‘Appointment with death’ cards shocking for elderly

Religious extremists have been sending cards to elderly people in New Zealand asking them to pick the date they are going to die.

The cards ask recipients to predict the date and time of their death and advise them to get in touch with evangelists to avoid going to hell.

California-based Living Waters was founded by New Zealand evangelist Ray Comfort. Spokeswoman Lisa Law said the cards were a way of making people aware of their mortality and to tell people about Jesus.

However, she did not know who had sent the cards because any individual could order them from the website.

Another religious organisation of the same name but not connected to Comfort, Living Waters New Zealand, said it had not sent the cards.
