Kind of sad, Chris, that you see life as something you are in a hurry to get out of. I felt that way one day too, but someone intervened before I had decided how to kill myself. No it wasn't God; it was my wife.<quoted text>
Yes, but we know who is in control of this place for a time. This is why I say while I'm thankful to be here and for the life God gave me, I do look forward to no longer being in this sin filled world. Stand up stand up for Jesus. Our trials are just a little while bro!
On the outside chance that this is all there is, which according to what evidence we currently have, seems to be most likely, it is sad that you can't find something in life so that you will want to stay alive as long as possible. That's what I look forward to; staying alive to see the world become a better place to live, hopefully, when man finally realizes that spending his life trying to figure out how to kill other humans without dying himself is not the best approach to life.
Could it be, though, that all the war mongers are actually trying to do man a favor by sending them to "paradise" sooner so the period of "life" becomes less intolerable?
