I heard a great sermon this morning and wanted to share, given the various reactions on this thread to someone who has just passed.
Our minister (free methodist) said he has been asked a few times after giving a funeral service "isn't it hard to give a service for someone you know is a non-believer and will be going to hell". His response "I'm not important enough to decide whether someone is going to heaven or hell, that is something only God can do. The best I can do is point people in the direction of Jesus".
I'm not quoting idiots who promote unsafe recovery strap techniques anymore. :miff:
