    ARE YOU 100% SURE THAT IF YOU DIED TODAY THAT YOU WOULD GO TO HEAVEN?

    THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:

    1. REALIZE THAT YOU ARE A SINNER AND IN NEED OF A SAVIOR:

    Ro 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"

    Ro 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"

    This all began with the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. God created them perfect, there was no death or sorrow. God told them not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They disobeyed God and as a result, sin entered into the world. The pain which this world sees is the result of sin.

    2. BECAUSE OF OUR SINS, WE DIE BOTH SPIRITUALLY AND PHYSICALLY, BUT GOD SENT HIS SON TO TAKE OUR PUNISHMENT AND GIVE US A CHANCE NOT TO HAVE TO GO TO HELL.

    Ro 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

    Ro 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

    Every person who has ever lived is a sinner and is not righteous because we do bad things. A sin is a crime against God, just as if you steal something at the store, it is punishable by going to jail. It's the same thing with sin. Even if we lie one time, the punishment is hell, which is a prison for those who commit crimes against God. No matter how well you live your life from then on, you have already committed a sin which will be punished if you are not pardoned. If you commit a crime, and then live as a good citizen you still will go to jail for the crime you committed. Right? Just as the president can pardon a crime so you won't go to jail, Jesus can pardon your sins so that you do not go to hell, and can go to heaven when you die.

    3. IF WE WILL ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS OUR LORD WITH OUR MOUTHS AND BELIEVE IN OUR HEARTS THAT HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD, BY DOING THIS WE ARE RECEIVING HIM:

    Ro 10:9,10 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."

    Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: {power: or, the right, or, privilege}
    (KJV)

    You cannot get to heaven by being a good person, going to church, baptism or any other way other than by turning to Jesus and asking Him to forgive you for your sins and save you. While these are good things to do, some people believe that they will get to heaven if they do these things, but the bible says that there is only one way to heaven and that is through receiving what Jesus Christ did on the cross for you.

    Will you do that today? If you will, you can be 100% sure that you will go to heaven when you die.

    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS AND ROSE FROM THE DEAD FOR YOUR SINS? DO YOU ACCEPT WHAT HE DID FOR YOU TO PAY FOR YOUR SINS?

    4. If you are willing to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior please pray this right now, from your heart to God,

    "Dear LORD JESUS, I believe that YOU died on the Cross and Rose from the dead for my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and forgive me for my sins, take me to heaven when I die. I now receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus holy name, Amen."

    If you prayed that prayer from your heart to God, and meant it with all of your heart, you are now a child of God and will go to heaven when you die.

    Now that you are on your way to heaven, you should attend a bible believing church and follow in baptism.

    And this has what to do with "legal/political"? Perhaps its more in the more general "social situations". Isn't there a different forum that would better suit your agenda? Im not here to question anyones belief's or ideas, or condone them, just wondering what is being brought to the table with this post...

    You really don't want to get me started on religion. Also, what does this have to do with legal issues?

    How?

    First I want to go on cosmic vacation, then I'll get my papers in order so I can go through the gates. I bet the only Politician there will be JFK and Ron Paul.

    There is much legality involved in salvation. We being sinners have committed crimes against God and are worthy of prison (hell) an eternal sentence, since sin is against God's eternal holiness. Jesus Christ came, lived a perfect life and died in our place, taking our punishment on Himself, that whoever will accept Him and what He did to pay for their crimes (sins) will be pardoned from prison (hell).

    That's how it's legal.

    By rendering unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto THR the things which are gun-related.

    And by protecting the Bill of Rights for our posterity.

    Did Jesus and the apostles stop sharing the gospel because caesar said to? Besides, I think decons aught to carry hand guns in this day and age. I am all for guns. They lower crime.

    There is no religion section to post this. Politics is the closest area. This is a relevent topic.

    Well, there'll be a couple of resurrections involving all human beings. But the Bible says nobody* has ever gone to heaven except Christ (who presently sits--actually Stephen saw him standing--on the right hand of God).


    But then again, what does this have to do with legal and political?


    *how all those beheaded guys got into John's revelation is another issue.

    Actually, the bible says that we go to heaven to be with Christ after we die, if we are His children.

    I chose "There is no God/Heaven"

    How people can preach like this is beyond me.

    Take a godless person like me. IF somthing were to happen to me tomorrow to make me believe in a higher power, I would be JUST as likely to become a follower of Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, the Greek or Roman pantheon, or any number of religions with histories as rich or richer than that of Christianity, with just as much or more legitimacy.

    Get a life. This is the High Road. Trying to scare people into becoming Christian via threat of eternal pain and violence is NOT taking the high road.

    If God wants to work directly with you, he'll let you know. Other than that, just be good.
