A friend committed suicide. One of my business partners says people who commit suicide go straight to hell. Is that what the Bible teaches? I need to know.

Jesus teaches us to speak to God as Father, right? What about adults who address the Lord as "Daddy"? Are they out of line? Question and Answer Eccentric, I'd say, but possibly not out of line.
