This is sad. Sometime ago I visited a listing prospect, who was dying from cancer. As I visited with the person, and once I was ready to leave I asked if I could pray for him. His reply was I don't believe in that, I said ok, but I would prayed for him after I left. My spirit was piecered, like someone had taken a knife and stabbed me in the heart. At that time I understood Paul and grieving for the lost. As I prayed for this gentleman , my hope was the seed that was planted that day piecered this gentleman's heart. He passed away a couple of weeks later. It's truly sad, but there is always hope.Norma
Sad, very sad, the blind leading the blind. I remember years back, being a new believer and seeing “love story.” What a bomb of a movie! The guy is dying and all he wants to do is to pine about his loss. I remember saying pretty loud in the movie, “SOMEONE TELL THIS GUY ABOUT JESUS!” My embolden witness wasn’t very well received in the theater.
I'm looking at Michael Douglas' situation from the perspective of having my dad die of pancreatic cancer in March 2010. I know nothing about throat cancer. But, where Michael Douglas is getting 80 percent survival rate in Stage 4 (death's door) is beyond me. Some Hollywood doctor must've told the actor that. He looked like he had a truckload of make-up on for the show, while slumped down in the chair; and, after eight weeks of chemo and radiation, he'll look even worse, especially if he can't eat solids. But, who knows. God may grant Michael Douglas mercy and heal him.
I don't know if these men are believers or not (only the Lord knows their hearts). However, I see why you would say that, given the levity of their comments and the non-mention of God. If he is putting all his faith in science, truly is sad.
