|Suicide and the Bible
- November 2018
Dr. Martin wrote this Exposition in 1981 on suicide which has recently become an important issue in America and around the world. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, 2018, suicide is "the act or an instance of taking one's own life voluntarily and intentionally, especially by a person of years of discretion and of sound mind." The word "suicide" is derived from the Latin sui, one's self, and caedere, to kill. For the person committing suicide emotions override the characteristic of a sound mind.

In fact, as history abundantly attests, religious beliefs in the hands of human beings, and the wish to sustain or enhance them, have caused some of the most disastrous wars imaginable. All people know this. Something is wrong somewhere.
