Would you like to merge this question into it? MERGE already exists as an alternate of this question. Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it? MERGE exists and is an alternate of. I remember a response given by Jesus in the New Testament.
Jesus taught that the only unforgivable sin was blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.
So if you are a Christian who believes… in his heart not his head that Jesus was the Son of God, He was crucified for our sins new covenantdied and rose again then suicide is not blasphemy of the Holy Spirit and is forgivable by God. Unless the act is a direct challenge to God, or as spite to God and His Trinity.
Most religions teach that suicide by someone with a mental illness, such as depression, is not considered a sin. It is considered an act that was caused by the illness and was beyond their control. The answer rests in your faith and if you believe your God would punish someone who was not responsible for their actions or welcome them Home.
Mental illness can be a consequence of social morales. It is estimated that about one third of all suicides in teens are the result of our cultural negativism towards homosexuality. Freud suggested that repressed desires result in neurotic manifestations.
It is axiomatic that all repressed desires will manifest themselves in a pathological manner. Destructive drives can only be externalized or internalized, or sometimes a combination. Ever wonder about all the ways people kill themselves slowly; smoking, starving, overeating, taking drugs?
When repressed desires are brought forth, they must be recognized in order to be healed. That means you have to deal with them, accept them and embrace them as a part of you, and know that many others have the same desires, To be sure, mental illness can be a product of an apparent physiological defect resulting in insufficient or excessive production of various hormones; transmitters for neurons to process data, operate cellular functions in normal sequences.
Logic should tell one that the only people who don't have to worry about being admitted to Providence are the young victimized by self hating individuals and the organized zealots of hatred that preach against Gods' most unique creations.
Logic should tell you that the answer to your question is affirmative: Yes, God is the creator, and his creations are not subject to the judgment of mortals.
No human could know the design or purpose of such activity, but Providence surely has such matters as part of the scheme of life.
Providences judgments are clearly upon those who choose, and who choose to do evil, to preach hate, to make judgments outside of their right to do so and against Gods' purpose. I think this is what the Greeks call Hubris.
Is there a biblical answer Do you think the Lords knowledge could be held in your hand in a single book? Say a prayer for the soul your concerned about and know you too have a purpose in knowing such a soul.
Simply put the scriptures make no mention of suicide. One of the commandments is 'Thou shalt not commit murder'. In actual translation it means you shall not commit premeditated murder. In any moral, or immoral, act there are two important factors to be taken into consideration: Freedom Two 8 year olds throw stones at a defenceless animal; one does it simply because he wants to, whilst the other is threatened with harm by a 16 year old if he does not throw the stones.
The one who is threatened has less freedom and so is less culpable. Pressure can come from inside as well as outside. A person on drugs has less freedom than one who is drug free and one who has a psychotic disorder has less freedom than one who does not.
Understanding Two people throw stones at a defenceless animal: It is obvious that the 16 year old has more understanding of the situation and is therefore more culpable.
However, if the 16 year old has severe mental problems then he will be less culpable than the 8 year old. It is also important to remember that understanding and morality are strongly influenced by upbringing and social environment.
A child who is raised to believe that dishonesty is acceptable will be less culpable than one who has been taught to value truthfulness.
Conclusion Bearing these things in mind, it could be argued that a person who habitually considers suicide is not in a healthy emotional state because the instinct of self-preservation is one of the most basic that humans possess.
A depressed emotional state reduces a person's freedom and thus their culpability.
If mental illness is added to the scenario, then the level of responsibility and thus freedom is diminished even further.Anita, you forget Pres.
Obama inherited much of the mess that the Bushes left behind. Most don’t want to remember. They would rather hang onto the lie that the President is a Muslim when every Sunday he and his family are at a Church not a mosque.
