how does religion view suicide..? will someone who has committed suicide go to hell..? who's to blame in that situation, the person who committed the act or god himself..? before most people jump to god's defence, the fact that a person cannot take any more and so commits suicide could be said to be a lack of judgement on god's part
It depends which religion and which sect within that religion you're contemplating.
Jesus' death was suicide, wasn't it?
Suicide bombers become martyers, don't they?
Mothers who don't abort sometimes die, don't they?
There's a multitude of examples possible, I've chosen a few of the more extreme.
Would "religion" judge suicide differently between someone who's clinically depressed (out of their hands), suicide bomber (poverty and helplessness) or Son of God (dying for someone elses sins)?
