Worth another read. I have revisited this blog and thought I would share this. I hope this eases the reader’s heart and mind because if you are reading my blog chances are you have lost someone to suicide. God be with you.
After recently reading my original blog, Suicide and the Bible, a reader kindly wrote,
I was reading your “Suicide and the Bible”..and I just have a question. I’m genuinely curious to know what you think about this. So you’re saying nowhere in the Bible does it say suicide will send you to hell. You did call it murder (of yourself) however, which is sin. We are supposed to ask for forgiveness for all of our sins, so what if someone commits this “murder.” And dies instantly and didn’t get the chance to ask for forgiveness?
Here was my response:
That is a very good – and common – question.
Fortunately, the Gospel makes it perfectly clear that, at the moment we profess our faith in Christ, we are redeemed, purchased by Christ’s blood, and seen, in God’s eyes, as 100% righteous and holy (2 Cor 5:17, 21).
