Loving Death

Proverbs 8:36 "But he that sinneth against Me wrongeth his own soul: All they that hate Me love death."

Every unrepentant person hates God (some are more vocal about it than others). They also love death (again, some are more vocal).

Albert Mohler has found a few who are very vocal...

Here again we see the appeal to efficiency.
"For 50 suicide attempts you have one suicide and the others are failing with heavy costs on the National Health Service. If we would have another attitude to suicide, saying suicide is a very good possibility to escape. In many, many cases they are terribly hurt afterwards sometimes you have to put them in institutions for 50 years. Very costly."
Very costly? Is cost our god? What about truth? What about doing right? These things have lost their meaning.

We like to think that all people are equally and infinitely valuable. But the reality is, real (numeric) costs can be assigned to people...
