    I have been thinking about this a lot. I do not believe in GOD but the past week I have been thinking about it a lot and i guess starting to believe there may be a god... maybe not the one in the bible but some sort of god.

    SO do you think if you do do it you will go to hell? If so why are you always thinking about it

    Or if you do not believe in god... DO you think it is a waste of life and you will just fade a way and not even know everything bad in life has ended....

    Maybe i don't make sense.... but if i do tell mewhat you think.

    I don't think we'll ever really know. But I guess the possibility of it discourages suicide... maybe I'm just looking for hope.

    I've thought about this alot myself. I mean what if you kill yourself and theres some punishment in the afterlife for it? I don't know...

    I read this book called "Upon a Pale Horse" its about this guy who takes the job of the grim reaper and he collects souls and weighs there good and bad and decides to send them to heaven or hell. The grim reaper comes across this guy who is killing himself and the guy is an atheist and has no faith in anything and he doesn't love anyone so when the grim reaper reaches for his sould it just dissipates. Scarey thought, huh?

    In my opinion, there IS an afterlife. I'm not sure what it is or whats going to happen or anything, but I'm positive there's something waiting for us after death and life is just a test. If you kill yourself there has to be some penalty in the test. If you're playing a game you don't move up a level after you forfeight.

    I believe there is a "heaven" and a "hell", but I believe it's more of a state of mind. I believe we go through heaven and hell all the time here. More hell than heaven, for most people here. :p

    As far as an actual place or plane, I don't think so. Still, there's a little part of me that wonders if there is. I could be wrong, but I don't believe I am. Heh

    I am not so sure anymore that it is a simple matter of if but when, lots of nights I have spent thinking of what is beyond this world. I have no idea anymore to tell the truth, I can not say that heavon and hell exist, but I firmly believe that any God would be so far beyond us in their ability for compassion that such a place truly would not exist; that a loving God would condemn their children to such a place.

    For some of us life itself is the hell we can never leave, eternity is our damnation for their is no escape. Livening forever whither it be in this world or the next. It seems to me that no matter where we go the pains of this life shall follow.

    Yes, if you commit suicide, you will go to hell.

    It's not all that bad though. If you defeat Satan at chess, he lets you command hell for a day.

    If you suicide again, you get sent to hell2, which is really, really cold. They only serve frozen beer, and it takes a lot of licks to get drunk.

    I don't see why I should go to hell for committing suicide. Whatever happened to hell being a place only for murderers and rapists.

    I don't believe in heaven or hell..... I do strongly believe there is an afterlife but not sure of what or where? (did that make sense?):blink:

    i do not beleive that you will go to hell for commiting suicide. God is not that kinda of god. he is a loving god who accepts our weaknesses and allows for our failings. i do believe in God and I still contemplate suicide.

    I suppose that in the end, it doesn't matter what you THINK, but what IS. I don't think it's worth the risk. I want to agree with the benevolent God theory, and I think that I do, but I'm not quite sure I'm willing to commit to that idea...

    The fact is, no one can be sure wether there is a god or not, it's all speculation. Anyone who says he's sure there is a god is lying to himself. It's more probable there is no a god, though. I mean, where is the proof?
    But then believers would reply "God doesn't need any proof". The discussion is impossible, really, because believers don't want to play the game of discussion fair.

    amazingly enough, i agree that the proof is only for those who keep their eyes wide open and their hearts receptive. at least that is what i beleive. for me, god has answered in amazing ways. when i needed him most, he was there. can i explain what i mean? sure, for instance, i had to quit a job i loved and i needed a job fast. no jobs were to be found. the very next day, a friend called me out of the blue and told me about a position near where i live. i was hired and i still work there. i know it does sound like coincidence. but i was distraught over the situation and asked god to help me out. he did and here i am. i also beleive god led me to this site. i was on the edge ready to take that leap when i just got the feeling to look up the words suicide forum. well to make this short and sweet here i am still, and this site has helped me so much. now, to answer do i go to church, no i do not. do i pray all the time, no. i am not a religious fanatic. i just quietly believe in a higher being. no preachy talk from me, but i will talk about my beliefs from time to time.

    Alright, but why is He so picky then? I'm sure most starving people in Africa have called on God to give them food from time to time. Why doesn't He help them like He helped you?
