Suicide prevention!

A. Statistic:

1. In 2018 there were 48344 suicide death in America!

    In 2017 there were 47173 suicide death in America!

2. America spent 93.5 billion healing suicide injury a year!

3. Unfortunately, the US has the highest suicide rate of any other wealthy nation;

    it is currently the 10th leading cause of death.

    It is also the 2nd leading cause of death among American teenagers aged 15-19.

4. Extreme poverty is leading cause in Africa!  Otherwise aggravation is leading cause!

B. Can a Christian commits suicide?

1. Google has this answer: Christians can commit suicide!

2. Quoted Ro.8:38-39 Christians committed suicide can go to heaven!

3. There is this message from Christianity Today:

    Sadly suicide occurs among Christians at essentially the same rate!

4. I live to see this day!  Christians and non-Christians their behavior is essentially the same!

5. Christianity Today magazine is the most circulated publication among Christianity!

6. I know for sure not one Christianity people believe Jesus!

7. This is why their way of life is essentially same as non-believers!

C. Church of Christ people never commit suicide!

    We know and practice what Bible says!

1. Take heed unto yourselves, and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit hath made you bishops,

    to feed the church of Christ which he purchased with his own blood. Ac.20:28

*** We will not and cannot kill what belong to God!

2. Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? 1Cor.3:16

*** Our bodies are God’s temple!

3. If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him;

    for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple. 1Cor.3:17

***This instruction alone is enough to prevent suicide!

4. The perfect suicide prevention is believed Jesus in the churches of Christ!

5. If all American believe Jesus in the church of Christ 2018 alone 48344 American lives saved!

    America would reduce national debt by 93.5 billion!

6. All who know what kinds of people in church of Christ will agree with this!

D. Apostle Paul showed us why we must live as long as possible!

1. According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed,

    but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body,

    whether it be by life, or by death. Phil.1:20

2. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Phil.1:21

3. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labor: yet that I shall choose I know not. Phil.1:22

4. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ;

    which is far better: Phil.1:23

5. Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. Phil.1:24

6. And having this confidence,

    I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith. Phil.1:25

E. Conclusion: Back to their missed-quoted Romans 8:38-39

1. As recorded: For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,

    neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else

    in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.   

*** Their idea is in the nothing, including suicide, can separate people from the love of God!

2. They neglected the following phrase: That is in Christ Jesus our Lord!

***This proves people in church of Christ!  Do not commit suicide!

3. One more time may I remind you!  One is in Christ means one is in church of Christ!

    One’s life is hidden with Christ in God! Col.3:3

4. Let us read Ro.8:37 also!

    No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Christ who loved us. Ro.8:37

5. Yes, through Christ we are more than conquerors in all these things!

6. In all these things that may push us toward committing suicide we are more than conquerors!

7. In church of Christ nothing can make us to commit suicide!

May the Lord bless you and keep you always!  Preach this April 4, 2021.
