suicide is NOT an act of murder.
It is a state of mind where you have reached the end and feel unable to continue.
Please answer me this----you're saying my mum commited murder by taking her own life because she could'nt live without her soul mate --my dad who
died a few weeks before her?
What God would judge a heartbroken soul to be a murderer?
He would certainly be one lacking in compassion thats for sure.
Actually I can honestly say that, your mother is in God's memory along with your dad awaiting a resurrection back to this earth at the appointed
It doesn't matter whether she killed herself or died a natural death, the result will be the same, she is covered by the ransom sacrifice of Jesus,
even if she had no faith in it, or him. That is how powerful God's love is towards those that have paid the ultimate price of Adamic sin, that is
And suicide is just like any other major sin, which can be forgiven.
There is no other classification in the bible for suicide but murder.
Stunned friends of a suicide victim may thus take comfort in knowing that “God has shown mercy to those fearing him. For he himself well knows the
formation of us, remembering that we are dust.” (Psalm 103:10-14) Only God can fully understand the role of mental sickness, extreme stress, even
genetic defects, in a “suicidal crisis,” which, the National Observer noted, “is not a lifetime characteristic [but] often a matter only of
minutes or of hours.”—See Ecclesiastes 7:7.
Granted, one who takes his own life deprives himself of the opportunity to repent of his self-murder. But who can say whether one driven to suicide
might have had a change of heart had his fatal attempt failed? Some notorious murderers have, in fact, changed and earned God’s forgiveness during
their lifetime.—2 Kings 21:16; 2 Chronicles 33:12, 13.
Thus, God, having paid “a ransom in exchange for many,” is within his right to extend mercy, even to some self-murderers, by resurrecting them and
giving them the precious opportunity to “repent and turn to God by doing works that befit repentance.”—Matthew 20:28; Acts 26:20.
Bottom line, she will be back!
