The reason I introduce Buddhism instead of Christianity is because I notice that every time that Christianity is mentioned to a suicidal person, it only makes the person's agitation get worse, sometimes even to the point of rage. The way I figure it, why the mention of God infuriates suicidal people so much is because they feel that why is it that God being All-powerful can allow all this suffering and misery. Hell, God is even helpless to save the lives of billions of newborn babies. That's why I feel that for suicidal people that Buddhism would be more acceptable and helpful -- because at its core, Buddhism does not believe in any God at all. A Buddhist priest would say, why even think about something which is unknown and unprovable. To him, it's Unimportant. But what is important is how you manage your emotions and to treat each other with compassion. Every human needs some form of discipline. And ultimately, that discipline does not come from an external source but instead from yourself. So if you don't want to believe in any God, then don't. But at least believe in yourself. That is what Buddhism teaches.
