I would like to address the following in which Murray said: Quote: My family were very staunch Christians and attended services weekly until August 1978. This is when my brother died age 28.  At the time he was studying to become a priest.  I asked the question of many a man of the cloth, â?Twhy take someone that was studying to preach the word of god?â?T  To date I have had no reasonably answer : Unquote. Iâ?Tm sorry to hear that Murray and itâ?Ts quite sad because grieving, especially for a child is a heart-wrenching thing, possibly soul destroying. Our children arenâ?Tt supposed to die before us, are they? There are no rules about death are there? Perhaps only one which is that we all die at some stage. Some through illness, some through accidents, others because of varying reasons. Itâ?Ts not really about what we do for God either, itâ?Ts about what God has done (and finished) for us. Godâ?Ts only begotten Son died when he was about 33 years of age, quite young donâ?Tt you think? He didnâ?Tt die from sickness or an accident, he was tortured, arrested for crimes he never committed and died most brutally on the awful Roman Cross! Before He died He made a promise though; everyone who believes in him, even though they die (physically) shall not die spiritually but enter into the glories of heaven with God and Christ Himself forever. That is a wonderful hope so whatever age we are when we leave this mortal coil, if we are prepared to meet our maker and have that hope, then we should be prepared for that event whenever it happens. Without it, what is the point of life or indeed death? My sincere best wishes to you and your family, God bless have a peaceful and joyful Christmas. Last edited by Jean Law-Millie

We all have beliefs of some sort. Some of us believe in a loving God who was so filled with love for His creation that He sent His Son as a sacrifice for us all (John 3:16) Others believe in Allah, Buddha, the devil or nothing at all. Who are we as mere mortals to mock anyones belief?
