Jesus forgave all of those who took part in his crucifiction. Many christians seem to be troubled by the fact that judas may very well be in heaven and I don't know why. My parents and I discussed this som time agao, and my mother thinks he'll go to hell.
If you look at the story of the new testament, none of it would have been possible without Jesus and Judas. I'd say he played his part and met his destiny as he should. Should he be damned eternally for leading the act that Christians would consider the salvation of the world?

I just am....the God I worship is like doG to me...God is ever faithful and loving, willing to let go of transgressions and be joyful in the moment. I believe in healing and reconciliation between people and between people and God.
Judas repented although he then killed himself which religious institutions will say is "sinful". My God is greater than that, That is people's need to control and judge. God desires us, loves us passionately without conditions or limitations. Frankly, that is a bit beyond (a universe and a bit) my ability to comprehend but it is what my heart believes.
We had a thread not too long ago on Judas: http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?threadid=25266
