First things first. This is not about converting to a new religion. This is not about religion at all. It is about life, real life!
Second thing. Many people do believe that this life here is all there is. If this is you, please consider that if that is true, then really what we do in this life actually does not matter as the end result to whatever we do is the same, nothingness. Some may say well what we do will live on after we are gone, in people, or in memories. But ultimately that too is meaningless since ultimately everything on this earth either dies or is destroyed in one way or another.
God planted within you the desire to live a meaningful, purposeful life, for a purpose much greater than yourself, and He alone can satisfy that desire. You were made by God, you were made for God, and you were put here for a purpose, His purpose. Life isn’t going to make a whole lot of sense without an understanding of that concept.
There is an eternal destiny. Eternal means lasting forever. No end. We are made from dust (Genesis 2:7), and to dust we will return to an eternal destiny (Genesis 3:19.) Those who sleep in the dust of the earth will awaken, some for eternal life [heaven], and some for disgrace, for eternal abhorrence [hell] (Daniel 12:2.) Isaiah 66:24 also talks about hell “And they shall go out and see the corpses of the people who rebelled against Me, for their worm shall not die, and their fire shall not be quenched, and they shall be an abhorring for all flesh.”
Heaven and Hell are real. Some may ask, what if they are not? My response, what if they are?
The document that states they are, the Bible, is true and using the same tests as any other historical document, can be proven as true. How much we have to lose by denying truth. The reality and intensity of that denial is immense. After reading about the truth of the Bible, if you have questions or points to discuss, please always feel free to ask!
You do not earn your way into Heaven through your charitable works or by behaving well or by adhering to certain religious principles.
Your ethnicity or religious background does not grant you entrance, not even for us Jewish people, despite what some might believe.
This is for ALL people, regardless of ethnicity, culture, religious background, or anything else.
SO, what does that all mean for you? For me? For anyone? So glad you asked!
