Sunday School: Christian Ethics (Pt. 14: Suicide)

February 16, 2020 Speaker: John Bell Series: Sunday School: Christian Ethics

Passage: 1 Peter 3:13–4:19

A. THE BIBLE’S TEACHING ABOUT MURDER ALSO PROHIBITS SUICIDE.

B. SCRIPTURE NEVER VIEWS SUICIDE POSITIVELY.

The narrative examples of suicide in the Bible show that it is often the last act of despair of a person who has turned against God and his purposes. For example:

  1. Saul
  2. Ahithophel
  3. Judas.
  4. Samson’s Death Should Not Be Considered Suicide.

C. THE GOAL OF SATAN IS TO DESTROY HUMAN BEINGS MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD.

D. SUICIDE INJURES OTHER PEOPLE DEEPLY.

E. CAN PEOPLE WHO COMMIT SUICIDE BE FORGIVEN?

1. Yes, Certainly, If They Were Believers in Christ.

2. Roman Catholic Teaching.

F. HOW TO RESPOND IF SOMEONE ASKS, “IF I COMMIT SUICIDE, WILL I GO TO HEAVEN?”
