    He takes our earthly mortal lives, but we all live on. Just our destinations differ.

    He created us and has the right to determine our lives and deaths.

    I know God does take people out, but some Christians say that when any person dies, even a kid, it was God's will. That God ordains the death of all men at a specific time.
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    If God is sovereign, then nothing happens without his will.

    Job 14:5 New International Version (NIV)

    A personís days are determined;
    you have decreed the number of his months
    and have set limits he cannot exceed.


    Psalm 139:16 New International Version (NIV)

    Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.

    So yes, God kills us all...

    He at least permits our deaths and he knows exactly when and how we will die and nothing happens without his will or permission.

    I always found it comforting. I know that when I go, it'll be God's will. We just don't understand his will, and this side of eternity we can't. At least when God permits the death of children, I think we have good hope that they will reach heaven.

    An old scandinavian fantasy story, written by Astrid Lindgren, had an older brother comforting his younger brother (who was dying of an ailment), that all that would happen is that he'd leave his shell behind and go to a land of light, while the big brother would have to toil and work in the sweat of his brow for sixty more years before he'd be worthy to come with him.

    On another note; Its a great work of fiction btw, featuring both of them journeying through magical kingdoms and fighting off an evil dragon.

    It's called "The Brothers Lionheart"
