No, I'm talking about the poster Bored, the one with the atheist comment.

No one is immune from depression and suicidal thoughts. To say that this man would have still been alive if he were an athiest is a stupid ass assumption.
 
With that being said, I really wish he would have gotten professional help instead of relying solely on prayer. Such a sad end.

He's a pastor that had a congregation to look after. He was a Shepard. Because of what he did many in his church can fall if they are not strong in the word. Yes he will be held accountable. Most would say Sarah waited 90 years to have a baby and with all the taunting she had to go through she still waited and yes she thought that God was not listening to her either. May he rest in peace but yes he will have to be forgiven for taking his own life.

The reality is that there are resources available for people with depression not trying to say that he was diagnosed with depression but he was diagnosed with doubt and once doubt is in man's mind the debil has a full play ground at his disposal. The congregation should RISE UP and continue God's work.

that was a great post, creole!

i mean no disrespect by this but christians are taught that the bible is a complete blueprint for life and seeking answers outside of the blueprint is like tapping into the forbidden occult. 

if all the answers to life's mystery are in the good book, what would compel a christian to seek answers elsewhere? its so sad because i'm sure this leaves believers who suffer from depression stuck between a rock and a hard place especially when the inconsistencies in their blueprint might just be the primary source of their despair.

i believe purpulicious studies some form of psychology. i wish she were here to chime in  because i'd like to know how someone of faith reconciles their faith with the science of the mind.

I think Bored make that comment due to the way several athiest members go overboard with negative comments about christains/God in most topics, regardless of how serious the subject. I hope the topic continues to stay on track due to a man dying .

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

Bored is always making crazy and outlandish statements in regards to religion. It was an uncalled for statement that took the conversation in a direction that it did not need to go.

We are all going to held responsible for our sins. That's why we thank God for the son.
