Season 1, Episode 20
For Thursday, July 16, 2015
HOST: Andrew Crowe
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.
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.
