NEW YORK ‚Äď A 12-year-old New York boy with brain cancer has died after his family battled a hospital to keep him on a ventilator.
The lawyer for the Orthodox Jewish family says Motl Brody's bodily functions ceased Saturday. A machine had continued to work his lungs after he was pronounced dead Nov. 4 at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
The boy had already been declared brain dead, but some adherents of Jewish religious law say death occurs only when the heart and lungs stop functioning....
John Yurich wrote: If the boy was 12 years old then he was above the age of reason and thus because he was an adherent of Judaism then he passed away without receiving Jesus as his Lord and Savior and thus he is in Hell.
JY "the age of reason" cult is a load of balony.
The way you are using "Receiving" Jesus is indicative of salvation by works, a Roman Catholic dogma steeped in heresy. And sadly embraced by some Prots, who ignore sin, - free willer types.
If a sinner is one of God's predestinated Elect; - then and only then do they come to salvation.
Eph 1:4 According as *HE HATH CHOSEN* us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5. Having *PREDESTINATED* us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will"
1Pet 1:2 Elect *ACCORDING TO* the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied."
Lance Eccles wrote: John Yurich, if you think you know who is in hell, then you are making yourself equal to God. You claim to be an RC, yet the RC Church forbids speculation on who is in hell. Have you ever heard of the virtue of Hope?
Jesus stated "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER EXCEPT BY ME.". Now how much plainer can it be that when a Non Christian passes away without coming to Jesus that they go to Hell?
If the boy was 12 years old then he was above the age of reason and thus because he was an adherent of Judaism then he passed away without receiving Jesus as his Lord and Savior and thus he is in Hell.
