"God" isn't causing your aunt to die. It's just "life" progressing. She got cancer and now her life is coming to a close, that's just how nature works, and just like probably trillions of other organisms. The best you can do is to celebrate the life she had.

Fair enough. It just seems like some people get screwed more than others.

It's not unfair. Many other people die of cancer as well as other diseases.... sooner or later, you will be reminded of your and others' mortality....

God decided that now might be best time for your aunt to join his glorious kingdom in happiness and splendor. We never understand why, just have faith that all will be right in the end. I pray for your aunt, you and your family

That is a bit short of the average 75 year lifespan, but it's still a pretty long life.

Since your Christian, I'll give you Christian advise.

Suffering is not worthless. Christ suffered on the Cross for us all. If he is Christ and we as Christians are "little Christs" then our suffering can have value as well. Take the pain and fear you have and offer it back to Jesus in love.

People do not need to suffer. You sound like an abused slave to religion. Grow a pair and question things.

I will debate this with you at any other time. Right now this is about your aunt and those she cares about. Come back in a month and I will talk (or debate) this with you.

You know what they say Geo, there is no suffering no man can't handle, when it's for the other person to suffer.

It's a dark path when you go down this God uses suffering for our own good path, cause hey, you know that terminally patient ? well lets take away their pain meds, so they can suffer more, bring them to Jesus, redemption suffering, suffering purifies the soul.

Allow me to give you some RATIONAL advice. There is a point where making excuse after excuse for some God belief just pisses people off. It insults their intelligence, and it makes you appear as though you care more about justify a religious belief beyond all else.

Hey here is a dead child rip to shreds by some dogs......................well God does use our suffering...........JUST STOP, JUST F*CKING STOP.

Offer it back to Jesus in Love....................OH FOR F*CKS SAKE.

I don't back away from what I say, but another forum, another time. I'm not here to make points off of this woman's aunts suffering, nor off of her anguish at seeing this suffering. I noticed she was Christian and offered her something in keeping with her faith on how to deal with this moment in her life.

Don't like it? Fine. Go show your self-righteous indignant anger somewhere else. Don't let the piss-poor attitude of the religion forum poison everything else.
