Acts 16:31. John 6:40. John 6:47. John 5:24. The important question we must answer is, “Where are you going whenever you die?” John 3:18 is the only answer that counts. Believers have eternal life in heaven forever.

Since Jesus died for the sins of the whole world, why should we go to hell to pay for our sins when Jesus already paid for them all. Colossians 2:13 He has forgiven us all trespasses. Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him who justifieth the UNGODLY, his faith is counted for righteousness.
