Only God can judge Wogan or any one of us

Published 05/02/2016

REV ET Kirkland has no right to speculate about - never mind pronounce upon - the eternal destiny of the late Terry Wogan (Write Back, February 3).

God - and God alone - who desires that all people be saved (I Tim 2:4) can judge the immortal soul of any human being.

Christians are warned by the Lord Jesus not to judge others, and the Lord adds: "The judgment you give is the judgment you shall receive." (Matt 7:1-3).

So, Rev Kirkland, in pointing out what he thinks is the "silliness" of Fr Brian D'Arcy, should beware of his own folly. At the end of our lives we shall all depend upon God's infinite mercy.
