    ALWAYS REMEMBER WHAT CONSTITUTES A MORTAL SIN OR IT IS NOT A MORTAL SIN AT ALL.>>>>>>>

    There are three conditions for a sin to me a mortal sin:

    1) The object must constitute grave matter

    2) Full knowledge that the act is sinful

    3) Committed with deliberate consent of the will

    THERE ARE VENIAL SINS TOO BUT THEY ARE NOT DEADLY SEE HERE>>.

    https://www.ewtn.com/expert/answers/mortal_versus_...

    If a person commits a Mortal Sin and has no way of going to confession before his death, he has only one chance of forgiveness: an Act of Perfect Contrition. But it must be said before death. If this is not made, he goes straight to Hell for all eternity.

    IF A PERSON WHO SIMPLY HATES LIFE OR DOES NOT WANT TO PUT UP WITH ANY KIND OF SUFFERING KILLS HIMSELF, ITS A MORTAL DEADLY SIN, DO YOU TRULY THINK THEY ARE GOING TO HEAVEN? IF THAT WERE THE CASE WHY DOES NOT EVERYONE JUST KILL THEMSELVES AND SAVE THEMSELVES FROM THE AGGRAVATION AND INCONVENIENCES IN THIS VALLEY OF TEARS AND TELL GOD HERE I COME WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. YOU WONT MAKE IT TO HEAVEN THATS FOR SURE. REMEMBER ALWAYS YOU CANNOT FOOL GOD, HE KNOWS YOUR EVERY THOUGHT BEFORE YOU EVEN THINK THEM >>>>>>>>>>>>

    BUT ALSO SOMETIMES STRESS PLAYS TRICKS ON OUR MINDS AND WE MAY DO SOMETHING WE ORDINARILY WOULD NOT DO. GOD TAKES ALL THIS INTO CONSIDERATION ON JUDGMENT DAY, GOD'S LOVE AND MERCY IS SO GREAT HE WILL SCRUTINIZE EVERY MORSEL OF THOUGHT THAT WAS GOING THRU THEIR MIND BEFORE DEATH AND IF ONE THING IS MISSING THAT WOULD ORDINARILY CONSTITUTE A MORTAL SINS, YOU CAN BE SURE THAT THEY MAY JUST VERY WELL BE IN HEAVEN WITH JESUS(GOD). BUT REMEMBER, YOU CANNOT FOOL GOD, EVER. PLEASE READ THIS AND DONT GIVE UP PRAYING FOR THEM >>>>

    THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH DOES NOT SAY ANYONE WHO COMMITS SUICIDE GOES TO HELL BUT

    the CATHOLIC Church teaches is that anyone who commits a mortal sin and does not repent before death goes to hell. Mortal sin requires three conditions: grave matter, full knowledge of the gravity of the action, and full and free consent to the action. If any of those three conditions are missing, there is not mortal sin. All we can say for certain is that suicide constitutes grave matter. Given the fact that people who take their own lives often are very ill or under psychological stress, those factors can impede their knowledge and consent, making their actions tragic but not mortally sinful. Only someone who freely chooses to commit suicide with full knowledge of the gravity of the sinfulness would commit mortal sin by his suicide. Even then, between unconsciousness and final death, God might offer the person one final chance to repent, even if such an opportunity is not apparent to us

    The Church says this about the eternal destiny of those who have taken their own lives: "We should not despair of the eternal salvation of persons who have taken their own lives. By ways known to him alone, God can provide the opportunity for salutary repentance. The Church prays for persons who have taken their own lives"! PLEASE SEE LINK TOO?

    NOTE, VERY IMPORTANT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    BECAUSE, IT IS THE ULTIMATE OF THINKING OF YOURSELF AND NOT OTHERS AS WITH FAMILY AND LOVED ONES AND MOST OF ALL JESUS(GOD INCARNATE)

    DONT FORGET THIS EVER, WHEN YOU MAKE THE SIGN OF THE CROSS YOU FIRST START WITH AN UP AND DOWN MOVEMENT AS IF TO FORM AN ( i ) THEN YOU CROSS IT OUT BY THE FINISH OF THE SIGN OF THE CROSS FROM LEFT TO RIGHT. NOTICE HOW THE JESUS ON THE CROSS IS TELLING YOU TO FORGET YOURSELF AND MAKE GOD FIRST, THINK ABOUT IT.

    Yes, it is murder.

    Yes.  It is murder.  But for believers in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior,  all sin is forgiven.  Refer to  Romans 8:38, 39.  But remember, we will all stand before the judgement seat of Christ and give account of our actions.

    Yes, its a crime in the Eyes of God and taking your own life is still a life that you are not allowed to take. No one is allowed to cut a life unjustly and taking your own life is still a crime and a sin. God will not give paradise to those who commit this crime and if they commit other crimes and didn't sincerely repent to God. Criminals will be treated like criminals when they leave this world if its too late and will have to face the consequences.

    Unknown, IMHO probably, but not necessarily.

    Jdg 16:28 Then Samson prayed to the Lord, “Sovereign Lord, remember me. Please, God, strengthen me just once more, and let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes.” 29 Then Samson reached toward the two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other, 30 Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived.

    It appears according to Heb 11:32 that Samson died in God's good grace.

    In my experience, most adults who have committed suicide have a whole lot more sins they never repented of that they will answer for at the judgment (or they never became a Christian whereby they could be saved).  Their suicide may not even be brought up.

    Suicide is a form of murder, so Yes, it is a sin. 

    I wouldn't recommend it.

    It's stupid.

    if Christians are right, people who commit suicide go to hell for eternity, so it doesn't actually fix anything.

    If atheists are right, there's nothing after this life, and you are throwing away an entire lifetime over what is probably a temporary problem.

    If I'm right, you'll just be reincarnated, and your new life will be even worse than the last.
