    “Sin lies only in hurting other people unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense. (Hurting yourself is not sinful - just stupid).”

    Robert A. Heinlein (American science-fiction Writer, 1907-1988)

    Heaven doesn't exist.

    Jesus Christ COMMANDED all TRUE Christians to Love One Another. Those who FAIL to do as He Commanded, indeed commit sin.

    The truth is that death leads to heaven or hell, and the only way to heaven is through faith in Jesus Christ.

    The Bible is very clear that no one can earn their way to heaven since good works do not pay for sins. See Gal. 2:16, Rom. 3:23-28, 4:4-5, Eph. 2:8-9, Tit. 3:5. The only way to heaven is by believing in Jesus for His free gift of eternal life. Jesus shed His blood on the cross as the full payment for our sins. He did all the work; all He requires of us is that we believe in Him. Once you believe in Jesus Christ to save you, you are secure forever!

    Because we have all sinned against a perfectly holy and righteous God, we all deserve eternal separation from God in hell (Rom. 6:23). However, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross as our Substitute so we don't have to go to hell. Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave three days later (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He gives eternal life freely to anyone who simply believes in Him for it. No one can be saved by doing good works. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9).

    "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life" (John 6:47).

    crossing against the light is a sin.  Smoking the weed and eating chips afterward is a sin.  To some people simply asking what is a sin qualifies as, SIN!  Get this, the mandate is to breed and multiply, but that is a sin too!  Asking this question was a sin, answering it was a sin.  Life is a sin, so what, is sin unless God says what sin is.  So far only men seeking power have said!

    About half the politicians and most of the televangelists will not be making it to heaven, it seems.

    We are all sinners.  You can easily get into heaven by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ.  That is the only way, and it is that easy.  Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell.  So to avoid hell, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is that easy.  When a person dies, they will be in heaven or hell, and they can't get out of hell if that is where they go.  To go to heaven and not go to hell, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, without adding any of your works.  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God and who died on the cross and shed His blood to pay for all our sins, and who resurrected from the dead.  See Romans 4:5 and 1 Corinthians 15:3-4.  P.S.  "Purgatory" doesn't exist.  Catholicism has many lies.
