As you probably understood correctly by the title, my entire family are athiests. As my parents age, I sorely fear the day of their death…and I probably contemplate the miseries of Hell more than others.
How in God’s name am I going to deal with this? A protestant friend of mine tried to convince me that they might have accepted Jesus at an earlier time in their life and that they might be saved. Of course I can’t believe that but it would really be a comfort…wouldn’t it!
My parents don’t want a funeral of any sort. My dad is planning to be incinerated at the hospital, with all the other trash.
I realize that I have until the last day of their last breath…what comfort is there for me except that I at least realize that I was able to escape their fate and I have brought my children into the faith!!
