does a suicide person go to heaven
if a person who has faith in christ and commits suicide, do they go to heaven and is fogiven
When you harm your body you are indeed harming to the "holy spirit temple, which is your body"
your body must be a temple of pray and peace, you might not harm it in any way.
Depends how you understand heaven. Going to heaven is not contingent on whether or not you have faith in christ or whether or not one commits suicide. Sure there is a process that happens but eventually peace will come to the person.
no but either does anyone else. heaven is just something created by religion to help control the followers. muslims are promised virgins which i find both funny and sickening.
If a person truly "has faith in Christ" then they will follow His teachings.People who kill themselves do so because their minds are consumed with hatred;hatred of themselves,others who have harmed them and sometimes of God who they blame for not resolving their problems for them.
The "thou shalt not kill " commandment is usually quoted to counter suicidal impulses but more meaningful is Jesus' teaching on love and forgiveness which should be applied to all enemies,both personal and global:
Luke 6:27 (New King James Version)
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
(which include you yourself)
For those who insist in ending their life in a mad fit of rage and forgiveness, then these verses will apply:
Galatians 5:19-21 (New King James Version)
19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Mark 11:25-26 (New King James Version)
25 “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
From my experience of spirituality any person who has committed suicide is forgiven and will go to heaven. When we first cross over, we judge ourselves and how best to undo the wrongs we have done or things we could have done better.
Secondly working as a nurse for many years, people who do make genuine suicide attempts are not bad people - they are hurting deep inside and feel they are lost to themselves and society, that the world would genuinely be better off without them, so it is their way of saving more pain to those they love - although the people that are left can't see it that way. But people who take their own lives are in a different and unique mindset from the rest of us and can only see the world from their side, therefore they think taking their life is the best for everyone.
But yes, whatever their or your intrepretation is of 'Heaven' they will not be excluded and love and forgiveness is always on hand in addition to spiritual healing and growth.
Hope this helps.
you don't destroy Gods temple. If you wrong God you ask for forgiveness; hence with which life will a person who has (committed suicide) destroyed God's temple ask for forgiveness.
