Do People Who Commit Suicide Go To Hell? Ask Teal Episode About Suicide

<< Back to videos

In this episode, Teal explains that suicide is a topic which has been shrouded in stigma for hundreds of years. In our society today, suicide has become taboo because it is so tightly interwoven with the concept of sin.

Teal explains how the concept of suicide as a sin originated and then goes on to say that those who commit suicide DO NOT go to hell.

Suicide is the byproduct of the feeling of total powerlessness. It occurs when someone has focused negatively for so long or with such intensity, that they become cut off from the natural stream of well being which created their life in the first place (their higher self).

Teal explains that suicide could be accurately seen as pushing a re-set button. It is not a decision which is good or bad in and of it's self. Source (that which is often called God) does not condemn nor condone the decision. And nor should we... We can not say that suicide is wrong without also saying that death is wrong.
