I'm an atheist but if God created man why should he have complete dominion over a person's soul? Like sure he could command our interactions in relation to the planet, to plants and animals and even among each other, but a person's soul is literally their life essence if anything should be completely under your authority it should be that. Since no one asked to be born people should have the opportunity to opt-out of life if they want to. If you don't want to let suicidal people into heaven that's fine, but they should just be terminated from existence, not sent to hell. It's really sadistic and weird to think that just because you were born now you have to play along with God's weird and sick game, otherwise, you have to go to hell, why can't people just be allowed to not have to be Christians or Muslims or whatever and just opt-out. It's really terrible to put people through situations that are so terrible and painful that they want to kill themselves and then punish them for taking that course of action. Especially considering the fact that alot of people are born into wealth and prestige and have lives with little to no suffering. Of course this is all redundant anyways because God doesn't exist and the only reason why suicide is a sin is so that peasants and serfs wouldn't kill themselves and would continue to work on their master's land for generations with a smile.
