Is suicide an unforgivable sin?

If so, where does the Bible state this to be so?
No.
Biblically there is only ONE unforgivable sin and that is to blasphemy the Holy Spirit.

Which is the cause of much scrupulosity. Doesn't this 1 sin boil down to rejecting Christ?

Sure, and denying God when you know He exists, and denying the truth when you know what it is and so forth BUT it is a CONSCIOUS denial, a purposeful denial.

Just to clarify this was meant partly as a rhetorical because I know there's nowhere it states it's an unforgivable sin
