I do hope you follow up on Bill Evans' Trio recordings (his best, in my opinion), as I think you might enjoy them. It's the kind of music I think of as being at a cocktail party of wealthy/classy folks.

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.

Certainly not, but a Christian must be discerning about false teachers. Doesn’t mean I don’t feel bad for his loss.

>>so what’s 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.
