I can understand what you're saying. But consider this. I'm a christian, and I'll do what I can to try to make myself well. God sent doctors and nurses to help us, so that God can work through them to do what they need to do. Even THEN, sometimes God says, no, it's time for you to go. If that's the case, then I will go. I'm not ok with my parents and my sister being in Hell when I'll be in Heaven. I pray for their salvation everyday, asking for God to wake them up before it's too late for them. I don't want them to end up there. If I were to lose a son who was a christian and accepted Christ, then I would more than likely let him go knowing where he'd be. Yes, I'd be devastated because I'm human, but if he's a believer, then I know he'll be ok. I worry about the opposite end, where let's say the son is not a believer in Christ and dies. I'll be even more upset at the fact that he will likely not be in Heaven when he dies not being a believer. The bottom line is, God's the boss. If he tells me it's time to go, then I'm to go no matter what happens, whether the doctor works on me or not. Even Christians have to be comforted. Any loss is devastating no matter what the circumstances involving belief. Sure, we want to live as long as we can. But if we can't, then that's the way it is, it's God's will, and that means I'll just get to him much sooner!!!
