RE: Resurrection
Ahh...good ol' people. It's sad. I mean not so much that she's blind in her belief but that she was so depressed and unwilling to let go that she became dead-set that her loved one would come back. I mean, you'd think around the 1 month mark at least would be when one would decide that it wasn't "in god's will" to allow that to happen. Six months she kept believing, kept thinking that one day her husband would come back, that he was only away for a short time and he would be there once more to hold her hand for the rest of her mortal life. That's a long time to believe in something when it keeps failing to happen. Very sad despite how ridiculous the belief is.

Though I am curious...did she come up with the idea of his resurrection on her own or was it something he mentioned before going into a coma? The article said he didn't go to a doc because he thought god would cure him but did he say something in convo like "if I die I ain't really gonna be gone gone. I'm gonna say hi to our lord and shake some angel's hands, say hi to pa, then I'm gonna come back here right quick! Hallelujah, praise Jesus!" though probably less hick (just came out like that) And how large was this house to store 6 children and 7 adults (9 if you include the wife and corpse)?

Hummm. Proof that prayer doesn't work.

Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Resurrection
Maybe I should feel sad for these people, but this type of thing always comes off as incredibly arrogant to me.

"Sure, God lets thousands die every day and doesn't bring them back, but surely he wouldn't let someone I care about die! I'm SPECIAL!".

Quote:"We were trusting God…we thought, 'OK Lord, you know better," Kaling told the Spectator after court Monday, with lawyer Peter Boushy by her side.

"You know better, but that won't stop us from begging you to change your mind for six months!"

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

Amateurs. Everyone knows that you don't get resurrect until level 10.
They should have farmed the local woods for boars to kill so they could level up some more.

It's too bad they didn't have enough faith. Mustard seeds are pretty small, so, this should have been pretty easy. I'm sure most Christians have at least that much faith, so, apparently these corpse-stashers didn't.

Luke 17:6 Wrote:6 And the Lord said, “If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this sycamine tree, ‘Be rooted up, and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

RE: Resurrection
One word.

Eeeeeewwww!!! Gasp

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.
