Suicide is the act of one intentionally taking his own life due to depression, anxiety, etc
With the high rate of both the young and old indulging in this act, I decided to write this article to explain and give everyone hope, especially those who are down mentally, physically, and spiritually.
In many cases, suicide can be prevented. Learn the risk factors and warning signs, which include depression, change in personality, self-harm behavior recent life crisis, and conversation about wanting to die. If a family member or friend talks about suicide, take them seriously. Listen without judgment and encourage them to seek professional help.
BIBLICAL ASPECT ON SUICIDE
The Bible views suicide as equal to murder, which is what it is—self-murder. God is the only one who is to decide when and how a person should die.
God is the giver of life. He gives, and He takes away (Job 1:21). Suicide, the taking of one’s own life, is ungodly because it rejects God’s gift of life. No man or woman should presume to take God’s authority upon themselves to end his or her own life.
So, according to the bible, ‘Suicide is as sin’. May God grant His grace to each one who is facing trials today (Psalm 67:1). And may each of us take hope in the promise, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).
