I’ve met Michelle Whitedove and read a couple of her books. Although I can’t say I’ve ever been a “God’s Plan” person, I do agree with her general perspective. But I think we plan our own lives out prior to coming here, including the possibility of early exits. Those create huge ripples in the lives of those left behind.
Her article does not cover the idea of “assisted suicide” where the already dying chose to seek assistance to end their pain. Pet owners feel it humane to assist our pets by putting them out of their misery, but I fail to see how humane it is to allow terminally ill people to languish in agony. Would that person really be rejected from Heaven because they couldn’t take the pain any longer? Controversial topic for any believer, to be sure.
Let me know what you think. Does suicide render us inadmissible to Heaven?
