God has given us life and asks us to use it in serving him (John 10:10; Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). We are to honour God with our body (1 Cor 6:20), so it would be wrong to destroy the gift God has given us.
The Bible records seven suicides:
|Saul||1 Samuel 31:4|
|Saul’s armor-bearer||1 Samuel 31:5|
|Ahithophel||2 Samuel 17:23|
|Zimri||1 Kings 16:15-20|
In Samson’s case, we know he will be in God’s kingdom (Heb 11:32) — his suicide was part of his attempt to defeat the Philistines.
If anyone is feeling suicidal, please read Psalm 33:18-22 and pray for God’s strength. Then talk to someone about it and seek professional help:
