The 11th Hour (TJL 5.2)

This week, you’ll read an assortment of verses commonly used to discuss suicide.  Read these as you continue to think about Judas, and the possibility that God gave him grace.

Friday                  1 Corinthians 3:10-17, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Some have used these passages as evidence that there is no hope for those who commit suicide. However, a closer look at the context of these verses shows that these words refer to 1) the destruction of the theological foundation of a person’s life, and 2) the defilement of one’s body through impure acts (immorality). Have you ever heard these verses used to relate to suicide? Why do you think people would use them for that purpose?
