(2)If a ‘believer’ in Christ commits suicide, it is the motive for the suicide that would determine his eternal outcome.
For example, if the believer committed suicide based upon a premeditated and conscience motive to harm himself OR leave others in guilt or shame or perpetual remorse, OR to escape legal punishment, OR out of cowardice, OR in determined sin, OR out of total rejection of the Faith…there would be no heaven for this individual.Judas Iscariot is one who would fall into this catagory.
