  3. How To Get To Heaven When You Die

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:"

It 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:

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. Lying, stealing, sex before marriage, pride, hatred, ect. are all sins. Hell is a prison for those who commit crimes against God. That’s because you must be perfect in order to get to heaven. No matter how well you live your life from then on, you have already sinned, 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. You won’t have to pay for your own sins because Jesus already did that for you. But if you reject the pardon that He offers, you will have to pay for your own sins by going to hell.

3. If you will confess Jesus Christ is the Lord, place your Faith in Him and Believe in your heart that He died and rose again for your sins, you will be saved (from hell).

Eph 2:8,9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

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, believing in your heart that He died on the cross and rose from the dead for your sins and placing your Faith in Him. While these are good things to do, some people believe that they will get to heaven, but the bible says that there is only one way to heaven and that is through trusting in what Jesus Christ did on the cross for you in faith.

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

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

4. If you want to accept Jesus free gift of salvation, or if you have any doubts about whether or not you are going to heaven, you could place your faith in Jesus Christ for salvation by praying a simple prayer:

”Dear Lord Jesus I believe that You are the Lord and believe in my heart that You died on the Cross and Rose from the dead for my sins. I repent and turn to You, placing my Faith in You as Lord of my life, Please save me and I thank You for it, in Jesus holy name, Amen.”

If you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ and meant it with all of your heart, you are now a child of God and will go to heaven. Now that you are on your way to heaven, you should attend a bible believing church and follow in baptism.

Okay but how do you get faith if you find the idea of Jesus' divinity unbelievable?

Like, I see the whole argument here, and I could argue some things, but regardless, how do you get to belief from unbelief? If you find the whole thing implausible, I mean, what do you do?

I feel like Christians are often reliant on the idea that the people they're "helping" just don't know the story or something and will instantly believe it, no matter how implausible, but I mean, I know all that, it doesn't help me believe. So how I can be saved? By what process do I gain belief?

I mean, if I don't believe in ghosts, I can go do some ghost tours or something, but if nothing happens and I still don't believe in ghosts, how do I get saved from being torn to bits by ghosts when I die? If I test the ideas and no proof is forthcoming, what then?

I mean, I can't pray the "simple prayer" if it's just a lie. So it's not really simple.

Frankly the whole project is implausible. It would make way more sense if they said, "Just do good works, live by the rules laid out in this book, and when you die Jesus will judge whether you did enough. No belief required. Just action. If you fall down, get up. Work hard, try your best."

idk I just find the whole thing frustrating because it hangs on a critical absurdity: You can live by the book better than a Christian, but lacking the critical component, you're tortured in fire forever, gg!

Ah this thread again.

Anyways I can't go to Heaven. Not that I'd want to go their anyways. It's probably be the most boring place ever, where individuality can finally be purged, and everyone is the same. Hell is terrible, but maybe I could convince some poor souls (like me) to wage war against God.
