I think that even if you are not christian,you will make it in heaven! How do we know if what the bible says is true? We don't really have a reliable source for that. And just because you are not a follower does not? mean you are not his children.If God truly created us equally, in some way, why would there need to be a reason for going to hell or to heaven? In god's eyes we are his children,and nothing can change that.You shouldn't always trust something you read. I mean how do we know that they are hiding the truth from us with this bible?? How do we know it's not all made up?

juxtaposition - I love long words! but what I mean to say is: The Bible states that It is thoroughly and completely true. thereore the Bible is either completely true or completely false. Science, believe it or not, has proved many aspects of the Bible - all aspects that do not have to do with faith. I think it's pretty safe to have faith in the rest of the Bible that can't be scientifically proven.

technically, we always had the choice between good and evil. Adam and Eve - choose to obey (good) or disobey and eat the fruit(evil).

this is a very interesting idea. however, if the Bible is not reliable may not be true, are you choosing and picking what to believe: in God, heaven, hell, and all humans being created equally? If the Bible is all made up, why be concerned about heaven at all? If anyone can go to heaven, why did Jesus come to earth in the first place? and why is there any such thing as a Christian if anyone can go to heaven anyways? God did create us equally - we all have the free will to choose heaven or hell. I believe the KJV, and according to it, there is heaven and hell. heaven was the home of God and his angels, and when Satan rebelled with one third of the angels, God made hell for them. when Adam and Eve broke His one rule, they could no longer go to heaven because they were not perfect. therefore, God sent part of the Trinity, Jesus, to earth to die for our sins so that we, all sinners and no longer able to go to heaven on our own, could have a chance to repent to Him and thus have our sins taken away so we can go to heaven when we die. We, all created equally, can choose whether to go to heaven or not.

Correct, but the Lord knew that we would fall.  He purposefully made it that way.  If man had not fallen into sin, we would not have the choice of evil or good.  We would be walking around like robots saying "I love God.  I love God.  I love God."  We would not have known of anything else to worship.  However, God purposefully gave all of us a choice.  That's the beautiful thing, though.  Those who have chosen His path can help others, who have not chosen His path, onto it.  We can show others His love.  A Christian's missionary world begins when we step out of our front door.  We did not "blow it".  We simply gave ourselves a challenge.

Faith is what gives you certainty that the Bible is true. You say it can't be proven, well how about you do your research and prove that its false. Dont rely on Google or Wikipedia for your answers either. A good thing for you to do is to try to prove the Bible is true and then try to prove that it is false, it will open your eyes to a lot of different opinions and most importantly, facts. And you will find in your research that just because you cannot put an exact date on a certain event does not mean it did not occur. And yes everyone is a child of God even if they don't believe in Him. Just to clarify something, "christian" means follower of Chritst, it's not a religion. God tells us that the only certainty you have of going to Heaven is by following His word and Jesus, I do not know what happens to everyone else. Yes God created us all equally and well some people do go to heavn and others go to hell. I'm not goig to sugar coat it but we all deserve hell because face it, we have all sinned but God sent down Jesus to clear us of our sin and now we're saved but that doesn't mean we're all going to heaven. We need to genuinly love and live for God. Why should God allow those who spent their lives worrying about earthly possesions to eneter heaven? Why shuld he spend eternity with those who don't love him? Some may say its unfair but if He were to be fair, we would ALL burn in hell but he loves us so much that he gives us opportunities to turn to him and have a chance at heaven. And to who ever is reading this, take this as a sign that God is trying to connect with you and is searching for your love and just remember that he loves you!

wo sounds like all of you are listening ot your pastors.I do NOT beleive that anyone goes to heaven when they die.i mean can anyone show me evidence of this. or is this your pastor saying this with no citing of scripture. i do belive the Bible from front to back. and i do belive that only those who guard and keep his commands and accpet Yashua/J-sus as messiah they will be saved. when we die we stay there until the new jerusalem is built then we go there:)

God did create us equally, and he doesn't want us to go to hell. God made humans perfect, but we blew it.

I may not always agree with someone else's beliefs but it isn't my job to judge them. I belief that God has a plan for each of us and loves us all the same no matter what. I do not necessarily condone everyone's behavior but i most certainly do not take it upon myself to tell them their opinion is wrong. Because that is not my job. Jesus Christ feasted among sinners and publicans without judgement on them. He healed those who had no love for him or what he taught. I want to be like Jesus and accept and care for people for who they are because I'd like them to do the same favor for me.

We may or may not share DNA with apes, I have never heard that before, but here's a thought: if we do, maybe it is because the same Person created both humans and apes. But we were never apes.

We Christians don't look down on non-believers, we aren't any more special than them.  We want everyone to go to Heaven and live forever with God and Jesus, but it won't be that way because the rapture (the second coming of Christ) is coming closer everyday; only the saved will go to heaven, but not everyone will be saved in time.  All in all, we want to get people to believe on Jesus and get saved.

As a nascent scientist, I am somewhat troubled by your juxtaposition of "Science" and "Bible."  Assuming that you are correct in stating that some historian has proven that the literary content of the Bible has not changed, that does not merit a status of "ABSOLUTELY CORRECT" for the entire work.  Too, science dictates that few things are absolutely true, if any.  We call these things laws and usually can depict them in nice little formulae.  They are predictable, inerring, and subject to revision the moment some concrete evidence with enough empirical and logical support rises up.  Mind you, these are simply the laws.  Everything else is a theory, and theories are subject to an even more rigorous process of revision and disputation.  Your claim of the unerring content of the Bible is a theory.  Support it.

 In the beginning of the world there was no sin or death.  After sin entered the world with Adam and Eve (and Satan's fall from heaven), God punished the world by creating death.  However, Jesus died for the sins of the world.  Romans 6:23 says:  For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Anyone who doesn't accept the gift of salvation will go to hell for all eternity.  Plus the Bible is 100% TRUE; God told certain men what to write.

People mix up the religion aspect of being a christian with the personal relationship part. There are many religious people in this world. many "christians" but they dont have a personal relationship with God. The moment you accept Jesus Christ as your lord and savior and do all you can to live for him, you will go to heaven. But you must have that relationship with him. Yes he made us all, and loves us all. But if we dont follow his commands and live for him then we will not go to heaven.

I'm seeing a lot of controversial posts here, including the article. This is the way I think it is: People have many different beliefs. Nobody knows the way post-death works, soulwise, which includes debating the existance of the soul. And since nobody has any evidence, nobody's religious (or non-religious) belief is any better or worse then another's, any righter or wronger, any more superior or inferior. We're all at the same place, trying to figure out the same thing. Unless something truly unexpected occurs, we'll never find out in this state of being. So there's no use attacking different beliefs. All it does is divide us and make us unhappy. It would be nice if as a community, society, species, whatever you want to call it, we could just toss out our best guesses, believe whatever hits home, and not be any the worse for it.

Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die. How is that?

Evolution is actually has a lot of proof to back up.  Like that humans share about 97 percent of DNA with orangutans.  It wasn't boom a monkey just turned into a human, it was cell by cell.  Which probably took hundreds of thousands of years, if not millions.  How do you know if Evolution is real? How do you know if the bible is real?  You don't.  In somebody's eyes we are all going to hell.

what bible are you reading that people keep re-writing according to you..  the bible intended for us to read is out there.  it is still the same as the day it was written.  do more homework before you make such claims.  yes, there are so called bibles out there that people have changed.. the KJV is the one to read.. it has not changed.  anyone can write a book and call it a bible.. but God's word has stood the test of time.. HIS word has not changed.  he said you will be decieved by many.  yet he has people trying to help you and tell you the correct info... which makes the most sense more then any other information out there.  there is no way to explain all of God's word in just one post.. do the research .. dont give up.. do not fall into this world.  those who seek him dliggently (continulally) will be rewarded by him.  dont you think that is worth it.
