..do you believe that a mentally ill person would go to hell if they committed suicide?

I just know a lot of people say the only "unforgiven" thing is to take your own life..so i'm just curious what some of the responses will be.

  • No I don't think so. If they are truly mentally ill, they cannot be held fully responsible for their actions.

  • I think we have no idea what is running through someone's mind and therefore can not say what their final thoughts are-
    I also do not believe that suicide is a sure ticket to hell-
    I believe hell is for hypocrites-

  • I don't believe in hell, or that God is that unforgiving that He wouldn't understand or have compassion on someone in that position in the first place.

  • I don't beleive in hell. There are laws of the universe. We have our own lives and experiences and should not judge anyone for what choice they made. The hardest lesson in my opinion is to forgive and love unconditionaly, and to not judge anyone. My Dad had mental illness and he was scared that someone was coming to get him, he took all his heart medication and passed away. I know he planned it because he left notes for all his children. I never once thought he went to a bad place. As a matter of fact, he came to me in a dream and said he was ok.

  • Not my belief system - but if the rule must be all suicides go to hell, how could they not?

  • You already know my answer... re: only those who deny Jesus will not go... yet GOD looks at the deep recesses of the heart of mankind and judges. The Word of God is specific.

    Mental illness can be healed btw. Read the demoniac man story. That was a classic case of mental illness brought on by demonic forces.
