Kay Smith Passes by Michael · August 13, 2021 Kay Smith, widow of Calvary Chapel founder Chuck Smith, passed away today. Our condolences go out to the surviving family and those who loved her. Share
Chuck got himself a pretty woman…..
I sometimes wonder how pur relationships will continue in Eternity…. Friends or? ? ?
Condolences and prayers for her family to find comfort in God’s mercies and grace
As someone said- she’s with Chuck, they both have new bodies, and that includes a head of hair for Chuck!
Her caregiver, Lisa Jo Hinojosa Martin, will be in a kind of limbo now and needs prayer to find a place to live, and for strength for her and the family during this time.
Karen, not to say your post is inaccurate, but i didn’t think we got our new bodies immediately upon passing?
Will pray for Lisa
New bodies await the resurrection…
Those that know me know how I “feel” about Chuck Smith, but I was sad when he passed, especially how he struggled with breathing due to his illness. Most likely this is also a sign of my total depravity but, well those tapes dont stop (long story). I think she was united with her husband and much of this life’s griefs have been turned to joy. It seems that eternity will be to some degree us pondering just how much we were restored. I am sorry for her passing and hopeful of her and all of our resurrection’s.

I don’t think anyone really knows, although there are many who claim to know.
I’m too busy in this life to fret and worry about the mechanics of the hereafter.
I do the best I can with what God has given me in this here and now, and hope for the best.
Muff, I’ve often wondered IF we don’t get our new bodies immediately upon passing into the hereafter, what exactly are we? Floating spirits? How do we recognize our loved ones (we do, do we not?)?
As you say, do the best we can now… knowing God will take care of the hereafter, eh?
Paul lays out the timing of the resurrection clearly in 1 Cor. 15:20-27.
Let me be honest here, I don’t believe in a disembodied ‘ethereal’ and ‘immortal soul’.
I believe that body and soul are an integral unit, you (generic you) can’t have one without the other.
I believe that when I die, the only thing that will leave my body is the life-force given to all living creatures by the Almighty.
At some point beyond that, I believe that I will be reassembled (literal resurrection), every atom and electron, whether they became worm food or went out the smokestack of a crematorium, and stand before my Creator to be judged as a ‘living soul’.
Muff, a study of the Bible (God’s gift to us) would contradict what you have chosen to believe…
I do intend to be cremated, no embalming for this old gal 🙂
AND i do believe that the God Who gave me the body i now occupy is perfectly capable of giving me a new (much better) one for Eternity
I agree with Muff. To believe our bodies are not “us” is a form of gnosticism.
Really? Chuck got himself a pretty woman? What i that supposed to mean?
