If I commit suicide, do I go to hell?

BibleAsk TeamPosted on

Suicide is never the answer. God is. Before you contemplate ending your life you need first to give the Lord a chance to bless your life. The Lord says, “Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3).

If you suicide you are ending God’s plans for your life. You will be violating God’s clear command that says, “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:13) which is a sin that leads to death (Romans 6:23). The Bible teaches, “without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6). Faith is the opposite of hopelessness. Committing suicide means that you have lost all hope in life and have given up. And in reality, you are sealing your destiny to hell.

Life is a precious gift from God. And it is a sin to take it away. Jesus loved you unto death (John 3:16). When a person ends his life, he is throwing God’s love away and making His sacrifice of no effect to himself. Jesus is waiting with open arms to love, bless, and comfort every hurting person “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). God will give His children more than they ever hoped for “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20). So, trust the Lord that He may turn your life around.

Invite the Lord into your heart and pray: “My Heavenly Father, come into my heart, be my Lord. I put my trust in You. Forgive me, cleanse me, and restore my joy and faith in You. Thank You for hearing my prayer. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.” Rejoice for the Lord will surely answer your prayer. And then connect yourself to God through daily study of His Word and prayer that your may find God’s plan for your life.
