    It is also a mental illness that can be treated! There are literally dozens of treatments available. Talking can help, therapy can help, medication may help as well. There are millions of people who wanted to kill themselves and who were saved. Saying that death is unavoidable when you have depression is just negligent.

    Probably the most important words on this page, next to 'get help if you need it' and most people prolly glazed over it without a second thought...

    It's something that comes from within, not some thing some one tells you, and not something you take, smoke, ingest, eat, buy, wear etc...if it came from outside you, it's temporary, fleeting and most likely comes with a visible as well as a [hidden] cost.
    Worlds greatest lie isn't the check is in the mail, it is...'I'll be happy when...'

    I have been dealing with my own mental health issues for a bit now. I take medication and have gone to therapy, but my biggest support and source of strength are my friends and family. The love that they give me helps me so much.

    As sad as it might sound, from YouTubes POV there is little to criticize. They have an automated system, Etika uploaded NSFW content to his channel and as per the rules, YouTube removed his channel after 3 strikes.

    This can happen when you live without a purpose, and/or when you try to escape from pain. I hope he knew, God had a purpose for him, a very great purpose: to help people, the whole world, and possibly stop incidents like this, by following him.

    Because he didn't think his life had a purpose anymore, or in Atheistic terms: he REALIZED(<Not true) his life didn't have a purpose anymore. I say that because atheism (what is mostly taught and encouraged) teaches that life is meaningless, so atheism encouraged this. But God (Yahweh) always has a purpose for us all because He knows we need one, He's awesome. Don't you think so too? (I hope and pray so.)

    I think you meant nihilism... actually, it is the dictionary definition of what you said.

    I used atheism to put a spotlight on the teaching that there is no God, which can easily lead to immorality.

    So praying for God alone is not enough, taking care of your older parents, taking them to there grave after they day. There are always something to do. I was useless once but I took care of me mother when she got sick, I stopped my education for sometime for her, did I plan it or know this is my purpose or what my future purposes are, NO, after that I became useless again did I kill myself, No. God always give you pain/test you can handle. God will always reply if you believed in him or not, if you said God this pain is too much for please take it away from me, he will. I don't have friends and I am a virgin gay, my test in life is not having friends because social life is not for everyone so mine is being gay. The future is dark for me but would I kill my self, no. Wait for purposes people don't rush, it is not always clear.


    Yeah this material world is meaningless until life give it a meaning.
    this world doesn't exist until I open my eyes to see it. imagine this world without life and something to see, is it here?

    Acting in a way that will secure the survival (and ideally well-being) of your own kind (be it your family, extended family, nation or even mankind) is enough of a purpose. No opinion about God required.

    Imagine you are in a desert and there is only little spots of resources/water here and there. Other than that, there is only sand as far as the eye can see. Somebody who thinks life is pointless without God or an ultimate reason is like a person who does not even try to move ahead in the desert. And even if there is nothing but sand at the end, at least you had an adventure and kept trying instead of staying where you are, waiting for death.

    To me God=limits, people who don't have limits can do anything that is wrong more easily I think and kill them selfs too very easily.

    Limits and standards are good too.

    Do you believe in a specific God or just a higher power?
    You are right that the lack of belief in a God can promote bad acts. But so can the believe in a God (especially a monotheistic belief).

    One God of course.

    God believers could expand their love and knowledge without killing but unfortunately they do. Sometimes people just don't want this love.

    Also not every God believer warrior is a true believers. Maybe it is his job or something.

    Iraqi soldiers in 90s killed alot families but the ones who came to my family didn't.

    As harsh as it sounds, the claim that every person has a purpose, is simply disproven by the fact that children die.
    Since you believe in a specific God, don't you wonder why he condemns your homosexuality even though you didn't choose to be gay? It's been pretty much proven that gay men are gay due to genes.

    Did you see the prove? The food industry paied doctors to say sugar is fine haha.

    Those who support us gays are here for the money only so that you can buy their albums.

    Those who doesn't support gays, their career get killed too. Isn't this a war too?

    Being gay is the ultimate test, will I live it or not just like any sin.

    Respectfully i disagree. i tend to lean towards agnostic and life has plenty of meaning. its one of those things you only get a single shot at if you ask me so I intent to live it plenty (I have suffered from depression before and all I can tell people is to seek help! you are never alone on this.)

    Could you please tell me about your depression? I really want to know.

    Is that you imagine your past and think are this and that because if it? And then cry.

    Why don't you people accept sadness and lost, it is part of life.

    There are two future sadness I am ready for. These two I know they are coming.

    There has been a study published this year which suggests that the same genes which cause men to be gay also make women more desirable. So if it shows up in a woman, its evolutionary beneficial, if it shows up in a man, it is a disadvantage regarding reproduction. However, we can probably assume that throughout history (especially since civilisation) gay men also fathered children and hid their real desires.

    I find it sad that you assume it is sinful due to your religion. I don't know if lesbians are also stigmatised in your country, but theoretically, you could marry a lesbian, have children with her and still have a somewhat open marriage. Just a thought (not sure what a lesbian would think about that).

    Maybe. But I don't support you. I think you have a right to live the way you want and be left alone with regards to moral judgement.
