Bittersweet,
You wrote,[...agree with you {not}...you are immmature...how can you judge unless you walk a mile in our shoes...]
After reading the post(s) that you responded to by titeistguy,it appears to me that he/she was in psychotic depression for he/she wrote that [...not for...I would have killed myself...].
Then he/she goes on to write that it was a [spiritual] transformation , to use my words , that enabled he/she to Overcome depression that was suicidal. Now he/she hasn't written all the details of such deliverance from suicide, but I have a deep conviction, based on what he/she has written that it was real to him/her.
Now in his/her description of his/her jesus refusing a drug in His agony, I believe that it would take a deep , mature, understanding to comprehend the significance of the refusal. I am not a member of Christiandom but I have a Christian friend that told me the same thing years ago, and he was a very spiritually mature
person and he told me that the drug , probably, was a narcotic mixed in a solution of, perhaps, alchohol. Opium was a common pain reliever in those days, 2000 years ago, in that area of the world(Jerusalem) and was given to those in the latter stages of crucifiction. Now the significance of this is way beyond the PB board, and , perhaps, could belong on the faith board.
Lou
