Recorded from Chestnut Mountain Church, the Burning Questions Podcast is designed to answer questions submitted by students that they have been wondering about or longing for an answer to. The Burning Questions Podcast is hosted by Jared Cagle, a pastor at Chestnut Mountain Church, and features guests to help us answer students’ burning questions. If you have a burning question that you have been longing for an answer to, DM us on our Instagram @cmcstudents_.
In this episode, we welcome special guest, Sam Bowman, to answer our fourth burning question: "If you commit suicide, are you going to hell?" To answer this question, Sam is able to lean into his own battle of depression and deep struggles with suicidal thoughts. To the one who has attempted suicide or is considering suicide, in Sam's words, 'doubt your doubts.' Listen to this full episode as we answer this burning question submitted by a student about this war on suicide.
