....at the hand of another's anger, drunkenness, or foolishness; or mother natures acts?? Someone said to me the other day, about those who died in Boston and West, TX, that it was "just" their time! My question is: "Was it?" I know that we all have an appointed time to die; but, does God, who apparently has that time all planned out, allow it to come by way of evil or a senseless accident? Or maybe even during a natural disaster? I am just thinking out loud, but are things that happen to take a life from this earth, other than some form of age related, or illness-related death, His plan or will for us. Even in a Does God put some here just to die in battle or in the heat of a war? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. I do not think that people who are killed, like on 9/11 were necessarily meant to die then. I think those are unnatural deaths, and that they take life before the pre-ordained time God had set upon that life when they came into this life? Are some people just taken prematurely, and not in line with God's plan for his or her life? After all, would God really allow a Child of His to die at the hands of a brutal, homicidal maniac?
