I hurt like I never new possible now, it's just our son and I

Yes. She isn't suffering anymore. I'm certain she'd want you to focus on taking care of your boy now, and nothing else. Someday, you'll all be together.

The Bible says that anyone taking their own life cannot enter into heaven. I am not her judge and cannot say....God is the only one who knows. I do wish you the best, and may God bless you and your son.

Does it say that? Or is that YOUR brainwashed interpretation? Great compassion for a mourning man btw. Jesus may have the same compassion for you as well.

The word "suicide" is not in the Bible. But, here are 58 verses pertaining to taking one's own life.
http://www.openbible.info/topics/suicide

Your body is God's temple, and God will destroy anyone taking his temple. It really depends on how one reads the Bible about suicide.
Some say taking your own life leads to Hell; others say that once you become a Christian, taking your own life doesn't matter.
Brainwashed?? I beg your pardon SoozeeQ. A mourning man needs the truth, not just a "washed over" account. The truth may never be known.
I am 71 years old, a Christian and chuch goer for many many years. You??

fredg, I looked over the verses in that link, and most of them have either no real connection to suicide or only a very tenuous one. Only the first one really supports your position with any clarity, but then another of the verses in that list seems to say the opposite: "I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand." In fact, several could be more supportive of the belief that the Christian who commits suicide is protected by his/her Savior. And the first verse, the only one that supports your view at all, is not without question. Interpretation is properly done by looking at all verses on the subject and coming to the most consistent conclusion, and I would include the verse where Christ says there is only one sin that cannot be forgiven, and that is not suicide.

theres no way of knowing...dont listen to anyone saying shes in hell...thinnk about it, how could god send someone to hell because of one "bad" decision...if she was a good person she deserves to go to heaven and god will probably accept her..thats just my belief and i think im right:)

I agree, god knows our strengths and weaknesses only he knew what really troubled her and he is a loving god.
Report as
God is a loving God, but it was all about what jesus did on the cross. He died for our sins, but if we never make the decision to trust in him and confees that we are sinners and in need of a savior (jesus), then we will end up in hell. i believe in exceptions though...children. Once you are the age to decide for yourself, then you have to make that desicion. It is not about our goodness. We could never keep the 10 commandments by ouselves. thats why we needed someone who could ultimately save us from our sins once and for all. If she and anyone else truly believes in jesus and confessed it with her mouth... she will be in heaven. EVERYBODY sins! Since that is true wouldnt that mean no one will go to heaven? It means those who trust in jesus will. The ones who choose recieve forgiveness from God.

It is a matter of opinion. I personally, think it depends on the soul. If she left for reasons that she felt God would understand, then yes, I think she would go to Heaven. I am so sorry for your loss. I do think she is in heaven because she left for unshelfish reasons. she left because she felt there was something evil bound to her. God will understand. In the Bible it says that God is understanding and suicide is a subject that God sways on.

I dont know but there are several kids on this site really hurting and wanting to die maybe you could use your pain to find a way to help them and in turn help yourself. Ive tried to comit suiside many times and still think about it. seeing how much it hurts others and realizing that someone actually cares might stop someone else from taking their lifes. sorry for you loss no matter where she is Im sure she knows you care now

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I hear your pain. It sounds like she had a tortured soul. Probably from past abuse. Suicide is not the unforgivable sin people say. I'm sure God knows the heart. God bless you and your family!

Why did you say demon inside of her? That is the big issue. I'm christian, and suicide is i think something that affects whether you go to heaven or not, but im not sure....if she loved God and she actually was possessed, i think she is ok...but seriously, were u serious when u said tht? why hasn't anyone noticed???

First of all, she was possessed by demons. That means she wasn't a true Christian. Second, if one commits suicide, something evil has infiltrated their mind. God has plans for everybody. His plans don't involve some one killing herself. I'm sorry to say this, but she isn't in Heaven. I'm extremely sorry for your loss. But whenever some one commits suicide, they're not going to Heaven.

Are you ignorant? Did you flush your compassion down the toilet also? Judge NOT! Jesus may show as much compassion for you as well. Unbelievable!!!

Yeah, he shows compassion, but if some one kills herself, that's a sin. And she's dead, so it can't be forgiven. If she had been a Christian, she would've asked God for help. I know you don't want to believe it, but she's in Hell.

Eccl. 9:5

I'm so sorry for your loss and your wife's pain. The Bible comments on the condition of the dead and a beautiful hope for our dead loved ones. At Ecclesiastes 9:5 it states, "For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all." Therefore, according to this scripture, she is no longer in pain.

Additionally, God holds out this wonderful promise for us and our loved one who have fallen asleep in death. At Revelation 21:3,4 it states, “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Just think, you can see her again truly happy, hear her laugh and hold her.

Aside from this, I encourage you to read, "Real Hope for Your Loved Ones Who Have Died". You can find it here: http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/bible-teach/real-hope-for-your-loved-ones-who-have-died/

I hope this has helped you and brings you some peace.

The judgement we placed on whatever state her heart was in when she passed. Sins are only sins if the were intended to harm or unjustifiable. I still don't understand why she wanted to take her on life. I can't imagine things being that bad for her. As a good husband whatever demons she had you should live in her honor so things like this don't continue. Sort of like the story by Emily rose!

Quite honestly do you really think God follows a rule book? Do you think he rejects everyone who commits suicide just because they commited the act? Nobody commits suicide in a right state of mind, so it wouldn't be fair to say a person deserves to go to hell for committing suicide. God is forgiving, and he will most definitely allow her to enter into heaven. God loves unconditionally and it would be foolish to believe that someone would go to hell for taking their life.

My heart truly goes out to you and your son over this great loss to your family. Many have wondered whether or not God understands when persons go to the point of taking their own lives. But in the Bible he reveals that he does understand. Note what he says in his Word at Ecclesiastes 7:7 "For mere oppression may make a wise one act crazy, and a gift can destroy the heart."

Yes, God acknowledges that at times people feel driven by force of circumstance to do what they otherwise would not do. Some may even commit suicide in an effort to bring about what they perceive as a solution to their trials. Rest assured that Jehovah and his Son Jesus Christ feel your pain and sense of loss. And that one day, by means of his Son Jesus, God will bring back to life your beloved wife in the resurrection to come. See Acts 24:15.

It is fruitless to speculate on what future a person has who has committed suicide. Only Jehovah and his appointed Judge, Jesus Christ, can say what was in the heart of a person who ended his own life. The important thing is to put the tragedy behind one and commend the dead one to Jehovah, the “Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort.”—2 Corinthians 1:3.
Today, what a relief it is to know that God is not responsible for wickedness! His Word identifies a wicked spirit, “the one called Devil and Satan,” as the one who is “misleading the entire inhabited earth.” But his time is running out. (Revelation 12:9, 12) Soon, all the distress that Satan and his demons have brought upon earth’s inhabitants will end by divine intervention. Then God’s promised new world of righteousness will bring about a permanent end to the causes behind hopelessness and suicide.—2 Peter 3:13.

Yes, if she believed in God she is truly one of God's chosen, his elect, 1st. Corinthians ch. 5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed. She is in heaven. Take comfort and you will be with her again in the spirit. You have to separate flesh from spirit.

I'm so sorry for your loss, but you said demons yes they are real. If she was sick or had emotional problems, we are not here to judge but to comfort, Christ is our comforter. She is still in heaven, she may be on the other side of the gulf. Luke Ch. 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed; so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Hope you have comfort. She will be fine, God is taking care of her she is his child as we all are.
