Dear Pastor Sam
Dear Pastor Sam,
I was in a car accident and the other person in the other car died. The accident wasn’t my fault but I feel terrible. I pray at night for the family left behind but I still feel guilty. I wonder if the person was a Christian but I don’t know. What am I to do?
Dear Guilt Ridden,
We cannot make the decisions for others as to if they will accept Christ as their Savior. We can pray for the lost and share our testimony when we are given the opportunity. I think it is great that you pray for the family of the person who was in an accident with you. Everyone has an appointment with death and all we can do is be prepared ourselves.
Thanks for writing and I will keep you in my prayers. Don't feel guilty this was not your fault.
