bible suicide scripture quote - 10 Bible Verses About Suicide That Prove You're Not Alone

Don’t give up hope. You’re here for a reason.

Suicide awareness has grown since 13 Reasons Why.

Then when Anthony Boudain and Kate Spade claimed their own lives in 2018, the topic became more openly discussed on social media to promote awareness and to show support for individuals suffering from depression.

The numbers prove that more people feel hopeless than ever before.

World stress factors, social media, and an inability to escape life due to the world’s interconnection can make it seem like a 21st-century problem.

But, did you know that the Bible also talks about suicide, starting from the beginning of the Bible via the Book of Genesis?

The first couple in the Bible gave birth to two brothers: Cain and Abel.

Able was murdered out of jealousy by his brother. As a result, Cain was sent out from his family and his biggest fear was that others would try to do to him what he had done to his brother.

This is the first conversation where desperate fear could indicate that a person struggled with thoughts of suicide.

Instead, God told Cain that he would mark him in such a way that anyone who harmed him would also be harmed as well.

Instead of judging Cain for his emotional angst, he was giving support, a lifeline, to encourage him to face another day.

There are other stories in the Bible about suicidal thoughts and attempts. King David contemplated suicide when his son was found dead.

In the New Testament, Judas hung himself out of guilt for leading Christ to his captors for money.

King Saul killed himself after a long period of mental illness. King David’s advisor, Ahithophel, also claimed his own life.

Samson’s death could be ruled a suicide or a martyr act.

There are many places where scriptures show how people felt sad and hopeless.

By TS

Why do I hate Love?
Cause Love don’t have no heart.
Love don’t care about nobody,
and loves to rip you apart.
Love causes pain
Love causes stress
Love is just misery, confusion, and evil
at its best.
Why do I hate Love?
maybe cause Love hates me.
Love been treating me wrong and unkind
Since I was lil babe.
I was born in the 90s
To a mother who always say she Loves me
but her Love was neva true.
To a father I’ve neva seen before
not even once in a blue.
Why do I hate Love?
Cause Love made me look like a fool.
Use and abuse me like some worthless tool.
Love is cruel
and you’ll be the fool if you think it’s nice.
Every time I showed Love
I paid a tremendous price.
Love ain’t s***.
I’m my own witness.
Love did me wrong too many times
and will neva get my forgiveness.
Why do I hate Love?
‘Cause everybody I thought love me
turnt they back on me
especially when they put them
handcuffs and shackles on me.
Nobody will neva love me for me
they will just love me for what I got
and when all that’s gone
then they’ll just love me not.
Why do I hate Love?
Cause Love brought me to tears.
Love makes me show weak emotions
Like desperation and fear.
Love made me feel ways I’ve neva felt.
So I made a promise I’ll neva Love s***
not even myself.
If you choose to Love Love, search for Love, Chase Love
I promise I will neva judge.
But, when Love does you wrong
and it will!!!!
You can always read Why I Hate Love.
But before I go
Let me tell you why I hate Love the most
Cause it turnt me into something I wish I wasn’t
and that’s a young black man with no hope…..…
