Question of the day: suicide.
While I understand that God is the final Judge of all people, I’m interested to know what opinions and beliefs others have on matters… and this is one of those matters.
I know people who have attempted suicide and I know people who have succeeded in suicide. And I’ve heard both sides to this issue – but never with a convincing “argument” (if you will). I’ve been asked on many occasions what my opinion was about this matter, so I’m opening it up for discussion.
Here’s the question…
Can someone commit suicide and still go to Heaven? Or does the act of committing suicide result in losing all hope for forgiveness?
I have heard the argument that some say suicide shows such strong rebellion which usurps God’s position as the “Giver and Taker of life.” I have heard people say that suicide is murder of the self. I have been told that suicide shows a lack of faith in God, cutting short the divine plan of the Almighty.
So what are your thoughts? Do you have any Scripture to support your opinion?
