Christians should be the freest people from the universal problem of suicide because they have surrendered to the will of God. Mental illness may cause a Christian to commit suicide, leaving the person innocent of wrongdoing. The ethics involved in suicide are being reappraised in some Christian circles. Despite no Bibical chapter or verse declaring suicide to be wrong, a Christian should not commit suicide because the life being ended belongs to God rather than the person committing suicide.
