PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...



I hope he keeps his faith to the end. 

 

Death is not the time to realize how wrong  and useless your beliefs were.

Yes, hope his mind does manage to maintain the delusion - which it appears in times of trouble or sickness the mind is well equipped to deal with this, reinforcing beliefs. 

 

We all know how hard it is finding out you were wrong, and the turmoil that goes with it - losing faith in his condition would be the definition of hell.

 

I hope medical science does cure him, or at least make his passing more bearable. My thoughts go out to him and his family.

 

I wonder if other Christians will proclaim that god is punishing him for some unknown sin? That's happened before today.

Do you all remember the movie Man on the Moon, with Jim Carey portraying Andy Kaufman?  There was that scene near the end when he has gone to a "healer" in desperation to cure his cancer.  The "healer" performs that fake surgery on his abdomen, and as everyone around him is cheering and praising the healer, Andy sees how the man is faking it and realizes it's hopeless.  He laughs and laughs.  That scene still haunts me.  I agree, best not to lose your faith at a time like this.
