Why do you think God's wills people to come back to life?


#1

What is the Church’s explanation of this, if you know?

If God didn’t think it was time for that person to die, then why have that person die in the first place? I shouldn’t be questioning God’s will, but what do you make of this?

What do you, or what does the Church, suspect that person’s soul to be in a state of while “dead”? I’m sure many don’t have descriptions of heaven or hell, or even purgatory when they come back to life. What do you think happens to the soul?

People who “come back” are not dead. Just because the heart has stopped and needs a jump start does not make a person dead.
As such people are not dead then why would the Church have a position on this?
