Guess he decided to go talk to God on his own esteem.

He may have been a Pastor however he was still an imperfect man.

Preach!

I just wrote something along these lines on Facebook. I get so sick of hearing ppl going through their troubles and someone will merely respond "well, I'll pray for you".

Nooooo, that's not how it works. Prayer without action/effort is useless.

When someone is in need...
1. Prayer for them should be automatic--the fact that you're praying doesn't even have to be disclosed.

2. "What can I do to help?" Should be your first response.

Ppl will harp on the fact that they're praying for you as a mere way to release themselves of any further obligation to assist.

So yeah, the same goes when you're helping yourself. Praying for something is grand, but God also wants to you take action and the steps towards improvement.

This is sad. I know what it feels like to feel spiritually lonely. I really wish he sought help.

in some situations prayer is all you can do for someone else

meaning there is absolutely nothing on earth you can do for them besides that

This is very sad.
However why would they use a sermon from three years ago to say that it was his reasoning for taking his own life? smh
If he wasn't hearing from God for the past three years, I hope he wasn't preaching to the congregation. Why would you preach a sermon that does not come from God?
Also those quotes from the sermon prove nothing. Pastors always discuss a time in their life when they were struggling with depression , fornication, drugs etc. It's so that people can know that whatever their situation is they can overcome it. 
Those quotes don't even show that he was discussing himself..
I can quickly paste a sermon where a pastor goes " Lord I'm trying to do (blank) but ..it's like your not using me". < they are speaking from the persons point of view.. Idk if that makes sense..
Anyways he was clearly going through something ... And he should have received some help.
Prayers to his family and congregation!

We do not need to see this in order not to believe. I read the bible of course.
 
Overall, this man needed help and when will people realize mental illness is freaking real?!!!

All of this!!!!!!!! Clap

Not sure if that is the real reason he ended his life.. That's making assumptions.. Dude must have been suffering from deep depression and avoided treatment..

This is always sad to hear.  People who commit suicide are just trying to end the pain for good.   He wasn't seeing any hope in the future.

And saying atheists shouldn't see this is very ironic.  A pastor committing suicide only has an affect on other Christians.   Believers struggle with their belief when things like this happen.  We are completely NOT affected because we see him as a man in pain.  The comment is very telling.
