Suicide?

Growing up I was always told from my Grandparents and Lutheran pastor that if you commited suicide you would go straight to hell, Well a member of my church now( I belong to a fellowship of christian assemblies church) shot himself on Saturday. I really think that he is in heaven. I mean while he did do it I think his mental illness took over. I just don't know I guess there is still a small part of me that keeps hearing my grandparents say straight to hell....... What do you guys think?

I don't believe suicide means you go straight to hell

Heaven and hell do not exist, nor does "God"

Someone who comitts suicide has lived a tortured life. Any respectable God/gods/goddesses wouldn't cast a tortured soul to hell for ending their own suffering.

I think he is in the ground, and out of suffering.

I'm not very religious but I believe that God forgives. I mean, he takes care of the sick, right? So I would think he would be understanding in this case, forgive the man and he'll go to Heaven. And in Heaven, God will comfort him :).

I don't believe in heaven or hell.  Athiest here.  However I've been there, not with a gun but with every pill in the house, followed by some bleach.  From being there, in that place, I hope that God would understand and give them some happiness after death.  They need it.
