Would like to hear the Theists side of this question.
When I was an evangelical christian, I was told that suicide was a sin worthy of eternal torment.
I could never get my head around this doctrine. A person so tormented in life, would be even more tormented in the afterlife for the sin of been tormented in this one???

Over the years Ive attended the funerals of several friends who have taken their own lives.
All sad, All tormented by their own 'demons'.

Ive had my own episodes of wanting to depart (forever) this life, but thankfully still here and enjoy life.
Just cant wrap my head around the doctrine of eternal torment for people who are trying to escape a tormented life...

Ive stuck up for you many a times on this site but you are now showing your true colours (either that or im now just becoming wise to them)
Delete this post then.
is moderating a sin? (since the thread seems to be wandering off course, at the OP's instigation)
APG - // Andy that is a loaded threat and you should be ashamed of yourself. //

That is not a threat of any kind, veiled or otherwise. I don't do threats, I am trying to avoid a thread spinning off track, nothing more than that, so I am not ashamed of myself than you.

// There is nothing wrong with this thread -or there wasn't until you put your oar in -yes zap this if it makes you feel good . Custer's last stand and all that........... //

You have no evidence that I deleted the post, so why don't you try winding your imagination in and stop the unfounded accusations, and return to the thread.
