NBA Legend Kobe Bryant Is Very Likely Burning In Hell
(I sure wish I could believe Kobe went to Heaven; but unfortunately, Biblically, Catholics are not saved!)

By David J. Stewart | January 2020

Mark 7:7-9, “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.”

       I was saddened today to learn about the sudden untimely death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant (1978-2020). Kobe and eight others, including his 13 year old daughter (nine total), were tragically killed in a helicopter crash today. I regret the tragic event and my sympathies go out to their family and loved ones. Yet, I am writing this article for the sake of the living, to warn everyone I can about the dangers of going to Hell forever, which according to the inspired Word of God, will happen if you follow the manmade Roman Catholic religion!

Years ago, my youngest daughter got me into the habit of reading the biographies of famous people, as a hobby. I am curious about the lifestyle and religious beliefs of famous people. There is nothing as tragic as reading about the horrible death of a person (famous or not), and then come to find out that they are also died the SECOND DEATH in Hell. Revelation 21:8, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” Also, in Revelation 20:14-15, “And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Every human being MUST choose between Heaven or Hell—choosing either faith alone in Jesus Christ (apart from all self-righteous works), or else you will by default choose eternal damnation in the Lake of Fire. If you choose not to choose, you have chosen Hell for your eternal abode!!!

The Catholic Faith of Kobe Bryant

Los Angeles, Calif., Jan 26, 2020 / 02:08 pm (CNA) — Basketball superstar Kobe Bryant died Sunday in a helicopter crash in Southern California, along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.

Bryant, the father of four, was Catholic.

In all nine people were killed in the Jan. 26 crash.

Bryant, 41, is widely considered one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He retired in 2016 after a 20 year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, in which the shooting guard won five NBA championships, a league MVP award, two scoring championships, and myriad other distinctions. ...


I say with all certainty and Biblical authority that the Catholic church (both Roman and Russian Orthodox) is of the Devil. Catholicism is a prisonhouse of manmade religion!!! There are merely 21 million Seventh-Day Adventists. There are merely 8 million Jehovah's Witnesses. There are merely 15 million Mormons. These false religions all pale in comparison to the megawhore of CATHOLICISM'S OVER ONE BILLION MEMBERS WORLDWIDE!!! The Devil is a beautiful liar!

From the cradle to the casket, Catholicism has a religious package for you! Like Kentucky Fried Chicken's slogan: “WE DO CHICKEN RIGHT,” the Catholic church does religion right! They really do! I have been in a few Catholic churches to visit on Guam, and I was impressed with all the rituals, architectural grandeur of their buildings (inside and out), the fancy priestly garb, and the whole religious thing. Now, I didn't say they speak THE TRUTH, nor did I say they are Christians; I said they do religion right, from a secular point of view. I mean, man, if you want to feel religious, Catholicism is the way to go, and it will take you straight to the Lake of Fire (Hell) forever and ever!!! What saith the Scripture? ...

Mark 7:7-9, “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.”

The preceding passage of Scripture practically gives the address of the Catholic Vatican in Rome! Catholics sinfully worship God in vain! Instead of obeying the commandments of God, they follow a bunch of fabricated manmade doctrines. Religion wants to fit us with glasses, but the Lord wants to open our eyes with THE TRUTH! A demon's favorite activity is to make unsaved people feel comfortable in their false religion! Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born again!!! That is exactly what Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Catholics, Seventh-Day Adventists, Lutherans and umpteen other false religions do! They adhere to the moral codes, ethics and good principles of the Holy Scriptures, “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2nd Timothy 3:7).

“Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” —Psalm 40:4

Over the years, I have had countless web visitors e-mail me, telling me about their messed-up lives, marriages and families (to which I can certainly relate), and my heart sympathizes with them each time. Yet, they don't want to hear the answer, which is to center one's life (and that of one's entire family) around a local New Testament, Bible-believing, soulwinning, sin-fighting, people-loving, truth-telling, Christ-honoring, church. That excludes Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, where all that matters is money. They have yet to prove me wrong, banning me from their church services since 2014 because I TOLD THE TRUTH! We all need Bible preaching to help us think right! We all need fellowship with fellow believers, for comfort and encouragement, and not from the heathen ungodly world. You will become in 5-years who or what you hang around. Proverb 13:20, “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” God gave us the local church as our surrogate family in the Lord—a place to exalt the Savior, evangelize the sinner, and edify the saints. Sadly, churches today have become mere entertainment fun centers!

What saith the Scripture? Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” There you have it—salvation is by faith alone, not by works, lest any man should boast. Also, please consider Romans 4:3-5, “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” This is such an important passage of Scripture. There is no mistaking God's plan of salvation for mankind—we are saved by FAITH ALONE.

I love that phrase: “For what saith the Scripture?” Do you know why the apostle Paul made that statement? It is because he is quoting God's Word as AN AUTHORITY! Paul refers the reader to the Scriptures as an authority, to support what he is teaching and claiming about being saved BY FAITH ALONE. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of understanding this truth. I have met countless fools in my life while soulwinning, who were hard-hearted toward the truth of the Gospel, sharing with me their vain thoughts about God, the Holy Bible, life and the afterlife, fringing on insanity. It doesn't matter what you think, nor what I think, nor what other people think; all that matters is WHAT SAITH THE SCRIPTURE??? Ultimately (the favorite word of the former senior pastor of Harvest Baptist Church on Guam), everything in life boils down to whether or not someone has faith in the Bible as being the inspired Word of God. If a man rejects the Holy Bible as being authored by His Creator, almighty God, that man is well nigh hopeless.

The Satanic Catholic Deception

The Catholic church is Satan's favorite religion! Nearly everything they teach goes against the Word of God. For example: Catholics forbid eating meats on certain days, and forbid priests to have a wife. What saith the Scripture? 1st Timothy 4:1-3, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.” Need I say more?

Okay, you asked for it! Please consider Matthew 23:9, “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” What do all Catholics call their dopey priest?—FATHER! Obviously the Bible is not forbidding calling your Dad your father; but rather, we are not supposed to elevate men to the position of worship, as if they were God! Do you think I'm kidding? ...


WICKEDNESS! No one should ever reverence any other human being. Only God is called “reverend” in the Holy Bible. Psalm 111:9, “He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.” Only God is holy and reverend; men are sinful and wicked! John 8:24, “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he [THE CHRIST], ye shall die in your sins.” Catholicism errantly teaches that water baptism is the door of salvation into the Catholic church. What saith the Scripture? John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” Jesus is THE DOOR into Heaven. John 10:1 warns that THIEVES AND ROBBERS try to sneak into Heaven “SOME OTHER WAY” (like Catholics do). Catholic priests are liars!!! You go through Jesus Christ, by faith alone, to get to Heaven. Water baptism is one's public profession of faith, AFTER, you are already saved! Catholics instead pervert water baptism, adding it as a requirement of salvation. Biblically, there is no such thing as a sacrament!

Where else does the Catholic church go horribly awry on the Holy Bible? I am so glad that you asked my fine non-feathered friend. You are not going to believe this!!! Let's take a look at the Ten Commandments. LOOK WHAT THESE RETARDS DID! The Catholic church totally REMOVED GOD'S SECOND COMMANDMENTS—you know, the command not to bow down to worship graven images! And instead, the Vatican split God's TENTH COMMANDMENT NOT TO COVET INTO TWO COMMANDMENTS! I'm not kidding. Let me quote them, so you don't miss this.

Here is what Catholics teach at (notice that the 2nd commandment which forbids bowing to graven images is GONE! It jumps from the 1st commandment to the third. I highlighted the 9th and 10th commandments in red, because in the Bible only the 10th commandment is not to covet, the Catholics deceitfully split the 10th into another 9th commandment, to compensate for the missing 2nd Commandment). This is disgusting heresy! ...

Here are the Catholic Ten Commandments:

  1. I am the LORD your God. You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve.
  2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
  3. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.
  4. Honor your father and your mother.
  5. You shall not kill.
  6. You shall not commit adultery.
  7. You shall not steal.
  8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  9. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.


Now here are God's Ten Commandments from Exodus 20:1-17...

  1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me (verse 3)
  2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God (verses 4-5)

  3. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain (verse 7)
  4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy (verse 8)
  5. Honour thy father and thy mother: (verse 12)
  6. Thou shalt not kill (verse 13)
  7. Thou shalt not commit adultery (verse 14)
  8. Thou shalt not steal. (verse 15)
  9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour (verse 16)
  10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's (verse 17)

Do you see what these ungodly reprobates did? Well do you? Look closer if you missed it. The Catholic church completely REMOVED the SECOND COMMANDMENT and divided the TENTH INTO TWO COMMANDMENTS. They had to do this to hide their woeful deception, that they removed God's commandment not to worship graven images and idols (i.e., statues of Mother Mary and patron saints, like Saint Anthony and his stupid dog).

I still remember in Bible college that me and my soulwinning partner bought a white statue of Mary at a garage sale, and were throwing it against the sidewalk trying to smash it, but the darn thing wouldn't break! We eventually knocked the head off. It took awhile, but we finally smashed it into pieces. Praise the Lord!

When we moved from Chicago to Guam in 2004, we bought a home. My former wife sadly divorced me in 2006, and we lost the home the pay for ungodly legal expenses soon thereafter. I detest lawyers, and so did Jesus (Luke 11:46)! The previous owners of the home were staunch Roman Catholics. They were so devout that they erected a massive shrine to The Virgin Mary (which was now in my front yard). It was 8 feet high, 6 feet wide, and was made out of solid concrete. I bought a sledge hammer, but me and my son couldn't do more than take a chip out of this fortress. There were a dozen concrete stairs leading up to a 3 foot high statue of Mary (ALL IN MY FRONT YARD!). Aarrgghh!

So I left it, not knowing how to dismantle and destroy the idol. After my wife divorced me in 2006, I declared war on that damned shine in my front yard. I knew I was going to lose the home, but I didn't want the next home owner to worship that darn thing. I didn't want that blood on my hands. So I hired a local contractor to remove the idolatrous graven image from my property. It cost me $1,000, but it was the best $1,000 I ever spent in my life! Two of the contractor's workers quit, because the shrine was so difficult to tear down. The third man almost quit, but they removed it. Haha! To Hell with The Virgin Mary!!! To this day, I still feel like King Asa in 2nd Chronicles 15:16, “And also concerning Maachah the mother of Asa the king, he removed her from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove: and Asa cut down her idol, and stamped it, and burnt it at the brook Kidron.” Yeah buddy!!!

I do not hate people, God forbid, but I hate the Catholic religious cult, which damns men's souls to Hell! Tragically, unless Kobe Bryant experienced a conversion while the helicopter was going down, he is in fact burning and suffering in the torments and fires of Hell this moment, and for all eternity without end. I am sad about that. I mean no disrespect to his loved ones still alive. Jesus plainly warned in John 3:3b, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” You cannot find salvation in the Catholic religion. We can only hope that Kobe wasn't a very good Catholic, and that in his soul he was solely relying only upon the GOOD NEWS (“GOSPEL”) of Jesus Christ crucified for his sins on the cross, buried, and bodily resurrected the third day (1st Corinthians 15:1-6). Every devout Catholic goes straight to Hell when they die, because they were trusting in the accursed Seven Sacraments of the Catholic cult; and not trusting in the precious redeeming blood of the Lamb of God, Jesus! Catholicism offers a religion for unsaved heathens—where you can participate in a formal ritual, eat a Eucharist wafer, and be offered a false security by some unholy priest!

Catholicism is a false religion rooted in self-righteousness. Lest you doubt what I say, please compare what the Roman Catholic church teaches with the inspired Holy Scriptures. Here is the heresy taught by Catholics. I have emphasized in bold type several of their false teachings that WORKS are required to get to Heaven. Notice all the mention of doing positive actions (self-righteous works) to get to Heaven...

A Clarification of Good Works

A grave misunderstanding about Catholicism is the notion of good works. The term good works seems to have a negative connotation to it in certain other Christian circles.

... the more positive actions we perform the more we remain in friendship with God.

Hence the more good works we perform the more we remain in friendship with God.

The bottom line is that God will judge us in the end by our actions done throughout our entire lives. Throughout our lives we can choose to remain in God’s friendship or not. We have free will to choose whether to obey God or not and if we choose to disobey God, which is to sin, then we choose not to remain in God’s friendship.

Yes, we must have faith that our savior is Jesus Christ, but at the same time our actions must reflect that faith.

Faith and Works: Both Necessary
So, in a sense, good works are essential to get to heaven, but not alone. Nor is faith alone sufficient, although faith is also necessary. James 2:26 tells us that faith without works is dead. In Romans 3:22 we see that we are saved by faith in Jesus Christ. Catholic theology supports these teachings of the Bible and holds them in balance.

...The Catholic Church does not believe that good works alone will get anyone into heaven nor does it believe that faith alone will get anyone into heaven. However, good works in conjunction with faith do have merit. [emphasis added]

SOURCE: A Clarification of Good Works

What you have just read is a false gospel! Salvation is by faith alone.

What is really creepy is that what you just read is eerily close to what Paul Washer, Ray Comfort, Ellen G. White (Seven-Day Adventism), Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons and other reprobates of the Christian faith falsely teach! I'm not kidding! Take a look at what Mormons teach about repentance for salvation. Take a look at what Seventh-Day Adventists teach about repentance and salvation. Take a look at what Evangelist Ray Comfort teaches people! Dear reader, these are DEVIL-DOG PREACHERS!!! I say that kindly, but truthfully. The Bible in no uncertain terms tells us that eternal life is the “FREE GIFT” of God (Romans 5:15, 6:23). This means that any form of “positive actions” (as the website calls good works) is not permissible in God's plan of salvation for humanity.

A Changed Life Cannot Be Used As Proof of Salvation

As we read earlier, so quote I to you again, from Romans 4:3-5, “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” The notion that positive actions (works) are necessary to seal, verify or complete one's transaction of salvation is of the Devil.

I listened to Paul Washer today. I heard his Bible study on Romans chapter 3 in its entirety. Paul says a lot of great things, and I admire his passion; however, he gets the Gospel wrong, ADDING a changed life as being necessary to prove that you are really saved. That is a horrible way to live, being in a state of constant fear and uncertainty, thinking that you have to live a certain way to prove that you are really saved.

Here is an exact heretical quote from Evangelist Ray Comfort...

“So if the plane goes down, you'd end up in Hell! There are two things you have to do to be saved. Do you remember what they are? I told you what they are—You've got to repent and trust the Savior! ... God's offering you everlasting life upon your repentance and faith in Christ. Who in his right mind wouldn't say, 'Whoa! That's a good offer!' (The curious woman asks what it means to “repent”?)... Have you ever said you're sorry to someone you did something wrong to? That's all repentance is—You've sinned against God; it's a matter of saying, 'God, I'm sorry,' and then LIVING A LIFESTYLE that proves the reality of your repentance. That's what repentance is, it's a continual thing! God, 'I'm sorry, but I'm not going going to lie or steal or blaspheme Your name ever again. It has that attitude! And the second thing—trust in Jesus!” [emphasis added]

SOURCE: Evangelist Ray Comfort, I've never killed anyone” (MP3 clip from video).

BLASPHEMY!!! Dear reader, what Ray Comfort is teaching is exactly what Roman Catholics teach—that faith is not enough to be saved. Ray is oh so WRONG! In addition, these damned heretics (Galatians 1:7-9 - “accursed”) all teach that more is required! They all claim that some degree of works (whether described as positive actions, fruits or a changed life) is essential, mandatory, to get to Heaven. They are liars! My friend, stop and consider this fact—anything that an unsaved person can imitate cannot be used as proof of salvation! That's right. Can an unsaved person do good works? Yes. Can an unsaved person love their family and others? Yes. Can an unsaved person be religious, honest, care about people, have high moral standards, and outstanding character? Yes, yes and yes, of course!

So none of these things can be examined as proof of salvation. Jesus said that harlots and murderers entered into Heaven before the religious crowd! Matthew 21:31b, “Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.” Wow! Think about what Jesus said. He said whores and thieves are going to Heaven, but not the religious Pharisees! Put that in your craw all you Lordship Salvation nuts! How does that fit in with your unbiblical habit of fruit inspection? Ray Comfort would say that whores are going to Hell. Hey, Jesus didn't say “repentant former whores and publicans;” but rather, He said believing “publicans and the harlots” (thieving tax collectors) are going to Heaven. Clearly, a person CAN be saved by faith alone!!!

The whole Biblical concept of IMPUTATION is not only that God imputes our sins to Christ by faith (Romans 4:5), but also that “God imputeth righteousness without works” (Romans 4:6). I am so sick and tired of religious clowns in the pulpit, who preach with a forked-tongue, saying that salvation is without works, yet they claim that some degree of works must accompany faith to be valid.

“The Catholic Church does not believe that good works alone will get anyone into heaven nor does it believe that faith alone will get anyone into heaven. However, good works in conjunction with faith do have merit.” [emphasis added]

SOURCE: A Clarification of Good Works

What saith the Scripture? Galatians 3:26, “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” There is no mention of any type of works! The evidence of being saved is the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit (God in us). 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” This is the ONLY way that a person can know if they are individually saved, in accordance with believing the Gospel. NO ONE can determine if someone else is saved by examining the fruit of their life. What did Jesus mean in Matthew 7:20, “Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” We must cross-reference this Bible passage with other passages, comparing Scripture with Scripture. ...

1st John 4:1-3, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”

So we learn that the “FRUIT” is one's doctrine. That is exactly what the Bible says. We can KNOW whether someone is saved or not by examining their doctrinal position on Jesus Christ concerning salvation. Only by the direct testimony of someone's mouth concerning the Gospel of Jesus Christ, can we determine for certain if a person is saved or not.

I Care About You Dear Reader—Please Do Not Go To Hell Forever!

I did not write and publish this article to hurt anyone's feelings, nor to shed a negative light on Kobe Bryant; but rather, I wrote these words with a heart of loving concern, exposing the damned Catholic prisonhouse of religion that condemns billions to Hell forever!!! Respectfully, unless Kobe experienced conversion just before the helicopter went down, he is in fact burning and suffering in the torments and fires of Hell this moment, and for all eternity without end. Revelation 14:11, “And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” I cannot say unequivocally, absolutely, with all certainty that Kobe Bryant went to Hell. I truly hope he went to Heaven. Only God and Kobe know where he went! The heathen world ALWAYS assumes that their loved ones went to Heaven, but that unfortunately is NOT what the Holy Bible says. John 3:3b, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

“Faith is the only righteous thing that I can do!”
—Pastor Jack Hyles, a quote from the MP3 sermon titled: God's Reversal Of Psalm 51

I am saddened by the sudden death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant. He was only 41 years old, with much life left to live. It just goes to show that life is predictably unpredictable. Proverb 27:1, “Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.” Death could come at any moment for you, or me. We just don't know. Life is short, Hell is hot, and eternity is a long time! Have you been born-again dear friend? That is why I wrote this article, not to offend anybody or be unkind. The heathen world always assumes that everyone automatically goes to a better place in the after life, but that is NOT what the Word of God teaches and warns.

John 3:3, “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Kindly, unless Kobe Bryant was born-again by the incorruptible Word of God (1st Peter 1:23), he is burning in Hell right now and forever! God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 33:11). God wants all men to repent to be saved (1st Peter 3:9). The choice is yours dear friend. Please don't delay. You could die of a brain aneurism or heart-attack. One lady on Guam was sitting, watching a parade, and a big tree branch broke and fell on her, killing her. Another woman was sitting in her car, waiting at a traffic light, and a drunk driver slammed into the back of her car, breaking her neck and killing her. Last year a man and his wife from Kansas visited Guam on their 20th something honeymoon. They went snorkeling, holding hands in the water. They got caught in the ocean current. She drowned, but her husband was able to break free of the strong current. How sad and tragic! He went back to Kansas alone. Oh listen dear reader, today could be the last day of your life. Are you ready? I am. I was ready to go yesterday! I am not afraid to die. I know that my name is written in the blessed Lamb's Book of Life in Heaven.

Death does not discriminate. I have always enjoyed visiting cemeteries, because I study the tombstones. You can learn a lot from the messages and dates of someone's birth and death. People tend to think that only old people die, but you'd be surprised how many young people die. Visit a cemetery sometime, and you'll find many graves of children, teens and deceased of all ages buried. One of my dear web visitors, a grieving mother, wrote to me this week to tell me that her 25 year old son commit suicide. She was only 20 seconds in delay to walk into her living room, when she heard a gunshot, and found her dead son. He shot himself with his father's gun. Humbly, I comforted her the best I could with the Scriptures. I have been praying for her. It breaks my heart. My best friend while growing up commit suicide. When I went off to Bible college at age 18, we parted ways. Five years later I received word that he shot himself with his father's shotgun, in another state, while drinking alcohol. I wept much at his funeral, and still pray for his family when I think about them. Life is not fair! No parent should have to outlive their child.

A helpful MP3 sermon for those who have suffered personal tragedies in their life is called: “You Can't Reason With God,” by Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001). Everyone experiences heartbreak and suffering in life, at all ages, varying from one person to the next. Some people do suffer more than others. Sometimes it is our own fault, other times it was completely beyond our control. Everything God does is right, fair or not, trust Him. Proverbs 3:5-7, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.” God is always good; always God is good!!! I am sorry to learn about Kobe Bryant's untimely death, and that of his 13 year old daughter, and seven others. It is sad and tragic, but please make sure you are ready to meet your Maker. YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!!!

2nd Corinthians 11:3-4, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”
