For those who believe in heaven and hell....

If a mentally ill person commits suicide, do you think they go to hell? I was always raised to believe this, but I just don't think it could be true. What do you think?

  • Renee, God's grace is conditional. It's conditional on you accepting him, and Jesus Christ, or else. Well that's what all Christians keep telling me anyways. Even though I am a good person and I live a good, honest life, I could never get into heaven, if there is a heaven, because I don't believe in god. That sounds pretty conditional to me!!

  • I believe that the only reason they would go to hell is if they had the mental compacity to actually understand God, who He is and the reject Him. Some metally handicapped people cannot understand this so they would not go to hell.

  • I don't think they will. I'm sure there are some exceptions. God's grace isn't conditional.

  • I do not think they will, especially since they are not in their right mind.

  • well I believe that only God can judge but I do not think that someon that is mentally ill can really be responsible for all we know maybe he wanted to stop his/her pain. I dislike hearing about stuff like that but a mental disability can cause people to do things they may not really know thre doing.

  • Absolutely not, it's the result of an illness.

  • How mentally ill are we talking about? If they know what they are doing, then yes....I believe they will go to hell. I hate it, but that is what I believe.
