As Chris stood up to head to bed he yawned, “Alright we had better get to bed, after all we got Church tomorrow.” “Yes sir Pa”, Jordan replied. “Good-night Randy see you at Church tomorrow.” “Good-night Jordy, see you in the morning.” Randy said as he went out the door to join his father. Randy crossed the yard in between the ranch house and the foreman’s home (About fifty yards in between). It was dark by this hour but he wasn’t walking alone, Arthur had been sitting in the rocking chair on the front porch of the ranch house to make sure his son got home safely.

“My sermon this week will be about where the soul goes when you die. When your life here on earth ends your soul goes to one of two places. The eternal peace of Heaven or the agonizing pit of fire called hell. Those who go to Heaven have accepted Jesus Christ as their savior and will spend eternity in the paradise of Heaven with Him. Those who go to hell have denied themselves the eternal safety that Jesus provides and will spend eternity in agony by the torments that’s plural of the devil’s hell. If you do not have the eternal safety that Christ provides, I urge you to please ask Jesus to forgive you for your sins and accept his forgiveness by letting him into your heart so you can avoid the torments of hell. Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me. John 14:6, Jesus is the only way to get to Heaven. Not by works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:9, before you leave church this morning I beg you consider what I’ve said to you. Let me ask you this, when you die where will your soul spend the rest of eternity? Will it go to the peaceful paradise of Heaven, or will it be the agonizing torments of the lake of fire? Thank you for coming and May God richly bless you …show more content…

    Hence, for as long as we live in this sin-cursed world, the series of mini-judgments which are visited upon us arising from the sin of Adam should be seen as previews of the final judgment awaiting mankind. Pastor Terry Johnson says, “these mini-judgments, because they fall short of eternal death in hell, are, in effect, gracious stays of execution.” He adds, “This means that every moment that each of us exists on this side of hell is a problem. How is it that a just and true God can tolerate evil and let it go on existing? How can he delay his warning that ‘the soul that sinneth, it shall die’ (Ezek. 18:4)?…

    Dr. Jekyll laments that this “doom and burthen of our life is bound forever on man 's shoulders” (78). That is not the case. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (KJV). Without God 's forgiveness and salvation for people 's sin against Himself, the result of one 's sin would be death and eternal separation from Him. This doom can be cast off fully and eternally by repenting of one 's sin and relying on God for salvation from unrighteousness and its consequences.…

    I wrote in my letter to the Corinthians that "the last enemy to be destroyed is death" (1 Corinthians 15; 26). Hatred will all be destroyed by Christ, and the righteous will be saved. Virgil, you know that the path of hatred leads to violence, wrath, and death, but you did not know how to defeat it. Jesus Christ can prevent humankind from going down this path of hatred; for he is the antidote of…

    The Roman Catholic Church convinces him that you have to go to purgatory to get to Christ or go through nine levels of heaven and hell. But that is not right because the only way to heaven is through God himself and Dante finally realizes that at the end of his journey, seeing the bad and the good. The view of heaven and hell was branded in Dante’s mind because of the many Catholic Church’s. You see the view of Dante and the Biblical views differ but are similar in many ways, but you have to understand that the nine levels of heaven and hell and purgatory do not exist. It is a figure of your imagination, and you have fallen into their trap.…

    In Simon’s journal she discussed how rules cannot change because people want to refrain from the truth. In “The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas” no matter how angry they get about the child they still understand why it exist. The child strongly represents Christ, but what if its God that walked and not the non-believers as mentioned earlier. God knew that his son was going to die when he sent him to. The ones that walked away could be God’s wrath on sinful humanity “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them”(Romans 1 18-19).…

    This discussed the definitions of heaven and hell, which is the Christian version of a justice system in the afterlife. God looks at you and all of your sins, or crimes, and places you in heaven or hell based on these sins. A definition of what these places are are important when discussing God’s justice and would be lacking without. This article discusses the definition of heaven more so than the definition of hell, but to its bare bones, heaven is where you are closest to God, but hell is where you are furthest from God, with hell having various levels. Heaven is where you feel welcomed and at home, whereas hell is uninviting and cloaked in…

    Heaven is described in the Qur’an “as a place of gardens and rivers, where all the desires of a person will be satisfied. According to Mohammed, however, hell is a place where there are things that no eye has seen, no ear had heard, and no mind has conceived” (Khan 2003). Christians, like Muslims also believe that we will be held accountable for our actions, resulting in either eternal life with God, or eternal damnation in Hell (“But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead, 1 Peter 4:5”). However, unlike like Muslims Christians based on Biblical scriptures that it is necessary to not only accept God, but Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior in order to be able to go to Heaven. Once again, numerous times the New Testament references how salvation and the privilege of going to Heaven can only be found in Christ, yet the Islamic faith ignores these verses due to the belief of exploitation in the scriptures.…

    What counts is where I am going” (Jantz, 1998, p. 18). The sins of my past are forgiven, but that doesn’t mean I can continue to sin in my path forward with God. I am called to confess my sin and He will be faithful and just to forgive me. I know Christ died to atone for my sins, but it is hard to fathom why God would sacrifice His only Son in such a horrific way to atone for the sins of the world. This sacrifice is confirmed in Colossians 1:20-21, “and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.…
