Christ is the Answer to Life's Questions
TOO MANY FIND SOLACE IN SUICIDE!
Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.
Little children as young as three are
killing themselves in the USA, where a recent news report labels suicide epidemic in
the most affluent nation of the world. Canada isn’t far behind, but until
recently we didn’t have statistics because child suicides just weren’t reported
Now the sad story is known
everywhere! Not only the incurably ill, the chronic manic depressive or
jilted lovers are killing themselves, but so are teenagers and little children.
The European situation has taken an
ugly twist also. A British company has even published a book on how
to commit suicide.
MANY ROCK GROUPS GLORIFY VIOLENCE,
DEATH & SUICIDE!
It’s just too much
for the normal mentality to grasp. Why would anybody want to kill
themselves when life is so precious? There is so much to live
for, family, work, friends, love, and God!
Each of us has a built-in safety
mechanism to help us in times of danger. The adrenaline begins to
flow when we are afraid and need to escape a dangerous situation - extra
strength comes to us in times of trouble.
Everything within our beings is
programmed for self-preservation, and our love reaches out to help others in
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES?
Then why the epidemic? What are
the underlying causes for this rush toward death? Large numbers of
Russians disillusioned with the hopelessness of life in the communistic,
totalitarian Soviet Union, became alcoholics.
They had resigned themselves to a slow
form of suicide through booze and many are addicted today! Vodka dulls
the brain and makes it easier; they claim.
Alcohol and drugs enslave millions
around the world, and they are responsible for many violent deaths on the
highways, murders, and suicides!
Without a doubt, the economic situation
of the past decade with its gloom and doom for so many has brought heartache
and pain. And with the present generation being pampered by welfare,
high wages, and a free ride for so long, when the crunch came, they just could
SOME TOOK THE BIG LEAP!
Financial reverses - where an
individual loses everything - often push a person over the brink of
suicide. The Bre-X scandal claimed its first victim, BC lawyer Lawrence
Beadle took his own life after it was officially confirmed that the
Bre-X stock was worthless.
During the great crash of ’29 many
wealthy business tycoons who lost everything overnight took the big leap,
jumping to their death from their opulent high-rise buildings!
Another factor contributing to the
increasing suicide rate is the psychology of war and nuclear
destruction that haunts our young people. After the dissolution of
the Soviet Union, people felt quite safe. In May 1997 Boris Yeltsin,
ticked off by the expansion of plans of NATO - stated that Russia reserves the
right of ‘First Strike’ with nuclear weapons if
Now in 2023, Russian President Vladimir
Putin is echoing that threat as he is systematically destroying the country of
Ukraine with help from China, North Korea, and Iran. Many nations of the world
are now struggling with high inflation and poverty with the lack of energy and
America's greatest liar and bumbler shutting down oil drilling, natural gas
refineries, and delivery pipelines to please the wealthy Climate Warming weirdo
War is still on many people’s minds as
we consider the terrible conflicts between Muslims, Croats, and Serbs in the
former Yugoslavia! And many believe that the conflagration which is slowly
simmering in the Middle East will soon erupt into another full-scale war!
If it’s all going to end in a
holocaust, many postulates, why not end it the way we choose - an overdose of
drugs, a bottle of pills, a razor blade, or a gunshot?
WILL IT GET WORSE? Unfortunately, the answer is
yes. It will get much worse unless a new psychology of life and living
emerges - a new philosophy that destroys the myth that man just happened by
chance, that we evolved from an ape!
No, my friend. Man did not evolve! We
were created in the image of God, not like an animal or insect! Human
beings are one of a kind and life is precious!
Therefore, we must stop the killing of
millions of unborn babies and change the word ‘abortion’ to ‘murder’. And
we must, once and for all, get rid of the Hitler mentality of infanticide,
euthanasia, and genocide.
CULTURE OF DEATH: THE PRODUCT
OF SECULAR HUMANISM!
The rush to assisted suicide by “short-sighted
men and women” in the medical field, sometimes triggers
cloak-and-dagger killings of unwitting and unwilling patients, whom they feel
are filling a space someone else should occupy!
Why are we seeing these evil things
escalate? Pope John Paul II addressed this phenomenon
correctly when he spoke of what he calls, ‘The Culture of Death’!
Dr. Henry Morgentaler - the secular
humanist - who rejected God and our Lord Jesus Christ, did irreparable harm to
our society, the dignity of women, and human life in general
during his long and bloody career as Canada’s leading fetus killer!
TWO MAJOR PROBLEMS!
The problem is two-fold! No.
1 - It is setting a bad precedent. If things are too tough,
throw in the towel. We often hear horror stories of people who were
depressed and only thought they were terminally ill or had received an
erroneous diagnosis before committing suicide!
No. 2 - Whoever assists in
a suicide is playing God. No one has the right to take human life but
God. Job said, “The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away;
blessed be the name of the Lord”. (Job 1:21) Ultimately, only God
decides if we live or die and when!
A VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION!
I have a grave concern about
governmental agencies, media journalists, medical doctors, and clergy who are
promoting weird sexual behaviour. Are they really desiring the best for these
misguided souls? Or do they have a hidden agenda?
Some are caring
folks. Others, I’m afraid may be ‘closet Kevorkians’ -
possibly homosexuals - who despise others, knowing that the more liberty and
license the homosexual lobby acquires, the more AIDS, STD, and suicides there
If you think that’s far-fetched,
remember: There were a sizeable number of homosexuals among Adolf
Hitler’s elite S.S. inner circle and Hitler’s relationship with Eva Braun was
allegedly only platonic - leaving us with the question - “Was Hitler also a
One thing we do know is that Hitler’s
top homosexual aids helped carry out his orders to imprison and kill thousands
of homosexuals. We also know that the world’s most famous Jew hater
and killer was himself part Jewish! How ironic!
In my opinion, the only people who
truly love sexual perverts are ‘born again Christians’ who
pray for them so that they will receive Jesus Christ as their personal
Saviour. And be miraculously healed - through faith and prayer in
Jesus’ Name - from AIDS and other diseases!
SATAN’S DEMONS LIED TO THE CULT
In a blind trust, 38 men and women
followed cult leader - weird, spaced-out, flying-saucer fanatic Marshall
Herff Applewhite to their deaths at a stately rented
mansion in Rancho Santa Fe, California!
Suicide is ‘self-murder’, as it is
called in Norwegian (selvmord), and condemned as
an abominable sin in the Holy Bible! Applewhite, who
was known as ‘Bo’, together with his female partner ‘Peep’, alias Bonnie Lu
Trusdale Nettles, left Oregon with a group of 20 hippies in 1975, looking
for a UFO to take them to another world!
The UFO never came, ‘Peep’ died
of cancer, and the aging ‘Bo’ changed his name to ‘Do’ and
began recruiting new members for his “Heaven’s Gate” cult via
the Internet. It paid off for him as new blood gave the cult new
impetus, together with the coming of the Hale-Bopp comet!
THE AGING FALSE PROPHET TOOK 38 PEOPLE
TO THEIR DEATHS AND A DEVIL’S HELL, HAVING BEEN TOTALLY DECEIVED FOR YEARS.
Let us never forget - when this life is
over, we will meet our Maker, and we will reap what we have
sown. And God loves us all and desires to save, heal, and bless
In the meantime, let’s begin loving one
another and stop harming one another. Amen. For further spiritual counsel,
