What Robin Williams Can Teach Us about Depression

For decades, Robin Williams was the man that had us all–black and white, saved and unsaved, young and old–laughing. He lifted our spirits, all the while, his own spirit was being crushed beneath the weight of depression. What a tragic paradox! No amount of “R.I.P.s” can make his earthly or eternal death peaceful. From Scripture to Mary K. Baxter’s Divine Revelation of Hell, we know Hell and its ever-burning fire are very real. As the Church, we need to be straightforward about the topic of depression.
