We are going to discuss a sensitive subject today. I think it is a topic that is not openly discussed, and is largely misunderstood – especially in the Christian world. I have had several people at the Bible Education Center ask me (in hushed, apologetic, and deeply shamed tones) if their loved ones who committed suicide are banished forever to a place of torment. My friends carried a heart-rending grief because religious authorities had told them this was the case. If you do not already know the answer to this question, perhaps you will find more peace as we discuss Ahithophel, Judas, and Bible thoughts on suicide.
