Take this simple test to find out:
Would you sell one of your eyes for a million dollars? How about both eyes for ten million? No one in their right mind would! Your eyes are precious to you... but they are only a "window" for your soul. Your soul (your inner being, your life, your personality) looks out through those eyes. Consider how precious your eyes are... then realize that Jesus said that Hell is so horrible that you would be better off tearing out your own eyes than ending up there for all eternity (Mark 9:43-48).
Perhaps you feel safe because you don't believe in Hell. This can be likened to standing in the middle of a busy highway and shouting, "I don't believe in trucks!" Your belief or disbelief in trucks will not change reality. The same applies in this situation. Your disbelief in Hell will not cause it to cease to exist. God has given us HIS WORD on the existence and purpose of Hell...
do you think I can count my buddhism classes and tick yes?
But isn't God's house the whole world anyway?
Owr done found a loophole.
does this concern you
If he doesn't want it to happen he's really fucking up big time.
Way to be omnipotent 'God'.
Like saying: "I've got a very expensive and shiny gun my wardrobe. It would be perfect for you to play with when you're pretending to be a soldier, Timmy - but don't get it."
Ignore me. I fucked that point up.
and saying 'I really don't want you to eat those' and then leaving him to it, coming back in 10 minutes, surveying the carnage and going 'NOOOOOOOOO! Evil cat, what have you done! I shall make you sleep outside now!'
Which also gives me a great opportunity to post a lolcat only slightly related to your post:
the one that started it all. He's cute.
I read a great article about them somewhere. Basically, they're effortlessly funny. I like loldogs, too.
who gets to go to heaven?!
but that's a moot point really cos i'm immortal
everyone is going to Hell. There can honestly be no exceptions to that apart from Jesus Christ himself. And I bet even he swore a little.
"What's more likely: That the entire natural order was suspended, or that one Jewish minx told a lie?"
Saying that, Jesus seems pretty cool. It's his disciples and advocates fucking up the message that ruins it for me.
God is basically just a giant, ethereal Shania Twain.
'The Seventh of the Ten Commandments is "You shall not commit adultery." If you've ever looked at another person with lustful thoughts, according to God's standards, that makes you an "adulterer." Jesus said, "You have heard it said, You shall not commit adultery: But I say to you, that whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart." (Matthew 5:28) In 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, God says that no adulterers "...shall inherit the kingdom of God."'
Does it still count as adultery if you're not dating anyone at the time?
I need to know for a friend.
Allow Mr Carlin to illuminate us all:
The? ten commandments where released after great miraculous events, thats why people believed they where God's. Listen up, the guys where JEWS: they wherent easy to be fooled. If they believed, thats because they saw supernatural stuff.
"i feel good living my life without definng it by witch invisilbe man in the sky a pray to.. i do respect your right to believe what ever you want. but i dont agree you should try and live your your life by religios guidelines since anyone can say they have a differnt god with differnt morals , just look how that causes? holy wars between people. . ."
tough brief that.
It should concern you.
It has already been established that you would be guilty of breaking His commandments (how?). Even if you were able to perfectly keep 9 of the commandments for your entire life -- you have broken the first commandment (Question #8). The First of the Ten Commandments is "You shall have no other gods before me." That means that we should love God with all of our heart, mind, soul and strength. The Bible tells us that no one has kept this commandment (see Psalm 14:2-3).
Basically, unless you join Kirk Cameron's church and give it a lot of money you. Are. Fucked.
Please don't be discouraged. We urge you to be patient and to continue on. Our straightforwardness is motivated by a genuine concern for your soul.
Knowing that you are guilty of breaking God's commandments, do you think you would go to Heaven or Hell?
