The Word

Mat 5. 39 – 42

If your friend or worse, family member, committed suicide

you’ve probably tried to put a good construct on this unnatural act. That’s understandable. You hope they weren’t responsible before God, and went to heaven. May I ask you to keep your “reasoning” to yourself? Suicide may become more and more accepted as “normal” as this sin-cursed-world winds down. (Some society may even suggest it your “patriotic duty”.) Some person strongly tempted to commit suicide, may hear your logic (perhaps flawed logic), think there is hope, take his own life and go to hell. Your publicized hope for “x” may actually make it easier for a new suicide to occur. Think About It!

It is no more right to take your life than to take some other man’s life.
