Christians and suicide?

So as most of you know a man named Jared Wilson ( a proclaimed pastor ) committed suicide and his wife and congregation now says he is in heaven. Hmmmm ok...Lets see what the word of God says. Jared had a wife and 2 baby boys and he left them behind, what does God has to say about someone who does that? Apparently people think God is quiet on the issue but he is not...

According to 1st timothy 5:8 " Anyone who does not provide for his relatives, Especially those in HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever" Jared had a God given responsibility to take care of his family but he decided not to and took his life leaving his wife and to baby boys to fend off and provide for themselves. Also not that that the scripture did not say and unbeliever being worse than an unbeliever it was mentioning a person of faith who denied it. Because they had knowledge of God and knew what God wanted them to do unlike the pagans who don't..the fact that you knew makes you worse than the unbeliever because they dont know God and they still take care of their family.

Also Hebrews 11:6 says " And without faith it is impossible to please God. He who comes to him must believe that his is and that he is a rewarded for those who diligently seek him.

So jared denied his faith In God and people say he still goes to heaven.so if he dint need faith to enter Gods kingdom then explain how their are people in hell who didn't have faith either. faith would be pointless..replies?

    Death by violation of one of God's Commandments - "Thou Shalt Not Kill" - is not a good way to leave this Earth and appear before God in judgment. However, one who commits this sin is obviously suffering from extreme emotional/mental duress, and we can one;y hope that God will take that into sonsideration in judging that person.

    A person can battle the culture of death and can know true joy and meaning in life by reciting the rosary every day with care.
