I have a very hard time even commenting on this. Part of me feels like he wasn’t using what God gives us. Then part of me is like what if that is not what God told him to do. We cannot know? How can we judge that? I just i really just don’t know. But it does remind me of a story.
A man who has been notified that his house is going to be flooded and he needs to get out of the house. He says no I don’t have to, God is going to take care of me. Then the flood starts to rise and a sheriff comes along and tells him to get out. The man says no, God is going to save me. So, the floods continue to rise, and he climbs on top of the house. A boat comes along and he’s told to climb into the boat. He says, no, no , God is going to save me. Finally, a helicopter comes along and they lower the net to rescue him. The man says, no, no, God is going to save me! Well, the man drowns and goes to heaven. When he gets to heaven he says to God, “why didn’t you save me?” God says, “I sent the sheriff, I sent a boat, I sent a helicopter, what more did you want me to do?”
There is a point at which we have to take responsibility for our faith. When God sends a helicopter, you have to climb in.
