No Need to Believe. We're All Going to Heaven!
Quote:We all sin. Not one person can say they have never sinned. God is a holy
God and cannot stand sin. He is also a just and merciful God. His holy
nature demands that we pay for our sins. The payment is death. There is
nothing we can do to pay any less than with our lives.

But remember I said God was not only holy and just, but that He is
merciful too. He loves us and He does not want us to have to die. He
can't change the fact that we are sinful and deserve to die for our
actions, but He can and did make a way for us to pay for our actions
without our own death. That price is the price of Jesus' blood. See God
sent His Son; Jesus Christ, to earth as a human to live a sinless life,
and to die for our sins. So now all we have to do is believe in Jesus
and ask Him to forgive us and be Lord of our lives. At that point our
sins are forgiven and we are reconciled with God. He (Jesus) becomes
Lord of our life and we start living the way He wants us to live.

So.....we don't necessarily have to accept Jesus. We can pay for sins with death and go to heaven? This logic doesn't make sense to me.

If an atheist commits suicide to pay for his sins, just in case, does he go to heaven?

I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but there's no such thing as a god, or sin, or heaven and hell.

RE: No Need to Believe. We're All Going to Heaven!
I believe Heaven was created because of man's natural fear of death. A promise of an eternal afterlife with loved ones is a very happy story for those close to death. I believe that is all it is. A lot of theists I know remain believers because they fear death or the opposite of heaven, Hell. They go to church and do good things not because of willingness or charity but because they feel they need to firmly assure they will exist in some form of afterlife.

It is sad to see people worship death in this strange way to believe they will live again in some other place. Especially when they have a life to live right now.

It has been a long time. How have you been?
