Yes, I am a heartless Mofo.
But I want to know why such a thing happened.
Rick had fallen away from the strict interpretation of the Word (or so I hear).
Wonder what the son's suicide was all about?
Me too. You're in good company.
Drugs or "sexual identity" issues, or both.
Just an educated guess.
He suffered from a mental illness for years.
I truly understand this as I have a grandson that suffers terribly with depression and mental illness.
Although I do not agree with Rick Warren’s theology, let’s not blame this sad death on that. My understanding is Matthew was a sweet young man that dealt with deep depression.
Greg Laurie wrote about the years of that depression today on Twitter.
Let’s hold judgement and stop thinking the worst.
If he did.
These are dangerous times.
From what I’ve read, he suffrered with depression most of his life, even when he was a boy.
Sounded like they tried about everything to help him.
What you ask is 100% reasonable. I agree with with you. But heartless Mofo you aint. The truth is a beautiful thing.
“Rick had fallen away from the strict interpretation of the Word (or so I hear).”
That would require him to have once had a strict interpretation, something not in evidence.
when one commits suicide it is self evident that a deep dark hopeless state of mind has over taken the person.....specifics are none meaningful
His son had serious mental issues, it’s been reported in other articles...treated by dr’ and clinics and the like...
I have a friend who son died a couple years ago...serious mental issues from about 10 onward. All kinds of Dr.s were sought......not uncommon to do when there are no results favorable.....ended up killling another like himself..and the police killing him in a standoff. He was on the phone with his mother when they took the shot....all he wanted was relief from “his torment”....
Both parents Christian....
I doubt we would fully understand the thoughts of a seriously depressed person.
