Does Committing Suicide Consign Someone to Hell?
by RI Editors
This forum question is a part of our Peculiar Minds series.
Many people whose loved ones have ended their own lives face a double sorrow: not only have they, often quite out of the blue, lost someone they loved dearly, but they also must reconcile what will happen to their loved one’s soul. Our faith teaches great reverence for life, and the fact that David’s soul, after having senselessly cut short Uriah’s life, was never to be exalted, casts great doubts on the future of one who takes his or her own life. This can be excruciating for families whose sealing bonds now seem strained beyond resolution.
