I am a christian and I can not find a passage in the bible that says it is , when I have my package ready I am thinking very seriously of doing it, I have nothing to live for so why not? I am a wast of air and Earth resources.

Well I'd say it is a sin because if you commit suicide you'll forever be reliving your suicide in the afterlife some may refer to that as hell. In the physical life its best to fight through these things for a better afterlife some may call it heaven having a good afterlife.

I think any god that would condem you to eternally relive your suicide is an extremely cruel god. I was told by my in laws after my daughter was 10 months old that she needed to be baptised immediately as if she died she would be sent to purgatory. What message does that send out. I also had an uncle that committed suicide and he wasn’t able to be buried in consecrated ground. That was in the late 1950s it was also an unmarked grave.

If that’s having a religion you can keep it.

Daffy I was bought up a christian and would not commit suicide normally but i am so exhausted
with this life, I get no joy out of it, and just can not think of a reason to live, charity work used to be a joy but all the fun has gone out of it, why should I have to live in this hell on earth.

Hi wolram. I was brought up Christian to but saw so much hypocrisy, that I mistrust overly Religious people. I’m sorry you feel so low, I know the feeling only too well,but you have to think of the people that are around you that would be completely broken if you did anything. Please take care :hug:

It is a sin to waste your life. I can't really judge because I don't know you. You may well have nothing to live for. There is always something even if it is just to enjoy TV and food. That's all I live for.

I've been thinking about that side of things this afternoon, not the first time and wont be the last. (unless it is). What keeps me going is I've recently bought a painting prog upgrade and want to dabble with my painting/creative side. Without that I really don't know where I'd be right now. Having a hobby however humble makes all the difference....

Guitar rock is in the doldrums at the moment. It will only take one significant hit to bring it all back. I listen to Pat Metheney......you only need to do that to hear guitar genius. That's guitar jazz I know, different and more tolerant of experimentation - that'd keep costs down?

Many Christians would say that "You shall not kill' also applies to oneself. And it is considered a mortal sin in the Catholic church.

Personally I don't think a loving God would hold it against someone for whom things had become too much. But I know that's not a widely held opinion within church circles.
