From what I have read, Heaven hasn't arrived yet and hell hasn't been lit. All that takes place upon "His" return. In the mean time everyone takes a dirt nap. As to the answer to your question: That will be "His" decision, although he might not look to favorably on the wasting of his gift of life. He has made this world the most difficult of tests and does show mercy. Wish us all Luck!

I agree with What in that it is ultimately "His" decision.  We don't know, but what a risk.  As I see it, you can be forgiven for any sin if you ask and are sincere.  If you kill yourself, when will you ask for forgiveness?  You can't ask for forgiveness for something ahead of time for something you intend on doing. He is a gentle and loving God, but he also is very specific on how he expects us to live and act in order to obtain that precious gift of eternal life.  None of us deserve it, but we can do our best to earn it. If you are considering this, please please seek counseling.  If not, please pray for the friend or relative you may be referring to.

Suicide is a PERMANENT solution, to a TEMPORARY condition. Just pray harder. And ask for a blessing. Look around. You'll find someone in worse shape. I did. We all love you, and are praying for you.

"Thou shalt not kill" and to take your own life is murder and forgiveness is really up to the lord. Sometimes people go thru many great ordeals that can not really be explained. They feel more than a loss of hope but, as well as a loss of life from within. So can there be forgiveness? I think that is a question that is really up to the lord and that individual. The lord loves all his children equally. And, In this modern day world man most hold as strong as he can to his faith in our Father in heaven. Let his light and your faith shine bright in this dark and corrupt world.

a person who attempts or commits suicide is most often not in "their right mind" ie...severe depression, extreme emotional distress, anger.    We all know God is merciful and takes into consideration our situation and circumstances.  If mercy can be shown to murders and such (1Corinthians 6:9-11)surely He will take into count the severe emotional stress and any other factors that might cause this tragedy.  Our hope lies in the hands of our merciful heavenly father "who forgives in a large way" Isaiah 55:7

if you truly accepted Jesus as your savior you can not lose your salvation, it says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.  yes, you don't have a chance to ask forgiveness when you commit suicide but do you when you die in a car wreck, chances are no, no one expects to die in a car wreck, so you might forget or might not have a chance to ask for forgiveness for your sins.  so i believe if you are a true born again Christian you will not go to hell.

I agree totally with Pablo's statement: What if you are a born again Christian, and you are walking across the street in a crowd.  Say that a beautiful girl/handsome boy walks by and you look at him/her in a way you shouldn't, even only if for a minute, God says that is sin.  Then say you get hit by a car the very next moment and do not have a chance to ask for forgiveness - what happens then?  For all born again Christians, you cannot lose your salvation-period.  Suicide is a sin just like lying is a sin, and all sins past, present, and future were dealt with on the cross.  Praise Jesus that we have 100% assurance of Heaven through Him!

Honestly, I don't have an answer for you.  I'm struggling with the same thing.  I'm confused as to what I personally feel verses what my compulsive reaction is....which is, I feel worthless at times, guilty of all things and that all things that have happened to me, to everyone else, is all my fault. I know OBJECTIVELY that that isn't true using some logic however, the FEELINGS I have are not in consort with my brain.  I do believe that the brain and the heart have to work together as one...it creates the concept of intellect combined with the emotional attribute that makes us whole as a step above the other creatures of the earth.  It's the portion of God that lives within us without it, we are nothing more than another creature that just "acts" without consciousness or is dimly lit with it.  Sometimes I believe that people ARE dimly lit.  But that's another story.  
I can say I even learn from animals (which are incidently the other creatures formed on the earth).  Most of the rest of the animal kingdom doesn't inherently just destroy another creature for the heck of it, yes, it can appear pretty cruel to humans but humans aren't the only creature on earth and the most cruelty and evil I've seen on the earth hasn't been the rest of creation that does the most damage, it's one human to the other.  Therein lies the most evil.  As a whole we have a major, major impact on the rest of God's creations.
THAT in itself grieves me. I believe we are poor stewards of God's property.  Me included.  
Most of my depression stems from lifelong sufferings that constantly barrage me.  Death of loved ones, divorces, seperations, being put down and criticized, feeling responsible for everything.  Being beat when I was younger.  Threats to my life and quality of life, failures, exhaustion, fear, viewing the evil humans do to each other, money, even doing what I know is right but then culturally I'm rediculed as being a fool for doing the right thing....figure that one!  Giving my all and KNOWING the way to being successful and having people bar my way and outright lying about me THEN having people BELIEVING the lie but not believing the truth!!  I mean that objectively too.  THEN after I'm totally destroyed.....seeing them do exactly what I suggested and taking all kinds of credit for it.
Getting older and being told a bunch of excuses why I can't have this job or that job.....when growing up all I heard was how I needed experience first...well, I got older and got experience...now I'm hearing that I'm "over-qualified".  That to me is called, "bs".  If you feel compelled to laugh about the age thing...trust me, give it some time....YOU are going to experience it too at some point....I assure you.  
I've even been told by some so called, "christians" about how "bad" I am and I consider myself christian....I have constantly sought out my own soul to find the evil therein and attempt to have it removed from my life....on some points I am CONFIDENT that I am NOT evil or do such horrible things that I deserve Hell as my reward.  I have observed many, many times over how I have inadvertently helped save other people's lives just by speaking with them and I never knew it, they told me later on I had done that.  I have also done things in my life that people say to me that they couldn't have done it....they would've given up a long time ago, but I did it.  I've met major, major obstacles in my life and have BY MY SELF.....alone...without ANY real support to me and filled with bitterness towards people for leaving me hanging like that....when they come to me in other times seeking MY support and it ticks me off about it...but I overcame it and ONLY with the thoughts of Christ to comfort me...it gave me superhuman will and I know that wasn't even mine I'm sure.  BUT....in so saying....I've done it too many times and I'm VERY weary.  I'm VERY tired.  I KNOW I don't do everything right, but my gosh!  I NEED a break!!!  I'M not sure what to do!  
I feel like I've been ostracized, penalized, smitten, beat up, torn apart, wasted, fed to the dogs and alienated both doing right and standing for values that I believe ARE the right way and when I do wrong....I haven't seen a big difference in my fellow man when it comes to offering negative crap to me....and they say I'M negative when I see them doing just what they claim I am doing....it seethes me to no end.  Pointing out all my faults but not seeing that they are doing the same doggone thing just maybe in different areas or at some period of time, the same area just roles reversed.  
There are ways to approach people however for the most part I don't believe that most people really know how to go about it.  There HAS to be encouragement in there SOMEwhere....not just telling someone they are wrong for thinking that way or this way, YES...recongnizing the wrong, but saying it with the flow of honey....and sometimes it does have to be blunt and to the point, but with TIMING.  
All I can tell you is, try not to dwell on it.  Pray like your life depends on it (and it does).  HOPE that there IS redemption to your grief.  DON'T fool yourself that your thoughts are your own...even if no other human is around....THERE ARE OTHER FORCES AROUND US THAT WE ARE TOTALLY IGNORANT TO.  TAKE all your thoughts into captivity.  EVEN IF you feel just like I do now.....totally left behind personally, even when others are around you.  
HOPE that Christ is going to answer and preferably more sooner than later.  
If you think you can pick up small nuances or little indicators that He heard you, hope it is that but then again, if you are like me, how the heck do you REALLY know?  Let Him know you aren't smart enough to see those little things if you aren't.  I'm stupid, I admit it...I can't always pick up on what a higher intelligence (meaning God) is saying in His subtle way....not always.  I need help to pure sight.  I'd like to BELIEVE there is hope in my life....I WANT love desperately....I see it....I am just having a hard time with myself.  Scream for help if you have to.  I saying help right now as I write this.  
Pray.  Pray.  Pray.  God Bless you.  and I pray.........

Well, to truthfully answer your question it says in the bible that you're suppose to repent of your sins and he will forgive you. If you have time to ask for forgivness before your dead you'll probably go to heaven...if not I guess it's up to the Lord to make the desision. Just know that suiside isn't the answer and there are people who can help you through times like this.

Yes you go to heaven, the selfless act of suicide is seen as selfish, but it's not. They really think that the world will be better off without them. Of course they couldn't be farther from the truth but the act itself is greater than anyone I have ever met. I have never met anyone more caring and loving. With out Gods hand, who could do such an act anyway? Evil men kill themselves after they see what they have done, they act in fear for what all will say and do to them. For these people I see no hope, but the loving ones who canít help the feelings of depression, God help us please.

I wasn't raised with religion.  I was never baptised... nor was I ever 'saved'.  But I do believe in G-d.  I believe that he loves us all equally and that he loves non-Christians as much as he loves Christians.  I believe that it is wrong to say that someone is destined to burn in a pit of fire for all of eternity... even if they have led a better life than some so-called 'Born agains' out there (I don't buy it)... simply because they choose not to label themselves... and therefore separate themselves from all other denominations and groups and classes... and brothers and sisters.

I cannot imagine an all-knowing, all-loving, all-forgiving G-d... who loves us ALL more than a parent could ever love their child... condemning us to burn in hell for eternity for being weak or lost or confused.  Man is weak and man is flawed.  G-d knows this.  He created us, right?  ALL of us.  And if he loves us more than anyone else ever could... then I cannot imagine him turning his back on a lost or suffering child.  He may be disappointed... but I do not believe, personally (and I could be wrong... like all of us), that he would punish someone whom he loves so much, so mercilessly.

I could never do that... as a man... why would my G-d?  If he knows your heart... and knows your pain and hopelessness... then he would understand... better than anyone, right?  But he loves you... and you hurting yourself would hurt him... deeply.  Just as your killing yourself would hurt those who love you.  

That's my opinion anyway.

To David: I have a question to you. You say that you can't believe that an all loving God 1."turn His back on people" and 2."send them to hell."
1.Well how do you get to heaven?? You can get there by Jesus who died for you. Do you remember what he said? "My God,my God, Why has thou forsaken me?" He died and was forsaken by his father(God)but he rose from the dead and now he has a name above all names and sits at the Fathers right hands in Paradise.
1. God does not send you to hell. When he first created man everything was perfect. No pain in labor,no thorns, no death, no pain. What changed that? SIN!!! Sin is what sends you to hell. God does NOT want you to go to hell. If he did why did he send his Son out of glory to come to earth and save man? He gives us a whole book on how to live and how to escape hell but do we listen? NO! Let me tell you right now. God hates religion as much as you do. Satan invented religion. You go to heaven if you're saved. As you grow to know God more you love Him more and you want to please him so that is why you do things like wearing a veil, dressing modestly,etc. If you're not saved then none of these things matter. Pleas understand that God is NOT the one who sends you to hell. He goes to great measures to save you. You just have to be honest about your sins and believe with your heart(not your head there is a BIG difference) Just stop and look for signs that Jesus is calling you to Himself. I guarantee you will find them!!

The reason you feel so low is because you are ruled by the devil and he wants to send you to hell. So he tells you you're troubles will all be over if you die but let me tell you. They're just beginning!!! God gives you a choice to be saved and went to great lengths to ensure that you had a chance. He wants so bad for you to be his child but if you choose to reject Him then He has to send you to Hell and let me explain why. If God were the only one battling for your soul then we would all go to heaven but what people forget is that there is an adversary. The devil. If you reject God then you accept the devil and he has every right to your soul when you die. One day you will understand. I know more than half of you that read this (if you get this far before you rate it worst) will completely disagree with me and will say that I am "cold hearted" or I'm "not fair" but if Jesus died for you and is willing to save you from hell and turmoil then I say it's more than fair that we throw our lives down before him. There is a way out of doing this if you'll only deny the one who WOULD NOT deny you. Plus if you give Him your life then He will take care of you and work every thing out for good. Then you wouldn't have to commit suicide. Because it's not your life and you don't have to worry about it! God does all the worrying for you!! So in the long run you can serve the devil who hates your guts and wants you dead or you can worship a God who loves you and will give you peace in the midst of turmoil. Search for God and don't stop until you find Him!!

I would like to ask lostladyrc a question. So you think that you can ask forgiveness before you commit suicide? Well let me give you an example.(In this story the mother is playing the part of God and the boy is us) Let's say that there is a little boy eyeing a cookie jar(the sin). The mother has left a note by the jar(bible) that if you eat a cookie then you won't get to watch your favorite tv show(go to heaven) but if you do then you're going to bed(hell). She leaves and tells you how to reach her(prayer). You call her and ask her forgiveness in preparation for your disobeying her. When she gets back do you think she will let you watch your tv show? You know she loves you but she's going to send you to bed. Thinking that you can ask forgiveness before doing evil is so STUPID!! You ask forgiveness because you are truly sorry for what you have done. If you ask before time it means you're not sorry!
Also to the people that wonder how you can be sure that you go to heaven if you die suddenly. If you die when you're young you're innocent because you aren't yet independent enough to make a decision like that but once you get older and more mature God will call you to himself to be saved. It becomes a choice so you're the one who makes the decision whether you go to hell or heaven. To Chris's statement this is the answer. If you're young you're innocent. Once God starts calling you then you're responsible. You don't just wait until you die to ask God to save you. That would mean you want to live your life for yourself and you wouldn't really want to be saved. You just want "fire insurance." Being saved is when you recognize that you are a sinner and you know that you need help to make it. Then you tell that to God. You tell him you give up trying to make it on your own and want him to  take over your life. It is not a thing of willpower. It is when you give up your will and submit it to God. Sadly this concept is lost even in Church's. I read some of you are bitter at these people who claim to be Christians but just aren't. So today for all the people who might have been hurt by these "Christians" I would like to say I'm sorry. I'm sorry for any hurt that I (the church) may have caused you or if I pushed you away from God because of it. If you meet a Christian you will know whether they are Christians or not. There will be something different about them.  Good luck to any one on a mission to find God. I'll be praying for you!!!

I agree with some of you but I was taught that If you are not in the right state of mind then He will forgive you but if you are in the right set and you know it is wrong you will be punished but if you attempt suicide and then you go to a priest and ask for forgiveness truthfully then God will forgive you.

You know what I saw when I got to this forum? A war. I don't especially enjoy seeing Christians trying to find an answer to a difficult situation by attacking the way other people believe.

I understand completely that this is a very sensitive topic, and it may be somewhat stressful dealing with people who do not think the same way you do. Please, if we are all trying to find an answer to this topic of suicide, then let us find it together! Encourage one another, and take into mind what others are saying. As it says in Proverbs, "It is foolish to hate correction." Carefully think about what has been said, and look through the Bible, as well as listen to God.

I think that suicide is NOT something that will keep you from entering the gates of heaven. Or rather, it depends more on the situation. For those that kill themselves because they do not believe that God exists, and refuse to know him...they will not see heaven. I do not want to use the word "hell" because there are some people that believe that what we call "hell" really ought not to be.

However, those who commit suicide for reasons like depression and sorrow...there are many of those who really believe God exists, and that he is there. I know in my heart that God wants as many people to be with him as possible, and he will have mercy on those who have made decisions rashly because of stressful situations. I am not saying that suicide is a one-way ticket to heaven. God does not want to see you commit suicide, and if someone is truly a Christian then he/she should seek to please God. I know I do. I'd do anything possible to see him smile at me, and I know that suicide will make him unhappy.

Unfortunately, I cannot go in-depth, as I am short of time. I apologize profusely for leaving my opinion open-ended, but I hope that it stirs thoughts in our minds. I hope and pray that we may all find the answer someday. Thank you.

I need help, I feel like killing myself at least 3/4 of the year, this last month and a half has been part of that.  I do believe in God, and that he loves me very much.  But lots of people love me, friends, family ect.  But being depressed is so much more complicated then that.  I see the people that love me, but when depressed, I love nothing but death.  Because I seem to come out of depression for like 4 months out of the year, the thought of getting depressed again is fighting.  If I die I really donít want to go to hell, and life here on earth well being depressed is like being in hell. But If I die and go to hell at least I can not hurt the people who care about me.  I'm so tired of dragging the people around me into my problems.  Everyday I see the wear in there eyes. The longer Iím on this earth, the more people I meet, and the more people I meet the more people I hurt.  I donít know how much more I can take.  Depression really really hurts, body, mind and most of all my soul.  I CAN'T it any more.

As I write this I canít even think of what my question is.  I just hope God love me more then I love myself.

no, you won't be going to heaven after you kill yourself. God intended for us to be on this earth and be plentiful, he also placed us on this earth to do his work. how can we achieve that goal if we cut our lives short? if he wanted our life to end, he would do it his way, it shouldn't be done on our own hand. he placed us on the earth to go out and do good things and to follow in his likelyness....killing one's self just because obstacles in life bring us down, doesn't fulfill his will, nor does it solve anything.

If someone commit suicide and think they are going to heaven, they are wrong. God put you, me, and everyone else in this world too enjoy and be happy with our life. When people have problems in thier lives, they think killing themselves will solve the problem, but it won't. They will have even more problems when they die and go to hell from suicide. Like people say, God will never put anything on you that you can't handle.

well i can see why people say that the decision is Gods and not ours, but we forget that their a small book called the bible on earth. the bible doesn't tell us that a person that kills himself goes to hell but when you kill yourself is because you have lost faith in all that you believe and the bible does teach us that without "faith" nobody will please the Lord. So sadly yes people that commit suicide will go to hell, because there is nothing in the world that can get you so down to want to end your life bible teaches us that the trials that we go thru we are capable to overcome because God doesn't aload a trial to come to us if its more than what we can handle.

I BELIEVE YOU WILL GO TO HEAVEN IF YOU COMMIT SUICIDE!!!!!  How do you know for a fact that God had not planned for them to die this way?  They say that from the time we are born we are destined to die a certain way. Do you think we all want to die from a lingering illness like cancer or aids? Do you think Christ wanted to be crucified?  The Bible says you won't go to heaven if you murder someone.  Does that mean all of the men and women who have fought in wars and killed others to survive won't go to heaven?  Does that mean when someone is being robbed in their home at night and are shot because the husband or wife is protecting their family they won't go to heaven? GOD IS ALL FORGIVING AND MERCIFUL AND HE HAS SET A PLAN INTO MOTION FROM THE DAY YOU WERE CONCEIVED AS TO HOW YOU WOULD DIE.  YOU WERE PUT ON THIS EARTH TO FULFILL A PURPOSE, ONCE THAT PURPOSE IS FULFILLED HE WILL THEN CALL YOU HOME.

I am not saying that suicide is right or wrong only God knows but make sure you can go into this debate with an open mind as to how others feel about this topic.

For those of you who are contemplating suicide and are depressed, please seek help before trying anything.  GOD BLESS

Suicide is such a complex issue. For the Christians who are suffering deep depression and a loss of hope for life, I don't blame them for wanting to take their own life. Whether God decides to receive us into His eternal kingdom is really hard to tell. But I do believe when Christ died on the cross and established the new covenant, He also fulfilled a reinterpretation, revision of the Law, which many Jews misinterpreted. After Christ's crucifixion, some of the practices the Jewish ppl observed in the OT times were not pivotal any longer. Just like Jesus perceived Mary Magdalene, Matthew the tax-collector, and other sinners differently to certain religious experts, perhaps God will see suicide according to His just and perfect decisions. Thus, granting grace to those in need- even those who have commited suicide.

This is really sad, how can you people read a post that says that someone is thinking about committing suicide, and then still reply "if you commit suicide, you'll go to hell."  Thats messed up.  I agree 100% with lostladyrc; "if god would send you to hell for being sick then that isn't someone I want to believe in."  Which I suppose is a good thing because I don't believe in him anyway.  Think who you might be hurting before you run your mouth off about something you don't really understand.

"He who seeks to keep his life will lose it and he who loses his life will keep it."  I find the world completely non-conducive to following the spoken Word of God, Christ's teachings.  It sometimes even feels like hell here and I really pray every day for the Messiah's return.  I'd say, if you simply can't bear it anymore, make sure your motives are pure: and do it so that it benefits another and do it out of love:  "to give your life up for your brother is the highest form of love."  You know, die rescuing somebody in a fire or something similar.  
I don't think just "offing" yourself is going to earn you points in Heaven...

If you are asking yourself this question because your thinking about ending your life then 2 things are for sure. One is that you have enough faith to believe that God is real and second is that you have not yet entered that very dark place that God can no longer reach you at. Before you get there consider this, where did that question come from and why are you asking it? There are so many possibilities. For instance "the power of prayer". People in your life who love you may be seeing you in pain and praying for you but you don't realize it or in your state of mind you may be crying out to God in your heart without realizing that words are not always needed. Didn't God create us with emotions so he surely must be able to feel them in us and understand. As your asking that question could it be that God is whispering in your ear, answering the prayers, giving you the grace to find your own answer. You want to go to heaven. Your afraid of what your thinking of doing. You can't stand the pain of life but the thought of nothing changing or getting worse  with death is unbearable. If you except God is real then accept the one fundamental truth that people of all religions agree upon. He loves you more than you will ever comprehend in your human life. The way your feeling isn't your fault and before you cross that line, try to push yourself to reach out to someone, anyone for help. God's with you right now so use his love and his strength to move you away from that dark place.

If you are still reading these replies (I know it's been a while since you asked the question), I'd just like to say that I don't have all the answers, but please don't kill yourself if that is what you are considering.  It won't help anyone and it certainly won't make God happy.  I know what it is like to feel isolated from the world, but God loves you and he wants you to get to know him personally.  He has a plan for you, as he has a plan for everyone.  And I'm sure that that plan does not include killing yourself.  Whatever you may have done in the past is in the past if you ask him for forgiveness.  You can't change what has happened, but you can ask forgiveness and move on.  No one is better off without you.  In fact, you probably enrich more lives than you know.  

If you're not thinking of killing yourself, then that's great, and I don't mean to preach to you, but if you are, please consider that someone does care about you even if it doesn't seem like it.

I have thought of sucide but i did not do it. Once you die God will judge you and you will have Jesus to help judge fairly. Jesus came here to earth and knows what it is like to be tempted. He died for us. He wanted to save us. Because of that you can repent while you're here on earth. At one time he felt everything that EVERYONE is going through here right now.If you just kill yourself it's up to God. If you did it because that was the only thing left to do. There was NO way that ANYONE could help you. Why give up your life when there is so much to live for?? Really, check out LDS.ORG and it will help. Click on search. It helped me.

Hello folks, I've been troubled by the idea of suicide lately.   IN fact I've been contemplating lots of things about religion lately, and it strikes me odd, why do people think that suicides go to hell?  Why don't they go to heaven?  Though I am religious, I don't think the answer is based on religion much at all.  I'm not a big believer in evolution or Darwinism, but I think the idea that humans are "gene machines" can make good sense out of the topic of punishment/reward.  And if you think about it, We, as humans are like biological machines, we are programmed to survive, and live and thrive!  Everything we think, and feel has to do with our emotions.  And what are emotions? messages from our subconscious minds.  And what is the subconscious mind?  a complex organ that is constructed from bits of information called DNA or genes.  What is DNA?  little strands of information that have a desire to live and reproduce, and that hold all the information on how we (humans) are built, and how we function and operate.  If this little thing (DNA) builds us, and wants to live for as long as possible, then it only makes sense that it would program us to also want to live as long as possible, since when we die the gene we are made out of dies with us.

I believe that the human brain is a gargauntuanly complex system of on off switches (like a computer) the words "right, or wrong" sound similar to "on off", its gotta be either yes or no, or neither.  Are we controlled by a "free will"? I don't think so at all.  Choices are controlled by a conscious mind (what we really are)  and I've been thinking that the conscious mind is like a computer too (not a free willed being). I think the conscious mind is just like a computer in that it operates off of a system of "on off" switches, but, instead, the word "on" is replaced with reward, and the word "off" is replaced with punishment (or "pleasure, pain") When you feel "good" or something is pleasurable, I think that its your brains way of saying "yes do this" "this is good" "on on on" "this has survival benefits", and just the opposite when you feel pain, your brain is letting you know that what is happening is "bad" "off off off" "do not do this" "this hurts our chances for survival"  ect.  I suppose I'm basically describing what I think they call the "pleasure principle"  

(I hope everybody's still with me here, I can get confusing when I talk about this stuff)

But what I'm saying is that we are like computers in that we want to feel good and we don't want to feel bad, just like a computer does the "yes" and avoids the "no" according to its program.  I"m saying that every choice we make isn't based on some mysterious "free will" but on our pursuit of pleasure, and our desire to minimize pain.  And that every single choice you make is what you prefer the most at the time you make it (considering every possibility) the choice you make is the one you believe will bring you the most pleasure, and avoid you the most pain.



So how the heck does what I"m saying have to do with Suicide, and the believe that people who kill themselves go to hell?  Well, it's a more specific topic under the category of Punishment/reward.  I"ll type about that for a bit.  If you believe in the idea that our choices are determined by the pursuit of pleasure, and the will to minimize pain, then punishment, and rewarding people for their choices makes perfect sense.  Think about the brain for a bit, and what pleasure and pain is.  When you feel pleasure (ex. bite into a scrumptiously juicy burger) since eating has survival benefits, your brain is programmed to reward you with "good" feelings to keep you eating.  These good feelings are delivered by a chemical called serotonin.  The more serotonin in your brain, the better you feel. This is a natural "reward" system.  I'm, sure everybody can think of several natural punishments a he he he.  You stub your toe "ouch"!    If you've ever heard the phrase "Pain teaches lessons no scholar can", and have felt pain before then you know what I"m saying.  So then what is, the punishment/reward we know so well.  Well example of reward would be dessert for eating your vegetables, or a pat on the back for doing the "right" thing, presents on Christmas morning for being "good" all year round (the list goes on) The best example is probably Heaven for being a good person all lifetime long. And then the opposite of that is sticks, and coal instead of presents on Christmas morn for being "bad" all year round, no dessert for not eating your vegetables, and Hell for being "bad" all lifetime long.

What the heck is the point of punishing people, and rewarding people for their choices?  Though emotionally, it makes sense, intuitively it makes sense, I asked that question trying to find a logical reason for it, and I think I've found a possible answer.  
    The reason for punishment is deterrent.  Deterrent is the word for the way  punishment keeps somebody from making the same choice again in the future.  So why do some people deserve punishment for bad choices and others don't.  The people that we don't feel deserve the punishment are the mentally handicapped, or the insane.  Why don't they deserve to be punished...because punishing them has no survival benefits.  Punishing people who had no idea what they were doing is going to create no deterrent effect, so it's a waste of time and energy to do it, so our subconscious mind tells us its wrong to punish retarded people.  So then what's the deal with choices?  Well, remember I said that every choice you make is the option you prefer to do the most (the option that maximizes pleasure, and minimizes pain) there are exceptions to this, like if you're too stupid to know what you're doing, or if you're under the influence drugs/alcohol, crazy (really depressed ect), then there is no preference with their choices, they're not clearly preferring one option over another, so punishing, or rewarding them for the bad and good things they do has no deterrent effect.  Thats' why we say people who kill themselves who were drunk or really depressed don't go to hell, but the people who kill themselves thinking they're escaping their pain do, We use the idea of hell to scare people out of committing suicide.  Because if people just killed themselves whenever they felt bad then that would be bad news for the gene, because survival is increased with numbers, and suicide lowers  numbers.  Weather or not Heaven and Hell really exist, the belief in these places creates the deterrent effect that benefits survival, not the actual existence of them.  Because if you fear hell, and crave heaven, then your choices will adhere to those beliefs.

I don't know....just some thoughts...too much to explain all in one sitting, but I hope maybe this has helped.

I cannot comprehend your situation as I have never been in it.  I struggle with witnessing to a friend because his father committed suicide.  My friend knows that God is real, but he has a problem accepting it because if he accepts it, he must accept the possibility that his Father is in hell.  

I can however tell you that none of us deserves heaven.  We are all guilty: "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."  God has already judged us, and we have all been found wanting.  

If you say that you do not choose to believe in a God that sends people to hell, then you are saying that you decide who God is.  You are saying that you are the potter and that He is the clay.  This is idolatry and contrary to the second of the Ten Commandments.  

Who of us can say: I have not lied; I have not stolen; I have not coveted.  Who of us can say that we have kept the first commandment: You shall have no other gods before Me.  

None of us can claim our works as our key to heaven.  The bible says "For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ's" (Philippians 2:21)

Without faith our lives have no meaning and no future.  God knew when he created this world that men were wicked at heart.  He knew that many would be lost to hell, and he knew that His Son would be the substitution for our sin.

Many people will tell you to accept Christ because you will receive the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, etc.  And that through this love you will be freed from the burden of possible suicide.  But that is not what I am telling you.  Christians are prosecuted and reviled.  The Bible states, "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  Rejoice and be glad, because great is you reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you." (Mathew 5:11, 12) Love, joy, peace, patience, etc come through the spirit and doing God's will, not from simply accepting Christ.

The bottom line is Christ died so you can be freely forgiven of sin and freed from its consequences:  "The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

If you want to be freed from Hell, ask Christ to forgive you, and start to live for him not for yourself.  He can use you.

I don't believe that any healthy Christian would commit suicide.
Anyone that commits suicide most likely is not a true believer, but in that possibilty that they are, it will definetely goto Heaven, and they will have to answer to God for their sin; with the lost of heavenly rewards.
An ignorant or incredibly depressed Christian may think of taking his own life to be with God, but this is incredibly selfish because they have work to do here on earth.  

Do not tell new belivers that its okay to commit suicide because its not.  Its easier to tell them you will goto Hell, because anyone that ponders about taking their own life, probably is not saved.  

Recall when Satan tempted Jesus to throw himself down, for it says that the He will rescue you.

Jesus responded by saying do not put the Lord, your God to the test.

Unless you believe that Suicide is sinning against the Holy Spirit, which is the unforgivable sin, it will not lead to Hell.
Also by saying that suicide will take you out of God's favor and remove you from salvation you are calling God a liar.  
And theres always a risk that the one that killed themselves was never truly saved in the first place, to commit such a selfish act.  If they are truly saved, and trust that Christ has paid for all their sins, then they will goto Heaven, not Hell.  Because trusting in Christ, alone, nothing, not even suicide can seperate you from God.  If you believe that you need to repent for every sin you commit, than this is not true Salvation, but rather saved through works.  That you need your own maitience of repetance and works to merit salvation and you do not truly believe in the full and finished work of Christ on the cross.

Many Christians say you will goto hell, because suicide is a very bad thing, and a preventive measure must be taken.  Site one part in scripture that says that Suicide leads to hell.  Whatever sin we commit, Christ has already atoned for it.  He died for all our past, present and future sins, and therefore a true believer that happens to kill themself out of overwhelming grief, sins against the temple, yet is forgiven.

Therefore those that commiting suicide will probably goto hell, because no healthy Christian would do such an act, but given this supposedly impossible condition that:

They were chosen by God before the foundation of the world

The same question can be posed is if you deny Christ, do you lose your Salvation?  Certainly not.  For the true believer will come into repetance.  Whereas assurance of salvation can be lost, salvation itself cannot be lost.

35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36As it is written:
   "For your sake we face death all day long;
       we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered."[12] 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[13] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35-38)

Look to Scripture yourself, and don't take my word for it.  Don't merely believe what will make you feel better either, but continue to live a life for the Glory of God, and do not end it before your time. God Bless!

Suicide is very misunderstood.  I consider myself a fairly conservative Christian, and also very Biblical.   I have read the Bible through twice, and not once did I see anything condemning people who commit suicide.  God said that the only unforgivable sin is when you turn your back on the holy spirit (in other words, you deny God until you die). that is the ONLY unforgivable sin.  i understand peoples arguments like "well if he really believed in god he wouldnt commit suicide"  those people do not understand mental health.  suicide is brought forth by a disease, and just because it is self inflicted does not make it a choice.  when someone is that sick, they lose their ability to have a choice. it says in isaiah that god judges people when they are old enough to make a decision....in other words capable of making a decision.  a person who commits suicide is not capable of making choices because they are very ill.  god does not codemn people who die of heart attacks, because their bodies fail.   so he does not codemn those who's minds fail.  in fact, in most cases the mental disease comes from something physical and chemical.  another common argument is that people who commit suicide "dont trust god" so they go to hell.  honestly, does any of us totally trust God?  we try to, but arent there areas you just struggle with?  there is no checklist to get into heaven, it is a personal thing and god judges peoples hearts.   also, the whole thing like "you must be forgiven for every sin you commit or you go to hell"  does not make sense.  otherwise we would all go to hell because we cannot possibly even know all  the sins we commit.  it isnt like a checklist like "ok i committed a sin, now i am forgiven for it so i can go to heaven."  no it doesnt work like that. gods grace is bigger than that. so i really believe christians who commit suicide go to heaven because it is a DISEASE!  not a choice

My son just recently committed suicide at the age of 14. I was the one to find him and was devistated to think he would not go to heaven because of taking his life, because I had been raised that this was the only sin that was unforgiven. I have been speaking to alot of Ministers and they have said let the children come to God and that in Gods eyes he was still a child and that he was also not in the right state of mind. The morning of his suicide he had asked about going to heaven and said he wanted to go there because life was too hard, and he was having alot of feelings that he knew was not right, but he did not know how to get them out.So I ask you all. Do you believe my child has gone to heaven because this is something i struggle with daily and I pray to God to give me the answers I so desperately need. Thanks for your input!

I hope for my own sake and everyone else that has committed suicide that we go go to heaven. Unfortunately life can sometimes be too hard and yet we cannot explain why. For me self harm is a way to feel again and suicide would be the ultimate relief of my life. Only for my families sake do I pray to stay another day but for myself, I pray to be gone yesterday. But in answer to the question do we go to heaven when we commit suicide??? God could not possibly condemn mentally ill people to an eternity of more suffering and pain in hell. So hopefully we may join our families in heaven and forget our painfull life on earth.

     As all christians know, God is all-knowing.  Thus, he knows our future, our past, and our present.  To say this, means that he already knows whether we will commit suicide or not.  To think that God would condemn us from birth upon knowing our future, is a blind acusation.  Here's why.
     God is also benevolent.  That means that he acts upon the greater good of his people and wishes for them to prosper.  He wants the best for us, not the worst.  Some christians limit his abilities(forgiveness) to text out of a man-made book.  

God is more, than any of us will ever know.

I would like to say that once you commit suicide you are bound for Hell.  That is a harsh thing to say, but I believe in my heart of hearts you will go to Hell.  Unlike crossing a street and getting hit by a car or someone shooting you.  This incidents are not at your hand, you did not make that choice to get hit by the car nor did you choose to get shot.  But like it was said before that once you commit suicide how can you ask for forgiveness?  That is like me going into a bank to rob it and before I go into the bank I ask God to forgive me, if I really wanted forgiveness from God then I wouldn't do it.  That is like me going back on my word immediately and obviously I did not mean what I said if I went and did it anyway.

In light of all of this GOD has the final say so and it is truly up to Him to decide.  But as a Christian one must act like they know, for He is nothing to play with.

Suicide is only a permanent solution to a temporary problem as mentioned before.

The first thing is to get help, there are plenty of people and organisations that WANT to help.  Everybody feels like a burden at some point in there lives, I have thought of suicide many times in the past but prayed and as hard as it was at the time I have always come through the struggle and one of the things that helped no end was councelling.  After bad moments in my life and a boyfriend who commited suicide I now live in Australia with a beautiful partner who loves me for who I am and a beautiful 6 month old baby girl, if my life can turn around so can yours, you need faith in the lord and yourself, like I said there are MANY people who want to help and the lord is one of them, you might not see things get better straight away but they WILL in time I promise.  As for going to heaven, I belive that the lord knows your heart more than anybody, knows your feelings and the situation surrounding everything and of course will be merciful I am sure he would not punish anybody who was so down they felt they had no way out, I definatly do not think he would send you to hell for it NO WAY ( that is my opinion).  The fact of the matter is there IS a way out so let the Lord help you.

May God Bless all your lives with happiness.

Well I dont really know where you will go if you commit suicide. My daddy commited suicide a couple of months ago. I pray that our Lord will forgive him bc i know my daddy wasnt in his right mind. See my mom and my daddy had just got a divorce and my daddy couldnt handle it and locked himslef in his car in our garage. But yet my Aunt is a millon-air, my daddy put on his will to give the money to the kids and for my Aunt to do so. Well, my Aunt kept all my daddys money and my mom, sister, and myself got kicked out of our house and we had to buy a new 1 and my Aunt sold our old one and took my dog and my horses that are worth 2 million dollars each away and there a 4 of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so i dont know if you go to Heaven if you kill yourself or not I SURE HOPE YOU DO!! I want and pray that I'll see my daddy again!!!!!

I think that you will go to hell! You cannot sit there and b like God im gonna kill myself even though you created me and please forgive me for killing myself. NO!! I'm sorry but i blieve God is an all loving all caring God but u ruin HIS creation that he made so you could get out of this HELL and go to a better place. He sent HIS son to earth and let ppl kill HIS son just for us! US that kill people that hate people and kill ourselves. If you think this world is hell and want to kill yourself to get out of it your wrong because you r going to a much worse place that your skin will burn forever and when you get tired you are not allowed to sleep when your hungry youll have to starve but you cant die again you have to deal with that all the time. I dont want to go there and for the ppl that feel like killing thereselves i dont want you guys to go either. Even though i never met you ppl i luv you 2 death and dont want you to burn foreva you! Yes like yall sed once your saved your always saved but i think that that is wrong. I think that if you party on the weekends cuss all the time and go to church on Sunday it says in the bible "if you live a lukewarm life i will vomit you out of my mouth" it is in Revelation if u dont believe me!! I love you guys if you are thinking about suicide plz email me or find som help

If you have Jesus living in your heart and you are a Christian it is impossible for you to commit suicide. 1 Cor. 6:19-20 and 1 Cor. 3:16-17 talk about your body being God's temple and to take care of it. So whatever method someone chooses to commit suicide, you destroy God's temple. You can be "good" enough but it won't get you into heaven. Heaven and Hell are real. For those of you that aren't sure, it wouldn't be all bad if you chose to believe in God and be saved. If you die and you do go to heaven you have gained something, however, if you die and there isn't a heaven or hell your not missing much.

Well, I think everyone is wrong. No one has a right or wrong answer. If god really wanted you to know if you would go to heaven or hell for doing suicide, then it would of been in the bible. The reason why he didn't put it in the bible is because he didn't want to create chaos. You people are arguing over something when all of you are wrong. No one knows why there is all the other planets and we are only using one, and no one knows for sure where you will go if you do suicide.

All the answers are based on human assumptions and emotions, killing ones self is not his right to take, and as such is a mortal sin. Whether God sends someone to hell for committing a small sin like glaring at a girl or stealing a cookie, will be up to him ultimately, and we can only hope we have the faith of a mustard seed. Otherwise we'll all go to hell. Yay.

Suicide And Other Comforts

  I pace, alone
In a place for the dead
Overcome by woe
And here, I've grown
So fond of dread
That I swear it's heaven

Oh sweet Mary,
Dressed in gray
Roll back the stone

With these words scrawled in a severed hand
Tears fall like shards of glass that bend
In rivers, like sinners
Swept with me to join the damned

A darkened sky
The day that laughter died
Fell swiftly into night
And stayed within Her sight
Staring at the knife
Oh God, how easy now to sacrifice
My life, to have Her with me

So farewell to distant thunder
Those inept stars I've worshipped under
Fall farther, their Father
Lies in wait in flames below
Whilst my love, a blood red flower
Calls to me from verdant bowers

Graveside, I cry
Please save me from this Hell I know

A darkened sky
The day that laughter died
Fell swiftly into night
And stayed within Her sight
Staring at the knife
Oh God, how easy now to sacrifice
My life, to have Her with me

An eye for an eye as espied in the bible
My faith is lost to the burning of idols
One less cross to press upon the survival
Of this lorded agony

And I, (much as I have tried
To bury Her from mind,
Fate's tourniquet was tied, when She died...)
Still sense Her presence so divine
Lithe arms about my throat
like pining swans entwined
Footfalls at nightfall close to mine

Suicide is a tried and tested formula for release

I snatch Her whisper like the wind through cedars
See Her face in every natural feature
Midst the mist and sleepy hollows of fever...
With glee deceiving me

Suicide is a tried and tested formula for release

I hear Her voice from where the grave defies Her
Sirensong to sing along, no finer
Suicide notes, harmonized in a minor
Strike a chord with misery

No light nor reef
No unsinkable of romance keeps me
Safely from the stormy seas
Now drowning, resounding
Death-knells pound my dreams
Unthinkable to dredge through this
Listless and lonely winter freeze

A darkened sky
This day hereafter dies
Falls swiftly into night
And stays within my sight
Staring at the knife
Oh God, what ease it was to sacrifice
My life, to have Her with me

No more a victim of crusade
Where souls are strung from moral palisades
I slit my wrist and quickly slip away...
I journey now on jewelled sands
Beneath a moon to Summerlands
To grace Her lips with contraband
The blaze once in my veins

(if you don't have friends  im always here) there are actully thing that chemically wrong with the brain chemicals which makes people think they need to died.  its really all a matter of circumstances. you can really blame anyone for committing this act.

Do you all think that the main person who asked the original question, "Do you still go to heaven even when you commit suicide," read all of the answers that all of you gave him/her? That is a lot to read. Especially if your depressed. Also, God is God, so don't speak for him. Mostly we can not judge anyone for ourselfs, we are not God. So please don't tell anyone they are going to hell. That is how some Christians scare unsaved people away from God.

I WAS in Millwood for almost two weeks. yeah i felt like i had no one to talk to but really i was feeling like no one could understand what i was going through.you see i lost my nephew to murder and he was only 13 months and then my dad lefted me but even before that he was abusive to me and my family and then my mom turned to where she would get  just as bad as my dad but now that my dad was gone we didn't have anyone to talk to and sure you can ask your friends but most of them will tell you what you want to hear. I felt like i was a no body. So about 4 days before Christmas 2004 i try to kill my self by cutting if someone had not walked in when they did then no telling where i might be right now.

First of all I want to say that I think that even thinking of commiting suicide makes God sad. Some of us get to that point though, where we feel it neccessary that nothing good will come of us staying on this earth so we take matters into our own hands. Is this wrong? Yeah. But can a person still get to heaven? Who knows? No one here has a for sure answer. In the Bible it never says "So if you commit suicide you go straight to hell." But it also doesn't directly say that we go straight to heaven. But I think that the saving point is that if a person asks Jesus to be their personal Savior, God holds to His promise that you can never do anything bad enough to make Him turn His back on you. Now, that does not mean that I think anyone makes it into heaven. What I'm saying is that I think that if you have Jesus you can't ever do anything to lose Him.
Oh and to the people that say they don't want to believe in that kind of God, just remember that not every thing you hear is correct about God. And also not everyone who says they beileve in God really does. If you want an accurate dipection of God look to His word, the Bible. That's the best place to find answers. And to those of you that are feeling depressed I'm mostly in the same boat as you, hoping that the straight up answer to this is yes. But, the best advice I can give you is what my best friend told me, PRAY. The only way for you to know what to do on a personal level is to pray to your loving father, because trust me, he is the greatest conselor of all time, even the bible says so. If, anyone strongely disagrees with me please correct me. I am only twelve. And I loved the piece that Nathan Ellis sent in. That was some pretty deep stuff.

It is but once to die and then the Judgement..[Scripture] There is the Judgement Seat of Christ [Judgement of Believers] and the Great White Throne of Judgement. [Judgement of Unbelievers]

Once we are SAVED, we are SAVED!

When we are SAVED we inherit the Kingdom of Heaven and everything in it. But there are two judgements yet awaiting. One for the SAVED and one for the LOST.

Those who are SAVED will reap REWARDS [CROWNS] in heaven. Those who are LOST will not.

But if we are SAVED and backslide, then we forfeit our REWARDS [CROWNS] but not our SALVATION.

Those who are SAVED but do not walk according the Jesus' teachings will not inherit their REWARDS [CROWNS] but will keep their SALVATION and still inherit the Kingdom of GOD.

There is no SCRIPTURE I know of that directiy states that supports suicide victims as perishing. This is not an open ended ticket to end ones life.

The bible says that anyone who believes in Jesus surely shall be saved. Ephesians tells us that we are saved by grace and not of our works lest we boast and that once we are saved we are sealed by the Holy Spirit and no one can break that seal but God Himself. Why would GOD go through the trouble of sacrificing His own Son and sealing us with the Holy Spirit if the seal could be broken. It cannot. The book of John or St. John opens by saying that "In the beginng there was GOD and the Word was with GOD and the Word was GOD. Notice Word here is capitalized. The New Testament was originally written in Greek and the translation for Word is Logos and the translation for Logos is Jesus Christ. So, In the beginning there was God and the Word was with God and the Word was God means that Jesus Christ is GOD! GOD manifested Himself as Jesus meaning GOD came down Himself and died on the cross for our sins. That is how much He loves each and every one of us. So if GOD is willing to die for your life and mine, why take our life. If we bear the right attitude in the midst of our trials and tribulations, God will turn it around. That trial time is know as "trial of faith."

The bible also says that God turns all tragedy around for the glory of those who love Him. He takes the most worst circumstances and turns them around so that He may be glorified. If we stay in Him in our faith, hearts and do as Jesus taught and open our eyes and our hearts and not our minds, we will find that we really do have more strength and courage than we know. God promises not to give us more than we can handle. I look at the War in Iraq and Afghanistan, and wonder sometimes, but again with prayer, the right attitude and faith, we have the hope and can endure and God promises to scatter our enemies. Our enemies are just not in Iraq and Afghanistan, they are everyday annoyances, things that hinder us, bother us, troubled times. Ephesians 6:10 says that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against rulers and authorities of darkness. Life is a spiritual battle. We are attacked by evil spiritual forces everyday. GOD is not doing this to us, the enemy satan is. He would love nothing more than for us all to take our lives. He knows his days are numbered and what lies in store for us if we endure and prevail this life. The Word of God states that Faith, is the substance of things hoped for but not yet seen. You get in your car and expect to arrive at your destination, that is faith. We all have faith and demonstrate it everyday of our lives. Every waking second and moment we utilize our faith. We could not achieve one single task in life without faith for we have expectations. How can we expect to achieve, arrive, deliver, have or do anything without faith. The evidence of things hoped for but not yet seen. Suicide is not the answer, Jesus is the Answer. He paid it all, He knows it all, He's seen it all. He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He is with us all the time. He is on the throne and in control of all we are enduring. All we have to do is have faith, hope, believe. It's all true and I encourage you to stick it out. So many times people have committed suicide and just around the corner was the answer they had been praying, hoping for. The answer may come before the end of your day, before the beginning of your new morning, next week, by a phone call, a visitor, a friend, a stranger. Jesus said sorrow lingers for a little while, but joy comes in the morning. Please hold on, please have hope and believe. You believed in this site and had faith people would respond. Did they? Have they? Is this not all the living proof. You are living proof at how good God really is. God said..This is how much I love you..as high as the heavens are above the earth. As far as the East is from the West I forgive your sins and remember them no more. Just ask Me and I will do it. There is nothing so bad that I won't forgive says the Lord. Did you know there is a Scripture in the bible that says, You can take my name in vain and I will forgive you, but the blaspemy of the Holy Spirit I will never forgive. To deny Christ. That is the only thing He won't forgive. But if you didn't know Christ then you haven't yet denied Him. Every other sin is forgivable.

It is but once to die and then the Judgement..what Judgement do you prefer. I prefer eternal life and not eternal separation from GOD. Best wishes and God bless you and give you strength and courage to stand firm against the battles of life. I know you can do it darling, please, please try. Take good care and please be well. You ar loved by God and by His Church. I love you and will pray for you all. Please, have faith and be encouraged. I know you can do it. I am living proof!

Romans 8:1-2 says, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." Ephesians 2:8-9 says, "For it is by GRACE you have been saved, through FAITH and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by WORKS so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." You are not committed into heaven because of your good deeds just as you are not comdemned to hell because of your sins. A sin is a sin and Jesus died for our since 2000 years ago....our sins have already been forgiven if we have asked forgiveness for them....even if they are not specific enough by saying "please forgive me for committing suicide." most people commit suicide at the spur of the moment and most Christians that commit suicide are in need of physical or mental help. God does not change nor will his word.

But from my view of life, nothing can be worse then it. people say that God made this world for us to be happy, but if this world is so good then why is their so many people killing. I think that life is hell and the only thing God can give us when our time is up is everlasting life. Know matter what we've done.

You will go to heaven if you commit suicide if you are saved!!! If you are saved, you can murder a million people and still go to heaven with the salvation of God, so why would it be diffrent if it was your life taken? My friends, which are new christians, currently believe that you will go to hell for suicide because its your last sin and you didnt repent. but what if you had just killed a man, or had a lustful though or something, and then breathed your last breath without repenting? would it be diffrent? according to what they said, no. but if what they said is true, Jesus was lying. He said that through him, you are saved. and the only thing you can do to fall out of glory is forsake God. Gods love is UNCONDITIONAL and no matter what you do, he WILL forgive you, even if you dont repent after the sin, if you are saved. And under what cirumstances would you be willing to kill yourself? If you forsake God and kill yourself, yes. you will go to hell. if you arent saved and kill yourself, you will go to hell, but thats the same with any form of death for the unsaved. but if you are saved, you will go to heaven. and what if you were forced to kill yourself? if someone would kill your family if you didnt? is God not understanding? God, the Alpha and Omega, the omnipotent and the creator would understand. please! do not doubt the glory of God!!! do not let lucifer into your mind and let him plant thoughts! God loves you unconditionaly, and would forgive you, no matter what! If God is any less than ever loving, omnipotent and ever forgiving, thats not a god i want to worship. yet i know in my heart, i could commit suicide a thousand times over and still walk golden roads of heaven, without the hellfire even being able to warm my face, and the smell of brimstone even touching my nostrils. that is the glory and forgivness of God, and by the blood of Jesus, he shall not forsake us.

But also, for any contemplating suidice, i implore you, SEEK HELP!!! you may feel that no one loves you, but i know one who does. JESUS!!! seek Him and you shall find Him! Pray for salvation, and he shall give it to you! Please! Think about what you are doing! and Repent!!!

Umm, our class today in school was kind of having this argument...I said that if you commit suicide while saved that you do go to Heaven...Everyone else disagreed.

My arguments:
1) When saved, Jesus'sblood covers you. You cannot lose salvation. Ever.

2) I'm not saying that if you're saved you're free to do anything and everything that is a sin and still go to Heaven. There's no doubt in my mind you'll still go to Heaven, but there will be consequences for your sins.

Theirs:
1) If you were saved in the first place, you wouldn't have commited suicide - Wrong, all humans sin.

2) Commiting suicide is the only unforgivable sin - Wrong, the only unforgivable sin is denying the Holy Spirit.  

Can someone point me out where I could possibly be wrong here? I mean the Bible DOES say you can never lose your salvation... And it also says if you're saved you will go to Heaven...Explain please.

Do you know what its like to feel that bad? If you dont then you shouldn't have said anything in this forum because i'vebeen suicidal for a long time because of severe depression even though im a christian, and i feel empathy and sadness for you that you would think that thats where suicidal people end up when they end their lives. I believe that if the person was a believer in god, and a decent person who wasnt evil theres no way u can end up in hell

And my theory is that when you are in a state of deppresion, something so dark takes over you and most of the time you don't know what you are doing and don't have any hope left at all, i know this because i have been there. And i think that those type of people are in need the most of Gods love and mercy. So why would he send them to hell? God judges your heart. and everyone inturprets the bible in different ways, so for anyone to come out and say " you will go to hell" is wrong!!! you and i are not the judge, God is and on the judgement day we will all find out, untill then live your life, pray and make a difference.

My first attempt of suicide was at the age of 8 years old and it consisted of me trying to suffocate myself. Little did I know you would only pass out... but I tried anyways. I always tried to escape this world and have been for years. I am 19 now - I consider myself right with God. I've talked to many counselors and many preachers trying to get insights or opinions on suicide. The only thing that could ever slow me down was the thought of hey... I might goto Hell. As you can see I'm still wishy washy since I'm still here. I lean towards one thing the most and that is like a few others said... once saved - always saved. As someone stated before... take a Preacher man... one who sins not even 10% of the average person and he dies in a car wreck instantly but didn't have time to ask for forgiveness - he's going to hell? I think not. All of you who think you will goto hell for suicide I must say you are nothing more than simple minded. Someone else above me also stated something along the lines of "God put you here for a reason it's not your choice to take your own life" Speaking of how it is not right... Who's to say you're purpose wasn't to commit suicide? Now this may sound radical somewhat but look at the big picture. Suicide doesn't only affect the person who died but the people who cared for thee whom died. Pain is KEY in this world. If you can weather the storm you will become a stronger person. There is nothing "negative" about suicide in the long run. Take Jesus dying on the cross to forgive us of our sins - now... gonna tell me it couldn't have happened another way? I think he died on a cross to do just that... forgive us for our sins BUT to also prove a point. Death to us is everything... it's the end of all you know. I think there was more to his death... Anyhow0w what I am trying to get at though - he sacrificed himself for this world. He died so the people in this world can have a chance. Now, You've got a suicidal kid who feels he does nothing but wrong. Suicidal people aren't crazy and just "depressed" - depression isn't a disease it's an emotion. They accept reality and they have seen/felt things in this world that many couldn't even begin to imagine. They know what it feels like to be alone because they were outkasted as kids and never had anything in their mind. NO ONE can look at this world as a whole with the people who die everyday and find anything "happy and ra ra cheery" about it. Accept the fact that you are living in HELL. The only difference between this Earth and Hell is that it's not burning...YET - if you've read your bible though you can easily see... once this Earth catches on fire we're having Hell... everything it is said and described to be. I ask you all this... WHY WOULDN'T YOU WANT TO BE ANYWHERE OTHER THAN HERE!!!? And last but not least overall ... if you can look down upon a man who wants to commit suicide and say they're going to Hell... I pity you personally. They're doing in their mind what is BEST for the world... they're sacrificing their life - all they have ever known... because they don't want to hurt people as we do and become another statistic. They hold my respect -

in the bible it says that saul took his on life under the circumstances that his life would be agonizing and painfully drawn out to a gruesome death is he hadn't. In this case yes he went to heaven. Also in the bible it says that whom ever is saved in him shall not die but have eternal life. no matter what. while you may not receive all that people who have done great things in Christ receive, you will still have eternal life in him.

We are all so quick to ask if this one sin will send us to Hell. Doesn't the bible not say that the penalty for all sin is Death? Why arean'twe worried that when we tell our mom we will be back by 10, and we stroll in at 11 that we are going to hell? Does the Bible not say that we have all fallen short of the glory of God? Does it not say that Jesus is the key to forgivness for all sin? "Oh, but if you kill yourself, you can't ask afterward for forgiveness." Well, what if I told my mom I was comming home at 10, planned to be home at 11, and was killed at 10:30? Is Jesus not still the ultimate sacrifice for my sin? We are completely forgiven. The Bible tells us this. No where does it say that we are partially forgiven.

No. A person that commits suicide is taking a life, their own, which is a sin. As you cannot repent of your sins after you have died, you are condemned to hell. As not wanting to put harsh words against the "Born again" Christians, just because you are a Christian does not mean you will not go to hell. Any person could say they were a Christian but still go to hell. If you are a "Born again" Christian who says that they will go to heaven when they die no matter what because Jesus took all of our sins away, if you sin and do not repent of your sins, you will still go to hell, depending on the circumstance. Only those who are completely sinless may enter into the gates of heaven. Suicide is a sin, and as you die from suicide, there is no time to repent, and you go straight to hell. Sorry, no leverage there unless God wills it. But then again, none of us know what God's will is, so, i guess i may be wrong.

I've been searching for some consolation and an answer to whether I will go to hell or not if I kill myself. I'm a spirit filled Christain but nothing makes me want to live. I like what MAR said most, but there is something stopping me...if there was a trillionth of a chance that I'd go to hell I couldnt take it and that's why I haven't...I just want this to end.. It seems like knowing the truth makes it so much more unbearable because I can't get over being an addict and I can't kill the guilt of being a screw up...if you believe, please pray for me

I was totally dumbfounded when I logged on and read Help's response to the Heaven/Hell suicide question.  I was in a total state of shock because that is exactly how I feel. I have had complete strangers coming up to me for advice since I was about 10 or 11. At the age 14 I had a man come up to me carrying a shotgun under his trench coat. He was going to kill his brother because he was sleeping with his wife.I told him that the brother would be dead, he'd be in jail, his mother would hate him and the wife would laugh and lie and said that he killed his brother because he was a jealous maniac who suspected her of sleeping with everyone that she came in contact with.He threw the shotgun into the sewer and said that he would take my advice. My advice was to cancel all the credit cards, close out the bank accounts, change the locks on the doors, change everything over into his name only, set all of her belongings onto the lawn,go to her job and take the car out of the parking lot, etc. When I help people in life it's not to get a big bonus or accolades but could I at least get someone to listen to me and to help me when I need it! People in my life who claim to love me put me through HELL! People please don't say then don't deal with them. One of these persons is my sister and if I don't play it her way I don't get to see my niece and nephew. The last time she threw a fit I didn't see or talk to my niece for one year and at the time my sister was pregnant with my nephew. She said in a very nasty letter that I could not call, visit, send gifts, send correspondents, etc to my niece or my nephew once he was born. This was the second time she has done something like this. Her reasons for doing this, this time is because she claimed that I stole a CD of hers. She left it over my house 2 years prior. I forgot and thought it was my own, I own 326 CD's(SOR-freaking-RY). Even our Grandmother's dying didn't soften her. She called my son an animal at the repast.You would think by this story that we are both still really young and that we don't know jack about life, guess again. My sister will be 30 this year and I am 34. This happened year before last and my sister just started talking to me and my son this year! My son is now eleven years old and he was also banned from contact with my niece and future nephew. This is only one really prime example of the way my life sucks.  Life is a one star hotel and I am really ready to check out!

I believe in God with all my heart.  My faith in humanity has been lost however.  I have been suffering on this planet for over 15 years, i think it's long enough.  I don't believe any one thing will get me into heaven, and i don't believe any one sin will keep me out.  I praise the Lord, and thank Him for His son Jesus Christ, i may curse myself and kill myself, but  I will never ever blame God for it, I will never say He gave up on me.  I fully admit, i am giving up on myself, and it is a sin i am sorry for, but i can't take the pain anymore.  

If you aren't thinking about commiting suicide, then start getting Closer to God now, before you loose hope in yourself later.

I believe He will let me into Heaven, Just because certain religious taboo's such as Catholic belief that Suicide is a ticket to hell, I don't believe it is true.  (Nothing against Catholics, i have a true friend in Christ who is Catholic)  

Works can't get you into heaven, and i believe they can't keep you out.  before I kill myself, i will tell God that I do not blame Him or curse Him, i will thank Him for giving me life, and apologize i am not strong enough in Him to live it.  I will ask for Him to have mercy on my soul.

My God loves me, and I love Him because of the Love he gave me inside.  He will let me into heaven.  Go ahead and Judge me, because it doesn't matter.  I am washed in Christs blood, and I know He won't Judge me.

To Chrono and Babyangel and everyone else: I have gone through and still am going thought depression. I used to cut myself because I thought that I deserved it somehow. I can tell you that I was not in the right state of mind doing this. I used to think of suicide every day, but kept myself in check because of the pain I would cause everyone. Sometimes I though no one would care if I was gone and it might actually benefit others, but that's not true... God loves us all, even sinners, even people who hate him. I do not believe you can ask for forgiveness ahead of time. I too believe that you are not sorry for your sin if you ask ahead of time. For everyone out there, if you are cutting, or thinking about suicide-get help. It took me 8 years to get help, but once I did, it was the best decision I ever made. I take 40 milligrams of paroxatine every day and as I like to put it, it keeps me sane:) I went to counseling about a year ago and got some things off my chest and I believe that is the first step of getting better. Good luck to you all, God bless and I hope I helped someone out there.

Well since there is no heaven or hell, or god for that matter do what you will.  Although you should realize that there will be good times again and you should focus on that, eventually you will be extremely happy and look back on now and be glad you didn't do it.  Either way, god does not exist, so there are no consequences, except for how selfish you are for doing it, but then again, why would that bother you when your dead?

For those who said you wont go to heaven,they are right.

Jesus did die to forgive our sins,yes,BUT he didn't die so you could just take away your life. He died to wash away your sins so you COULD have a life.

It seems hard. Im depressed too and ive considered suicide.

Just turn to God,he will help you. For those who are atheists,im not going to sit here and FORCE you to turn to religion,but if you are feeling suicidal,just atleast try turning to God to see if it changes your views any.

Suicide isnt the answer.
But suicide is societys fault.

Murder is sin. Sinners go to hell.
If you are truly living for God then you wouldn't kill yourself because you say you are a Christian. Killing yourself is giving up on God. God can get you through it ALL. Killing yourself says" I am bigger than God and I can handle this (by killing myself) on my own, I'm smarter than God". God created everything. Everything was "good". Then when HE created humans we were "very good"!! We were not created to kill ourselves, God's "very good" creation. If you commit suicide you go to hell because you are saying that God can't help you through whatever you are going through. You have no faith in God and w/o faith noone will see God.
If you are thinking about suicide get help and remembe, Even though you go through rough times God is w/ you, right there next to you to help you through it. Footprints in the sand, when you can't walk he is carrying you. Put your faith and trust in God, Jesus can give you hope to carry on.

Personally, i have wanted to commit suicide plenty of times before but i never had the guts to do it. God tells you to appreciate the life he gave us, but sometimes its hard to when you get pressured into stuff, you get yelled at, or you get abused or raped. No one can tell you the real answer to this question but the man upstairs.  Sometimes i wish i could die just to meet God and the other times i want to because me and my parents are fighting or i wonder about who all my true friends all, who all would miss me when i die.  I know i probably sound like im a messed up kid which i probably am for a 15 year old. So, good luck to all of yall who deal with the same problem i do and remember God loves all his little children of the world.

   Yes, I really believe and hope that God takes into consideration the circumstances of Suicide. No one does it to anger God ; sometimes things happen in life, creating an unberable emptiness, from which one can never recover. I belive that God forgives people who take their own lives.  
   Do you ever feel as though you have demons inside you? Could they be the voices feeding your emptiness? My thoughts are so clouded at times, I can't focus, and I keep reliving my pain, regrets and emptiness. I don't know if I'll give in. I feel as though there is no reason to continue to build a life, when I will die anyway.  
   I feel severe empathy for the world, people, yet only see the negative side - the empty side. When I was younger, I only wanted oblivion. I was so antisocial that I only wanted non consiousness. Just nothing. I don't know what's wrong.  
   I do believe in God and hope that he forgives suicides, loves them with the warmth and empathy that lacks or is not channeled in their lives. Gives them peace... The only thing I can really say is look deeply inside yourself -  God knows what you are going through.

If you have placed your hope and trust in the Lord, there is never any reason to take your own life. Jesus loves you so much and as a believer in Him, you experience that love each day. It is the devil who is spewing the lies that make you doubt and feel hopeless. Jesus said, "The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life and have it to the full" (John 10:10). You are living what believers were warned about in 1 Peter 5:8, ďBe self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.Ē

The answer to your question is a difficult one because I have trouble believing that someone who has truly accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior could ever have so little hope. The most important thing that you need to do is to get on your knees and cry out to God to heal you from within. Ask Him to forgive your lack of trust and your fear of the future. Ask Him for guidance and strength to endure whatever it is you are facing. And, ask God to show you exactly how He feels about you.

After you have done that, seek professional, Godly counsel! A good Pastor or Christian counselor can help you to recognize what it is in you that is driving these feelings. God is so much bigger than whatever you are facing. Psalm 55:22 says, ďCast you cares on the Lord and he will sustain you.Ē He desires to help you; He longs for you to call on Him.

I do NOT think that suicide is the solution to anything BUT like the other ppl said "if god would send you to he** for being sick then that isn't someone I want to believe in"  For that I say is  confusing to me. B/c YES I REALLY do believe in God and Jesus, but why would they let ppl suffer being depressed all their lives- BUT wait, it is sortav right for God and Jesus to do that b/c when someone attempts suicide thier friends and family are hurt by it and sad b/c of it,might I say that the persons mom will be the saddest of all and might be depressed for a LONG time! See how one persons attempt to suicide can depress a lot of ppl'lives! Life is just confusing,and sometimes I don't know what to think of life.
Sometimes I am scared I wont go to Heaven b/c I was never baptized in my life,and that for some stupid reason I am embarrassed to go to church just in case I get seen by somebody I know.
But then sometimes I think yes I will go to heaven b/c I DO believe in HIM.~
Well for now thats all I have to say,and I have no idea who or what to believe but anyway GOD BLESS EVERYBODY. AND PRAY FOR THE PPL IN NEED.~

I was actualy sitting here. I wanted to study on suicide. My husband is a Pastor of a church and we have decided to study the scriptures on suicide. We realize that there are none. I have decided to seek the Lord and study on this topic more until I get revelation. I truly believe where the bible is silent we should be silent. My hurt truly goes out to the different ones that feel like committing suicide. I know what it feels like to be depressed and I also know that it is a spirit that latches on to us. There is a scripture in the bible that says they that keep their mind stayed on me ( GOD ) he will keep in perfect peace. I donot have the answer regarding if you will go to hell or Heaven. But, I know that you are crying out for help. I believe that we as Christians should cry out to GOD for you as I know so many of my brothers and sisters in CHRIST will do that have emailed. We must all remember that although some have Harsh emails they don't mean to be. I believe that they feel so strong about their convictions. But we must all remember to show the LOVE of GOD in our words and actions!!! To those that feel overwhelmed I am going to pray that GOD delivers you!!! You will live and not die.

God's blessing and grace to everyone present here and reading these messages. The Lord does not desire us to take our life. Remember what our Loving Lord told us, "Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?" read Math 6:25. Also remember read the Beatitudes (Matthew Chapter 5). The Lord has instructed us how to LIVE, not how to die. His purpose is for us to reach his saving grace by committing our lives to him as our personal Savior. How can this be accomplished when we cut our life short so suddenly? I have learned a heard lesson in life and have recently given away everything I have. I did not do this to save myself, but rather I was only thinking of the poor when I gave away. God is helping be rebuild where I have fallen. He is a loving, merciful God, but remember also that because he alone is perfect he is also justice.

I have a question to ask many of you? Do you consider yourself a good person? Answer these questions below if your answer is "yes"?

Have you kept the 10 commandments?
Have you ever told a lie? What does that make you?
Have ever stolen something, even if it was small? What does that make you?
Have you ever lusted after someone? Jesus said "I tell you whoever looks at a person in lust has already committed adultery in his heart. Read Matthew 5:27-28

Have you ever hated anyone? Jesus says whoever hates anyone is the same as a murderer. Read 1 John 3:15

If you answered "yes" to everything above then by your own admission you have admitted you are a lying thief and adulterer at heart.

Now if you were to die tomorrow and God were to judge you by the 10 commandments would you be innocent or guilty?

If you answered innocent then look at this scene below.

You are standing before a judge and are convicted of a crime: for an example let's say its drug abuse. If many of the above answers it would obviously be different. The judge has issued a fine against you of $250,000. You do not have the funds to cover the debt.

There is only one way to pay the debt. Since we cannot pay it, Jesus paid that debt for us. When he gave his life as an offering of sin for us, he paid the debt of God's vengence against us. Read John 3:35-36

If you believe that your good works can save you and that God would never throw people into hell for these things. Then you are right in saying that God can be this way for one reason. Your God doesn't exist he is a figment of your imagination.

Instead fall humbly to your knees in prayer ask Jesus to come into your life, confess your sins, ask him to make you a new creation. Then find a local church and discuss this with a Pastor. Your life will become different, as Jesus says "if anyone is in Christ, all these are passed away and have become new."

Jesus is the only mediator between God and man. Read John 3:16. Seek you find the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you.

Finally I ask, would you sell your eye for a million dollars? What about a billion?
Of course not, your eyes are precious to you. Read Matthew 5:29-30

God says its better for us to remove our eye (not physically - he's speaking spiritually) than for your whole body to go into hell.

My prayer is that anyone here who doesn't know the Lord will be lifted by his redeeming grace and perfect love. God bless you all from the bottom of my heart.

In response to the answer that was given by God_Is, I say Bravo.  No one has the answers totally with the exception of God.  It does not say in the Bible that someone who commits suicide is doomed to hell.  Believe in Christ.  Believe he is your savior because the bottom line is that will be your salvation.  God makes the judgment calls.  I used to believe that committing suicide makes a person exempt from heaven, but that was the way I was raised.  Now that I have done some research I have found that God does not say it is an unforgiveable sin.  Yes it says Thou shalt not Kill but even Paul was a murderer before he was a disciple but he was forgiven.  No one has all of the answers except for God.  I am amazed at the insight given by this 13 year old.  My hat goes off to her/him.

Nobody really knows what will happen, but i think that it is what is in your heart when you commit suicide. So most likely they will, but nobody but God knows what will happen.

i have a few things to say. one is there is only one unpardonable sin which is blaspheming the Holy Spirit. i don't know how you do that. someone said it is saying Jesus is from the devil. like the pharisees did. two is if you have repented of your sins and placed your faith in Christ forgiveness isn't based on you asking God to forgive you. if it was you would have to ask God to forgive you for everything you ever do. every evil thought, evil deed which is obvious but also sins you don't even know are sins. they say there are sins of omission and commission. what if you have an attitude that is evil but you don't see it. i often find out i have an evil attitude but i don't realize it until i see it in someone else and God shows me you do this also. i don't ask God to forgive me usually. i usually only have to say i was wrong or that is wrong and God removes the guilt from my conscience. when you repent of your sins and are saved you are forgiven of all sins past present and future based on Christ's payment on the cross and you receive His righteousness. it is deposited in your account because of Christ. God will remember your sins no more. he will place them as far as the east is from west. does that mean you can kill yourself? no. God doesn't want you to do that. it's evil and i hope you don't do that. especially if you haven't placed your faith in Christ. if you are a Christian you are as righteous as Christ. you may not feel like it and you may not always act like it, but it is a reality. Paul said to live is Christ to die is gain. does that mean that it's better to be dead? if it did why didn't he kill himself? it's because the law says you shall not murder, not just kill. there was a provision in the law where you were allowed to kill people. like if you got into a fight with someone and they died accidentally. God would not hold that against you like a murder. or like someone else says what if a man kills someone while protecting his family? it is ok to do that. it was in the law. and it was also a commandment to kill people who committed adultery and worshiped other Gods and had sex with animals or had homosexual sex and other things too numerous to mention. but what about this? why didn't they kill David? he was a man after God's own heart and he committed adultery with his neighbor's wife and then had him killed. nobody stoned David. is there a double standard? did God let David go because he liked him? no. David repented of his sins and asked God to forgive him. he lost his son born from Bathsheba during the adulterous act, but Solomon, his son was allowed to live and he became king and built the temple. was he Bathsheba's' son? I'mnot sure about that. I'llhave to look it up but i think he was. now you may say that i have made a mistake and contradicted myself when i say David repented after the sin so he could be forgiven. if he did it why wouldn't we have to ask God to forgive us after we sin? aha. you caught me. or so you think. David was under the old covenant where you had to offer a sacrifice every year for all your sins in that year and God would forgive you for those sins. in the new covenant all sins were forgiven once we put our trust in Christ. Hebrews says that Christ made one sacrifice for sins. that the blood of goats and bulls was not good enough to take away sins. it would only cover the sins. but the blood of Christ took away the sins of the world. if only the world would trust in Him. for those of you who say you can't believe in a God who would send people he loves to hell you have to understand that he has to. because salvation is not based on our goodness and the things we do. it's based on our trusting in God and what he did. he sent Jesus to die on  the cross and pay for our sins. because he made a law that says the soul that sins shall surely die and it is appointed unto men once to die and then the judgment. when you die you will be judged on all the sins you have committed unless you place your faith in Christ. why faith? because God set it up that way. because we have no righteousness of our own. the bible says there is none righteous, no not one. the only one who is righteous is God and we are not God. so if you think you can go to heaven by being good you are wrong. because how good do you have to be to go to heaven? better than me? better than one other person? as long as I'mbetter than someone i can go to heaven? no. you have to be perfect. you have to have never sinned. what do you have to do to be perfect? you have to love the Lord your God with all your heart mind soul and strength and love your neighbor as you love yourself. can i put down someone who breaks God's law? no. i shouldn't because the bible says take heed lest ye fall which means i can't put someone down for doing anything because i might do the same thing later or i may have done it earlier and i am not better just because God forgave me. forgiveness is open to all. now i do have to say it's wrong to sin and tell people what the bible says like when people say homosexuality is OK i have to tell you that the bible says it's an abomination. does that mean they cannot be saved? no. they have to agree they are sinners just like i did. they have to ask God to forgive them and stop having sex with the same sex or any sex outside of marriage because that's a sin too. God did not give the law for us to beat each other up with. he gave it to us to show us we have broken it and to realize we are not good enough to go to heaven on our own. to get back to the suicide. i know that the devil is real and there are millions of demons  all over the world. they are walking the earth not like we do because they do not have physical bodies. they can move at the speed of thought. Satan and his demons hate us because God loves us and Satan wants to be worshiped in the place of God. Satan wants us to die early and kill ourselves and do all kinds of things that will shorten our lives because he wants us to go to hell before we have the chance to hear God's message of salvation and repent of our sins. i said all that to say this that all evil thoughts come from Satan and his demons. he'll tell you you're no good or you're too fat or too thin. you're ugly, nobody loves you. you hate your mother or father . only you'll think i hate my mother or father. the thoughts come to you like they're your own. that's how evil Satan and his demons are. so if you are thinking these things realize God loves you. i am not a therapist or any kind of doctor but i would think that if you are someone who is depressed once in a while and think about suicide it may just be because you can't cope with your situation and need someone to talk to and you have to find someone you can trust maybe a therapist is needed. that doesn't make you crazy. I'vebeen depressed. i used to get depressed every year about the same time and would always come out of it, but since i got saved my depression has almost totally disappeared except for one time when i was having problems. it's OK. you can get through it. for those of you who say you are depressed for long periods i would hope you would go to a doctor and have him check you for a hormonal imbalance or whatever could cause it i don't know what does. but don't lose hope and don't think that anyone would want you dead. so that's all i have to say and i hope i have helped someone. have a great day God bless. bye.

I don't think that we as children of God should answer such an important question with such little knowledge that we have. Only God and God alone knows our destination.In the end what we think or believe doesn't matter. If some one kills themselves and there is that chance of going to hell why take it? Get closer to God or seek help. Don't ruin a life that is so precious to God and others around you. If you are thinking of killing yourself think of the day that you were born. Though you may not remember it think of how beautiful that day was as you first entered this cruel world so tiny and God given. You made everything okay didn't you and you still can. Live the life that God has so generously blessed you with. You might even find a happiness and an inner peace within yourself some day. Wait and see. Jesus Loves You. -Jesus Chick-

My fiance died 5 years ago, and all I can think about is that I want to be with him. However, it has always been in the back of my mind, until recently.
Will I be forgiven? Will I go to Heaven? The thought of being here for another 35-40 years is overwhelming to me. But I go on.

I stumbled onto this forum while googling the word 'suicide', and I've read all the posts up to date. I agree with some of you, but I disagree with the majority. I'm not posting here to argue with anyone. When people beleive in something so hard, I often find it pointless to argue.

I've 16, and I've never been religious in my life for the simply reason that I don't think I have the right to judge whether there is a God or not. I'm not saying I don't beleive, and I'm not saying I do.

The thing is, no one knows what happens after you die. Sure the bible may give us hints, but no one KNOWS. No one on this planet can walk up to you and tell you with 100% confidence everything that happens after death, and be right. Parts of it might be, but certainly there are things which humans are not meant to understand.

I've been having suicidal thoughts myself. I've been depressed for years, but suicide isn't something I _want_ to do. What keeps me from doing it is the thought that if there really is a place called hell, then there's a chance I might go there.

There's not much I can say on the subject of life after death. I could tell you all what I HOPE happens, but I have no opinion as to what really goes on. My advice to anyone out there who is depressed or contemplating suicide; make things simple for yourself. Things are easy to figure out when they're simple. That's why I don't want to practice religion. Faith is something that isn't easy to develop. I guess it's just the way I am, I'm a materialistic person.

Anyway, those are my thoughts on the subject. Stay alive out there,
~Peace

All I would like to say is that to me it is sure not worth the risk to find out. However if  there are some of you who are struggeling with loved ones who have taken there own lives, I do believe God does have consequences, but I also believe that most people that would be in the position to do that would more than likely not be in their right mind. And it is not our job to judge. "They will know we are Christians by our love"...not condemnation. Only God knows what happens in that final moment between a persons life and death. He loves us all enough to give us EVERY opportunity to repent...He never said we had to be perfect. God looks on the heart!

If G-d does not give you more than you can handle in your lifetime, then WHY do some people want to kill themselves BECAUSE they CANNOT handle their situations? One of you also spoke of everyone having a purpose in life. How do you know if your purpose is finished? To anyone contemplating suicide, especially if you are pre-teen or into your early twenties DO NOT DO IT!!! There are many chemical 'loose' in your system right now that may be making you feel this way. Talk to someone first to check out all possible avenues BEFORE you do anything. Suicide is not something that you can take back! To someone who is older and not dying from a disease ( aids, cancer etc.) I would think that if you have been contemplating suicide for many years then you really do not want to do it. It has become an emotional release form for you and as you are still alive it is working. Do not give up hope that you will find happiness and peace in your life. I am not saying that it will be easy, but, if you have endured so much already then you have more strength than you are giving yourself credit for!!! Take it one step at a time and do not expect to be overwhelmed with happiness every second of every day. Build upon it! Especially for the one who answered under 'help', drop your anger. I know that is hard to do. When you remain angry at them for what they do to you you take away your energy for happiness and life and feed it into their negativity making that more strong. Make new friends and see if things improve, even if only slightly in the beginning. Do not give into them, you've fought off their opinions of you for this long. DON"T GIVE UP!!!

For those of you who are reading this understand one thing,... the choice is up to God. Each circumstance has its own dementions. God will judge those who murder themselves. And I used the word murder because Jesus said it himself in Matthew 19:18 that it is wrong. Also it is a commandment (Exodus 20:13). Understand that your body is not yours, it is a gift. If you abuse your body your are accountable. Its like drinking. It is a sin to get drunk because you lose control of your gift (body). So just think about if you destroy the body.                            One interesting fact that no one has mentioned is the fact that the bible does speak about leaving before your time. Yes, you can leave here before you are supposed to. God knows everything, and He also gives us free will. Ecclesiastes 7:15-19, explains suicide. Each of you should read it. Verse 16 asks why should you destroy yourself or why should you kill/murder yourself? And verse 17 comments on the wickedness and foolishness of dieing before your time. God has placed each and everyone of us here for a reason. We are all fig trees, if we dont produce the fruit that we are placed here to produce then we are worthless. And like Jesus destroyed the fig tree, this is an example of hell. Yes, hell is real and it enlarges itself everyday. God sends no one to hell. He gives you a guide book (bible) and if you follow it to your best then you go to heaven, if you ignore the rules and dont care, then you go to hell. You cant come into my house unless you know me. Like God wont let you into His house unless you have a personal relationship with Him.      So again, committing suicide is very wrong and highly unlikely you will go to heaven, but it is all up to God.

You are all wise, some more than others..but nevertheless, wise. Those with thoughts of suicide may read on..those looking for knowledge may read on. I am a messenger of God and i myself have had these evil thoughts..yes i did say evil. When I say evil I don't mean that you yourself are evil, but your'ebeing overtaken by evil. I fully understand depression, pain, loss, anger, and guilt. Let this not burden you any longer. We've all felt rejected, hated, and alone. So did Jesus... he was rejected by the people..hated by the people..beatin by the people..and singled out by the people. as he walked through crowds he was spit on, punched, kicked, people threw rocks at him, made him feel ALONE. But he did not give up..he knew he had a mission in life and he did NOT give up. You too have a mission in life, whatever that mission may be is beyond us all. Only God knows what is to come of you..but life is a gift, from God! Use this gift..preach it to the people, use it to help the people, to help yourself..let all you do be done through God! Ask "What Would Jesus Do?"...Ask what YOU can do for JESUS..like i said life is a gift from god, don't throw it back in his face by commiting suicide, we all make mistakes and God understands that..he understands everything you go through. Read the bible 15 minutes a day. When you finish it, read it again..and again and again and again. THEN PREACH IT!!! Write on the palm of your hand every morning before you go to work or school, WWJD (what would Jesus do) this will help you to think before you do. Before i go let me remind you once more that life is God's greatest gift next to love..cherish it and live everyday like it's your last..because you never know when you're job here will be done and he'll call you to the gates of heaven.


and remember what Jesus said.."IF YOU DENY ME IN FRONT OF THE PEOPLE I WILL DENY YOU IN FRONT OF MY FATHER"  

he loves us all, all you have to do is love him back




love..

Everyone suffers from some form of physical ailments because of the imperfection of man. a suicidal person suffers from depression, depression is an illness of an imbalance of chemicals in the brain.
Depression is a illness.
Cancer is an illness of mutated cells.
God is not going to keep a depressed person that performed suicide from heaven any more than he will keep a cancer patient from heaven or an sick infant. Entrance to heaven is not based on sicknesses or wellness but on how God judges ones heart.

Our God is a loving God and a merciful God.

John 10 27:29

Suicide is a sin and I don't see anywhere in the scriptures where this is singled out as a sin greater than any other. In the eyes of God all sin is equally punishable by death.


Lying, Cheating others, Dishonoring Mother and Father, Stealing, Shopping too Much, Spending Too Much, and many more are sins.  So Suicide is a sin, but I  do not see dying with unrepented sin sends you to hell.  Why would we need GRACE? However, I do not recomend testing the issue because if we are wrong, there is no coming back.

I agree with red7...a person who attempts or commits suicide is most often not in "their right mind" ie...severe depression, extreme emotional distress, anger.††††We all know God is merciful and takes into consideration our situation and circumstances.††If mercy can be shown to murders and such (1Corinthians 6:9-11)surely He will take into count the severe emotional stress and any other factors that might cause this tragedy.††Our hope lies in the hands of our merciful heavenly father "who forgives in a large way" Isaiah 55:7
   


I also, do not believe a person who commits suicide is totally in their right mind. I believe they are oppressed and see no way to relieve the pressure and sadly I believe this is due in part to Christians relaying a message of a powerless religion such as 'We are saved and the most we can expect as Christians is to suffer through this dreadful life<<<<<< WRONG.

.....'My God is more loving and merciful than that to his people. Jesus  says  "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand."
      -John 10:27-29

Then comes grace..Not an excuse to continue in sin or commit suicide, but a covering from Christ. This is how I see it. Something to think about.  God Bless!!!!

People always ask a preacher or a priest "Do you go to heaven when you commit suicide" How are they supposed to know? No body knows. But in ways and forms, didn't Jesus commit suicide? He offered to be Crucified. Yes I realize for the sake of Man-kind but, he was willing to be sacrificial. Isn't it fair to have him be damned if we will be damned? I mean, The technical term for suicide is - taking part in activity causing death or near fatal experiences. So..the crucification was technically a suicide. I don't believe that God can punish us for something his so called messenger did. Can he?

ALL i think about everyday is dying. The only reason I haven't committed suicide is because I fear that I will spend eternity in hell.Otherwise I would be 6 feet under the ground right now.

Wow, there are some really good answers.  I think [God_Is] Nathan Ellis from Canada (and he is 13 too!) and LJ both answered this complex issue in the best detail.  Personally I don't know what to make of it.  My life is so meaningless and empty at times.  I am 18 and still without a girlfriend and unemployed at the moment while at college doing TEE.  This question here really is a philosophical entity of thought.  I believe God does exist and I feel that if I were to kill myself I would spend eternity in purgatory(?).  Someone mentioned that quote from the Bible that God won't give us a trial that is completely unbearable, there is always a way out, always a solution.  

So next year if I am at University I would like to do PE teaching and also Philosophy.  It would be fun learning ancient philosophy as a subject, but still we can't really answer these complex questions.  Only God knows the answers, after all it was He who created everything, from nothing.  Another interesting philosophical question is "How did God begin??" Was he always there, was there ever a beginning?  Why did he suddenly decide to create mankind, even though he knew the outcome, right down to each second of our lives?  Also He gives us free-will, but in the end it's pre-determined fate.  We have a destiny that we inevitably live up to. 0.0 Boy am I confused.  Only God holds all the answers, and is truly the one and only superlative being.

Seriously though, with the topic of suicide, what are we to do?  I agree with LJ'spost, maybe after we have fulfilled our life it is destiny that we kill ourself at that precise moment.  Really, this is something you just have to pray about and look out for God's symbolic messages.  I don't think any one human can answer this question.  Not even the greatest philosopher.  I think it is best to live out your whole life and just generally live a pure-good Christian life :D

I'm VERY tired.  I KNOW I don't do everything right, but my gosh!  I NEED a break!!!  I'M not sure what to do!
  
Some one wrote this and I say Ditto!

I have no idea what is in the mind of God!
I can see no reason to do another day....except I have 2 dogs that I am responsible for and I have to find them a loving home...because I would take them with me except that I think that is like killing your family then taking your own life..however now I understand the concept.
Last but not least I have an 11 year old Godchild whom I raised...I have to work this out so that she will be ok.
My mother is a "b" who beat me until I was 16...at 17 I left home....I forgive her but I really don't care what she thinks/feels.
My Brothers...I am many miles away...they love me I love them...they have their own lives.
I have lived long enough to know that the members of the 'church' don't give a damn about anyone else ...just their personal agenda...this is the deal with most people...
That however, doesn't make God wrong.

So it is Him and me...I am cleaning and sorting and giving away things...I am trusting Him as much as I can...thank God He sends daily miracles....just to let me know that He is God.

The thing that lives in me that will/would take my life is my finite mind.   My Soul is totally against it...My Soul screams 'trust God' 'Be not afraid for I am God'

So being the good Father that He is He will rescue me from this horrible state of mind and its deviant perception of life...and the evil one will curse and flee....because
"As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD"

I am a little whinner think of Job and Isaiah etc...the suffering that they endured to stand as a pillar of strength ...hope against hope in this world....and even the Father came to show us that 'he who gives his life for my sake will have eternal life'  so for that we are called...

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS IT WILL HELP YOU BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  
Well, the person would only go to Heaven if they had accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior. Which means that you believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and rose again the third day. But you have to truly believe it in your heart. John 3:16 says, God loves you and paid the ultimate price for your sins.John 14:6 says, There is only one way to Heaven.

However, if the person did not accept Jesus as their personal savior he/she will not go to Heaven but go to Hell. God loves you but your sin (or anyones sin) separates you from Him. He's perfect. It's like having a nice clean, white sheet and throwing chocolate pudding all over it.
God loves you and wants to have a personal relationship with you, but you have the choice to make that relationship real. Suicide is not the answer... God is!

Really if you commit suicide you don't know
where you might go. Some people say if you're not in your right mind that God will
forgive you and you'll go to heaven. But how do you know that? I know if you go to
that awful place there's no way out there at
all and you'll wish you never did it. There's always a way out here. And you can
repent and be forgiven here but not there.
There's someone out there that wished they
had you. there are a lot of lonely people
in the world. Don't give up. Don't belive the crap people tell you that you are no
good, you are worth a lot God created you
if you listen to some people they don't care
a crap if you do die so why let them have there way. No matter what anybody tells you
God made you for a purpose he did not make
anything for nothing. If you are here alive
now God made you for a purpose. Don't believe people when they bring you down you will always meet people like that!

I keep reading answers such as, "If you ask for forgiveness...but...when you commit suicide, when do you ask for forgiveness?"  On this, my first thought is that are we sure, as simple human beings, that GOD Himself is constrained within the limits of OUR perception of time?  How can any person who has not yet gone to heaven to meet God warn about any kind of constraint God would be under?  It seems to me that if He can be dead for three days and resurrect, avoiding all natural decay that OUR time INSISTS upon, OUR time is not of much consequence in the spiritual realm.  So it would be impossible to say, after someone's suicide, that they didn't have "time" to ask for forgiveness.  If one of God's children was hurting SO incredibly badly that they chose death when most human beings fear death or at minimum fight to live, I can't believe His first item on His agenda is what time it is.  This is NOT to encourage someone to commit suicide because they are, based upon the aforementioned argument, "free and clear" to do such.  First, are we assuming the people who are reading this for help are definitely Christians?  If they are not, this wouldn't be much of a concern per se; if they are, I'd have to make the argument that while I believe (personally) God takes every situation individually and judges you, when the "time" comes, based, sincerely, on your inner heart through and through, and though I believe you wouldn't NEED the chance to explain yourself because, regardless of HOW you die, God KNOWS why you did what when [be it suicide, a sin (were you forced into it?), an act of kindness (was it for personal gain?)]--nothing is black or white--I also believe that if a Christian is THAT far into emotionally hurting, whatever has brought them there is blinding them to what God's love actually IS.  My guess--and I reiterate GUESS--is that human suffering and pain is not, to a God who has profusely expressed His indescribable amount of love for his children, and then goes on to say even more so for the "lost" ones (He would go after only one lost bleating lamb from an entire flock to save it), so much an issue of judgment as it is an issue of His love and the really suffering person who isn't feeling His or anyone else's real love and/or concern.  My question is: why is this Christian so alone?  I hope it's not because they fear OUR judgment, or our judgments that GOD would judge them if they did such a thing (commit suicide).  If they are so kept from feeling love, love them.  And then show them how YOU yourself are able to understand God's love.  

SO you know--I lost a great-grandmother, my mother (age 58), and my sister (age 26) to suicide.  I tried it myself shortly after my sister, puncturing a left lung, rupturing my spleen, and spending over 9 days unconscious on a respirator in the CCU. I was DEVASTATED when I woke up alive.  It was a Christian who didn't judge, but worked to show me that even when I simply COULDN'T (whether it was actually there or not)feel love from another person, how I COULD find it from God.  It's a long journey, a hard one, but I have graduated from college, am in law school, and in approx. two more years will be a lawyer.  Someday I hope to be a judge.  And I hope I will remember to judge all that come before me with the remembrance that GOD made each person standing before me, and if HE believes that EVERYONE can change, then how can I stand, as a simple non-perfect human, stand in greater judgment than Him?  I hope that the basis of all my judgments will be of love, and not in the spirit of heavy handed judgment or condemnation.

I don't think when a person is dying inside to the point they want to die completely is the time to "remind" them that the only Being they might have left to hold onto is standing prepared to judge them and send them to hell if the hurting overwhelms them and becomes too much.

I believe God "thinks" on a much higher level than we, and speculating on how He might judge someone else is dangerously close to judging the person ourself.  You know, "Thou shalt not judge lest ye be judged..."  I guess I'd say, don't waste the time guessing on how or whether God's going to judge someone who wants to die.  Spend the time on loving them, and showing them, or bringing them back to, the love of God.

Think once about this hell you speak of. And GOD. Lets say a person lives to age 70. During this life a person has not done many good things, in fact mostly bad things,and this person has never asked for forgiveness. For 70 yesrs of sinning, God is going to send this person to everlasting burning hellfire and torture FOREVER! FOREVER in exchannge for 70 short years. We know NOTHING of what HELL really is. Look up the original word that is translated into hell from the original Bible  lingo. There is no Hell as it is described in the bible. Yes ,the word hell is in the bible, But the actual word is NOT what ALL of our Sunday school teachers and t.v. preachers say it is. It is not ever lasting burning and suffering FOREVER. Do you think a fare, loving God would really do that to someone? This is to scare you. I beleive in GOD more than ANYTHING. Check out this word hell(not from your dictionary)but from the original translated word. You will find a surprise.

Pehaps it would help if you were consideing suicide to just think as hard as you can about something you would rather do, there must be at least one thing which you would rather do then commit suicide, god wouldnt want you to commit suicide, he wouldnt want you to take the precious gift of life he granted you with and throw it back in his face he has reasons for as all to live and if iit makes you feel any better your life is a whole lot better then so many other people who still keep going every day, the very fact that you had access to a computer to ask this question proves this, think if you were a child laborer in a 'sweat shop' or some inbred person with severe problems?

God works in many ways. Some of them i really don't understand from what i have read and and prayed about is that God will forgive the worst sin u could ever think of. He even forgives murder. But you have to ask for forgiveness to be forgiven so how can u ask for forgiveness after you have died. Well its kind off confusing and i have to admit I'm a little discombobulated myself too.  But i will agree with that its "His" decision. God is the greatest. But if you are thinking about suicide i will tell you that God loves you and as bad as its sounds...your not alone in life. Things will get better. If you need anything my screen name is Castin Crowns101.

God Bless you and keep you in His heart and hold you in His Grace.

My cousin Commited sucide last night.  I'm not sure if she was religious or not. When we were younger we were really close but as the years went on we werent as close any more in fact the last time I talked to her was like 3 years ago at the family reunion.  
I myself am Catholic and have never had to deal with sucide although I do suffer from depression and have been so low that I comtimplated suicide but decided I couldnt go through with it.  I know that my cousin had to be in so much pain that she thought that this was the only way out.  As I've been sitting here for the last hour or so thinking on it a song keeps going through my head its called Angels Among Us. and there is a line that says that "...they are sent down to us from somewhere up above,they come to you and me in our darkest hours to show us how to live, to teach us how to give and show us the light of love."  I can only think that my cousin's Angel didnt make it to her in time or that she was so deeply hurting that her Angel couldnt reach her.

I pray that God will forgive my cousin for commiting sucide, I know that she wouldnt have done it if she hadnt been so depressed. But all we can do is pray for her because when Jesus comes back it is said that he will "Judge the living and the DEAD" and no matter what way she went she is dead and Jesus will speak to all who are living and dead and decide which way they go. Maybe our prayers for her and all those who have gone before her can help in that decision makeing and maybe now my cousin can know some peace.

honestly what has god ever done for you all, he has never given you advise, you have never met him, his just sumthing you follow so you have some place to fit, there is no such thing as heaven or hell and if there is i dont want to end up in heaven because to spend every day with someone that took something so precious to my heart would be like scraping the skin from my body with a fork.

I believe that when you commit suicide God understands He just want you to be forgiving by your loved ones you have left wondering why you did it.

"He who seeks to keep his life will lose it, but he who loses it will gain it"

These words do not portain to sucide at all. They portain to keeping your life completely to yourself instead of giving it to God. What this is saying is that if you hold fast to your life and don't give it to God, you will in fact lose your chance at eternal life. But to those true Christians who have given their lives to Jesus Christ and who live by the will of God, they, because they gave their lives up to God, will gain eternal life. Wheter they are martyred for their faith or if they live a full life, the point is that they gave their lives to Jesus, and lived for Him and not themselves.


Sucide is taking hold of your life. Life itself is a gift from God. Instead of giving their lives to Christ, people who commit sucide are in fact taking their lives into their own hands and selfishly deciding the time of their deaths, instead of letting God decide that. It is, in my opinion, one of the greatest acts of selfishness in the world because you are not only taking from God what is rightfully his, but you are causing the ones you love much grief and robbing them of the joy that they would've had if you had remained alive.

ANYONE GOING TO THIS SITE SHOULD KNOW THAT YOU ARE FIGHTING FOR YOUR SOUL NOT YOUR LIFE. SCREAM LOUD, PRAY AND FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE, MORE IMPORTANTLY YOUR SOUL.  GET HELP, TELL ANYONE AND EVERYONE UNTIL HELP COMES, I GUARANTEE IT WILL AND HAPPINESS IS JUST ON THE HORIZON. TAKING YOUR LIFE IS NEVER THE ANSWER, NEVER NOT IN ANY RELIGION, ANYWHERE. YOU WILL BE IN A STATE OF DARKNESS AND WILL HEAR AND FEEL THE PAIN OF THOSE YOU LEFT BEHIND. IF YOU KILL YOURSELF WHEN YOU ARE 15 FOR EXAMPLE AND YOU WERE SUPPOSE TO DIE AT 30. YOU WILL BE SUFFERING THAT LONG.  EVEN THOUGH THEY SAY THAT OUR LIFETIME IS LIKE THE BLINK OF AN EYE TO HEAVEN. THE ONLY WAY TO THE LIGHT OUT OF THE DARKNESS IS PRAYERS. MULTIPLE MUTIPLE PRAYERS.  AND WHEN YOU FINALLY SEE THE LIGHT YOU WILL ABSOLUTLY HAVE TO COME BACK AND LIVE THE SAME KIND OF LIFE WITH THE SAME KIND OF CIRCUMSTANCES AND NOT KILL YOURSELF TO COMPLETE  THE CLEANSING OF YOUR SOUL, FOR SOUL GROWTH, FOR A COMPLETE BALANCE. GOD GOT YOU THIS FAR FIGHT HARD, PRAY, THOUGHTS ARE THINGS. AND SOMETIMES NOT YOUR OWN. WE WRESTLE AGAINST PRINCIPALITIES AND POWERS ON HIGH. PLEASE KNOW GOD LOVES YOU

Hello all, I just got done reading all of the statements above and they have really made me think.  I'm 21 and I have been considering committing suicide off and on for over a year now, I've even thought of how to do it.  The combinations of a heavy and long depression, and stress with my relationships, family, school, work, and complete lack of a social life is becoming unbearable.  I have looked to God and I have believed in God for over 10 years now, and I know that with God all things are possible (including life), but its so hard.  I just can't stand the pain of everything.  I don't know if I will go to heaven or not (I hope so) I know its said that God understands and he is all loving, but I havenít been able to talk to God in over 4 months.  Call it guilt of my own feelings or maybe just plan loss of sight, it just makes me that much more sad because I almost feel like I have lost that relationship too.  I just don't know and I just donít like where I'm going in life anymore and that scares me so much.

Hi every one, I have been a born again christian for 15 yrs, I am married to a pastor,  I have a true story to tell you about a friend of mine, she used to cut herself often, one  night God gave me a dream about her, she was being strangled by a demon, he was over 6 ft tall, looked like a cross between a lizard and something else, he had small red eyes, I interrupted him when I walked into the room, he turned around and came for me, I said be gone, he dropped into the ground and smoke came up from the floor.  Freaky it was and scarey too, I woke my husband and told him the dream, he said we needed to pray for her, we did.  The next day I phoned her and told her the dream, she confessed she was trying to commit suicide.  I too suffer from depression, and believe that Satan kills, steals and destroys, he will take your soul if you give in.  I have helped many people by telling them that dream I remind myself who is behind the scene, tempting us to take our lives.  I hope this makes people think.  I know life is extremely hard at times.  But there are people even when you don't have many friends like me, at least one person cares enough to have died for you and his name is Jesus.

Well I think that if you live your life the way the lord wants you to and you accept Jesus and ask him into your heart no matter what you will be saved if you truly live to serve and love him. The theif that was on the cross next to Jesus did not live a life for the Lord but still realized that the he had was not anywhere near what god wanted but he addmitted that he was wrong and he was saved. I know that is not suicide but i believe and hope that God will have mercy for people that cant control themselves to live any longer even if they did love and believe in God

I would like to ask lostladyrc a question. So you think that you can ask forgiveness before you commit suicide? Well let me give you an example.(In this story the mother is playing the part of God and the boy is us) Let's say that there is a little boy eyeing a cookie jar(the sin). The mother has left a note by the jar(bible) that if you eat a cookie then you won't get to watch your favorite tv show(go to heaven) but if you do then you're going to bed(hell). She leaves and tells you how to reach her(prayer). You call her and ask her forgiveness in preparation for your disobeying her. When she gets back do you think she will let you watch your tv show? You know she loves you but she's going to send you to bed."

Yes, but the mother is only human, and God is not.

You will go to hell if you commit suicide.  Suicide is a temptation of the devil.  We have to receive power from the Lord Jesus Christ to resist these temptations.  If it was so easy for me or you to ask for forgiveness before killing ourselves what is the purpose of the Bible a document that tells us what it takes to enter into the kingdom of Heaven.  Acts 2:38 states that we should repent, be baptized in the name of Jesus for the remission of our sins, and after we shall receive the precious gift of the Holy Ghost and from there you shall receive power.  Yes we serve a forgiving God but he is also a jealous and demanding God.  WE MUST LIVE HOLY AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT!!!!!

I am amazed at the lack of acknowledgement for the day of reckoning.  He will come again to judge the living AND the DEAD.  We will all answer to God after death before we enter the gates of heaven.  God knows all therefore even in death he can hear your heart.  We are all God's children and he will decide who will spend eternity with him.  None of us can make that decision for him and none of us has the right to judge.  
This should not be about one disagreeing with one anothers opinion or answer but rather to share the faith in God that he will forgive our sins and he will take care of all who believe and have faith in him.  My heart goes out to all who are grappling with life and to those who love someone who lost their way.  God will lead them home again.

I just had one of my friends committ suicide this week, this is the second one of my friends who have done this in two years. This has got me thinking. I believe that God who is the almighty and one living being that is truth and love. I believe that evil men who committ genocide and hate and un-moral values such as rape and murder go to Hell. However, if God's love is pure in the soul's of those who do so, they may be welcomed into the light of God. Depends on the direct reasons for suicide as well, not sure what they are, but I guess dying in the name of the Lord would be the most powerful statement.

God loves us all, that I am certain, but what I'm not sure about if those who take their lives are seen fit to enter the glorious kingdom that awaits us.

To be honest, what we think dose not matter it's what God's word says about taking a life that counts. If it's our life or some Else's. Exo.20:13 says THOU SHALT NOT KILL. If we kill ourself, we've killed someone.Rev.21:8 says that murderers will have there part in the LAKE OF FIRE. So we can not kill ourself and go to heaven. You can not ask for forgiveness after your dead.
Please read and obey ACTS 2:38 it's your only HOPE.

To all who are struggling with pain right now:

Please don't hurt yourself.  More people care than you know.  I just know that if you leave us, something precious will be lost from the earth that we can never get back.  Please don't leave us.  

I went to my nieghbor's funeral today.  I am so sad. I barely knew her, and now I will never get the chance.  It really hurts my heart.

If you are in serious pain, please see a doctor and don't be ashamed.  Depression can strike anyone.  It's not a sign of weakness.  It's a sign you need help, like if your leg hurts you go to the doctor if it doesn't get well by itself.  Same with your feelings, ok?  Maybe medicine can help. Please give it a try, before giving up.

And no, I can't beleive that a person dying of depression would go to hell.  How absurd.  The great God who is merciful to all of us undeserving sinners never runs out of mercy. His mercy endures forever.

I believe God does allow exceptions when it comes to suicide. A man who has led a life worthy of God's love. He is a born again, spirit filled believer. Who, for the most part of his life "SERVED OTHERS". He has a incredible annointing on his life and has used that to offer hope to this lost world.
Everything was going great and he would go to the mountain top and pray and thank God for his blessed life.
The next year his wife died after 40 yrs. of marriage. This was so hard on him but his faith and our Lord walked him through it. He was gathering strenght after losing his wife when A couple of weeks later he found out he had a terminal desease. They gave him pain medications and it seemed like he took fifty a day. He was still praising God when his thinking was right. In a matter of a month he looked nothing like the man he used to. A couple of weeks later he overdosed on all the pills and it was proven he did it on purpose. He wasn't in his right mind and if he had no medications it would of never happened. I believe God gives exceptions and I know he is in Heaven.

Biblically, the Bible condemns Murdering anyone. To kill yourself would be a sin. How can you ask for forgiveness if you're already dead? You can't. I had a friend tell me he thinks that you can kill yourself and still go to heaven. I strongly disagree. If we read our bibles, it says there are two sins you CANNOT be forgiven for; Killing yourself and Cursing the Holy Spirit. I'll pray for you! God Bless!

The following are a few examples of what is typically taught concerning the eternal destiny of those who commit suicide. It is completely contrary to what the Bible teaches.

1. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches,

"Grave psychological disturbances, anguish, or grave fear of hardship, suffering, or torture can diminish the responsibility of the one committing suicide."

"We should not despair of the eternal salvation of persons who have taken their own lives. By ways known to him alone, God can provide the opportunity for salutary repentance. The Church prays for persons who have taken their own lives." (CCC, p. 550, #2282 & 2283)

2. Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa California writes in Answers For Today,

"Q: Is a person who commits suicide totally lost for eternity?

A: Definitely not! I believe that a person who is driven to the point of committing suicide no longer has full responsibility for the things he's doing. Driven to a point of such mental extremes, he isn't necessarily responsible for the action of taking his own life." (p. 88-89; revised edition p. 116)

3. Charles Stanley of First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, teaches,

". . . suicide is an act of rebellion against God. Fortunately for all of us, however, God's grace is without prejudice. Whoever believes will be saved. Nowhere in the Bible does God compartmentalize sin and reserve grace only for those who commit "acceptable" sins. There is no such thing. Does God forgive suicide? Yes, He does."

"If the person who committed suicide at some time accepted Jesus' death on the cross as payment for his sin debt and asked Him into his life, he is forgiven. Absolute assurance of forgiveness is found in Romans 8:1: 'There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.' If a person has ever taken that step and received Christ as Savior, nothing can alter the truth that, as children of God, we are forgiven. Even when we rebel against God." (Handbook for Christian Living, p. 49, italics in original)

4. It is recorded that Dr. J. Vernon McGee (1904-1988, "Thru the Bible" radio) taught,

"Q. I was completely surprised when one of my friends from church committed suicide. How could a Christian kill himself?"

McGee's answer, in part, reads,

"I can understand that a Christian might have a mental breakdown, a catastrophic illness, or certain other things which might cause him to do this. I would not sit in judgment upon a professing Christian who does this because, to begin with, the minute he commits this act he is out of your hands and out of my hands. We cannot pass judgment on him. And I do know this: if that person is a child of God, he is saved. I don't care what you say, he is saved if he is a child of God." (Questions and Answers, copyright 1990 p. 50)

5. David Jeremiah, pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California, says,

"I've had the funerals of a number of people who have taken their own lives, and quite often family members will come and say, 'Is there any forgiveness if someone takes their own life.' And I need to report that that sin is neither accorded any greater or lesser value in the economy of God than the other sins which are chronicled in the word of God. And it is possible, I believe, for a person who has gone through some terrible stress in their life and in a moment of not thinking clearly has ended their life that person very easily might find his place in heaven; especially because he could have given his heart to Christ in this life; and even to take one's life does not undue what God does in the inward act of salvation." (Saul's Suicide, tape TTW13)

6. John F. MacArthur, pastor teacher of Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California, makes the following claim in his article entitled "Can one who commits suicide be saved?"

"Suicide is a grave sin equivalent to murder (Exodus 20:13; 21:23), but it can be forgiven like any other sin. And Scripture says clearly that those redeemed by God have been forgiven for all their sins--past, present, and future (Colossians 2:13-14). Paul says in Romans 8:38-39 that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus."

"So if a true Christian would commit suicide in a time of extreme weakness, he or she would be received into heaven (Jude 24)." [www.biblebb.com/files/macqa/IA-suicide.htm, hard copy on file]

All of this speaks directly against Matthew 24:13; John 15:1-6; Romans 11:22; 1 Corinthians 15:2; Colossians 1:23; Hebrews 3:6, 14; 12:25; and 1 John 5:4. Committing suicide is not enduring to the end (Matthew 24:13). It is not abiding in Christ (John 15:1-6). It is not continuing in His goodness (Romans 11:22). It is not holding fast the word (1 Corinthians 15:2). It is definitely being moved away from the hope of the gospel (Colossians 1:23). It is not holding fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end (Hebrews 3:6). It is not holding the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end (Hebrews 3:14). It is refusing and turning away from Him who speaks from heaven (Hebrews 12:25). And, it is not overcoming the world (1 John 5:4), but rather being overcome by the world and the devil (1 Peter 5:8; 1 John 5:18).

This kind of teaching on suicide opens wide the door of death and Hades (Luke 16:19-31; Revelation 20:11-15) to those in despair.

Some might argue, "What about Samson? He committed suicide." Samson's "suicide" was actually an act of war, as he killed three thousand Philistines in his vengeance upon them (Judges 16:28-30). He died in his effort to kill others, as he said, "Let me die with the Philistines!" (Judges 16:30). It was not, as a typical suicide of our day, because of a lack of hope, or a deranged mind. He died with the Philistines to "take vengeance on the Philistines" for his two eyes (Judges 16:28). Plus, this was the only choice he had, to kill them as he did.

Typical suicidal people today are those who have no hope, and they are thus not in Christ (Ephesians 2:12; 1 Peter 1:3; 3:15), or they have been moved away from the hope of the gospel and are thus lost (Colossians 1:21-23). Those with deranged minds, or who "might have a mental breakdown," are those who do not have a sound mind and are therefore not in Christ (Isaiah 26:3; 2 Timothy 1:7). These people will end up in hell if they die in such a state. Such people are not saved.

MacArthur, in the article mentioned above, ends his article with these words:

"So though it may be possible for a true believer to commit suicide, we believe that is an unusual occurrence."

One unusual belief in this damning doctrine will result in one long eternity in hell!

i think that God has a plan for everyone, and a lot of teens ask about this all the time and there is a right answer and a wrong answer. i think that it is up to God.  if you attempt to kill your self then it is not called suicide, it is called trying to kill your self. so you can ask for forgivness before you die and you will go to heaven if you are a christian, but if you do comite suicide then if you are a christian then i believe that you go to heaven too.

I have struggled with this same question myself many times. While I was raised from childhood in a conservative Christian family, I have come to wonder a bit myself about some of what is correct and what is not. My basic beliefs about taking life center around not committing murder for malicious reasons. I fully support those who MAY have to take life in performance of duty such as soldiers or law enforcement officers. I would hope that they didn't have to, but if they do I certainly don't believe God would hold them guilty for doing it. By the same reasoning as many other posts have stated, I've felt often times like I'd be doing my friends and family a favor if I was to end everything. I lost a daughter and a wife in the past year, and frankly they were my life. I don't enjoy seeing my family and friends saddened about the situation, and I don't enjoy it myself. However, if some kind of good can come out of it, I hope I don't get in God's way. Do I think suicide is an automatic ticket to hell? No, not necessarily. I believe God takes into account the circumstances. However, do I recommend it? No... not even when it seems like the only way to heal yourself. I do my best to reserve the right to judge someone exclusively for God.

You know, i feel so horrible about everything that goes wrong in my life, and i'veconsidered suicide plenty of times. i seem to hurt a lot of people around me, and...it's the most horrible thing you can ever feel. you could get shot, stabbed, beat, or nearly killed and it wouldn't feel as bad as that. i skipped over all the stuff about, "if you kill yourself, god will hate you and send you to hell". that just makes me feel even worse. but...i listened to the other people who really care about helping those people like me, and, it's helped me a lot. i don't feel nearly as bad as i used to. it's also helped me, because up until now, i've never really been religious, and every time i pray, i feel better. God DOES exist, and God DOES WANT to help his children. if there's anyone else who feels that bad, just try prayer. it really helps. thanks to the people who really care, the people who helped me in this FAQ, and especially God. good luck to everyone who really feels like suicide, I hope you all find happiness somewhere in life.

I know how you feel original poster. I'm a christian but Ive struggled with suicidal urges most of my life. I think the only thing that stops me sometimes is imagining that I could spend eternity in hell after the fact. That would really really suck. I dont know if suicides go to hell...but I sure as hell dont want to chance it.

That said, the only comfort I might give you is that whatever emptiness or lonliness or sorrow you're going through..well, it will pass and you will make it through. You'd be suprised how tough you really are. And while tomorrow doesnt look like it has anything good in store, or anyone that might give you some meaning, remember too - you miss every ball you dont swing at. Sometimes good suprises come when you least expect them, and what if tomorrow was the day? Isnt that worth toughing it out for another 24 hrs? Just to see?

Anyways give tomorrow a chance. Give God a chance to bless you, you never know whats around the bend.

reading all the answers on here I have to say that people shouldn't be telling you if you go to hell or not they should be telling you not to do it. However I am struggling in the same way, I want to know if a born again Christian will go to heaven if they commit suicide and I wanted to ask my parents but I've already told them that being dead would be better than being alive so if I ask them then they will know that I am considering it. I must tell you though to think about it, pray, I have my own reasons and I'm sure you do too but the only one who can help you is God. I've lost my faith in prayer, I know that God exists but I feel he hates me, that he's never been there for me and I don't know what to do anymore. Anyway, please re-think, I know it's difficult but you have to try. I am here if you want to talk, I can listen to whatever you may want to say and I will not judge you as I have problems of my own.

I think that if you commit suicide you will not go to Heaven because God has died for us and it says that God is the one who gives life and takes away life and if you try to suicide yourself i think your more stupid than the person who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and every sinner that is out there in the World and plus God has given you and me a precious life that we can live just get closer to him and have fellowship with him Thank you and God Bless you remember God loves you so don't do it if you are Please.

all you have to do is accept jesus as your savior and the slate is wiped clean. bottom line: if you believe in jesus, you WILL go to heaven, END OF STORY! but suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problems, and it is TRAGIC

In this life there is suffering beyond what I can even begin to comprehend. God is infinitely smarter than us so there must be a good reason. He knows best. So what happens is probably for reasons we can't understand. Plus, whether we like it or not, there is not a damn thing we can do about it. The suffering that I feel is beyond all reason and all understanding. My mouth cries out and wails inhuman sounds because of the torment that I feel inside. What really gets me is that hell could possible be worse than this.

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO HEAVEN AND THAT IS THROUGH JESUS. YOU YOU MUST ACCEPT JESUS IN YOUR HEART AND ASK FOR FORGIVINESS AND ACCEPT THAT HE HAS ALREADY SETTLE THE SIN ISSUE. THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL GUIDE YOU AND HELP YOU TO BE LIKE JESUS. WHEN YOU GET BORN AGAIN, ONLY YOUR SPIRIT GOT SAVE YOUR BODY AND MIND DID NOT GET SAVE AND YOUR BODY DID NOT GET SAVE. AS FAR AS SUCIDE IF YOU COMMIT THIS HORRIBLE ACT YOU WILL BE SAVE BECASUSE YOU ACCEPTED JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR. YOUR MIND CAN GET SICK JUST ny other ORGAN THAT IS IN YOUR MIND.WHAT GOD WOULD SEND A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN BECAUSE HE COMMIT SUCIDE WHEN HIS ORGANIC BRAIN GOT SICK. NOT BORN AGAIN THAT IS ANOTHER STORY. THE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN HELL ARE THERE ONLY FOR ONE SIN, AND THAT IS THE SIN OF REJECTING JESUS AND NOT BELIEVING THAT JESUS IS GOD SON. HOPE THIS HELPS ANYBODY.

well ive been badly depressed for about a year now. And what i dont understand is how you people can say something about a subject you couldn't possibly know the answer to. Only God can. I beleive in God and i want to commit suicide for various reasons of which i will not mention here. I am not afraid to die. but i am afraid of what comes next. Is it a black void. An eternity of darkness. A flaming hell with an eternity of pain. or a complete eternal life with god. I have not been baptized and i am really scared of going to hell. I beleive in god and have asked him to help me many times and he wont. I have said that if he truly loves me he will allow all the reasons i want to commit suicide will stop. But they dont. And everything i fear the most always happens to me. How is it that me a christian who accepts god in everyway into his life. And the people out there bullies and the 'COOL' people get the easy life. You would think that god would 'SAVE' the people that accept him but no. Its the people who dont even beleive him who get a good life. And just this reason is really damaging my faith. My parents are not religious atall. And how am i supposed to tell them that i want to commit suicide. i cant is the answer and now im scared of what will become of my life. I actually think God hates me. Even though he is supposed to love all his children. I want to commit suicide and i know that oneday i will. I think my loved ones will get over it eventually. they always do.

I totally agree with all my heart that God gives grace for those who ask. If you are feeling down and out and God has planned it in such a way till we contemplate suicide, then it is a way out from God.

If you commit suicide and did not die, then it is God's plan to keep you here to finish his purpose.

If you do die, you will go to heaven. Anyways, life is meaningless.

We were given free will and intelligence for a reason, and it wasn't just to do God's work.

I am no Christian, and I don't honestly know what I believe. I sometimes find myself "talking to God" while I walk alone, but what am I really talking to?

While I do, I make a lot of sense...
My faith in some sort of higher power has grown through reading so many of these stories.

Why do I read them?
I plan to commit suicide not long from now...

I know what I will be doing may be classed as wrong by some of you, but, honestly, who are you to judge?

I read somewhere that, while trying to talk a person out of committing suicide, you NEVER tell them to think about the people that love them and so forth. They/we ALWAYS think of those people...

Telling someone in that situation something like that will only push them further than recognising what you want them to recognise, so re-think what you're going to tell the next suicidal person that posts here...

I am sorry to say this, but I can not find peace here. I can not find happiness or relief in any way. I am skeptical towards religion, but with good reason...

In all fairness:
Who, in their right mind, could feel happy here? This world is full of lying, deceiving cowards who don't honestly know left from right, and rapists, murderers, drug dealers, the ignorant, and the blinded and brainwashed...

We're doing this to ourselves here, and my suicide will be simply because I'm tired of it; simply because I don't feel this is right, and, most importantly, because I want these people to realise.

I want to do something more, but I don't want to feel as though I have to take any more lives than my own to get their attention, for just 2 seconds...

Yes, you may be thinking that I am nothing but an attention seeker now, and I am agreeing with you. I do not want people to feel sorry for me in any way, and attention seeking through suicide makes absolutely no sense as one would most-likely be dead before they receive the attention they craved...

What I want to do is force the general public of this town, and, if not that many, then just even the small few, into a state of recognition. I want them to see the world, and to stop being so ignorant as to push everything that takes effort aside.

I want them to see why a kid feels so bad that he goes and shoots up his school; why people commit suicide; why people feel depressed and alone; why so many people care more about getting drunk at the weekend than their children at home; why people do the things they do, and I want them to take it in. I want them to finally pull themselves together and do something about it.

I know I may not effect as many as I hope, but I know that I will effect at least a few people, and that's satisfaction enough for me. I genuinely feel that one life in exchange for the recognition of the most important things in life, and the full restoration of all social morals and values is not such a bad thing.

In short:
I want to die to help others.

I will depress them through my actions, and I will most-likely anger them, and make them feel as though they have lost out here, but, once they read what I will leave behind, they will come to see what I would have done.

They won't feel okay, but they won't go on blaming themselves or whatever...

They will just see that it was not a lost cause.

For the past 3 years, I have been living as though I have already been to purgatory, so, in all fairness, I think such a loving and caring God that created the world, knows all and forgives all, will take this cause into consideration while judging me.

I think he/she'll see the way my mind works; the way I act; the way I am, and realise that I did not do such a thing out of pure laziness and so forth.

Once you lose the desire to carry on, you never get it back, even if you think you do.

It's lost. It's gone.

I am in no way supporting suicide through this post... This is my opinion.

This is me saying that suicide CAN be justified, and that only a narrow-minded God would send all victims to this cause straight to hell without at least taking them into consideration. (YES... One by one, despite how hard that'd be, and the amount of time it'd take.)

I'll repeat myself: We have our free will and intelligence. If some of us were not meant to die by suicide, then we would have never been given the idea.

If God did not want me to smoke, he would not have sent me these cigarettes...

If God did not want me to eat, he would not have sent me this food...

If God did not want me to drink, he would not have sent me this water...

If God did not want me to do any of what I plan to do, I would have never been able to think what I think, read what I read and see what I see.

So you see, here's my conclusion:
We're not ALWAYS idiotic beings, and I think depressed people who are angry at the world are the ones in their right state of mind...

Obviously, now I'll have some of you saying I'M not in my right state of mind for thinking that, but each to his own...

Suicide CAN be justified, as much as you'd like to convince yourselves that it can't.

I am not a bad person.
I have a heart.
I care too much, maybe.
I think too much, some might say...

Like I said, though, just one or two people to recognise the truth about the world and actually pull themselves together will be enough for me...

This comes straight from the heart, and nothing more...

I can't do anything, though... So don't ask why I don't stand up...

No one will listen to the angry eighteen year old kiddy, with no education, no money, and who lives on a council estate in a forgotten town in England...

That's another problem.
Wake up, people!

in reply to the person who said:

"If someone commit suicide and think they are going to heaven, they are wrong. God put you, me, and everyone else in this world too enjoy and be happy with our life. When people have problems in their lives, they think killing themselves will solve the problem, but it won't. They will have even more problems when they die and go to hell from suicide. Like people say, God will never put anything on you that you can't handle."

...I don't think God puts things on people that would make people want to kill...the things that people go through that drive them to desire ending their life, I doubt...came from God.

I just recently had an incident where a friend from church ran out into moving traffic committing suicide. Although we all feel much pain and sadness and hope to one day see him again I cannot convince myself that he truly will meet me in heaven. The Bible says that it is through grace we have been saved through faith. If we as Christians have faith in God wouldn't committing a selfish act like suicide show our lack of faith as a Christian? Could we truly call ourselves a Christian? If we are saved through faith then how could anyone who commits suicide go to heaven? God never gives us anything we cannot go through and never does anything intentionally to hurt us. By committing suicide we are giving up on God and the faith that we proclaim we have for him. If I was to commit an act like that I would not expect God to allow me to come in to his kingdom because I gave up on him. I would honestly believe that he would say "depart from me, I knew you not." The Bible also states that no murderer shall inter into an eternity in heaven with him. Would committing suicide not be considered a self murder? I am not saying that there are not situations in which you couldn't go to heaven and who am I to be a judge of that and be committing a sin in myself. I would hope that anyone wouldn't chance it because God gives you life and you die when he chooses and when you intervene on your own life thats straying away from God and taking a chance of not entering into heaven.

I have a question if you are dying of an illness or an afflection which will ultimately end your life like cancer or aids. Your basically already dead, is it a sin to take your life then. I myself ask this question because my friends is dying of such an afflection. He has a wife kid's a family that love's him, he know'sby taking his life he will caused them pain but the idea of them watching him die slowly is even more freighting. He would like to be remember as the man he was not the dying shell which lay'sbefore them. Also the finacial concern of his family trying to keep him alive is unbelievable, it's draining almost every dime they had left. That's not what he wanted to leave behind for them. He believe'sin god and want'sto go to heaven not out of fear of going to hell but to reunite with his family later on. I don't know how to comfort him, I see his point of view. Will he be aloud to reunite with his family if he end's it here and know. Will god accept him into heaven. He is a christian and he is saved. I would hate to see him go but I hate to see him the way he is now even more. He was alive full of energy and it brake's are heart's to see him like this now. He could live another 10-15 years but at what cost. The pain he go's thru is unimaginable as well as the financial cost.

I have read absolutely NOTHING in these responses that even came CLOSE to answering the question posed.  When "Christians" answer a legitimate question so shallowly, it makes them appear to be absolutely STUPID. For example: Saying God will decide is saying no more than saying "I don't know." You people are doing no more than running your mouths to hear yourselves and make yourselves feel good.  Do you REALLY think you have said something worth while?

I think that suicide is selfish. I do think you will go to hell. You're killing a life that god hath given. You're basically throwing up in god's lap when you do it. he made us in his image, he gave us paradise and for what? Us to kill ourselves and others and to pollute the earth? The same earth he made for us to live on. He could have had us live on mars and be weird little dirt creatures. He sent his son to save us and we take it for granted everyday that his son's purpose was to educate us and save us and the ones that were too stupid to accept it and believe it ended up killing him. We weren't satisfied until we had hard evidence that he was the son of god. When he rose from the dead on Easter Sunday he proved to the ones who doubted that he was the son of god. And yet they still turned a blind eye. When you kill yourself you turn your eyes away from god. The devil is the father of all lies and he brings people into the darkness by attempting to bring us into hell so he can torture our souls.

There is no clear answer to that question specifically, but I agree with lj. God works through us all, if he decides that we will take our own life, than that would be the will of God. Actually, suicide would be one of the scariest ways of dying, thus not many of us do it, compared to the whole. I feel under certain circumstances, suicide is an act of courage and not a sin. However, if you have unjustly hurt someone, or more and just want to escape an Earthy justice, you better watch out, cause you got to pay the price some time, or another!

But im not sure because he had respect for God. He committed suicide while being intoxicated. I need to find ways to help my friend think he has a chance.

I just lost our chief Engineer last week to suicide when he hung himself in the company stairwell & that's why I've been reading this blog.  I'm personally a strong believer and a born again Christian but wasn't totally sure of this one and have been seeking an answer myself? I know that even a murderer is forgiven totally (as were the two thieves at Christ's side) if they genuinely accept Christ as the son of the Living God and their only savior.  Christ said, "The only way to my Father is through me".  NO other prophet or religeon will find the way to God's heaven & Christ made that perfectly clear.  That being said, ONLY people who accept Christ "completely" in their heart will attain heaven and once you've accepted Him (this is a heart and soul thing....not just a verbal, religeous prayer or empty following of religeous rituals as too many bad Christian's believe?!) As for hell, the bible's definition of hell is basically " being forever separated from the presence of God".  Now, is God present and what does He think in the matter of suicide?  God allows choices both bad and good as He did in the garden with Adam and Eve.  Evil is done in the total "absense of God" in the person or person's committing the evil.  This is not by God's wishes but rather His wanting His believers to be by individual choice.  Satan is real and as living in our world as God is and he would like you to believe the lie that God loves us no matter how much we break His rules!!  False, completely false!!!  God is love, yes but He also destroyed the world and two cities in His vengeance plus the Pharoah of Egypt and many of his people for severly breaking His rules.  Our modern world is no different and the problems we face are identical.  God loves his "children"....His believers....not just mankind in general!!!  A suicide is a person who puts all faith and decision in THEIR OWN control and pushes God away, not giving Him the opportunity to change their situation, however bad it may be?!  That is not "keeping faith" with your God and therefore separates (remember the definition of Hell) the potential suicide from God and His loving help!  They have by choice chosen to be eternally "separate" from God and have therefore voluntarilly chosen to live eternally in Hell.  God isn't politically correct and neither is the bible!  Read it to know His word.  It has NO errors or contradictions because He has NO contradiction...He is perfect!!  Either "choose" to believe or don't..He gives you that choice and as a previous writer correctly writes..God will give you no more burden than He knows you can handle!  He will test you and task you even more heavily once you're a true "believer" (direct biblical term for God's people) but He will never neglect or forget you once you've given yourself to Him and not to "the world".  Many in the world have said even in this blog that they choose NOt to believe in a God who wouldn't forgive suicide...don't join them in their belief!!  They've just chosen Hell for their final destination.  They don't read or know His word and that's sad but MANY people and family members around you will make the same fatal decision.  Even my brother-in-law who was a Presbyterian minister all his life chose wrong and believed false things as I sadly look back on his life which I so cherished all my life?  Don't be equally foolish!! Go to church (you'll need their support and won't find it at home as too many weak Christians would like to believe?)  So bottom line...politically incorrect and all...YES...suicides unquestionably go to Hell!!!

their is no true religion their is only good and evil it is a war to the death. You choose to be evil or good. Whether you claim to be christian, muslim or jewish, hindu or whatever you may beleive. All the religions are exactly the same. Just as a conversation gets baffled by whispering into one ear and than another and it changes over time, that is what happened with religion. If you remain pure and desire to do good and feel remorse when you are bad than essentially you are good. If you are evil you regret nothing and are proud of the evil you caused. How do you know the bible is the word of god? What if the word of god is in the koran, If god does not accept me into the kingdom of heaven for not knowing the right religion to practice under and i have been a good person than I look forward to burning in hell because then our god would not be an understanding god. I do not fear death and welcome it. I will not feel guilty for not knowing which religion is real. Christians and catholics molest children and do not practice their preachings they profit from eager believers and keep the wealth for themselves. Christians, "americans bring war and suffering. How could these be gods soldiers children chosen people america is the babylon, america is evil and i am ashamed to be an american. There is no need for war, we fight for wealth and care nothing of our earth. If my fellow americans are christian soldiers and god is their leader than he is an evil god and i am not evil as he.

You are so judgmental it makes me sick.I hope your cold, hard attitudes don't push someone over the edge and cause them to just go ahead and kill themselves because they feel so bad about themselves and then have you telling them how stupid and wasteful they are.

It is so easy to judge others isn't it...you have no idea what they are feeling but you can just tell them  "get over it" or "you are given nothing you can't handle"...well guess what...you are wrong...and the huge numbers of suicides world wide prove it...you can scoff and say things about these people all you want but they were in so much pain they ended their lives and you may have helped push them...hope you feel good about your self righteous selves.

Question i always believed that if you comit suicide you go to hell.About 11 years ago i decided that i would kill myself planned and prepared on the day i felt a great happiness that i cannot explain.I took every tablet i could get my hands on. As i slipped in and out of conscious i realised i did wrong and struggled to get help and am so grateful for life every day no matter how bad things seem.
My freind hung himself on the weekend just passed i did not believe it as i herd a simmilar story 2 years previous but his family denied it.In my job i had access to the mortuary and even though i saw his name on the fridge i still couldnt believe it.The expression on his face fills me with great sadness i do not see relief i see regret and struggle.
If he regreted it but died before saying sorry to god do you believe God knew and would take this into account.I pray that he does.I know we are tested and i hate it when people ask where god is when terrible things happen he is in the same place when we murderd his son on the cross.

My sister killed herself last summer. Before then, I had never really thought about the consequences of suicide, but now it is an everyday wonderment. My emotions are so all over the place. Some days I think I understand, finally, how she must have felt. She was bipolar. She just wanted the pain to end. She felt she was a burden on all of us and she was tired of waking up every single day, dealing with the "thing", the struggle. I can now understand, to some degree, the sorrow she felt. There are days when I too must struggle so much with the sadness her death, her suicide, has caused me. Those are the days when I have thoughts of suicide. I don't think she would have wanted this for me.

Then there are days when I feel so sad for her. I cry and cry because I cannot imagine the emotional pain she must have felt in order to take her own life, and so violently.

Guilt. Why didn't I do more? Why didn't I help her reach out to God? She knew Him and believed in Him but in her state of depression, she couldn't hear Him. I didn't do enough. I should have put her in the hospital, I shouldn't have left her alone, I should have been a better sister. I should have prayed with her. When someone is bipolar, sometimes reaching out can be very scary. She could be quite mean sometimes, her inner-critic caused her to critisize others.
Why didn't I do all that? Because I didn't want to be yelled at? Seems so insignificant now. I would give my own life if I, knowing what I know now, was given another day with her. Is that deserving of an eternity in hell?

No one can know if someone who has killed themselves goes to Heaven or hell. My sister spent the last few years of her life helping people deal with crisis and talking them out of suicide. ironic. Only God can make that judgment. I just pray and pray that he lets her in for she was sick and in such a dark place that she couldn't see any other way out. It was a bright sunny day in the middle of summer, but that didn't matter.
I just hope I see her when she gets there...that's assuming I make it there too.

In my heart of hearts, I believe that when people take their own lives out of despair, mental problems (i.e., depression), or feeling that they are truly a burden to others, then God will be merciful and forgive these people.  I DO NOT believe that people who commit suicide go to hell.  I know of 3 people in my life who took their own lives, and all were wonderful, decent people who suffered from mental illnesses (2 from major depression and 1 from bipolar disorder).  In all 3 cases, medication had been prescribed and tried, but did not help.  If anything, the meds made it worse.  These were beautiful souls who were confused in the midst of their pain and who did what they did out of desperation.  And I believe with all of my heart that all 3 of them are in heaven.  I don't think that God could banish such lovely people from His heaven.  Also, I completely agree with "Whatever"--to read that someone is in pain and possibly considering suicide and then to tell them that they will go to hell if they commit suicide is pretty heartless.  Have some compassion, please, as the Lord urges us to do for one another.  

Love and peace to all of you, and may God bless you all!!

I am suicidal and I am looking for help and I cant find it.I am a christian. I do believe that God is all-powerful. he is a loving god and he is going to under stand. NO you are not going to hell if you commit suicide because life takes so much more than it gives. it is God that has the over all say so.God set life and death before us blessings and curseings so we will choose to be the blessing for life (Deuteronomy 30:19)but some people go through more than others and we just cant take the pain that life brings on us.I am short on time so if you would like to get a hold of me my cell# is 713-502-4297.through everything know that you are loved.if you need prayer give me a call i would be more than happy to pray with you. God bless!!!

I think that when you commit suicide to thy self or another, you go  to hell because suicide attempt means a child trying to kill thy self but still survives. I personally say that I am gonna kill myself but then I think of my future life my family my friends and everyone else that cares about me so I am staying on this Earth as long as I can and I do not want to go to hell, I want to go to heaven. So I'll try to survive Hurricanes,Droughts, and the blow up that is gonna happen in 2012. I hope you will too.

I just lost a loved one who committed suicide. I am a born again Christian. I was concerned about his final destination. After much tears, prayer and research, here is my conclusion on this subject: I can only be sure for myself that I am going to heaven. I cannot "judge" that for someone else. That is not my place.

I think most of us can agree that suicide is wrong and that it is a sin.

There is only one way to heaven and that is by accepting the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ...His blood covers all sin...past...present and future.  It is about a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Yes, He loves us all...sinners and saints. It is not enough to believe there is a God. Even the devil believes there is a God!

Harsh as this may sound, where one goes after they die really should not concern us. We cannot change it. Of course it is always easier to accept death of a loved one when you think they are heaven bound.

For anyone reading this post who is contemplating suicide, I urge you to seek help. I urge you to get spiritual guidance. Remember, there is a spiritual battle going on for YOUR soul! The devil is a liar! I believe that the Lord will reward you for staying alive when He knows how difficult that is for you.

Do all things for His Glory. Pray continually in all things. Amen.

Michelle: I hope you are ok and still with us. I can not answer your question with a yes or a no. I understand you are having a tough time but please dont give up. Yes it is tough to live in this world but it is never to tough to give up.  God will only let you endure what he knows you can handle.  I know first hand that it can feel like too much to endure.  It is not.  Please don't give up.  Everyday is a new day and it will get better.  Michelle, many have tough times.  I myself have been in your shoes.  I am going to keep living and keep praying that God will get me through this.  I will pray for you also.  Your life is special and your are special.  Suicide is perminent and who knows the answer to you question.  Is it worth risking eternity in hell.  Your life here on earth is just a blink of the eye.  You will live forever in with God or in hell.  I know I would not want to take that gamble.  Please seek help there are still people who care and even though I have not met you I care.  May God bless you and keep you.  Howie

Okay, so heres the deal.. Personally i dont think we are the ones to judge. If you believe in Heaven you have to believe in hell though. I think. I Have asked alot of people and they say they have never read anything in the bible about going to hell if you kill yourself. Yeah it is a sin to kill, one of the TEN COMMANDMENTS to be precise. But we are forgiven when we ask right? Right. Not one of us knows what goes on in that persons head in his/her final minutes.. Unless we are there. So honestly do i believe we go to hell or heaven when suicide is Committed? Thats not up to me to judge. I'm very confused on the subject myself. But if you are a TRUE Christian then you would know not to judge. You would know that we are judged the way we judge. So yeah.. IF YOU BELIEVE IN GOD AND BELIEVE JESUS CAME HERE TO WASH AWAY OUR SINS THEN WHAT MAKES THIS ANY DIFFERENT? SINS ARENT RATED ONE FROM ANOTHER KILLING YOURSELF IS JUST AS BAD AS LIEING OR STEALING. I just though i would help some people out. Im not saying i believe the right thing either because im not the person to determine that. HE is!

God is LOVE!

I used Google to find the answer, "do suicides go to hell". I have read all your stuff. Here is my response. God does not want his children to suffer. There are some in this world that are good people and suffer everyday. Well, I know my Bible, I love my God and I know Jesus is my savior. I also know GOd doesn't want me to suffer anymore, I have tried everything but nothing has changed. Everyone around me even says they have never met anyone who has had such "constant bad luck". It is daily, the days become weeks, the weeks become years, and then, the day comes when enough is enough. I am dragging down everyone around me who cares about me,and there aren't many. I'm tired of all the hurt and cruelty I see in the world. I'm tired of people being ugly to one another. I'm tired of seeing people backstab other people with no feelings of remorse. They live their day like there is nothing to be held accountable for. I had cancer and was dying, single mom, husband left me for beer, I have 20 years experience and 3 College degrees and no one will give me a job. My sister knowing I was dying didn't even call me. My sister in law said nothing but cruel words and lies. My brother never even called me to talk to me and he is supossed to be born again. My son is in jail, I gave him everything as a child and knowing I was dying, he never even called me. The only ones that will miss me is my son Shawn, daughter LeAnne, son Ricky and my father. The rest of my family doesn't care about me and I have no friends, they all stabbed my in the back over and over. So, this is my Goodbye. Two bottles of pills, a knife and a bottle of alcohol. Goodbye.......

All who are Christian would be committing suicide all day long if there was no repremand from our Father in Heaven. Knowing the Glory that awaits us, why would be stay on earth? However I do believe strongly that committing suicide is totally against His will for us and killing your self will not keep you out of Heaven if declare Jesus as your Savior, but I'm pretty sure you can forget that mansion up grade with the hot tub and water jugs full of wine!

First of all, I don't recommend taking your life. The way I look at mine is that I am here for other people, if I kill myself I might as well kill someone else. Anyway, as for your question, there is only one unforgivable sin. If suicide is sin, its not unforgivable. Its very confusing, and also, a very controversial topic. Please before you take your life, think about the people who will miss you, and will probably end up taking their lives. Its not worth it. Your here for a reason.
