GUEST: Ray Comfort, film producer, EXIT: The Appeal of Suicide
Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him. Psalm 42:5
What do Ernest Hemingway, Cleopatra, Robin Williams, and Vincent Van Gogh all have in common? If you answered, “They all committed suicide,” you would be correct.
This year in America it is likely there will be 40,000 deaths by suicide. It is the second leading cause of death for those aged 10-24.
Depression is the road that leads to suicide. People don’t kill themselves when they are joyful and at peace but rather when there is conflict brewing within and they have no hope that it can be resolved.
Evangelist Ray Comfort and the ministry he leads, Living Waters, have released a documentary film titled, EXIT: The Appeal of Suicide. Ray will join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to discuss overcoming depression and suicide.
