How To Get To Heaven When You Die

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 die so that you can have a chance not to have to go to hell by accepting what He did on the cross for you:

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 demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 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 you will confess to Jesus Christ that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior, accept Him as Lord and Savior and believe in your heart that He died on the cross and rose from the dead you will be saved.

Joh 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name”

Ro 10:9,10 "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.."

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?

ARE YOU WILLING TO TURN TO JESUS CHRIST FOR SALVATION?

4. If you are willing to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior please humble yourself before God and pray this prayer to Him from your heart:

"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, save me, take me to be with You 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 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.

Dang! And I'm all outta popcorn!!!

I could dive into all sorts of places where my particular faith disagrees, but I realize that Christ taught that a spirit of contention is not of Him, so I'll keep my mouth shut on this one for now. I enjoy missionary work, having done a few years of it myself, but on internet forums like this, such discussions never end well, sadly.

I appreciate your efforts in sharing the Gospel, though.

I refuse to accept any conclusion on spiritual matters from anyone who does not have the brains to grasp basic biology, geology, and paleontology.

Add to that the basic inability to answer some pretty serious philosophical questions of why a carpenter would blame his tools...

I would sooner allow my local bartender to perform open heart surgery on me. The stakes are lower.

That's just the way I roll.

It always cracks me up how the mere mention of such a positive subject elicits the same response from some people as dumping a BBQ full of lit charcoal down the front of their pants.

I reported it (0 posts and opening a thread in LTU&P) before I realised it had been originally posted elsewhere.

But lrsudog, you just have to pray the prayer once and mean it, really mean it, and you have a get into heaven free card! Hedge your bets man!

That's an odd perspective; the threat of everlasting torment from an angry creator as a "positive subject".

Ever when I used to be a Born again Christian the threatening of dire consequences in the afterlife for not agreeing with the Missionary's religious tenets had always struck me as a negative way to sell the ideology.

Some of us roll,
With a Pre-Paid Toll.

Perhaps because it is we see,
Not just life but eternity!

And knowing the Gift that was given in Death,
Being called of the Spirit in His place He left.

"His Word shall not return to Him void."

Pascal's gambit?

No, I'm afraid that if one asks for forgiveness on the speculation that God exists, God will know, and reject that request.

The notion that rejection of the notion of "Christian" salvation is based on ignorance is erroneous. I was an earnest and faithful Born again Christian for some time before recognizing the flaws inherent in the tenets and ultimately rejecting them.
