Sorry but if these people are such good christians why is there son dead. How can they be greiveing when in fact they are the ones who called the police. What happened for there son to need a weapon anyways was this the plan for the parents do you no behind closed doors sometimes things are a whole lot different.

this is in reference to the comment made by just wondering in Greenville,SC. I take it that you are not a Bible reader or Believer. That remark you made in reference to the parents of that young man, and their CHRISTIANITY really is sad on your behalf, so if I may let me just say this to you. FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVED IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE!!! Now my point is this. If God was/is the Creator of Life, ALL POWERFUL, SPOKE THIS WORLD INTO EXISTENCE AS GENESIS CHAPTER 1 STATES THEN WHY WAS HIS ONLY SON NAILED TO A CROSS AND CRUCIFIED, BEATEN BEYOND RECOGNITION FOR THE SINS OF YOU AND I, BECAUSE HE WAS WITHOUT SIN,SO WAS HIS FATHER SO A CRUEL, DISRESPECTFUL, UNGODLY PEOPLE COULD BE SAVED. RIGHT NOW IS NOT THE TIME FOR YOU TO BE WONDERING OR SECOND GUESSING THIS YOUNG MAN OR HIS PARENTS STAND WITH CHRIST. YOU SHOULD BE ASKING YOURSELF I WONDER IF I WERE TO DIE RIGHT NOW OR EVEN TONIGHT WOULD I GO TO HEAVEN OR HELL? THAT SHOULD BE YOUR ONLY ? THE BIBLE TELLS US LIFE IS LIKE A VAPOR HERE ONE MINUTE AND GONE THE NEXT. WE ARE NONE PROMISED TOMORROW SO WHILE YOU ARE JUST WONDERING YOU SHOULD JUST WONDER ABOUT YOUR OWN JUDGEMENT CALL.

You are so pitiful from Greenville. God help your ignorant heart. Its people like you who make the world such an uproar. Keep your critiscm to yourself. Bro. and Sis. Speed are very good Christians. They can't help that their Son chose the wrong road. Sin is Death and without Grace we all would be on that same broad road, but God's Grace has kept us this far. God Bless the Speed Family.
