I recently got rocked by someone who reached out to me through this website asking me this one little question…..

is suicide forgiven?

I followed up directly to this reader via email (the only means that I had to contact them), but never heard back. So I don’t know how my response may or may not have affected any decisions on their part. Personally, this question has haunted me ever since.

depressionI do know that suicide is something that is not specifically forbidden by the Scriptures. However, I also know that it is not something that aligns with what I believe about how people should respect life. Thoughts of suicide typically stem from extreme depression, and I know that God has used many people who live with depression.

I feel good about the answer that I gave this reader. But what I want to know from you is…

How would you respond to this question?

If someone reached out to you asking questions about whether someone who commits suicide will still go to Heaven or not, then how would you respond?

Let’s talk about this…

I think that this is the type of conversation that more Christians should be prepared for. And my gut tells me that many Christians don’t have solid answers for this one. So please share your answers, thoughts, and questions….
