I believe that this article relates to our class discussion of the immaterial man. In the material sense, Tooley seemed to have it all. But, what may have been lacking is a focus of the immaterial side of existence. The college expierence focuses so much on the material: grades, social life, future plans, etc. But there little to none energy spent on the immaterial in most college expirences. During a time of life where the person needs to drawing closer to Christ (which is the true intention of Spirituality), many times he is pulling away.
Could this be way so many of our peers look to end their lives, when from the worlds point of view they possess it all? Are they lacking the security that only comes when one embraces the immaterial part of man, the part that connects to God and to His strength and salvation?
