Westerhuis' church deplores suicide, euthanasia, death penalty

Okay, these murders are a head-scratcher.
A service for Scott Westerhuis is planned for 9 a.m. Saturday at the First Reformed Church in Platte. A private service is planned for Nicole Westerhuis. [Yankton Press & Dakotan]
The Reformed Church in America IS a little preoccupied with death.
A decision to take one's own life thus appears to be a denial that one belongs to God./ A second conviction is that God does not abandon people in times of suffering...A decision to end one's life would appear to be a cessation of that trust...If Christians are to be involved in debating laws regulating assisted suicide, it will be out of a concern for the health and well-being of society.
The Westerhuis family was apparently very active in their church.

Weird, huh? Maybe Nicole Westerhuis' name came up on that Ashley Madison list.
