"He will swallow up death forever."
Death comes for us all in one form or another. It might be the death of a beloved parent, whose advanced age has somewhat prepared us for the loss, but whose absence leaves a hole in our heart nonetheless. Or it might be the sudden death of a dear friend, whose departure not only deprives us of a cherished companion but also reminds us of our own mortality. Sometimes, when faced with such tragedies, we become bitter, angry at the world, and perhaps even angry at God. We wonder how a loving deity could allow such horrors to take place.
When faced with this type of tragedy, consider these comforting Bible verses about death. They offer few explanations for life’s hardest knocks, but they do remind us that life does not end with the physical death. And wherever we or they are in the process, God is always there to support and uphold us. Embrace that message as you ponder these verses and allow yourself to take comfort in the loving embrace of God.
Anonymous: O'Rourke believes most people would follow the law and turn their weapons in under his proposal for a mandatory buyback program and assault weapons ban. Unfortunately, this one statement shows us that the anti gun contingency full well knows the reason why any move to remove firearms will not have any significant impact on our safety as potential victims of shootings! In this statement they admit that they only expect the law abiding citizens to come forward in obedience to the law banning AR and AK weapons. The law abiding citizens are not the ones who are likely to harm us in the first place! So the success of Beto's program will not make any of us safer and he is well aware of that fact! So is now the time to ask these people how they plan to get the AR and AK rifles away from the criminal citizens who are the real problem? Seems to me that one be the one question foremost on everyone's mind, after all these are problem not, the law abiding people he has admitted are the only ones who will observe the new laws that ban the weapons anyway! Isn't this very article grounds to demand that they give us a proposal that will address the actual problem which is the weapons possession by people who will not comply with the law?
