    I have lived a long time on this earth and I cannot think of a single instance when I would have...

    wished to raise the dead.  Why would anyone want to do this?

    I can answer this. The reason why people want to raise the dead comes from being seperated from them. This causes great amounts of sadness in a person and they wish for them to be back with them. Sometimes people just can't let go. The pain is very deep when you lose someone you care about and sometimes because of that it takes time to heal. The sadness though can drive a person mad, to do things they normally would not.

    Others would want to do it to simply prove they can. Then you have those who want to play god.
    The military becasue they want super soldiers.

    MABEY WHEN A PESON WISHES THEY COULD RAISE THE DEAD THEY ARE GOING THROUGH SOME TYPE OF STAGE OF SADNESS OR MISSING THE PERSON WHO PASSED SO BAD THE FEEL IT WOULDBE BETTER FOR THEM TO BE ALIVE THAN DEAD , OR MABEY THEY FEEL THAT THAT PERSON DIDN'T DESERVE TO PASS AWAY ,JUST TELL THEM THAT 2 THINGS ARE GARANTEED DEATH AND OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

    I am assuming the readers of this response are familar with my hub ...

    It is not what I "wished" for, it was what needed to be done. In this case, his wife and children needed him on earth more than he needed to be in heaven. I spent a sold half hour in discussion with the person I refer to as "Wolf" in my hub, disucssing whether or not this was something that should be done.

    In this case, we did it simply because it was the right thing to do. 

    I've lived a long time on this earth as well, I only know five or so people who have been raised from the dead of the dozens or more that I know who have died.

    We still discuss among ourselves, including Lonnie and his wife if this was the "right" thing to do.  In this case, I'm sure it was.

    The mistake we often make is putting the "and everybody lived happily ever after" at the end of these stories.   That's not accurate.  In some ways, life is harder than it was before.
