I have to go anon on this one for family reasons.
My neighbors are devout Baptists. His sister committed suicide a few years back. She left behind 4 little kids. So sad, right? What I'm not understanding are the FB posts saying how she is in heaven smiling down on them, in heaven blessing them from above, their heavenly guardian angel....etc.
Committing suicide sends you to hell, according to their religion. She's not in heaven, she's in hell for killing herself and leaving those babies without a mother.
Hypocrites or right?

I don't think so, not every person believes every word of their chosen religion; suicide is one of those things Christians can't seem to agree on, especially on an individual level.

No, this is their belief. If they personally didn't state that people were going to Hell while at the samething posting this on FB, they aren't hypocrites. People have their individual thoughts and beliefs even if they follow the core beliefs of a group or religion. They are grieving.
