Suicide in the Bible

suicide

There are several interesting bits of information to be had by studying what is written in the Bible on the topic of “suicide.”

Following are a few such facts.

1- In the time in which we live, there are many attempts–particularly by those who claim to be Christians–to portray the taking of one’s life as a behavior which is somehow okay–or which is not condemned–in God’s Word.  One of these manufactured stories went to far as to claim that there were suicides in the Bible which were PRAISED by God.

2- One of the “arguments” made by such wolves is that “even a careful reader will search in vain for any explicit prohibition of self-killing in the Bible.” This is NOT true–as anyone who studies the Bible will quickly attest. There is MORE than one rendering of Exodus 20:13 in God’s Word.  What does Exodus 20:13 say?

“Thou shalt not kill.”

Seems to be very clear.

Perhaps this prohibition is not the type of legal language required by the wolves. But the sentence is VERY clear: man should not kill–either another man or himself.

3- There are relatively few instances (seven) of suicide presented in the Bible.  A study of these cases prompts a question to asked.

“Is someone who kills himself possessed by an evil entity?”

Of the seven instances, the Bible EXPLICITLY confirms (six times in 1SAMUEL!) that King Saul was troubled by an “evil spirit SENT BY GOD.”

“But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.”
–1SAMUEL 16:14

“And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.”
–1SAMUEL 16:23

The Bible also confirms that Judas was possessed by Satan himself.

“Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.”
–Luke 22:3

“Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.”
–John 13:26-27

One writer went to far as to offer Judas’s suicide “could be interpreted as an act of atonement.”

However, the words of Jesus Himself on the matter carry more weight than a hundred writings by the children of disobedience.

“The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.”
–Matthew 26:24

In fact, Jesus Himself referred to Judas as the “son of perdition.” Not a very accurate description of one who is right with God.

A third instance of a person who committed suicide associated with an evil spirit is Abimelech.

“Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech: That the cruelty done to the threescore and ten sons of Jerubbaal might come, and their blood be laid upon Abimelech their brother, which slew them; and upon the men of Shechem, which aided him in the killing of his brethren.”
–Judges 9:23

So, in three of seven instances of the biblical accounts of suicide, God’s Word EXPLICITLY mentions an “evil spirit” (or, in the case of Judas, Satan himself) interacting with the one who later commits suicide.

On the other cases, the Bible is silent about the involvement of an evil spirit.

Perhaps only in the case of Sampson is there some doubt.

But not much.

Sampson asked God to strengthen him, not for the glory which he might attain for God, but so that Sampson might avenge himself.

“And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.”
–Judges 16:28

What does God’s Word say to all those who thirst for vengeance?

“To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.”
–Deuteronomy 32:35

“Say not, I will do so to him as he hath done to me: I will render to the man according to his work.”
–Proverbs 24:29

“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.”
–Romans 12:19

(At other times, when Sampson displayed great strength, the Bible says that ” the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him [Sampson].”

But about that time when Sampson killed himself, the Bible is silent on this matter.)

These are just a few of the bits and pieces gleaned from studying God’s Word on the subject of “suicide.

NOW, history records a plethora who, for one reason or another, have faked their own death.  More than a few of these charades involved the fake taking of one’s own life.

It is likely this circumstance continues today with what are announced as “suicides“–particularly those of the rich and/or celebrated–are only manufactured events.

One might reasonably ask, “Is an interaction with an evil spirit present for those who FAKE their own deaths?

No doubt there are some readers interested enough in the topic to check for themselves.

HAS the reader ever been upset or sad:?

HAS the reader ever contemplated killing himself?

DOES the reader believe that a person takes his own life because he is sad?

DOES the reader believe that a person kills himself because he is upset over something?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
