I think that even if you are not christian,you will make it in heaven! How do we know if what the bible says is true? We don't really have a reliable source for that. And just because you are not a follower does not? mean you are not his children.If God truly created us equally, in some way, why would there need to be a reason for going to hell or to heaven? In god's eyes we are his children,and nothing can change that.You shouldn't always trust something you read. I mean how do we know that they are hiding the truth from us with this bible?? How do we know it's not all made up?

I was answering a question on Youtube about this particular topic. It kind of raged me into writing this.

How can we be good to others all the time? We've all messed up, and we'll all mess up again. Moreover, Jesus himself said it's easy to love those who love you, and to do good to those who'll repay you. Why would God be pleased with that? He wants more--He wants to follow Him truly by obeying His word.

Honestly? No solid proof? You know that many of the prophecies in the Bible have been fulfilled? You know that there is evidence of the walls of Jericho falling down? You know there are no contradictions in the Bible, when you actually analyze them, despite what ignorant people would like to say? Google it sometime. "Your Word is truth." "Every word of God is tested." "All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction..."

Spot on. Who God is, is exactly the point. A.W. Tozer once said, "What we believe about God is the most important thing about us." If we believe in a good God (as all those do who would dare believe in heaven), then we believe in a standard for entering heaven, where God dwells. This standard, of course, is unattainable. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, and no one comes to the Father (or sees the pearly gates) except through Him.

The film Gladiator, directed by Ridley Scott, starring Russell Crowe, has an excellent quote: "What we do in life echoes in eternity." Obviously you believe in heaven, so there's no need for me to tell you that without an afterlife there is no meaning of life.

Moving on, then. You say everyone goes to heaven because God regards us equally. Cool. Can't wait to see Ted Bundy in heaven. You see, if there is a God (as there must be, when we assume there is a heaven), He is a just God or He wouldn't be God at all. Nobody wants to believe in, let alone worship, an evil or partially unfair God. That being said, if God is just then God is JUDGE. We WILL stand before His throne at the end of our lives here. And we will spend eternity either burning in a pit of fire, filled with the gnashing of teeth, or we will enter the pearly gates and walk the gold road.

"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction and there are many that enter through it." (Matthew 7:13)

Petrichor1994: Yes, because in Genesis 1:1 it states that God created the heavens and the earth. 

FroBro: The Bible has hate . . . God only hates the sin, but loves the sinner. He doesn't like the wrong doing, but He still loves us.

Okay, there might be a figure who might or might not have created the world. I just don't know. But how can you know that this figure is the Christian God?

Have you saved all the women alive? Kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

Point is, you get the choice to believe it or not. Are you openminded, or do you just throw it away in blindness. I would suggest exploring the teachings of God before you make such a big decision, because if you really cared, you would want to know instead of just hoping you can do whatever you want and still end up in heaven because there wasn't any hard evidence supporting the Bible.

Oh, nono, I wasn't referring to the comment above mine, I was commenting on the original comment by yoitsme. But yes, I agree with you.

I understand what your saying, but the difference is teachers have licensed authority, not to mention teachers (for the most part) are older than their students, and we should repsect our elders. But saying men have authority over women in general is still saying women need to be told what to do, because apparently we're inferior...

They didn't die for a lie, they died for a belief; there's a difference. Whether or not I believe it's a lie (or anyone for that matter) doesn't effect whether or not they did.

Personally I find that people who follow the country's -reasonable- laws and make an effort to be successful are successful, but whatever you say. And men have no right to have authority over women whatsoever.

Yeah... but if one person says there is no heaven... and no God... And another said there was... than how would there be both no heaven, and heaven?

Well... just because it's okay for someone to tell another what to do doesn't mean they are better... A teacher has authority over students... but that doesn't mean that she is better than them...

I personally don't see how those two are any different.

Try actually looking at the evidence for the bible and christianity though. Countless numbers of prophecies from the Old Testament are fufilled in the New Testament. It has been proven that the Old testament was indeed written long before the New Testament. So how would someone have known exactly what would happen? All of the Historical events and cultures match up with what we know of History today. Also, there are many scientific laws that are stated in the bible long before they were discovered. Check out Isaiah 40:22, it says that the earth is round, at this time people thought that the earth was flat. There are many more examples of this in the bible. How else would you explain all of this than having been inspired by God?
