A Few Additional Thoughts on Suicide


A few days ago, ETPR offered a few thoughts on the topic of ‘suicide.’

The principle thought being that if one commits suicide, one is deceived.  There were other thoughts produced by that discussion, but the one about suicide being committed by the deceived was the Top Topic.

Today, a phone call was received by someone who is an acquaintance who worships in an Eastern idol-worshiping religion.

He was consulted because he was one of the ones involved in the original suicide discussions.

The call began with a question (“Did you call me  a couple of days ago?”) and ended up with an apology of sorts because he ‘wasn’t feeling well’ and couldn’t quite remember what the conversation was about.

“I asked you what your spiritual leader–the one who is no longer with us–said about suicide.”

“What did I say?”

“You said that IF they committed suicide they were possessed by evil spirits.”

“I thought that’s what was talked about.  I’ve had some time to think it over.  He NEVER would have said they were possessed.”

“That’s what you said he said.”

“Yeah, but he NEVER once used the word ‘possessed.’”

“Well, what did he say?”

And this is where MOST of the additional information about an Eastern religion’s thoughts on suicide was imparted.

“He said that if someone commits suicide, then they come back as a ghost in the next life–and that was said as a deterrent. Actually, he once said that IF someone committed suicide, they end up being a VILLAGE OF GHOSTS.”

“A village of ghosts?  I’m not sure I understand.”

“No one wants to come back as a disembodied ghost.  There’s all sorts of rituals for ridding temples of ghosts: exorcism rituals.”

“But there’s no such thing as ghosts.”

“Sez you!  The rituals mostly involve holy men, string and milk.”


“Yeah, they put the string (unbroken) COMPLETELY around the area they think the ghosts are.  The string first has to be dipped in milk and then blessed by the holy men.”


“Yeah, and if a person has a ghost then they put the string around their neck!  I’ve watched a couple of times. There was this chick who was supposed to be bothered by an army of ghosts!  They dipped the string in milk, blessed it over and over and then wrapped it around her neck.”

“What happened to her?”

“Oh, she got better.  At least I think she did.”

“So, basically, your group believes if you commit suicide you become a ghost in the next life? And a ghost is sort of an evil spirit?”

“It doesn’t sound as bad as it is!”

Some additional chitchat was engaged in over the subjects of holy water, salt and what is necessary to make sure that no evil spirits get into where you live.

BUT, though that might all make a good piece some day, today is NOT that day.

HAS the reader had any additional time to spend on the subject of what he believes about suicide?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE 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?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“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
