Is suicide a sin?

I remember how shocked I was when I first read this scripture.  I had no idea it was in the bible and I don’t think it means “go take a prescription drug.  I take it to mean “endeavor to heal” not mask symptoms.  Truly endeavor to GET WELL.

“…he who does not use his endeavors to heal himself is brother to him who commits suicide.” Proverbs 18:9b

    I completely agree. Healing ourselves does not mean drugging ourselves. That is pushing problems aside. We should face our problems head on.
