“Suicide: Some Observations”

HOST: Andrew Crowe


Show Notes:

  • 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.
