Bible and Suicide
Suicide is mostly contemplated
in distress, hardship, anxiety. But, no doubt, this hardship may also
be as 'the trying' of Christ on your person - if so, you,
no doubt, will know it: for he will let you know it.
MAT 10: 21 And the
brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the
child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause
them to be put to death.
MAT 10: 22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's
sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Enduring
meaning not turning away from Christ, not turning to evil, give-in to
Satan, but stay in God's house forever - with his commandments.
Indeed, the Gospel does not
prohibit suicide, it forbids 'Murder'. You can not murder your self,
but only 'Kill' your self. Lukewarm Christian opinion on the
matter does not count - but only Christ's... and he
never mentioned it.
We now must:
Define Murder: the unauthorized killing of a creature, men or beast ( a creature with a soul (blood), not plants ).
Define Killing: the putting to death of a living creature:
chickens, beef, pork, men in self-defense without intent to kill, save
if we absolutely have no choice, as that would still not be murder.
Define Authorized Killing:
killing authorized by God. We can kill all beast for our need or our
protection, but not murder them (kill them for the sake of killing),
due to the commandment "Thou shalt do no murder".
Define Unauthorized Killing: no killing animals
for the sake of a shoot and leaving them to rot, but eat them or give
to somebody to eat or use their fur for our need for else this would be
Now if we feel life is too
heavy on us and we want to end it then, if we kill our selves,
our live belonging to us, we did not commit murder as that is not
possible; 'self-killing' is not murder and God, like with masturbation,
did not prohibit it. And did we then ' persevere unto the
end '? We actually did, for we did not turn from God and the
truth, but remained in our faith and did not turn to Satan to solve our
problems, but we choose death. So we persevered unto the
end, though we called the end. It would, indeed, be a pity if you
are not baptized to the remission of your sins - and you can then
only hope for his mercy on the day of judgment.
Love your neighbour like you love your self.
Would you like to suffer in pain and misery, or would you prefer death?
Did Christ prohibit assisted-killing, where the person, capable of
making a choice, has chosen for assisted-killing? Surely, where the
person cannot make such a choice, due to mental or physical inability,
a Christian may make the choice for them, showing mercy on the
sufferer - in the event the sufferer would have
Chosen for this anyway, were he capable.
Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It
the ages Catholics
and other Nicolaitans tried to defy the above quotation by Jesus,
and murdering many, deceiving and misleading many more, but they have
and shall not prevail against 'His Church'.
