Pacific Gold's Sing My Welcome Home is out today! Get it here for $7.99.

Because of our careers in Music and ministry we have spent the last twelve years in bars, churches, tour buses, counseling sessions, wild parties, prayer circles, and circles of people doing drugs. It's given us a perspective that's too interesting to keep to ourselves, so we write about it on this Blog, and talk about it on this Podcast. We also have a Store with great music, books and clothing.

The Theology Behind Suicide

If you're like most Christians, you've been brought up to believe that committing suicide is basically buying a one-way ticket straight to Hell. Does this really line up with what the Bible teaches though? Joey doesn't seem to think so, and he'll tell you why in this post.
