Here is why I don't think people who kill themselves are doomed to spend eternity in hell.
I know I'm probably going to regret saying this, but the Bible Says that Jesus went to Hell to preach to people down there. http://www.biblestudyplanet.com/s175.htm
1Pe 3:19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
1Pe 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the long-suffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
Eph 4:9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
Eph 4:10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
and born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell.
On the third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Christian Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
"I don't share the opinion that suicides are certainly to be damned. My reason is that they do not wish to kill themselves but are overcome by the power of the devil. They are like a man who is murdered in the woods by a robber. . . . They are examples by which our Lord God wishes to show that the devil is powerful and also that we should be diligent in prayer. But for these examples, we would not fear God. Hence he must teach us in this way." -Vol. 54:29-. Luther
And in the book of Revelations it says:
Revelation 20: 14 Then death and Hades (the state of death or disembodied existence) were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
15 And if anyone's -name- was not found recorded in the Book of Life, he was hurled into the lake of fire.
Therefore we can make the conclusion hell is not on fire yet, and that Jesus went there to minister to it's inhabitants and that it is possible for people in hell to be saved, and interceded for in prayer. Jesus has victory over Death and Sin.
1 Corinthians 15:55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?
56 Now sin is the sting of death, and sin exercises its power -i--upon the soul- through -the abuse of- the Law.
So people abusing the law, to make accusations against people, or Satan the accuser making accusations against people, causes death.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satan ... Satan is primarily understood as an "accuser" or "adversary" in the Hebrew Bible...
57 But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory -making us conquerors- through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord -always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord-, knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile -it is never wasted or to no purpose-.
Your labor in the Lord is not futile, wasted, or without purpose. Praying for someone after death is not a waste.
There are also steps that can be taken to ensure that no untimely deaths, murders, or suicides happen again, to break Satan's strong holds, to take away whatever legal right he had to cause a death in the first place.
This is done by Asking God for His light on the situation, to see who did what to give Satan the legal right to torment people on the land, in that place, in that family, in that Church, ect.
Then once God reveals that too you, you simply ask forgiveness in Jesus' name by the power of His blood for whoever was involved in giving Satan the legal right to be there and cause death.
Then you hurl down the accuser in Jesus' name and tell Satan that he has no right to come back to be there. You can also post angels in that place to guard it against any further demonic / Satanic attack.
Remember that anyone can give Satan the right to return, or to invade any place and set up camp.
As Sons and daughters of the Father God, and brothers and sisters of Christ we have that right.
"Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
Most everyone I talk too however recommends no one try this alone. People who go it alone when combating the enemy can be overcome easier, and some have killed themselves.
I can also say however that some that have followed this method above have seen people resurrected from the dead simply by forgiving the people responsible for giving Satan the right to cause death in a place, to a person, ect.
