Christians aren't exempt from mental illness. That old school way of thinking is what has alot of christians putting on a front and hiding their depression, mental illnesses because they feel that it is a reflection on their faith and relationship with God. I heard a preacher say that if you have God you should never be sad because you have the joy of the Lord. That preacher probably felt like he couldn't ask for help because he would lose the respect of his congregation and that they would question his connection with God. He was suffering. This church mentality is really screwing people up and destroying lives. Having God does not make you less human than anyone else and you will deal with things including mental issues, physical issues, financial issues just like everybody else. God gives you the strength to endure and the common sense to know when to seek help. Going to church and praying is not enough. That sense of pride is hurting christians in the long run

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.

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


Ummm God said thou shall not kill...He won't be talking to God anytime soon unless he was forgiven.

I agree. The church has made God more human and tries to make us less human, at the same time makes us feel guilty of showing any kind of humanity. Bass akwards if you ask me.

This is sad and I'm not judging this brotha but Even those who go to hell will be judged. 
The Great White Throne Judgment is the judgment of the dead.

So y'all think that committing suicide is a one way ticket to hell? I used to think this but my thoughts on it have changed.

I've gone through depression and I know some churches believe it to be a spirit and I felt guilty for my depression as if it were my fault for not being faithful enough.

I no longer feel that way, I now know it's an illness. 
Christians should follow the teaching of Christ and not all the opinions of the religion.
