    Jesus got nailed to a cross. So did a lot of other people , the Romans liked that kind of thing back in the day. What makes his death was anymore or less the same as all the others ?

    Sounds like you are regurgitating what your old Nanny said to you in the Nursery. We must do our parts. So stick your legs in the air and think of England.

    The truth is that Jesus never died.

    (Romans 5:15) But the gift is not like the trespass. For if by one man’s trespass many died, how much more did the undeserved kindness of God and his free gift by the undeserved kindness of the one man, Jesus Christ, abound to many!

    The Bible says "free" and it means free, no charge. That being said, yes, we have our part in a relationship, or else there is no relationship.

    "Gift" means free, otherwise it is a purchase.

    Matt 10:8

    8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cure those with leprosy, and cast out demons. Give as freely as you have received!

    Yes, doing our part means never serving false gods.

    Doing our part means keeping faith in God. Temptation will cause you to sin and make mistakes, but when things get serious. You have to keep your faith and stand strong like all the men of the Bible. If you get the mark of the beast, you were never one of God's people to begin with. Recognize Satan and his devices and maneuver carefully.

    The Bible does say free gift. Go read Romans chapter 5. It says free gift multiple times.

    .

    And if you had to add to it, then it's not a gift. If you add even one work to salvation, then you're not saved (Romans 4:5).

    Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.

    .

    The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death
