Martin Luther on Suicide

Several years ago, Thrivent put together a movie which dramatically portrayed how Martin Luther became a leader of the Reformation movement.  Perhaps the most powerful scene in the movie is this clip in which Luther responds to a teenager's suicide in a radical way.  With depression and suicide in prominent focus after the death of Robin Williams, I invite you to watch this clip and consider the theological messages within it.  Which messages inspire hope within you?  Do you find yourself challenged by, or objecting to, some of these messages?  If so, which ones?  Please share your comments below.
