As for the rest, well said! Except I don't think "we" failed anyone who commits suicide, slow or fast -- that person failed him/herself AND God, and may God have mercy on his/her soul.
Thanks for the Prayers, May God bless you and your family.
Certainly not, but a Christian must be discerning about false teachers. Doesn’t mean I don’t feel bad for his loss.
>>so whats going on when a child of God loses that hope?
No one can truly know, but I’d like to think that it’s part of God’s plan for our journey. I think there is a lesson in everything, both for the person experiencing it and for those who observe.
I know that going through hellish experiences gives a person compassion and understanding for others who are in difficulty. It also helps a person focus on what’s important and what’s not. Maybe a person who is driven to suicide has a last conscious moment of understanding and repentance, forgiveness for others and forgiveness from God, before his final breath. I pray that is true.
