“Suicide: Some Observations”
HOST: Andrew Crowe
- Last week, we discussed six suicides and Samson and asked a logical question from the texts. This week, we discuss some observations we can make about suicide and the Bible.
Outline of this episode:
Suicide affects more than the victim.
Suicide is not viewed favorably in the Bible. Why?
The Bible teaches that life is a sacred gift from God.
o Acts 16:25
o Psalm 139:14
o No one has the right to take that gift away.
o He cannot even take his own life.
Suicide violates that very concept.
o Eph. 5:28-29
Suicide ignores God’s promise of continued care, when we see no solution.
o 2 Kings 7:3-8
Suicide ignores the greater option for victory over life’s problems, instead of giving in to them.
o Acts 16:25-33
Suicide denies an afterlife.
o Heb. 9:27; 2 Cor. 5:10
o 1 Cor. 15.
