There is no justification for taking your own life. Only God can take away life.

I don't think it's a sin. It's only when people have no one to go to or no support that they make this decision and it's not an easy one. One should think about how many people are going to be affected by that decision, one should try to reach out for help and not give up.

Good question. As an active Christian in the Austin area, I've head this question a few times. The Bible mentions a few verses about suicide, but I think the most prevalent one to follow is Job 1:21 NIV:"Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised."

From the passage listed above, God seems to be in control of our lives. Afterall, our bodies are his, not ours. We are merely His friends or worshipers. The Bible never directly says"suicide is wrong", however, I believe that we must be wise of our decisions in life. God does wonderful things throughout our lives - regardless of how awful it may seem at the time - and I would hate to see someone miss out on an incredible opportunity.

My personal opinion about suicide is that it is a sin and we should not do it because life is always beautiful no matter how hard it is sometimes.

And we are all sure that taking our own lives is a bad decision.

People who commit suicide might not be thinking clearly. You can't judge them because they're going through so much.

Suicide is a sin. It is the act of taking a life that is not yours to take.

Even Jesus:"My God my God, why has though forsaken me?" I'm sure those who commit suicide feel, and have probably said these same words. When Jesus was on the cross, after much suffering, suffering none of us can begin to understand or judge. After so much suffering even Jesus said,"its is done, I commend my spirit unto thee." And he gave up the ghost.
If it was good enough for Jesus, God, then....

Although i do believe its a sin but i also believe that it is like an illness that you cant overcome on your own , no one should be left to face depression without help or support .

You can't take your own life. You don't have the right.
