Paul Zahl Talks Suicide at Liberate

Once again my former professor and friend speaks love and grace into a subject laced with fear and condemnation.  Here’s my highlight of the post:

Life is tragic. Suicide is a serious option. Lots of people have been doing it for a very long time. We just didn’t talk about it much. Now even more people are doing it, and we are, a little, talking about it. It is OK—it is normal—to have the thought. And the moment you know that God forgives you the thought and that He can handle the thought, its impulsive hypnotic grip on you begins to loosen. And you find yourself saying—and more important, feeling—like Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind: “Tomorrow is another day.”

For the rest of the post head over to Liberate.
