I think it's pretty obvious from a Biblical standpoint: it's against God because He made women for man to enjoy, and if man didn't enjoy his woman, then he was disrespecting God. The same logic applies to suicide. He looks at you for being ungrateful to what He has given you.

Ignoring the misogynistic overtones, this isn't a very good argument in any case.

-Does God really not know that not everyone likes the same thing? If we don't like strawberries, is that an affront to God because he supposedly made them? What about spinach? Or turkey?

-Why should not accepting/liking a gift warrant eternal punishment?

Why should not accepting/liking a gift warrant eternal punishment?

Well this is how I think of it. Imagine you found a spare dollar in your pants, and you offered it to me, but I was like 'meh'. Then, imagine we were BFFs and you sold your house to give the precedes to me, but I rejected it and was like 'meh'. They stand on two different levels of importance. Obviously, it's a ridiculous example, but the point stands. I mean, life is the greatest gift of all. However, I can't think of anywhere where it says "Suicide warrants eternal ****ation. Forever. And ever. And ever". Plus there's the fact that the bible has been....'adjusted' over the past couple millennia to suit individual's needs.

there is a difference. the person who sold the house sacrificed himself for your hapiness. actually a dollar is valuable for everybody since every human being uses it. actually imagine giving a million dollar to some guy who is happy living with his tribe in the woods... i doubt he would be overly happy about your gift.

and life isnt always great. some people have horibble lives and i can make up a story about a person with a horibble life.

besides, god gave eve to adam not to the human race. i really cant understand why people compare eve to EVERY single girl and adam to EVERY single man.

Well, I oppose it. But that's not stopping them. So as long as they're not pressuring me to become one, than I won't stop it.

The government shouldn't be involved in any marriage, I saw a video of a marriage that didn't involve gov or religion and I think that's the way they all should be. The gov is an evil entity and people shouldn't bother asking it's permission to get married.

The reason it's not there is because suicide was incredibly rare in the old days. People held life as sacred. They believed that the dead were conscious of nothing, no paradise, no firey hell, just dead (Ecclesiastes 9:4-10).
