  • the truth? i don't know. no one holds the keys to eternity (but God, if you're a xtian.) although, logically speaking, if you're dead, you can't talk, so how would you be able to ask forgiveness? maybe people who commit suicide DO ask for forgiveness right beforehand...

  • Everyone has different views on this whole thing. I personally do not think suicide is the biggest sin of all. I think crimes against children are. And I also believe that in some circumstances, God sees the person's pain and hurt, and sees that some of their lives are really a living hell...not that that makes suicide okay, but I believe in God's eyes, he might find compassion for those people and understand why they couldn't find the strength to go on. But yes I do believe its true that once you die, there is no asking for forgiveness. I believe you can only ask for forgiveness in your mortal life and once you die, the book is closed and your fate is sealed.

  • Suicide is a cry for help. Granted, taking a life is a sin, even if it's your own. But God looketh on the heart. He understands your real intentions.

  • I always wondered this to, I ask my pastor one day he said he cant find one thing in the Bible that says you will go to Hell if you commit suicide as a Christian. Once Saved always Saved, but if you are not saved you will go to hell. I hope you are not considering this though!

  • I believe a saved person can commit suicide. I've seen it (not literally) happen before. According to the Bible, if you are saved, then you're going to heaven. So if you are saved, and commit suicide, then you go to heaven. It does not matter if you are able to ask forgiveness after the fact. Once you are saved, your sins are washed away and you can enter into heaven. But you cannot get saved after you die.
