“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
A number of years ago in Albuquerque, New Mexico, there was a man named Earl who decided to take his own life one night. Earl was born in Turkey and raised in a Muslim home, but he rebelled against his father and moved to the United States.
He married a woman and later divorced her as his life was going downhill. He was using a lot of drugs. One night, he went to his bank and withdrew all his money so he could go and buy drugs to end his life with an overdose.
