As to Calvinist vs Arminian. I am Arminian. Wesleyan Arminian at that. I do accept Calvinist as grow believers. I also realize that such extreme application of eternal security is NOT typical of the actual, historic position of those who espouse it.
As for suicide, its a tough one. On the one hand it is murder. On the other there is the likelihood of mental illness and in such cases the individual may not be sufficiently stable enough to be morally responsible for their actions. However it is the height of stupidity to boldly proclaim as much to a congregation — especially when someone might act on it. That’s horribly tragic.

it was a custom to demonstrate love, humility, friendliness to wash another’s feet in Jesus time. The churches that continue to have foot washings consider it a Christ-like act among their brothers (and the women do so separately). This ritual is not practiced often among any Pentecostals or others. But then most Pentecostals are not as separate and different as they were 50 years ago. They have merged more into the practices of the mainstream Protestants such as Baptists, Methodists, etc., taking much of the demonstration of emotion out of their services (and daily lives so far as religious actions are involved) much like the USA itself has driven the religions of the founding fathers out and replaced them with……..
