal room and said, "Lord, Lord . . . " and then died. The curtains around the room started to move and then were still - like a Hand stopped them from moving within about 5 seconds.
If the Lord had come before these things, our family wouldn't be what they are today, more grounded in the promises of the Lord, more "heavenly minded" and not so wrapped up in "this world" and what this world has to offer.
I say all this to say one thing . . . if the reason the Lord tarries is to bring every last person in as possible, I am willing to see any death of my family (those who know the salvation of our Jesus The Christ) and to face my own death . . . if it means others will be there with us at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

And you WORSHIP this being?

Um. Good for you, I guess?

You know, if your god was so powerful he could have stopped the car crashing and healed your mum's cancer.
Also, you keep saying "If the Lord had not waited to come..." Umm... If your god had not waited to come, then you would all be with him now, and you wouldn't have had to go thru the grief of losing your mother to a long and painful illness. Your god is an arsehole. Or worse.

"Marriage Supper of the Lamb"?!
I'm sorry, I shouldn't laugh since these people actually believe this stuff, but it is getting truly weird in RR. I think someone needs to send in a team of psychologists.

These people depress me, they really do!

Marriage Supper of the Lamb?
That's a new one on me.

The Mad Hatter was the poster-boy for good mental health compared to these people.

Stop wishing death upon your family members.

Its the problem with miracles. Just because its a bad outcome does not make it less miraculous...

Hate to bust your bubble but Jesus is going to be later than Zarquon.

Your cult is weird.

You need to be smacked sensible.

Witness reports are commonly shaky at best. Do the witnesses actually see 2 people in the car.
As for mom coming out of her coma before dying, that isn't a rare occurance. It happens quite a bit actally. What the poster has failed is give information such as was a window open with a breeze coming in at the same time? Sorry, but I am not buying it.

A classic case of grief-stricken and irrational.

God: Smiting people so that those who remain will kiss his ass a little more in their everyday lives.

"Why does God keep waiting to come"
For the same reason I hold back. No man wants to cum too soon. Who wants to be saddled with that lable?

Please tell me that there's a place called Bergen in the US and this person isn't in Norway. There are enough nutters in this part of the world already.
7/1/2008 9:47:15 AM
Yes, because there is no way that the other person actually survived and ran away.

@MilkyWay: I image Kaia is hard to pronounce in English, sooo...
... at least this will reflect good on Trondheim :P

@ MilkyWay : There are plenty of places in europe called 'Bergen'. Google revealed places in the Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium, so the chance that it's the Bergen in Norway is somewhat diminished.
