Romans 8:31-35, 37-39 – Tough Questions of Faith: Can Suicide Prevent God’s Love?
There are common questions that people ask God or want to ask God but are too afraid. At Beautiful Savior, we believe that God doesn’t get angry at us for asking questions, as if questions are somehow a sign that faith is lacking. Instead, the courage and willingness to ask questions are themselves building blocks of stronger faith. Faith is like a muscle; it must be stretched and challenged in order to remain healthy and grow. The following is a list of just a few of those many questions we may want to ask God. As you read these questions, ask yourself who you know that needs to hear a topic addressed and how you might invite that person to come to worship.
We’ve been taught that suicide is an unforgivable sin. Biblically speaking, though, it is not unforgivable. However, it is clearly unadvisable. God has a great plan for each and every one of our lives. Rather than resort to self-murder, today we ponder how we might positively resort to self-rebuilding.
