The founder and presiding Bishop of the Lighthouse Group of Churches (UD-OLGC), Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, has said his sonâ€™s death makes it look â€œas if there is no Godâ€ and â€œas if God is angry with me over something.â€
â€œLook at me standing here; my son is dead: as if I donâ€™t pray, as if thereâ€™s no God, as if God is angry with me for somethingâ€¦â€ he said at an Easter Sunday church service.
He, however, expressed confidence based on 1 Corinthians 15:22 that he would see his son again one day.
1 Corinthians 15: 22 says: â€œFor as in Adam all men die, even so in Christ shall all be made aliveâ€.
Using the scriptures, Bishop Heward-Mills told the congregation: â€œSo, all our brethren who are gone, we are going to see them again and I believe Iâ€™m going to see my son again, heâ€™s going to be made alive again one dayâ€.
Dr David Heward-Mills, the first son of Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, died in the United States after a short illness during the Easter holidays.
He was 31.
David Heward-Mills was a Research Physician at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Galveston.
