Medicine delays trip to heaven?

September 23, 2010

Why do very religious people  pursue life-extending medical treatments?

If they believe that everything happens for a reason and that God is the final authority, why do they not believe that God has made them sick to hasten their death because it is time for them to go to heaven?  Wouldn’t medical treatment be attempting to contravene God’s plans?

I read the obituaries some days and many of them include comments about “returning to his savior Jesus Christ” or being with a beloved partner again.  If one goes to a better place after death, why fight it so vehemently?

Just wondering.
