I’m not judging you at all Jess, my great uncle was a staunch atheist his whole life and was more committed to unbelief than Bertrand Russell. In the last week of his life, he dropped his resistance to God and was saved. I think God has genuine compassion and will meet people where they are at. Of course, I can only truly say this from my experience. I would not presume to know or understand yours.Your assuming that he will meet you where asked... I’m telling you that isn’t the case for everyone.
You have quite a few posters here who have genuinely sought god, genuinely wished to have that experience and have come up with nothing.
Telling said people - myself included - that we must not have asked genuinely enough isn’t fair. And it isn’t true.
I don’t see why human death would be a disqualifier. God is eternal. And I think, personally, that as a parent no matter how late my child came to the table I’d still welcome them.
Mark 9:24 King James Version (KJV)
24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
