The church for 2000 years has said suicide is the unpardonable sin! I don’t believe that and I will share with you why. I have seen too many suicides recently and I think people need to see the plan of the devil!
Here is a interesting conundrum, I am seeing a lot of Christian ministers who I guess want to show how Godly they are decide to post to the world, declaring that suicide sends you to hell no matter what. They call it self murder, where is the line drawn? Is it all, or not? Do we really know? Here are my different types of suicide; as you will see are not all the same.
Two types of suicide:
1. Act of Love: Jumping on a hand granade is called suicide but do you really think that will send you to hell? Pushing someone out of the way of a car is the same type of action knowing you will die you lay down your life for another. Seems Jesus commanded us to do just that.
1JN 3:16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. Jesus life could not be taken so he gave up his life, is that not the definition of suicide? Jesus knew that in order for the sacrifice to save us to happen he would have to die. He knew (remember he is God) that no man can take his life, so he laid down his life for all of us, again living the commandment he gave in 1 JN 3:16.
2. Acts of deceptions:
Funny that in the last week I have had a friend from the mainland call me asking about this, a friend of his had killed herself and was worried about her. I asked if she was saved, he said yes, then I asked if she was under the curse of depression, he said yes. I really believe that if a person is depressed and fallen for the lies of the devil, then they are not fully under their right minds. After all their blinded and depressed by the father of lies himself! I am not talking I just lost some money and I am bummed, no I am talking a depression that is so dark so deep that you can not hear Gods voice. You feel that no one cares and you are being told that you are better off dead! Just do it, your a burden, your family will be relieved and your family can move on. I have been there once, I know lots of others, I am here to tell you there is no shame, get help! Talk to Pastors, friends, teachers, Doctors for help.
3. Acts of Rebellion:
I might be wrong but what I consider self murder; if a person maliciously takes their lives in a “I will just show them, boy I bet this will make them upset they will see.” Selfish, narcisistic behaviors, thinking only of them selves. I think that is self murder. I don’t know for sure, but remember they leave friends and family who it would hurt badly if you “Ministers” forget love and decide to hammer them for their loved ones moment of weakness.
