Only if you have a seat in heaven guaranteed
Why does God want Christians to convince others to believe in him instead of God himself proving his existence?
If someone don't believe in him, he probably won't punish them, he'll probably show them some how that he is real.
He prove it already and if people don't believe in him then they just gonna find out he is real when the world ends.
If he has no reason to prove it, it means he doesn't care that we believe in him, then why does he punish those who don't believe in him?
Cause it doesn't have to, they should believe him. God is real and no one has to prove it.
And why does it not appear again? So more people would believe in him
If you don't believe in god then tell me this, who made the land and the light and us human. He did. If it wasn't for him we wouldn't be on this earth.
His son already appeared, that should be good enough
If God wants to convince the greatest number of people that he exists, why does He not appear to us and say "Look at me, I exist"? That way everyone would believe in him.
Heaven is better that Earth. However, we must be on this Earth to share God's word. So if you are saying that it is better to commit suicide then waste time on Earth then I would disagree. We must spend as much time as we can here to spread God's word so that more people will be with us in heaven. only 1/3 of the population is Christian. It's up to God if he will give you a second chance after committing suicide and if he will let you in heaven.
Congratulations! You've unveiled the reason why Christianity is nihilistic at its core. Instead of placing value intrinsically, within THIS life, they toss it into the "beyond" or the "afterlife." Why devalue this life in favor of some garden beyond the horizon? Those who deny their reality in favor of idealism are the highest tier of nihilists, yet nobody tends to associate religion with nihilism (ironic) so all of this is swept under the rug
You have to work your way to heaven, that why heaven is better than earth
is heaven real? use your life. its your only one and if heaven isnt real then you wasted it by suicide
Lemme make you more clear,
1st in reality this life , what if someone bully you inside a jail with something u hate just because "1 reason" .. u seen as failure
2nd about hereafter, what happen if God doesn't create any kind torchers inside before He create us to this world.. doesn't it mean we will never know what actually is heaven?
because I am Muslim believer, i need to believe that every single life have it own duel or (comparisons) such as man and woman ..dark and light...and lot more, HUMAN AND JIN
hell doesn't exist
oh come on,we all know that in this life there is something call "hell" . so don't just die before learn about it... if u born as a rich and easy life then u need learn more.
assuming Heaven is a actual physical place we can investigate I don't see a reason to compare it with a life on Earth without demonstrating its existence at all
I don't mean suicide, I mean that if someone kills you, it would be good because you would go to heaven
maybe you just go to the heaven if you do good things on your life, so if you kill yourself you don't go to the haven
it is not?
who told you that heaven was better than Earth?
there would be if heaven were real
the Long Island Medium has channeled people who have passed from suicide and they were able to communicate their prescense on the other side and sent positive, assuring messages to loved ones.
cant say there are many mercy killers out there doing favors for the greater good of others
A. the Bible still commands, Tho shalt not kill
B. the process through our earthly embodiments is where we gain tools, knowledge and spiritual growth that prepares us for our final earthly ascension into heaven as forever spiritual beings. we are then prepared for the next level of spiritual enlightenment
Although a murderer does decide when someone dies unless you don't think they have free will. Could you be a little clearer with your point?
No ir is not. God decides when life ends, not man.
If life is better in heaven than on earth, and murder takes people from earth and puts them in heaven, then doesn't murder make someone else's life better? Wouldn't that make being a murder a good thing? The murderer is sacrificing their own access to heaven to expedite the access for others.
I know I am going to Heaven, but I am in no rush to get there.
he who murders would not go to heaven, those killed would go
Why would you go to Heaven if you murder people?
I don't mean suicide. If at death you go to heaven, people would not be afraid of death, and murder would not be bad, on the contrary, you sacrifice yourself by going to hell so that other people go to heaven
Suicide is not a disqualification for Paradise.
which is why most religions consider suicide as disqualification to paradise.
