Someone asked elsewhere:
“Does a Believer who commits suicide lose his salvation and go to hell?”
Answer: Yes. 1Jo 3:15
I was amazed that nearly everyone in that discussion was saying, “Yes they still go to heaven. But they lose some rewards. David was a murderer. Jesus paid for all our sins, past, present, and future.”
Jesus made forgiveness available through His atonement but you must repent of your sin in order to obtain forgiveness for that sin. There is no repentance for suicide.
I personally know a friend who committed suicide under the belief that he was “once saved always saved” and would simply go to heaven, so when life got hard he hung himself.
This belief that suicides go to heaven ENCOURAGES suicide. I want to discourage it. When I give them counsel, I tell them, “Don’t do it! You’ll go to hell!” And this discourages them.
The Bible says very plainly:
1Jo 3:15 – no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
If you are considering suicide, repent or else you will perish.
