I have not read the OP - just the thread title, and have not read a single post in the entire thread.

I would just like to say that even though I was born naked - I do NOT intend to DIE naked.

At the very least I hope to be wearing a hospital gown!

For the gifts and callings of God are irrevocable Romans 11 verse 29.
I believe that Job was referring to his "Earthly possessions" on that one.

Hahaha! Too funny w/ the hospital gown comment! But when you pass on, you're spirit won't be wearing that hospital gown! You cannot bring Earthy possessions with you when you leave the mortal life, though (in the Christian belief)!

Moderator cut: interruption

Folks, I have just deleted about half of this thread due to one hijack that caused all sorts of sidebars of off topic posts that had nothing to do with the op which was a message from the book of Job..Out of respect for the op, I am not closing this thread at this time but will start issuing infractions for off topic, and bashing each others thoughts or beliefs..

Amen and I learned a lot from Job and his story and how he was given so much more later on. Therefore, I now never forget, in suffering, God is love! God allows sufferings because He has greater blessings for us later.
