First, we are not to judge anyone's salvation. That is the Lord's job, clearly stated in the Bible. It is not anyone's place to play God, especially on such a painful and serious matter such as suicide. Secondly, God's grace and mercy is greater than any of us could ever attain or imagine. Lastly, if you are truly saved through belief and faith in Jesus, no one can be snatched from Him by man's hands (not even your own since you are man). It states it clearly in the Bible, the infalable Word of God. Suicide is a sin, but Jesus spilled his blood and went to the cross for all our sins. He paid the price for our salvation through Him, yet we dare to debate it. What a shameful disrespect to Him.
---Billy on 4/6/11

Do we need a Scripture for everything, I think not. God gives us, some of us, anyways, Righteous common sense. This Righteous common sense tells me that anyone who commits suicide will go to hell, I do not care if you have a testimony in-which you have been saved for a 100 years.

I have been raised in church all my life but it was only the last few years that I was taught how wonderful and loving our creator really is...this being said...Yesterday a really good friend's husband took a bunch a pills and passed away after a while. I cannot and do not believe that this man will not be in heaven when we get there. Yes I believe this was such a selfish act but God never put in his word that this is not forgivable. I believe that if someone was saved at least at one time,actually repented for their sins and asked Jesus into their hearts, then they are saved! Thank you Lord that you love us so much and they you sent your son to die for us and that Jesus will make his case for him.

To assume that the end of this life is the end of all is not good. And to assume that suicide is the unpardonable sin is not biblical. Jesus Himself said that the sin that can not be forgiven is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. We can take His words at face value. He means just exactly what He says. Jesus says that all other sins can be forgiven, but for this one there is no pardon.
---Richard on 12/26/09

Suicide to me is such a sad thing. Years ago (as an ambulance attendant) I had to transport a 24 y/o hanging victim. It still bothers me 20 years later. I can't say if this is a damnable act or not, I just dont know. But God knows, and he makes no mistakes. Its so sad to think that a person could get so low to resort to this. My heart goes out to anyones family who has had to bear this cross.
---Frank on 11/19/09

It all comes down to what the sin against the Holy Ghost is.

One person said suicide is like abortion and murder. Well, no it isn't.

Remember Saul...the slayer of Christians?? He killed many christians but was converted and not lost. That rules out that murder is not forgiveable.

Now suicide. To the best of my understanding the sin against the Holy Ghost is the ONLY sin that can not be forgiven.

The sin against the Holy Ghost is dying in sin basically, isn't this true? If it is then you can see why suicide is not forgiveable.

If you kill do you ask for forgiveness and repent?
---B_Hall on 8/19/09

The sin of suicide is the same as abortion, murder and the death penalty. We have no right to interfere with God's plan for anyone's life including our own. We don't belong to ourselves.

Pagans of course are required to have the death penalty because the heart is desperately wicked with no Holy Spirit to tame or stop angry passions. If your PO'd just kill the guy.

For Christians who are instructed to die for each other murder and the death penalty is beneath us. We don't need the second because we don't do the first.
---larry on 8/19/09

Mima, thank you for your answer. I also feel the Spirit directs me to a certain place, and out of no where someone is before me without me ever looking for them. That is why I never plan to do something on my own because then I am working on my own idea's and power instead of God's. A long time ago I read a book called, "Experiencing God" and that book opened my eyes to things I was doing wrong. In it he says, "When God is about to do something through you, He has to get you from where you are to where He is" Thanks again, you are very kind. peace I leave you
---MarkV. on 8/19/09

MarkV I was laying on my living room floor praying. I do not remember what about. When the Holy Spirit told me the following," get up and go down to the Sinclair filling station". The Sinclair station was not my regular filling station. Upon entering the station I found five-men talking about suicide. And you know the rest. I only received instruction from the Holy Spirit as to where to go(this of course was not audible). Because I'm so outrageously opinionated I believe the Holy Spirit used me to say what I did in front of these men. And of course one of them really received a blessing!
---mima on 8/19/09

Mima, I only ask you that because I didn't know what the Holy Spirit told you. You answered with, "I stated my views on the subject.(I do not believe suicide in and of itself condemns a person to hell" You only answered with your views which
I also believe as you do, but you still did not say what the Holy Spirit said about suicide. Did He say that people who commit suicide don't go to hell? Was that the message?
Or was the message to go to the station and speak to those five guys?
---MarkV. on 8/19/09

While praying on my living room floor the Holy Spirit told me to get up and go to the certain filling station. I did so. After entering the filling station I discovered five-man talking about suicide and going to heaven. I stated my views on the subject.(I do not believe suicide in and of itself condemns a person to hell. As I walked out the door a man followed me and said, I'm so relieved to hear what you had to say because five people in my immediate family have committed suicide in the last 20 years. I remember being very astounded, first by the Holy Spirit telling me where to go, and secondly that it was so helpful to someone!
---mima on 8/18/09

Another Holy Spirit story. My friend was on a witnessing missionary trip to Monterrey Mexico. He was witnessing in the main plaza there. After witnessing for two days he and his interpreter ended up in the corner of the Plaza where no one was. Now comes a middle-age woman and two young people by, my friend witnesses to the lady and the young people and they walk on. Suddenly the woman tells the young people to stay there and she returned to my friend saying, sir you were sent by God for just this morning I have written a suicide note and left it in my hotel room. We are from Brazil and I have had a bad marriage relationship. And after due thought I decided on suicide and then I met you!!!
---mima on 8/18/09

Surely a message of Hope and God's lovingkindness. Right Mima? It is obvious from the account.
---Nana on 8/17/09

Mima, what was the message you delivered? You did not say. You only mentioned that the Holy Spirit talked to you, that you were led to the gas station, and that you heard this man talking and that one of them was happy you came and talked to them. So why not mention what the Holy Spirit told you? Finish the story so we can hear what it is the Holy Spirit told you to do. Only if its ok with you.
---MarkV. on 8/17/09

There is no statement in the Bible to the effect that one who commits suicide can not go to heaven. Many people have thoughts of harming themselves sometimes during their lives. But a normal person does not attempt to carry out these impulses... it is contrary to the inborn desire for self preservation. The suicidal person is devoid of hope...which not a sin.

I believe God has compassion on these suffering people and that we should reach out to them because they usually can't reach out to others. If you know someone who is extremely distressed or depressed, don't be afraid to ask them if they've had suicidal thoughts. You may be able to guide them to skilled help that may be life-saving.

---Donna66 on 8/16/09

If people are so ill that they can see no other way out, our Loving and Merciful God will surely take this into consideration. Mental illness is a disease with real suffering and we have a Compassionate Creator.

You know God's laws The Ten Commandments which the Government has all but done away with, "Thy shalt not kill". This means ones self too. And if you want God to show His loving kindness upon this nation, this nation had better, whether it wants to or not, BRING GOD'S LAWS BACK. And pronto. Pride, God hates. God has spoken.

Once while praying the Holy Spirit told me to go down to the local filling station. I went to the filling station. On arrival at the filling station I noticed about five-man talking in the office(this number of men talking in the office was very unusual) and when I walked in I discovered they were speaking about suicide and whether or not suicide condems one to hell. As I join the conversation I express my views. After I finished I left the office completely baffled by it all. Suddenly one of the man followed me out of the station and said, I'm so glad to hear what you have said, five members of my immediate family have committed suicide in the past. I believe I was directed by the Holy Spirit to deliver that message for that man.
---mima on 2/14/09

My heart knows that once I asked for forgiveness...I got it. Once I asked Jesus into my heart...he came.

There are things that happen to some of us that are not recoverable/heal-able, at least in this life on earth. There are some rapes or abuse that kill just as surely as cancer. Depression is another disease that sometimes conquers these earthly bodies.

If healing is not given here on earth, it is given in heaven. To say suicide is a sin that cannot be forgiven is akin to saying obese people who have fatal heart attacks cannot be forgiven.

Who are we to ponder who enters heaven and who does not? Surely that is not in our job description.
---Kelly on 2/14/09

I've wondered about this subject to, but in the end God will be the Judge of who sits on His right side and on His left. He will seperate the sheep from the goats. Judas is the only man noted in the scriptures for actually being completely cursed. Jesus says that He has lost none that the Father has given Him, except Judas. At the same time though, the Word tells us that not everyone who says "Lord, Lord" shall enter the kingdom. Judge for yourself. Are you sheep according to scripture or are you goats. The two sound a lot alike, but their actions decide where they sit. Matt 25:31-46

Actually, the Hebrew word used in the sixth commandment is "ratzach", which means "murder", so it really means "thou shalt not murder". Note that this does not prohibit ALL killing, just UNLAWFUL killing. The same Old Testament has all kinds of lawful killing (death penalty for a myriad of crimes, including sabbath-breaking), killing in times of war, relatives of a victim of manslaughter getting revenge, etc., not to mention slaughtering of animals for food, clothing, etc. - all of which are "killing" in English.

However, there is no mention anywhere that directly either permits, or that prohibits suicide (or indirectly prohibits it by declaring it to be murder).
---StrongAxe on 12/5/08

Kiana, if the devil overtakes a person's body, whose fault is it? Please don't feel that your brother is in hell - a person possessed by the devil momentarily or for long periods may not be evil. Some children are possessed by spirits of dead people. We really know very little about these things. Please, be assured that if there was any good in your brother, he will have been saved. The Holy Spirit is our advocate, and will explain to Jesus why things happened the way they did.
---frances008 on 12/4/08

Kiana, how terrible! - having read your post below. You must not judge your brother. This sounds like I am being soft on sinners but truly you do not know whether your brother had a mental problem. You don't know what circumstances were happening in his life. Perhaps some medication had affected him badly, perhaps he took drugs and nobody knew. Please, I beg you to be hopeful that God knows all the details. I don't believe he was evil, but just lost control for a moment. This is not uncommon and you cannot judge a whole life on just one moment of it. Finally, social engineering means that we have lost all former stabilizing effects in our lives. This is a conspiracy that is against families.
---frances008 on 12/4/08

Nothing in the Bible says such a person cannot go to heaven. I like Romans 8:38-39 to show that, if we belong to Him, nothing we can do (even suicide) can change that...

"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Anyone who has read Thomas Hood's poem 'Bridge of Sighs' will receive an education about suicide. Anne's last post was very nice. So many people think that they have it all worked out and know what God is thinking and is planning to do with those who commit suicide. God is compassionate. It is the people who don't help those in a desparate situation, who will be judged harshly for allowing people to go to their deaths.
---frances008 on 12/1/08

Eloy~ You gave a very compassionate response on 8/30/05. We need to look upon people with thoughts of suicide with compassion, and strive to give them hope. This is Jesus' way.

Please listen to the song "For Annie" by the band "Petra" (or at least look up the lyrics.) It is a very compassionate song about a teen who chose suicide...but how we need to strive to give others hope so hopefully there will be less 'Annie's' in the world.
---Anne on 12/1/08

There isn't an answer written in Scripture for every situation, but by His Word, God has revealed to us who He is. He is the most Holy, loving, merciful, selfless, just, wise, righteous being in the universe. When a loved one dies, we can't say for sure whether they go to Heaven or Hell, but it's not our business. It's all in God's hands and we know that we can trust Him :)

about 4 weeks ago my aunt commited suicide, she was schizophrenic and did not recieve the help she asked for from the doctors. i know when she was her true self she wanted to know God and had asked him in to her heart. but when she wasnt herself she would say crazy things. we were really close and i miss her like crazy. i have to believe she's in heaven and i think if the person is sick that god will have mercey on their souls. like how when little kids and people with special needs die and they arent really responsible for their actions and God still lets them go to heaven he'll let her. God is a merciful God and forgivin too.
also i dont think he views it as a sin unless the person is not born again.

No, there is nothing in the bible saying suicide will lead you to hell. I feel that suicide is no greater than any other sin. I also feel that you will not get the chance to repent in the flesh for that sin but you will be able to ask for forgiveness in spirit. With that said i believe suicides go to heaven!
---RUSS on 8/14/07

God's a loving God. That's all there is to it. Jesus backed up the Old Testament teachings in many ways, but in others he threw new light on them. If it is Jesus' words, then it is God's also. God made us all unique, therefore he may treat us all as if we have unique reasons for commiting sins. For example: self-harm. Well the thing is, is that God knows us inside out and God will probably understand.

Gordan, sometimes it's simple and sometimes it's not so. Murder is killing, thats simple. But what about war? Thats murder. What about giving your life to save others? thats murder. What about killing somebody in self defense before they kill/hurt you? thats murder etc. So see..... it's simple yes, but I dont think God will punish all who kill. But thats me. I really dont know, and really nobody knows for sure only God.

THE thing about committing suicide is, you are not giving GOD a chance. AND I don't see how anyone can be serious about it, if they are truly in love with JESUS. BECAUSE, SOMEWHERE in the back of your mind you do not really want to do this, and GOD knows this. THIS is why it is so important to snuggle up to HIM ALOT. AND for goodness sake talk to HIM at the start of trouble.

On Dec 28 2006 my brother shot and killed his girlfriend shot and paralized my boyfriend and shot himself in the head. I've been reading alot to find answers to why he did such a horrible thing. I don't know if it was jealousy or plain hate. I do however believe that his soul will be condemned for the things he done. And since he was not saved I truly believe god will not forgive him his sins. I feel he was sick and overtaken by the devil but he himself committed the sin and will be sentenced for them.

Judas didn't go to hell because of suicide, he went to hell because he didn't, and after he killed himself he couldn't repent of what he done. Some mental illness is caused by demons. All people sin, but only a few of those people repent of their sin. Just because a person believes in Christ Jesus that doens't mean they are going to heaven automaticly. It takes faith and the people that take their lives didn't have faith, and without faith it is impossible to please God.
---Rebecca_D on 3/12/06

drea59002 and taylor: CAREFUL with those sweeping statements about what you THINK the Bible does NOT mention. Saul and his armour-bearer both committed suicide I Sam 31 4-5. It was not uncommon in those days for a military leader to fall on his own sword rather than suffer defeat by the enemy. Judas hanged himself out of remorse. Matt 27:30. But if these men went to Hell, I personally doubt it was because of the suicide.

If a person is not a believer in Jesus Christ for salvation, then they are condemned as the rest of the world that is lost.

Rebecca, look up the word murder in the dictonary. It involves two people not one. No one has the right to committ murder. Killing is not always defined as murder ie: self defense or accidental. Once again, suicide is nowhere mentioned in the bible. No matter how the scripturers are interpreted by humans there is no specific place anywhere in the bible that mentions suicide.

Angela: Your right a person doesn't think about anyone in that state of mind, including God. Killing is not always murder? Okay I would like to see that hold up in court. Suicide is a person whom kills themsleves intentionally. Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy, Jn 10:10, 1 Cor 6:19-20. When one takes their life they are playing God, so what can God do if a person doesn't ask for help from him?

We can say all we like about the rights or wrongs of committing suicide but until/unless we are ever in the position of contemplating it ourselves we cannot possibly know what goes on in the mind of a person just before they do it.

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.

I think no matter what is said or how logical, that God is still in charge of his grace.
The simple fact is that we can reason this again and again, and we have, but what it all comes down to is the righteous judgment of our Lord on a case by case basis...

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:8-9
---Pharisee on 8/30/05

The Bible does not state that anywhere. Many are deeply depressed and not able to think rationally when they kill themselves, proven by the many suicide notes left behind for the survivors. Also many have repented asking God's forgiveness with their dying breaths. God determines whether these go to heaven or to hell. i think it's very sad that so many people are hurting so deeply around us, and without anybody helping them, that they come to think that suicide is the only answer to their pain.

---Pierr7958 on 8/29/05

I have never seen a scripture that specifically says, "Though shall not commit suicide." However, the Bible makes it very apparent the value Jesus puts on our lives. He loved us so much, that He Himself sacrificed His own life to save ours. He purchased us with His own blood. If the Lord puts that much value on my life, then certainly He does not want me to commit suicide. God determines our days on this earth. It is He and He alone who determines when one will die.

Moderator - 10 commandments - thou shalt not murder.

God bless.

Thou shall not kill. Ex 20:13. If a person goes out and kills someone, then later on gets saved or repents, then yes they will go to heaven, but if a person kills themselves then they can't repent for they will be dead.
