Suicide is a grave sin equivalent to murder (Exodus 20:13; 21:23). So this means that you are also supporting murder.

Dr. Kevorkian also committed murder and did jail time for it, he got parole on one condition, to never give suicide advice to anyone again.

God has a great plan for your life. God has created us in His image (Genesis 1:26-27). He created us for a purpose. God has a specific plan in mind for everyone. "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11).

God's plan is for life, not death. The Bible teaches that both physical and spiritual death are the result of our sin and disobedience to God, but eternal life is a gift to those who receive it. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23).

The solution to despair and hopelessness is not suicide, but faith in God. Christ promises that He will give us rest from our problems.

In my English class, we learned and read the book Tuesdays with Morrie. He is famous for giving lectures on the greatest life lessons and inspired everyone. Morrie Schwartz was dying from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and still made a difference in people's lives at 78 years old.
