No, this is kind of a dark topic, but I had to bring it up. Suicide, or self-murder, as Christians call it, is a sin that will send you straight to hell. I was watching Imagine Dragons- I bet my life, and one of the comment chains was that people who commit suicide should burn in hell. But then one of the Christians said "We all go through the same suffering, and suicide is a sin." We don't all go through the SAME suffering. That's like saying we're all the exact same. And some people (atheists, maybe some Christians who don't read the bible) said that we should try to help depressed people and lift them up and a Christian said "No. If they want to kill themselves, let them. They don't deserve to live. Any thoughts on this? And if you are a Christian and are arguing that Suicide isn't a sin, look at Deuteronomy 30:9-20:
"Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life..."
Notice how it says specifically: Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! Which means choose life, and the previous sentence states the choosing of this determines "blessings and curses." Doesn't sound like suicide is a favorable option to me. What are your thoughts on this? Any comments? Any Christians out there?
