People seem to pick the wrong solutions to ease their pains. With suicide you don’t escape your problems—you create new ones. The person died committing self murderand after death there is no repentance (John 8:21; Galatians 5:21).
Many turn to booze to ease their pain but that doesn’t help. After recovering from the hangover, the problem is still there and probably will be worse because of the drinking (1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Isaiah 5:11; Proverbs 23:29-35, 20:1).
Many turn to selling drugs and prostitution, hoping to escape their poverty. Drugs are the scum of neighborhoods, and it is sinful to use them (Romans 13:1-7; 1 Peter 2:13-17; Rom. 13:11-14). A woman in need of money uses her body to arouse men at strip clubs or sells her body having sex and such is fornication and will be condemned on the Judgment Day (Proverbs 6:23-35; 1 Cor. 6.15-20).
The way to deal with problems is to commit our lives to God so He can give us peace, and that will happen if one is for real (Matthew 11:28-30; John 14:6, 6:45).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
