An article says that it is when suffering seems unbearable that suicide becomes an option (Attwood)
An article, "Suicide does not stop the pain" says that the pain does not really stop in suicide as it is transferred to the immediate family in terms of grief and loneliness (Caruso). He went on to explain that suicide or death does not necessarily give relief because relief is only felt by the living. Suicide is usually committed by people who are suffering from interminable pain and depression. He highlighted that causes of suicide such as depression are highly treatable. Since depression causes a chemical imbalance in the brain, it should be and cane be rectified by medicines.
According to one of the preachers, in a written article of his sermon, "How God Uses Suffering", God allows these things such as sufferings to happen" (MacArthur, 1997)He went on to enumerate some of the possible reasons why the loving God would allow such things in out life of even the good people. Why are pains inevitable and why does God seemingly unconcerned The first reason is to reveal our spiritual condition and spiritual character. He has added that "the truest crucible for testing one's genuine character is the severest trouble".
Secondly, he pointed that God uses suffering to humble us. ...
The author aptly described the pain caused by the humbling of God, "when the best and most beloved of our accomplishments start to fall apart, we can't do anything about it, that's very humbling and painful but purposeful".
Also God uses suffering and pain to draw us close to Him. When we experience the deepest and longest pains, we come to no one but to God. Not even our best friends and closes family can give the comfort that God gives. God plays the Father who wants His children to take comfort and security from Him and not from anything derived in the world.
Fourth, God uses suffering to display His grace. In a scripture from 2Corinthians 12:9, the Lord said to Paul, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weaknesses." (The Holy Bible, 2001) The Lord did not remove the sufferings of Paul because it was of purpose; however, God increased the grace in order for Paul to endure it.
Lastly, God uses suffering to perfect our power. He wants to make us grow for the magnificent plans that he has for our lives.
LOVE AND LOYALTY
The bible has a very profound defintion of love, in Chapter 13 of the book of Corinthians, which we often call the "love chapter". In a series of description, the bible says, " Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice on wrongdoing, but rejoice with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." (The Holy Bible, 2001)
The article, "LOVE" by Dr. Guy A Pettit describes three levels of love, the conditional love, the tough love and the unconditional love (Pettitt, 2008). "Conditional love tends to make other people responsible for
