Default Loud mouth preacher to the rescue!!

When I witness to people I often ask, "If you were to die in the next five minutes, where would you go, Heaven or Hell?" Or when I'm teaching a class on soul-winning, I ask, "Would you be able to tell someone how to be saved if he had only five minutes to live?"

Awesome isn't it?

Awesome isn't the word I would use. Personally I would focus on medical assistance not screaming at someone to accept Christ. It is also pretty arrogant to think that you have to save them, how would you know they aren't already a Christian? Oh wait you can't.

Are you in love with Christ? This would make the difference in understanding what you've posted here. Tell me.......

Dear God... please allow the preacher to pass by when I am dying! Instead make sure it is a nurse or someone who won't shake me and scream at me that I am a sinner going to hell! AMEN.

The burning question: is mouth-to-mouth resusitation only allowed in church???

If so, you'll have to just go ahead and die.

Betsey

Who do you think this scripture is referring to ?

A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; Isaiah 42

Does this sound like a loud mouth bible bashing preacher to the rescue ?.

You all are sooo missing the point. WOW!! If you were laying there dying, would you have wanted someone to stay and comfort you until help comes? Or perhaps your decision for Christ has already been made and you are confident you have nothing to worry about?

Comfort?! What is comforting about a loud mouthed preacher telling me to repent or burn in hell?!

I'm not missing the point at all. I think every dying person should be given the opportunity to make their peace with the Lord, if they have not already done so; obviously, the point is that the girl stopped breathing and, instead of doing CPR, this "loud-mouthed preacher" was screaming in her face.
He was basically holding her in his arms, letting her die.
If someone stops breathing, they need rescue breaths, you don't just start screaming at them.
The entire story sounds a bit odd to me.

Is that the only thing that you gathered from the story? Your missing some MAJOR points Sundance. Did he even know how to do CPR? The fact of the matter IS she's alive and she gained yet another day, who knows what she now....... contributes to someone else's life.
