Scriptures like this (and this) are why I changed the ending of Streiker’s Morning Sun and followed that up with If Only for This Life. Some readers have been irritated or confused by my extension of Adair and Fletcher’s relationship into the supernatural, and some, ah, hate it.
I understand that, which is why I began to address those concerns here. My own Southern Baptists have very strict rules about God’s not messing with people after death other than to send them to heaven or hell. But then how do you explain this verse?
