“What about Suicide?”

“Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.”
Mark 3:28-29 NIV

The only unpardonable sin (is refusing to let God pardon you).

Suicide is contemplated when:
> (Helpless in current situation)
> (Hopeless about the future)
> (Worried & Depressed)
> (Feelings of Worthlessness)
> (Plagued with Guilt)
> (Overwhelmed by Sin)

God’s Answer to Each:
> (A very present help—Ps. 46:1)
> (Jesus came to give life—John 10:10)
> (Don’t worry, pray—Phil. 4:6-7)
> (Made by God and for God—Eph. 1:5)
> (God forgives—1 John 1:9)
> (Jesus died for all sin—Rom. 5:8-9)
