True. I too believe in God most of the time, I will admit that I am still getting there. But, do you think God could lead you to sucide? Could that ever be your chosen path, destiny, whatever that God chooses? Or is that to cruel for God to make you suffer enough you want to die? Is God a loving God who would rather you live through all your struggles so he can eventually pass you on to him himself when he feels its right and will he never let you struggle enough that you just have to die? I don't know if I can answer yes to that because it brings up the question, why then, if God loves us enough to keep us here till he himself chooses to cause us to die, do people commit sucide in the first place? Do only people who don't know God take that path, because God is not in their life and not controlling it, so to speak? That doesnt seem fair to me. I would like to think God cares about all people no matter if they follow him or not, he created them after all.
Out of the box thinking is good for you. It challenges you and gets those brain juices flowin'.(:
Those are some difficult questions. I truly believe that God can lead you to anything. He led so many people in the Bible, to do things that they believe they could not do themselves. But then again, God was their with them, God chose them.
So I believe God could lead you to anything..because it always has a good reason. BUT you have to decipher if that's God talking to you, or Satan leading you to suicide. God is always a loving God. People commit suicide on their own choice (and possibly satan tempting them). Or is God leading them to suicide for a reason? Then again, the verses say; "Do not be a fool--why die before your time?" (Ecclesiastes 7:17b).
So you would really have to study the verses, for Gods viewpoint on this matter. Even if people don't believe in God, he is still there...disbelief does not make him not be there. God is even controlling the life of the disbelievers. BUT God doesnt nessecarily control,
he may also influence the way they think, or even show signs. God can even place a tragic event in that persons life; that may lead them to
God. He is always there; if you want him to or not, he is always there. I agree, God does care. He did create them; they are his children; his artwork. God loves everything he placed on this Earth, becasue they all represent him, and he can speak through them. Who knows? He could be using our conversation right now, just so a certain person can read it...and start wondering about God. Wondering who he is, and why he loves us. We could have been chosen to lead a person to christ right now. He's there, always listening.
