Salvation

 

 

15. Will a believer who commits suicide be saved?

 

 

No, he will not be saved, because if a believer kills himself, he is guilty of murder (even though he does not kill another person but himself, he does a thing that he must not do because God alone has the right to take away his life) and the Scripture says that murderers will not enter the New Jerusalem, as it is written: “Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie” (Revelation 22:14-15 – NKJV). Murderers will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Revelation 21:8).
