Eric said on the show that he officially left the church when he was 26.
Naturally, it makes some of us wonder why he left the church. Was there
something the church could have done better to retain him as a member, or did he
simply stop believing in some core doctrine? I'm sad he has passed away. He
seemed like a friendly man with lofty goals and certainly did not deserve the
treatment Andi Dorfman gave him for asking her to be more expressive even though
he might have misread her.
Rather than turn this into a religious battle, let's just mourn together
young man who died a tragic death. Many will miss him.
How do you know he didn't go to church? How do you know he wasn't
enjoying the Sabbath with is family and with God. He was living life to
it's fullest. He was happy!!! Many a Sunday I have gone to church and
then enjoyed the beautiful day. Things happen. Be happy and enjoy life rather
than criticize another. Sadducee s ARE SAD YOU SEE.
@Scientist,Re: "I would rather die out there than sitting in a Church
pew"...Chances of you dieing in a church pew... aren't that
great.===Re: "those of us who enjoy the excitement
of high energy activities really do hope to die "doing what we
love"...What if you love worshiping in a church pew? Do you
need to die doing it??===I don't think trivializing
worshiping on Sundays was needed. Kinda took the topic a direction it
didn't NEED to go...
I'd rather be sure I was around for my wife and think about her, then
selfishly think about myself and my own joys.
As one who, like Eric, actively participates in outdoor activities that involve
some risk, I was as impressed by Eric Hill's energy and excitement for life
as I am sorry for his unfortunate death. I offer my heartfelt condolences to his
family and friends. I know it sounds trite, but those of us who enjoy the
excitement of high energy activities really do hope to die "doing what we
love", and that is what Eric did. As I was also outdoors on Easter Sunday
risking life and limb in Nature's wondrous beauty, I commented to my wife
that I would rather die out there than sitting in a Church pew. And so it is.
RIP Eric Hill, for death is the ultimate bringer of peace and profound
A young person is dead and hockeymom is worried about a worthless, rigged TV
Hockeymom - It sounds like your only concern is about the show and
"spoiler" as you put it. I don't believe you acknowledged the loss
this family is going through. How sad that a T.V. show is more important than a
man's life. He sounds like he lived his life to it's fullest. His next
adventure will be as great if not greater than anything he did here on earth. To
his family. . . stay strong, honor him, and always remember him and what he did
for so many people in his short 32 years here on earth. Prayers to you and all
