2 Passings of Note This Past Week

Posted in Christianity at 10:07 pm by Lisa Ritchey

First, there was the passing of Paul Crouch, Sr., founder of Trinity Broadcasting Network.  He was 79 and has suffered with numerous heart ailments over the past several years.  I did not agree with all he did, but he did get the Gospel around the world. I remember when they threw the switch that sent TBN over the internet.  When they threw the switch, I heard, “That’s it!  It is done now.”   That was the moment the Gospel actually covered the World.  He also helped some truly great ministries be heard. You may not like or agree with Paul and Jan, but they do love The L–d and did serve Him well.

Saturday afternoon the world felt the shock of losing actor Paul Walker.  He was 40 and the father of a teen son and daughter.  On his Twitter account he described himself as, ” Outdoorsman, ocean addict, adrenaline junkie… and I do some acting on the side.”

He was a professing Christian and according to all accounts I have read, lived it, too.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of these men.  I know they both will be sorely missed.

If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, you will one day see both again.  If you are not, PLEASE read The Road To Jesus.  Saying “Yes” to Him will be the best, and most important, decision you will ever make.

(13) But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
(14) For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
(15) For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
(16) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
(17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
(18) Wherefore comfort one another with these words.1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
