I can't agree there.I think it took a lot more faith and courage [to commit suicide] than most people have. I won't condemn the man if that is what happened.
If he suffered from major depression, I don't blame him for his illness or how it affected him. He was just obeying the imperative of the voice in his head. I doubt it, though. He may have been a little depressed, but he didn't come off as despondent or hopeless to me.
If he made a choice made in compos mentis based on a false belief in a heavenly reward, then tome, it was not a courageous choice. Besides being foolish, it would be a selfish choice, however much fear he had to overcome to do the deed. He had a wife and young children, didn't he?
Of course, we still don't know that this was a suicide. That just seems most likely to me given the reference to his troubles being over and the general avoidance of the topic of the cause of his sudden and unexpected death.
If this was a suicide, what are the implications for the power of faith or the value of prayer?
