    I would like to ask a question, You said that Judas was in hell. My mind had been wrestling for a long time with: Didn’t Judas ask for forgiveness right before he hung himself? If so and God forgives, why wouldn’t he do that for Judas? Am I missing something? Any input on this from you or someone you trust would be most appreciated.

      Here is some food for thought…..
      1) The Lord called him a devil…. “70 Jesus answered them, “Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?” 71 He spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. (Jn.6) – clearly an unbeliever at this point
      2) “Jesus said to him, “He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you.” For He knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, “You are not all clean.” (jn.13:10-11) – again, clearly an unbeliever, called unclean – this is the upper room ministry, just before the garden and the cross
      3) “none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.” (jn.17:12) Christ acknowledges that Judas is “lost” – again upper room ministry as the betrayal is taking place
      4) “The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It had been good for that man if he had not been born. Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said,” (Matthew 26:24-25.) notice: better if he had not been born, speaking of judgement
      5) the scripture does say he was remorseful – “Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” (Mt.27:3-4) – there is a huge difference between remorse and genuine repentance that leads to eternal life
      6) and finally – hanging himself is just a further sign that he was persisting in the ways of self – it definitely is not a sign of real repentance that leads to everlasting life…..

      I hope this helps! Great question!
