Can’t get any worse than this.

I’m referring to a story in The Times called ‘Dignitas founder plans assisted suicide of healthy woman where the founder of a Swiss clinic for assisted suicide, Ludwig Minelli, is quoted saying:

  • that suicide is a “marvellous opportunity” that should not be restricted to the terminally ill or people with severe disabilities
  • that anyone who has “mental capacity” should be allowed to have an assisted suicide, claiming that it would save money for the National Health Service.
  • “We should have a nicer attitude to suicide, saying suicide is a very good possibility to escape.”

Have you reached the end of your tether? Do you want to end your life? Do you want assistance?

Here is the assistance that I can give you, and it cost more than the kind the likes of Ludwig Minelli can offer:

Suicide is not the answer. It will not give your soul rest. You might find that you have exchanged one kind of hell for one worse.

If you want true rest for your soul, there is one way only. Listen to this:

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My load is light.”

This is the invitation of Jesus who also said:

“I have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly.”

If you think you have used up all your resources, you are wrong—you have this invitation to abundant life left; you have just to accept it. May God bless you.

Who is Jesus?
