Maybe he did... because he didn't steer it back on the road does not mean he didn't take it.

We all have our time, and reasons when death comes. Hope you're not insiuating that Pastor's are exempt from death.

Sounds like you need educating in religion! If you are born, you SHALT SURELY DIE!! It is not written HOW we will die but that we SURELY will die! Maybe Jesus will take the wheel if u are faced with this same dragedy because the bible says he watches over fools and babies! Wanna guess which one you are??

This is truly a sad story. People r dying from youngest to oldest. We should all count our blessing and b thankful that we r able to live another day. Treasure your families and also strangers. We r all children of God and I do believe he is angry at us all. No one should ever think that they r exempt from a tragedy because no man knows God's plan. I learned only a short time ago that you can't question him because he knows exactly what he is doing. You don't have 2 read a book or claim a religion to truly believe in God's power. I will pray 4 the family and I hope that they r able to move on without pain someday soon.

To SCNurse93, where did you get your religious education and who annointed you so much? Your ignorance is astounding and your comments vile, crude, offensive, and just plain wrong. Nowhere in The Bible does it say Jesus watches over fools and babies, a truly ignorant comment. You left out the big part about death. Yes, all who are born will die but those who are born again will live again. Those who are not born again will die meaning life in Hell eternally separated from God.
Pastor McMinn now has eternal life. He was good friend as well as my pastor and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him until we meet again in heaven.
SCNurse93, I am praying for you right now to ask that your veil of pride and arrogance can be lifted that you might get a glimpse into Gods heart. Despite your comments, he loves you, too, and wants you to become part of His kingdom.

This is a tragedy as far as those left behind that grieve for him.We may have the wrong idea concerning death,due to our selfish natures.He's out of this wicked world and now sleeps until Christ returns one day to take his followers home with him.Jesus himself told his followers to celebrate his death,not his birth.

When one door closes, upon death, another door opens to a new life in the eternal realm. I am a christian and this is my belief. My prayers are with all that have come into contact with Pastor McMinn. His memory shall forever live on. God bless family, congregation and friends.

First of all, my comment was not directed to the tragedy that struck your friend/pastor. And as far as you saying that my comment was crude,and offensive, i never said that JESUS said anything about fools and babies so maybe you need to read it again!! And let me kinda tell you that i know that jesus loves me! I know that he too died and rose again on the third day! i didnt leave out any BIG PART about death as you call it. I know all about heaven and hell! I know that heaven is a PREPARED PLACE for PREPARED PEOPLE!! And i also know that he said JUDGE NOT and ye shall not be judged!! So MR/MS PERFECT WANNA BE, keep your judgmental comments to yourself! And by the way, thank you for praying for me, we all need prayer! But while you down there praying for me, pray for the Lord to change some of your ways, maybe you need a glimpse of his heart!!

I guess in a way you could say I am judging. We all make judgements every day about many things that enter our lives. What The Bible says about judging in Matthew 7, and what most don't get, is that God will judge you on the same criterion that you judge others. So the Biblical truth here is to be aware of how you judge others. If you judge someone unworthy based on their looks, well God might make a similar judgement toward you. Now look in the mirror and judge for yourself how God may judge you.

To SCNURSE93; Why do your comments keep coming across with so much anger? What is it in your life that you feel you need to lash out at others? Objectively reread you comments and decide if your tone is not angry.

To quote you,"Maybe Jesus will take the wheel if u are faced with this same dragedy because the bible says he watches over fools and babies!"
In the above quote, you stated "he watches over..." Who is "he" in that sentence. You were, in fact, referring to Jesus whether you meant to or not. Read it again. And you should reread your posts for clarity and accuracy before you post them.

The Bible also says you should not call anyone a fool. Severe consequences for that. Read Matthew 5:22.

Please read my comment on judging above.

And speaking of "judging not" it appears you have judged me as MR. PERFECT WANNABE. Thank you for that comment. I am trying. You also referred to 1134 sex educator as a fool or a baby for his snippy, uncaring, and thoughtless comment. Did you not judge him, also? Keep your own counsel as you would have us all keep ours.

In following Christ I am reaching for perfection knowing that in this life I shall never attain it and there is nothing wrong with that. Better to be trying than not because if we do not we will slip back into evil ways. But at least I'm trying, not implying you are not. I can only speak to my efforts. And I shall continue to pray for releif from whatever is bothering you even if it is me.

How are you PREPARING to enter heaven? You must be born again, not prepared. There is no other way.

Prayers for his family and friends. I know he is in a better place now. My question is, "Why wasn't he wearing a seatbelt?" Not knowing of the severity of the crash, it COULD have saved his life.

To Mr. Stenders

A man may go to heaven:
without health, without wealth, without fame, without a great name, without learning, without big earnings, without culture, without beauty, without friends, and without a million other things, but HE CAN NEVER GO TO HEAVEN WITHOUT CHRIST!!! John 14:6 clarifies this.

BTW, Psalm 27 says anything else i need to say.

God Bless you and again, i'm sorry for the lost of your friend/pastor...
