How is wanting to kill oneself any different from minding one s own affairs?

If for example, it isn t anybody else s business if a bilingual parent decides to raise their child monolingual or a same sex-attracted person decides to live a sexless heterosexual marriage or a person chooses not to share any details of his/her personal life, why is it any different if a person wants to kill themselves? Does his/her body belong to anyone else? Is their life someone else s property? 

We wouldn t like it if other people interfered in our personal lives or trampled on our basic human rights, so why should we be denied or punished for a refusal to live a life we don t not want nor asked for? Just like the same sex attracted person wouldn t like it if they were either forced into a same sex relationship or to go celebate nor would the bilingual parent like it if they were questioned or criticized for their decision not to raise their child bilingual, why would it be any different when it comes to someone who is suicidal and there is absolutely nothing in this world that he/she wants?

    Because taking a life or cutting a life is a heavy crime in the Eyes of God and such criminals who take their own lives will not have a blissful afterlife and will face punishment from God. 

    No matter who it is, taking a life is still a crime and that is NOT minding your own business, that's cutting off the soul. Your own life, your body and your soul don't even belong to you, you and your soul belongs to God and to cut off His property is a crime. 

    Who gave you the permission to take away someone's life or your own? 

    Only God can take your life or resurrect you whenever He wants. You don't even own yourself and don't have the right to mess with God's Property because you didn't create the body you have and the soul that was instilled inside.  

    If you think you can take your own life, know God will not give you a good afterlife. Such a good afterlife is forbidden to such criminals.

    Humans do belong to someone else, their Creator, Almighty God.

    Where my family is from we do not have these kinds of practices but we do not judge because on planet earth there are some confusions that are unique here among humanity. Mostly I do not understand in the past your need to change genders because you should rejoice with the life you were given by God and learn what is unique about yourself.  Those who do this are frequently confused and should have counseling and many return to the gender they left because they really needed to just be who they were and be accepted.

    Yeah, this is one of the main areas in which I disagree whole heartedly with Christians, of today. They say that these things which are personal freedoms are up to them. The right to choose when you die, the right to choose when you reproduce, the right to choose whether you take this sort of drug or that sort of drug, or refuse drugs or vaccines or medications or medical treatment. There are some situations where it just isn't up to anyone else, and that includes parents, doctors, police, and especially priests. The bible is nonsense, and at the very least is meant to be taken metaphorically. If you're going to take it literally you're a nut and should be in a mental hospital, where by the way, there are some people they're keeping alive against their will. In straight jackets.
