how to tell the biblical story in a way that makes a difference

Ryan, I’m not sure what to say. How do I know this person is two minutes from death? Am I about to kill him? Did god tell me the minute he will have a fatal stroke?

What if I cough a lot during my two minutes and they die before I can finish? Then it would be my fault.

And are you wondering what the bible says or what I think?

I don’t think there is anything in the bible that contemplates such a situation because they weren’t concerned about individual “salvation.” Most of the OT assumes no life after death.
