Look at it this way, it was written
by our forefathers not to keep
religion out of government, but to
keep government out of religion.
How can I go to Heaven?
It's not by saying a prayer, It's not by going to church, helping the
poor, or being a good person. The only way to get to Heaven is by
putting your trust in Jesus Christ. Why? Because He paid your
entrance fee. Mohammed didn't. Buddah didn't, mother earth didn't.
Only Jesus, and the price was His life. Why so high a price?
Because we are permanently separated from God by our
wickedness. All it takes is one little lie, one selfish motive, and we
can no longer approach a Holy God. Jesus took on Himself all our
wickedness and paid the penalty we would have been forced to
pay on Judgement day.
So what does it mean to trust in Jesus? Again, it doesn't mean
saying a prayer, going to church, etc. It means you open your heart
to Him, realize you are wicked, in desperate need of His help,
humble yourself and repent, asking Him to save and forgive you,
and then make Him Lord of your life: Learn about Him, spend time
in His Word, talk with Him, get to know other Christians, and obey
Him. In other words, Seek Him with all your heart.
My biggest fear is that there will be many people on the day of
Judgement who thought they were going to Heaven because they
said a prayer, attended church, etc, but in reality they never knew
God. Don't be one of those people that Jesus talks about in
Matthew 7 where he says "Depart from me, I never knew you."
If you really want to know what heaven is like, I highly
recommend Randy Alcorn's book called, Heaven. It will make you
want to go there right now
Many people have trouble with a concept of Hell. Such a
horrible place of torment for all eternity. Why would a loving
God send anyone there? The truth of the matter is, God didn't
create Hell for mankind. It was created for Satan and his
angels. God doesn't want any human to go there. He longs
for us to turn to Him and receive His free gift of salvation
through his Son, Jesus. When someone refuses that gift, in
essence, he is sending himself to Hell. He is rejecting God
and therefore dooming himself to a place without God for all
