  1. The soul of a suicide goes to hell, because according to the church, suicide is a grave sin, so earlier suicides were not buried in the cemetery or even buried in the cemetery. There is no second chance for the soul of a suicide.

  2. There is one big contradiction in religions

    in all religions, there are sins that God has committed

    what else does God do? Writes destinies,

    it turns out that all of our accomplished cuts are prescribed by God, all prayers are not sincere, orientation, suicide, murder, everything is prescribed by God, which means that we commit sins according to the will of God, that is, he forces us to commit terrible acts to send us to hell, that is, he lies to all religious people, in lies it is a sin

    That's why I'm an atheist

  3. I will say this, there are a lot of incomprehensible people who write what they want, without understanding the essence. The Bible says that the penalty for sin is death, death not for the body, but for the soul, when a person loses all opportunity to change something and go to heaven after an earthly life. But there is One person, this is Jesus Christ (God in the flesh) who grew up and lived as an ordinary person, died for Us all and who lived before us, so that by accepting His redemptive sacrifice, He could become a different person and go to heaven after His earthly life, but when a person commits suicide, whether he believes in Christ or not, he loses the opportunity to This is a difficult topic to explain, and it is not enough for one paragraph. I do not know the reason why you asked this question, but if you write about what you want to do with yourself, then think a million times, otherwise there will be nothing to regret later, what awaits a person after such an action.

  4. I can only talk about the religion to which I belong. From the point of view of Orthodox Christianity, the soul of a person who has not repented of the sin of suicide (suicide in Orthodoxy is de facto recognized only as intentional deprivation of life outside of some external circumstances-for example, heroic feats, etc.) falls into the threshold of hell. Such a threshold of hell is a temporary place of stay until the Last Judgment, and after the Last Judgment, the soul of the suicide is waiting for reunion with the body and “eternal death” in “gehenna of fire”, that is, an eternity of torment. The exception is also made by suicides who were in a state of temporary unconsciousness or an attack of mental illness (psychosis, clinical depression), because they could not prevent their suicide and it did not happen of their own free will.

    The harsh attitude towards suicide in Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity is caused by the fact that this sin usually precedes bodily death, and as you know, you can repent of your sins during life. The chance that a suicidal person, even in their heart, will have time to sincerely repent and change in the minutes before entering a new, spiritual world is close to zero (regret and fear of death do not count). After all, according to the Orthodox faith, hell and eternal death are primarily states of the human soul, which cannot get rid of, “gets stuck”, “ossifies” in its sin. You can get rid of it only in life, after the Last Judgment comes eternity, and in eternity there is no “now” and “then”, there is no time, and where there is no time, there is no change.

    It remains to touch upon a question that is often raised on the Internet, namely, what is the sin of suicide. The sin of suicide is essentially threefold – the sin of despondency, the sin of murder, and the sin of blasphemy. Suicide occurs on the basis of a certain state of mind in which a person falls and which in the language of Orthodoxy is called despondency and is considered a mortal sin. Despondency, in contrast to depression, is a person's strong-willed focus on causing themselves mental suffering and getting pleasure from suffering (depression is when a patient suffers without having any strong-willed forces to change themselves for the better, despondency is when a person has the strength, but does not want to change themselves). A sick person with the sin of despondency torments both himself and others. The logical end of despondency is the act of suicide itself, which combines the sin of murder (yes, killing yourself in the eyes of God is the same as murder, God doesn't care who you killed, yourself or another) and the sin of blasphemy (in fact, the suicide tells God – “I don't need to live anymore, there will be nothing good in my life anymore, no changes for the better”, and this is a theft of the properties of the Deity, only God has omniscience and knows what will happen to us tomorrow). I'm not talking about the sufferings of the suicide's relatives. Often such people can not recover from their suffering and spend the rest of their lives looking for meaning in the actions of a relative. I went to their forum, it's scary to read. So in their troubles there is also the fault of the deceased, and it also falls on his conscience, and he will see his loved ones face to face on the day of the Last Judgment.

    As for the” chances”, alas, they do not exist in eternity. The only consolation that can be said to those close to them is that their suicidal relative will receive from God only what he himself wanted in life, and alas, at the time of death, he only wanted non-existence. So he will receive “eternal death”, a state very close to non-existence. As the Christian writer C. S. Lewis said, “the doors of hell are locked, not from the outside, but from the inside,” that is, all people who do not want to be in hell will not be in hell. In hell there will be those who are unbearably hurt and afraid to see others and who hate God. Some Orthodox philosophers even wrote that the identity of people in hell will be almost destroyed by the feeling of regret and agony of being abandoned by God and people. After all, at the moment of the Last Judgment (that's why it's terrible) the very conscience of such a person will condemn him and he will be given to see what he can never achieve.

  5. For example, it will end up in a different body without being able to select it. He will live a different life and not be killed, but it's a pity that he will have to live again, and knowing that he was a suicide in another life will not work
