  1. I believe that suicide is pure rebellion against Jesus Christ, and this is because you are taking your life, which belongs to Him, and ending it before its time. But if I were to commit suicide, would I go to hell? What do you think?
  2. Juk, you are scaring me with this title. I REALLY hope that thoughts of suicide have not been going through your head [emoji15].

  6. Sjo! Hope this is not in your thinking.
    You are not your own, your are the temple of God, therefore - suicide is a violation against Him.
    I do not know if there is a window for forgiveness between the thought and act and actual death, but I do not see heaven in this situation.

  7. First thing you need to understand is this: If you commit suicide as a believer in Jesus Christ then what has happened is that you have believed a lie(s) so strongly that it led you into a deep despair that you lost all hope. You have been greatly deceived by the enemy. He has succeeded in taking your life.

    Would you go to hell? I can't say for sure but I don't think you would because you were deceived and the Lord is merciful and would know this. I think He would try many times to get you to see the truth before it got to the point of you actually taking your own life. He might even call out one last time as you were dieing.

    It's because I have been very depressed lately and I don't enjoy my life. I gave up just about every everything I enjoyed for God, and it does not seem to be paying off. I expected to get closer to God because I thought my heart was right (not because I gave up all those things, but be a use I thought my heart was right). But now it seems like I have gotten farther away than where I was before. I am certain that the Christian God exists, there is no doubt about that. But I don't know what to do. And I'm on an idiot. I asked God already, no answer. I just know that I'll die before I become an atheist, and I believe that that shows that I truly believe. But I don't know what else to do. It feels like my life was not made to be enjoyed, but that it's useless, or just a burden to others.

    Notice how I used the words, "feel" and "seem". I don't want to blaspheme God by saying that something that is not true is true or vice versa, even unknowingly.
  10. I think it depends on your state of mind as a believer. If you are seriously considering committing suicide as a true believer then there is something wrong in your brain, it is not functioning properly. I don't see it as the same was Judas committing suicide for example because Judas as never a true believer to begin with. As I said....that Christian would be greatly deceived.
  11. Juk, do not even consider this. Rather get help bro.
    Me giving myself up to God has only been a pleasure, I have not at all focussed on the world since I know the prize for eternity is where I will win. No way I'm risking this race to loose and go to hell, that will be silly.
    Focus on heaven.
    You have to talk to your parents about this, please do not put that off.

  12. Well you're in a different place than I am, and I believe that your life is better than mine. Another thing is that I have serious trust issues, and I'd rather not listen to anyone but God. This is because of how humanistic the world is.
  13. I haven't read the other replies, so I don't know if this have been covered, but, SUICIDE IS STATING THAT YOUR PROBLEMS ARE SO GREAT THAT THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE CANNOT FIX THEM, it is absurdity at it's highest level.
    To quote Snoopy the Dog. "there is no problem that cannot be run away from".

  16. Juk.. Do not even think about this.. Do not give into your feelings, which the enemy uses to push you into a corner.. Instead rely on what the Almighty has said and promised us.. Just by a little googling I pulled out so many promises.. These were promises to Israel.. And they went through persecution like no other nation had seen.. Stand on the promises.. I would say meditate on the life of David.. Just see what he went through. And see from where Lord called him and how he ended.. David was running all over for his life! And Lord lifted him to be king of Israel.. Hang on brother.. Don't give into enemy's plots

    Isaiah 41:10
    Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

    Psalm 34:17-20
    When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken.

    Philippians 4:13
    I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

    Exodus 14:14
    The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”

    Jeremiah 29:11
    For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

  17. Hey Juk, if you're really considering suicide, help (by a fellow believer) will be the only way to get better. You're a young guy, and the problems may seem big, but there are alot of things ahead where you will forget all about these feelings.

    Within the past year and a half, I've had one friend end his life, and another was stopped by a police officer right before he pulled the trigger.
    The one who ended his life was a guy who had gone to church all his life, only the Lord knows if he was really saved or not, but from my time growing up with him, I'd say he was.
    Senior year, he decided to end it. I spoke with him the day prior and he seemed fine. The aftermath of it all was a ton. His family was in despair and all his friend, myself included were speechless.

    I wrestled with the thought of if he is in heaven or hell. Looking at it in scripture, we can find arguments for both sides, but nothing definitive. After the grieving was done, I came to the conclusion that if he is in Heaven, great, but if he is in Hell, it does not make Heaven any less. Where he is, is between him and God.

    My other friend was arrested afterwords, but released of the serious charges. He now lives with his mom, and after speaking with him, he realizes how desperate he was. He's glad that the officer tasered him, because if that didn't happen, he wouldn't be here. He grew up in a rough home, the parents were both drinkers, abuse was common, and his parents divorced. His depression was on going, and he never got any help until he was in jail. Now he is doing alot better.

    Proverbs 3:5-6
    Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path.

    Don't be afraid to talk to another, wiser brother in Christ, none of our feelings or predicaments are unique to us. Many people go through this.

  18. How many times do you have to be told Juk. Play some dang video games. Make videos have fun. It is the devil who is guiding you into this place of depression and crap. Get a grip already.

    If I could walk over and hook up one of my 3 play stations I would and we would play.
    Funny thing Juk.............God never told you to stop having fun.......You did.
