It bothers me when people say they do not believe God exists or believe in Him. So real everyone has the rights to his or her personal beliefs; after all, our world is about exercising one’s fundamental human rights.
However, that supposedly ‘rights’ is not applicable where the fundamental principles of spirituality are concerned, most importantly, when the individual alone must face his or her choice at the point of death. I still wonder how atheist negotiate the ends of their life before the final light dims out. Since death does not send invitations ahead to announce its arrival, some are taken away within the snapshots of seconds, which means they never get the time to amend and reconcile with their maker. On the other angle are those who face death and perhaps knew they are going to go anyway, and here, we ask whether they ever find this precious moment to tune in to the Holy Spirit.
We often ask why good people die earlier and the bad ones live longer. I believe that is God alone who decides who has to go and when. Also, I think the wicked ones are allowed to live longer so they can repent before it is too late.
Still, if they do not, they should not expect the Almighty to spare them.
May God bless us all.
