Internet Teen Suicide: DONT BE LIKE Abraham Biggs Jr PLEASE!

On September 4th 2008 I had already written an article on suicide (click here to read) . I had been hearing about a teenager that had literally recorded his suicide by using live video feed from the Internet. Below is a portion of the online article I read:

Abraham Biggs Jr. gained notoriety by regrettable means. He was one of a few people to broadcast their final moments (usually through suicide) live on the Internet. Biggs, who was 19, used Justin.tv to broadcast from his father’s bedroom in Hollywood, Fla. on Wednesday. He talked about suicide, took a fistful of pills and lay down on his bed to die. Of those who were watching some doubted what they saw was real, while others encouraged him. On a personal note, the thought of the latter group’s behaviour provokes a rather vile sensation in the pit of this author’s stomach.

Police found him dead some four hours after the broadcast had started, and 12 hours after he’d announced his suicide on a bodybuilding web forum. (read full article here)

Am I reading this right? Has the world become so tainted with the glory of Satan that one would find it necessary to kill themselves before millions of viewers? Don’tbe fooled into thinking that suicide is the end because its just the beginning of eternal sorrow and damnation FIRST for your soul, then both body and soul will be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone to burn forever and ever.

Now granted, I don’t want you NOT to kill yourself out of fear of going to hell, I DON’T want you to kill yourself because life is worth the living just because HE lives. Who is this He that I am referring to? THE LORD JESUS CHRIST! You see, the only Person that needed to die has already done just that FOR YOU! God wrapped Himself in flesh like you and I, was born in a manger and was crucified just for you. Get this, He literally laid His life down for YOU (just so you would not have to kill yourself, as He promises in His Word, He will not give you more than you can bare). Then watch this, He raised Himself up from the dead and now lives forever more. You ask me how I know He lives, well, He lives within ME. How in the world could someone who was 100% God and 100% man live on the inside of me. Good question. He gave me His Spirit (The Holy Ghost) and now I am a brand new creature in Him.

No longer do I have to take pills, slit my wrist or throw in the towel on life. Why? Because I now have inherited eternal life through Christ who giveth both you and I the victory. Remember, the ultimate martyr was Christ Our Lord. He paid the ULTIMATE sacrifice. I am willing to bet if the Internet existed over 2000 years ago you too would have been able to see His death, burial and resurrection just to prove to you that YOU DON’T HAVE TO DIE. Why? Christ paid it all! Now, you can be free to LIVE AGAIN with the power of the Holy Ghost on the inside of you.

Dear teenage brother, my dear teenage sister, DON’T BE LIKE ABRAHAM BIGGS! Instead be like Jesus Christ who has already paid the ultimate sacrifice. Remember, life is worth the living just because He lives (and that He is the Lord Jesus Christ). I am praying for you, the family of Abraham and all those who feel it necessary to go around thinking that all hope is gone.
