HALEY WRITES: I recently had a relative commit suicide. He was a strong believer. I know he’s in heaven. But how could something so unbearable (the depression that he was experiencing), which led to something even worse (suicide), be a part of God’s plan for him?
This man, despite his faith, despite his wisdom, despite his love for his God, was overcome by hopelessness for his life. Is that a sin? Is depression evil? How could depression and suicide be a part of God’s “good” plan?
