What Does the Bible Say About Suicide? – National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – Available 24 hours – 1-800-273-8255

Questions in this Episode

  1. What was God doing before he created the universe?
  2. I am wondering, what does the Bible say about suicide?
  3. In 2nd Peter 2:20, it seems like Peter is saying people can lose their salvation, but in John 6 and 10 it seems like Jesus says we can’t lose our salvation. How do we make sense of these verses?
  4. Following up to a previous answer you gave about the “us” in Genesis 1:26. Doesn’t the “us” in Genesis also indicate the presence of the Holy Trinity?
  5. How and why did people divide the Bible into its books, chapters, and verses?
