Dealing with Suicide (Includes Personal Testimonies)
August 16, 2014 Chris Teien
It is heart breaking to find out that someone you know has chosen to take their own life. Not only is suicide tragic but it can also be contagious. Often there are no words we can share to answer the questions of “why and what if?” Recently the news has reported actors, pastors, adults and kids that have ended their own lives. And some people around us are still living on the outside but dying on the inside. We read that some people in the Bible committed suicide for various reasons and some people greatly used of God were plagued with depression. Choosing to live in hard times and through painful experiences can cause us to trust in God even more. Choosing to keep living can result in wonderful experiences you never imagined for you and those around you. Learn why some people try to self destruct and be encouraged to find ways and resources to try to help them. - Pastor Chris Teien
