“Suicide: Conclusion”

HOST: Andrew Crowe

 

Show Notes:

  • Andrew has spent many weeks discussing the topic of suicide, and this week he uses the Scriptures to conclude this series.

Outline of this episode:

  • The first thing we want to notice are signs that someone may be considering suicide.

  •   What should we do to help them?

    o   Talk to them. Ask them if they are thinking about it.

    o   If you are a teenager, tell your parents and have them talk to this child’s parents.

    o   Help them find help.

  •  Conclusion.

    o   Looking at scripture, I cannot say that in every instance of suicide that someone would go to Hell. Only One Being is able to make that decision.

    o   What about those with mental illnesses? These individuals are not able to think clearly when the decision is made. The illness has clouded their judgment. Again, I cannot say, “Yes” in every instance.

  •   That being said, do not kill yourself thinking that you’ll get an one way ticket to Heaven.

    o   Christ, not Andrew Crowe, any preacher, friend, enemy, relative, and so on will be the judge (2 Cor. 5:10).

    o   The problems we endure in this life are short in nature when compared to eternity. Even long term health problems are short in comparison.

    o   Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Life is far too important to for one to make such a decision.
