"Baptized Into His Death"

For citizens of Heaven, adversity is a loving act of God. Worldliness->adversity->despondency->repentence Suicide is the ultimate rebellion - the rufusal to repent - and is not forgivable. In softening the true message of Chrisitanity (the cross), the ecumenical movement has excised the most important thing. It is possible to love Christ (the Teacher) without being saved. We're only passing through. Incurable illness makes us homesick.
