On my way home from work today I heard the news of the apparent suicide of Robin Williams. I briefly looked on Facebook and saw many of the sad posts mourning the loss of Robin Williams. Certainly as an actor, he will be missed. He was a man of many talents and was able to bring his audiences to tears of joy, and sometimes tears of sadness too. What saddens me more though is, if the reports are true, that he succumbed to suicide - which is a total lack of faith, even a rejection of faith. Only God can judge what the state of Mr. Williams soul was at the point of death - so I will not presume to judge his eternal state, but it saddens me to hear about someone who felt his or her problems were bigger than God could handle.
My prayers go out to William's family, and I do pray for his soul - may God have mercy on him.
