I feel for her family, but she's with the Lord and not suffering any more.

We are praying Michael and family are comforted during this time; We know she is no longer in any pain and she has the sweet joy that we cannot explain and have yet to experience.

The same kind of God that would allow you to question what he does without wiping you off of the planet. That is a good God.

The perspective on this should not be what you said. Death is not a punishment or loss. She just changed dimensions more or less. She is at peace with God. She was sick and in pain here, unable to do what she was here to do. I bet if we could ask her if she wanted to come back, she would stay put with God. The proper persepctive should be the miracle of the saving grace of Jesus, keeping his word to the Sweets, and the testimony of her life to the bitter end. She migh have died to witness to the hospital staff and be the cause for someone accepting Christ.

There is more to the Christian life than having health, wealth, no troubles, etc. The bible clearly shows that the greatest men of God, and even Jesus himself, were afflicted. God breaks us over and over until we get it and until we trust him more and more. God's needs for himself and for us are above the list of needs that we make for for ourselves and others.

In a sense, God didn't do anything. Suffering is a consequence of sin, and since all mankind is sinful, all mankind suffers. Really, we brought it on ourselves. God in His grace sent Christ to die for us so we would not have to suffer eternally, but as long as we are on this earth, we will suffer.

I could be reading alot into what you are saying but it sounds like you are questioning your Faith and/or beliefs. This is not meant as a judgment on my part just to see if you are ok.

Dude. Stop reading the words and capture the thought.

We have the ability to question God. He allows it. That's it. We get to question the creator of the universe. Great men of the bible questioned God. He could easily wish us not to be when we doubt him. God wants us to love and trust him. He gives us custom made situations to develop that trust and love.

Dude, I think it's pretty interesting here. Occasionally. We haven't had a "What's your favorite song" thread in a while, though.

I don't see what is political about a person passing from this life to life everlasting. Thank God there is nothing political about it.

Huh?
It gets too political here most of the time.
The politics forum hasn't been touched in over a month and RJ hasn't posted much recently, so, I'm not sure what you're upset about.

I've noticed that the last few times you've posted here, you've seemed bitter and unhappy. Would you like to talk to someone one on one about any issues you may have with us or something else in your life? I'm sure several people here would be more than happy to to chat about whatever is bothering you.

I can't we're sitting here, fans of a TOTALLY Christian band, and arguing about the truth of life everlasting. Why keep posting petrafan1 if you know all you're doing is starting a fire? You're proving that's all you're seeking by reposting firey replies back to people WHO ARE CONCERNED that you seem to doubt a loving God. For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, so that none should perish, but have everlasting life. Kyle has that now because there was a point in her life when she called on the name of the Lord Jesus. Period. Through this, God has put more passion into every member of Stryper, and hopefully many will come to known Christ through this situation.
