I challenge the popular one that says you go to Abrahams bosom.. without an exit plan.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Philippian

Hello Stan,

Reference to the parable Jesus made in Lk.16:19-31, before He shed His blood and died on the cross; about Lazarus going to the bosom of Abraham in hell, and the rich man going to hell, with a wide chasm between them, is a perfect profile of OT Sheol.

Because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins, as recorded in Heb.10:4, confirming Rom.3:25-26.  During OT times, no one went to heaven, except Enoch and Elijah.

Following Jesus shed blood and death on the cross, after the advent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, recorded in Acts 2:1-3, that all changed, as recorded in 2 Cor.5:8, and everyone who ever believed in Jesus from that time to the present day, go to be with Jesus in heaven.  Which is confirmed in 1 Thess.4:14, when all the "sleepers" those who previously died in Christ, are seen [prophetically] returning with Him from heaven, when He comes to rapture His Church, in verse 16.  From where He will take all believers with Him to heaven, as recorded in verse 17 and in Jn.14:2-3, 28.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
