Spoilers for _Preacher_.

No, I'm not kidding.

Yeah, I know. Barn door, cows, etc.

Well, that ought to do it.

Sure he did. Jesse specifically tells him that, later on. God deliberately
went out and arranged things so that this particular person would feel
this particular way at this time, then arranged for him to be killed and
meet up with the old Angel of Death at exactly the right moment. He
created the Saint of Killers, albeit not in a
waving-his-hand-and-generating-a-blinding-flash way. The whole thing was
part of his Plan, except maybe the way it ended.
