Why is God always the answer?

I sorry but I don't feel the same. I'm a christian and I don't understand why you think god is always the answer. God is not here with us is he? Can you see him. Well maybe you can but I can't. Whether people believe it or not suicide is not that bad of a thing. I guess us you would say god has all ready banished me to hell. I want to get in touch with god but I don't know how. How can I get in touch with god if he's the one putting all this pain, anger, stress, and loneliness..

Sorry if I caused you any pain or just any feeling in general.

My response is in Green:

You didn't cause me any pain, however, I am saddened by what you said. I am sad that you claim to be a Christian but don't seem to know the same Jesus that I know. He is always the answer.

You said that suicide is not a bad thing. Why do you say that? Why do you say that killing yourself which is acting like God in your own life is not a bad thing? Why would you say that a person killing themselves and sending their soul to hell is not a bad thing?

You asked if God is here with us, well let me answer you with what God says. (Romans 8:9 NIV) You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ.

So if the person is a Christian then yes God is with them, but if they are not a Christian then no He is not.

You asked why I think God is the answer. I guess that is a good question, although I don't understand how someone who has accepted Christ as their savior would not understand. Anyway, the reason I believe God is always the answer is because sin is always the problem. When God created Adam and Eve they did not have any problems. They had no worries or concerns. As soon as they sinned, they had major worries and problems. What do you think the answer to their problems was? God!!

Not much has changed since Adam and Eve, we are all born into this world as sinful beings and sin is our most important problem. All of our problems can be traced back to sin. Disease, death, you name it all go back to sin. We live in a fallen world because of the sin of Adam and Eve and the answer to their problem is still the answer for our problem. God!!

After Adam and Eve sinned God cursed all of creation, that is why we have the problems we do now. We have all sinned and God declares because of His holy nature that anyone who sins will die. Now that is a major problem. God is not talking about physical death, that came into creation because of the original sin too, but He is talking about the second death, or in other words death of the soul in punishment for eternity. (Ezekiel 18:4 NIV) For every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son--both alike belong to me. The soul who sins is the one who will die.

I don't know about you, but to me that is a major problem and the ONLY solution to it is Jesus Christ. (John 14:6 NIV) Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." So are you beginning to see why I think God is the answer?

Jesus says He is the way to God the Father. That is the good news, we don't have to worry about eternal punishment if we accept Jesus as our Savior. Without Him it does not matter how we die because we will go to hell.

On the subject of suicide look at this: (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV) Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; {20} you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

If you still think that suicide is not a bad thing, maybe you should take stock of your life and make sure that Jesus is really living in your heart. Have you ever come to the place where you realized that you were a sinner, under a death sentence by a holy God and that there was nothing you could do to save yourself? If you have, did you ever ask Jesus to forgive you and come into your heart? If not then you should try to do so, because you are not saved. Many people consider themselves to be Christians because they grew up in the church or because their parents were, or because they are a moral person, but none of that will get you into heaven; only forgiveness by Jesus Christ will get you in. God wants a personal relationship with you but it has to be through Jesus because He is the only way to the Father.

I hope you will reconsider your statements and what is in your heart.
