It does not matter what your particular sins and lusts are--whether they "seem" big or small in your eyesight, IT IS YOUR SINS THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO HELL. God's holy heaven is no place for whores and whoremongers, sodomites, liars, thieves, drunkards, the covetous, fornicators, the prideful, adulterers, witches, drug addicts, hypocrites, idol worshippers, murderers, covenant breakers, con artists, or any other rebels. Hell has false teachers and false prophets in it. Hell has church people in it (e.g., preachers, Sunday school teachers, deacons, and church members). Hell has hypocrites in it and all sorts of people in it like grandmothers and grandfathers, winners of cooking contests, businessmen, harlots, theologians, lawyers, doctors, college graduates, popes, and high school dropouts. Hell has "celebrities" in it--movie stars and singers of songs that had their place on the world's stage during their lifetimes. Hell has all races of people in it. Hell has atheists in it that denied God in their lifetime--these people found out after they died that they had made a very grave error in their judgment.
A lot of people think that they are good enough to get into heaven because they are not that bad.
The Bible teaches that ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God--ALL includes you and me.
God made hell for the devil and his angels (ref. Matthew 25:41). People go to hell because they choose to reject God's commandments and to live under the god of this world, the devil, also called Satan. In the devil's kingdom, you can do whatever you feel like doing, unhindered. Many, many church people and preachers do whatever they feel like doing. Going to church will not save anyone. We must REPENT of our sins and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. We must also BELIEVE that Jesus died for our sins and that he rose from the dead. And we must OBEY his holy word, the Holy Bible (Authorized King James Version of 1611).
That old serpent called the Devil and Satan is the one behind all of the evil in this world. We may see men's faces, but the devil is the one causing the trouble. Wicked men are under his influence. The Bible says that we wrestle NOT against flesh and blood but against POWERS, against PRINCIPALITIES, against the RULERS OF THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD, against SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES (ref. Ephesians 6:12). The devil is the god of this world (ref. 2 Corinthians 4:4). Under the devil, you can do whatever you want to. When a person chooses the devil to be his master, he can walk that BROAD way through life doing whatever he feels like doing.
But God Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, is holy and righteous. In his kingdom, you cannot just do what you feel like doing. Thieves have to stop stealing. Liars have to stop lying. Whores and whoremongers have to stop their whoredoms. God requires man, his creature, to live uprightly. His way is narrow and right. You cannot just do what you want to do. He requires honesty and condemns theft. He requires lovingkindness and condemns envy, pride, murder, and backbiting. He requires uprightness, not whoredom. When a person is born again by the blood of Jesus, he exchanges that old filthy life for a new one. The understanding is cleared and he begins to grow in the Lord as he reads and obeys his Bible.
God knows that we have not done right and that is why he sent his only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die for us in our place. God so loved the world that he gave us his only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. JESUS SHED HIS BLOOD TO PAY FOR OUR WICKED ACTS. But he did not remain dead. He rose from the dead on the third day with all power in heaven and in earth. If you REPENT of your evil ways (turn from your evil ways and start living according to God's word, the Bible) and BELIEVE on the Lord Jesus Christ, you will be saved. If you continue in his word, you are his disciple indeed. The Lord Jesus will save your soul and you will not step one foot in hell.
Are you willing to live right?
Do you believe that the Lord Jesus Christ shed his blood for you?
Do you believe that Jesus died, was buried, and rose again from the dead on the third day?
If your answer to these questions is "yes", then you are getting somewhere but you need to understand that believing not enough--the devils believe and tremble (ref. James 2:19). YOU HAVE TO OBEY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. HIS COMMANDMENTS ARE IN HIS WORD, THE AUTHORIZED KING JAMES BIBLE. And WHAT DOTH THE LORD REQUIRE OF THEE BUT TO DO JUSTLY AND to LOVE MERCY, and to WALK HUMBLY WITH THY GOD (ref. Micah 6:8)? You can read the Authorized King James Bible of 1611 online here. You can print out a free Authorized King James Bible here.You can read a sound overview of the Bible at this link. If you repent of your sins and then find that you do wrong, ask God to forgive you (see I John 1:9) and determine to do better. Strive to enter ye in at the strait gate for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat (ref. Matthew 7:13. As time goes on, you will grow more and more in the knowledge of the Lord, and those things that were such an effort to overcome will be overcome. As soon as possible, tear yourself away from that wicked television and let God--through his word--teach you a new life, a holy, upright life full of purpose and good fruits. Not a brainwashed t.v. life where people keep stuffing your head with blasphemy, foolishness, and lies. Read your Bible and it will wash you and cleanse you and change you as you obey it (God's commandments are not grievous). The Bible will teach you to spend your time working quietly with your own hands and teaching your children and doing good. I strongly exhort you to stay away from all modern Bibles versions--they are unauthorized versions of the holy scriptures sometimes even deleting whole verses.
Once again, God knows that you have done wrong, but he will forgive you if you REPENT of your sins and BELIEVE on his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. To those who receive him, Jesus gives the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. I was as much a child of hell as anybody else. After I repented and believed the gospel message of Jesus Christ, he gave me the power to leave the sin lifestyle and to live right. As I continued in his word, it washed my mind and my desires begin to change. I even hate television and stopped watching it over a decade ago--not because anybody told me to, God told me to--AND I'M GLAD. Now I have a real life separate from that cauldron of evil. I'm not perfect, but I take heed to God's word and try to live right. I don't do what I used to do--and I don't want to. When I sin, I ask God to forgive me in accordance with 1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
I hope that those that come to this page will repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that there is rejoicing in heaven over one sinner that repenteth (ref. Luke 15:10). For those that decide to continue in their trespasses, the Bible teaches that they will go to hell. There is no "purgatory"--that word is not even in the Bible.
God changeth not. He will not bend his law for you or me--the Bible teaches that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. God hath no pleasure in the wicked that the wicked should die (ref. Ezekiel 33:11) and he is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to REPENTANCE (2 Peter 3:9). There is no place for sin in God's kingdom. Those that follow the devil's ways, will spend eternity with the devil in the lake of fire that burneth with fire and brimstone. The devil will not be ruling in the lake of fire, he will be tormented too. He knoweth that his time is short and he is working furiously to bring as many people with him to damnation as possible--behold the abominations and desolations let loose in the earth at this time.
Turn ye, turn ye while there is time, for why will ye die?
