Interesting how the atheist is always quick to blame God.So your saying depressed and suicidal people failed a test? Wow please don't ever try and council mentally ill people.
The fact is mental illness is complicated and in many cases people are not in control of their actions, they cannot help being depressed or suicidal, they aren't failures for being at crisis point. Suicidal people need love, support and non judgement not lectures about how they failed life and now must be punished by a pretty cruel god.
If God truely had a plan for everyone, he made a person with a set out plan. He also created them. Then when that person can't cope with what he or she has been given that would surely be the fault of that god, not the person. But then to go on and punish them for not coping that's sick.
If a child was learning to ride a bike alone, you stood and watched them, you saw them fall over, fail, get upset and not cope. You then instead of helping them, offering advice, giving them a shoulder to lean on. You punish them for failing your a bad person and a bad parent. Same goes for a god that places a person in crisis and then punishes them for being that way.
Lets face it, for the majority, lets say 99% things DO get better. Whatever the problem may be time has a way of healing all wounds. Personally I've been suicidal, though it was just over 20 years ago. Had a friend of the family not showed up I wouldn't be here and thats a fact. The car was running and I was halfway asleep. I'll spare you details because they're not relevant.
Truth is every single person upon this planet has a problem of some sort. Everyone, from that 6 year old being picked on in class to Bill Gates getting people leaving him death threats on his instagram because he's a scumbag. There is not a soul that doesn't have some issue. I know you do, i know everyone who has posted in this thread has.
Some tests are harder then others. But we all have to learn to deal with things. Sadly some find solace in a bottle, others in a case of pills, others with one night stands. Everyone is looking for peace and only One can give it. If you end your life then you've basically given up looking.
For what its worth i don't believe every suicide will end up in hell. I think it depends on the circumstances. But it really has to be a no way out situation. Say a child see's her entire family murdered, gets raped and left for dead in some war effort. If she survives and decides to end things I think she will get mercy but its not up to me.
The Almighty knows, he knows when he created you that you would go to heaven or hell, he knew when he created me that I'd end up in hell or heaven. We are here so We Know why we end up where we will. There will not be a single soul in hell and he won't know why he is there.
This post is already too long, all over a simple analogy. Why don't you go see if you can find that professor who will pass someone who leaves half their test blank?
Like it or not, this life is a test. From the moment we enter to the second we depart we are put into trial. But how's an atheist ever gonna understand that?
