I have heard people say you should consider yourself lucky if you get cancer, because you have a chance to repent and get closer to God as your days come to an end. That maybe getting cancer is a blessing.
But what about the people that pass away via accident or in a quick manner?
Of course the assumption is that you should be living as a good Christian regardless, so it shouldnt matter when you die. I guess my question is, does God choose certain people by giving them a chance to repent? and can we say the same thing about AIDS?
