The Bible does not say.However, we do not own our Life.Jesus, bought us with his Blood, it would be wrong to take something that does not belong to us.That being said, God loves us more than we can imagine.When a person commits suicide,he Is not in his right mind.God takes into consideration the mental state of mind,Depression, and do forth.We can be certain that God will do the right thing, if that person was dear to God.This is only speculation.If a person, is thinking the unthinkable?He should pray deeply for forgiveness, and the strengh to go on, and God will give him the strengh beyond their ability.Have faith, trust in God and he will rescue you.Never Give Up!Our Life is precious to him.Talk to someone you trust, and seek help.God will never abandon you, Trust in him, in the name of his Son,Jesus.

Jesus knew that Judas was going to betray him but he still loved him but Judas riddled with guilt hung himself i cannot say if anyone who commits suicide will go and also remember that satan entered into Judas and so saying the guilt from the betrayal caused him to kill himself so i cannot say wither Judas nor anyone else will not go to heaven

Psychiatrist Dr John White’s ‘Masks of Melancholy’ noted how one type of suicide is actually altruistic. And (an overlapping idea) Jesus spoke of laying down one’s life for ones friends (Jhn.15:13). Sometimes the mind is depressed when we get wildly outside our normal operating parameters (nomos), leading to anomic suicide. I think the question arises from a false soteriology: viz, I am only forgiven what I confess; once self-killed I cannot confess, therefore I cannot be forgiven. End of the day I think the only sin that cannot be forgiven is the entrenched attitudinal rejection of God, because such folk will not accept forgiveness since they won't accept God. One can, like demons, believe in God; like them (if they go to church) go to church; like them be damned through genuine hatred of God. C S Lewis pictured a clergyman in hell (The Great Divorce), and an enemy of the church (Emeth) in heaven (The Last Battle). An atheist might simply reject the idea, God, without hating the reality behind the concept: those who formally reject God because they blame him for evil may thus affirm inner love for God by affirming inner love for Goodness.
