Suicide is the Unforgivable Sin: We are the holy temple of God
Romans 8:9; Ephesians 2:21; Hebrews 3:6
Yes, Suicide is the Unpardonable Sin As the Indwelling Holy Spirit is Blasphemed Within the Body
5-8-20, * -- Since the Coronavirus pandemic began former Congressman Patrick J Kennedy says calls at suicide hotlines have increased by 800 percent as resources shift to insufficient COVID-19 relief as jobs disappear and businesses shut down.
Understanding what God says about suicide scripture from the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ which was given post-crucifixion and post-resurrection to the Apostle Paul:
"Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? IF ANY MAN DEFILE the temple of God, HIM SHALL GOD DESTROY, for the temple of God is Holy which temple ye are."
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
According to Strong's Concordance the word "defile" is word G5351 which used in context here means "destroy."
The Holy Word of God says that because the Holy Spirit dwells in us; in our body - we are the holy temple of God.
Therefore, if any man were to destroy his own - God's holy body by suicide, "HIM SHALL GOD DESTROY".

[Note: Also a person who has killed themselves cannot repent for forgiveness. Luke 13:3]
What is Blasphemy?
The Lord Jesus stated that “all sins” can be forgiven — except for the specific blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. “Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but to him who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven."
This verse from Luke 12:10 gives answer:
“who speaks a word against” and “who blasphemes” are parallel.
Blasphemy, then, is a verbal sin and it's desecration of the holy character of God. It can involve insulting Him, mocking Him, or dishonoring Him & persons who is born again with the indwelling Holy Spirit who murders themselves - are committing blasphemy of the Holy Spirit; the desecration of God's creation.
Seven People Committed Suicide in the Bible:
<-- In each of the six instances of suicide, their deaths are shown in an unfavorable light. They were ungodly men acting in desperation and disgrace.
In the seventh death, Samson's case was different:
7. Samson (Judges 16:28-31) By collapsing a building killing the God hater Philistines, Samson sacrificed his own life in martyrdom. While his life was not a model of holy living, Samson was honored among the faithful heroes of Hebrews 11:32. And in his final act he called upon God to allow it: “O Lord God, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!” (Judges 16:28)
"Christ as a Son over His own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end."
