    Well, I agree, thus the point being that suicide need not prohibit people from entering God's presence.

    Blessings,

    If we die with unconfessed sin, is this held against us? I believe when we turn to the Lord, future sins are forgiven, as well as past and present ones. Forgiveness involves confessing our sins, note that 1 John 1:9 does not say "if we confess each sin". I can't remember each sin I have committed, especially sins hidden from me. So sins plural, and God is faithful and just to forgive us our sins (plural again, including future sins), and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    So I believe and hope your brother Jerry, in turning to Christ, confessed his sins in confessing that he was a sinner, and then we may know that God set out to cleanse him from all unrighteousness.

    Blessing and grace and peace,
    Lee
    Thanks, Lee.

    I am late responding because I have been without any online access for days due to malfunction of local telephone and DSL service.

    Dad,
    Something about Cat Stevens always reminded me of Jerry. I see similarities in their mannerisms and their outlook on life. Jerry always gave everyone such big hugs and he was one of the most sincere people I have ever known. This song reminded me of Jerry. He lived a good life and he did so much to try and bring joy to the lives of others.
