The evil of suicide is a big deal for young people right now, the second leading cause of death at present for them. It is horrifying to consider and I generally don’t give airtime to evil but this monster hit close to home- our old pastor’s son- and I need to mention it.
The idea of suicide is evil. The thought is evil and at best incredibly selfish. And to get to a place where there is no hope is swallowing about a million lies and false beliefs. Here is why…
Truth: 1. We are all lovingly made by God on purpose.
Truth 2: God made each of us with specific gifts and talents.
Truth 3: Every person God lovingly made is precious and important to the God of the universe and loved.
Truth 4: God cared so much for each and any one of us that He sent us Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for our sins.
Truth 5: God is happy to help anyone with anything any time they humbly ask Him to.
Truth 6: Suicide kills a person God lovingly made and leaves no time to repent and confess and be forgiven. No problem in the world is worth an eternity in hell.
This is the inherent selfishness and evil of suicide. There is good news for those of us alive. We have God to help us with any problem ever. God can help us forgive those who wrong us, even if they don’t ask or don’t care. God cares. God still loves you, the precious child He lovingly made. And God is truth and hope to cut through any lies. The Bible is the best medicine I know. God is the Great Physician. There is always hope. Anything else n is an evil lie. You can choose truth any second of any day and I highly recommend it. You are so very loved.❤
