“This is about as plain as I’ve ever heard the gospel explained! Let’s be clear. If you end up in a burning hell for all eternity, it won’t be because you have a tattoo, or because you have a nose ring, or because you drink beer or smoke cigarettes, or because you cuss, or because you spent time in prison. It won’t be because you didn’t do enough good deeds. It won’t be because you didn’t belong to the right church. It won’t be because of that dumb thing you did that you don’t want anybody to know about. It won’t be because of what anyone else did to you. It will be because you refused to receive Jesus Christ (God the Son) as your personal Savior. He already paid for all the stupid stuff you have done and all the stupid stuff you are going to do when He died FOR YOU on the cross and rose again. He offers salvation as a free gift because, let’s face it, if it was up to us to earn it, we would have no chance (We both know that don’t we?).
The gift of salvation is there for you to receive. The decision is totally up to you. The price for your sins has been paid, the way to heaven for you has been made. If you end up in a burning hell for all eternity, you have no one to blame but yourself.”
