    ARE YOU 100% SURE THAT IF YOU DIED TODAY THAT YOU WOULD GO TO HEAVEN?

    There are some things that you should know:

    1. Realize that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior:

    Ro 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"

    Ro 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"

    This all began with the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. God created them perfect, there was no death or sorrow. God told them not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They disobeyed God and as a result, sin entered into the world. The pain which this world sees is the result of sin.

    2. Because of our sins, we die both spiritually and physically, but God sent His Son to die so that you can have a chance not to have to go to hell by accepting what He did on the cross for you:

    Ro 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

    Ro 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. for us."

    Every person who has ever lived is a sinner and is not righteous because we do bad things. A sin is a crime against God, just as if you steal something at the store, it is punishable by going to jail. It's the same thing with sin. Even if we lie one time, the punishment is hell, which is a prison for those who commit crimes against God. That’s because you must be perfect in order to get to heaven. No matter how well you live your life from then on, you have already committed a sin which will be punished if you are not pardoned. If you commit a crime, and then live as a good citizen you still will go to jail for the crime you committed. Right? Just as the president can pardon a crime so you won't go to jail, Jesus can pardon your sins so that you do not go to hell, and can go to heaven when you die.

    3. If you will Admit to Jesus Christ that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior, Believe in your heart that He died on the cross and rose from the dead and Accept Him as your Lord and Savior and you will be forgiven and taken to heaven to be with Him when you die.

    Joh 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name”

    Ro 10:9,10 "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.."

    You cannot get to heaven by being a good person, going to church, baptism or any other way other than by turning to Jesus, believing in your heart that He died on the cross and rose from the dead for your sins and placing your trust in Him. While these are good things to do, some people believe that they will get to heaven if they do these things, but the bible says that there is only one way to heaven and that is through receiving what Jesus Christ did on the cross for you.

    Will you do that today? If you will, you can be 100% sure that you will go to heaven when you die.

    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS AND ROSE FROM THE DEAD FOR YOUR SINS?

    ARE YOU WILLING TO TURN TO JESUS CHRIST FOR SALVATION?

    4. If you are willing to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and believe it with all of your heart, you could pray something like this to God from your heart:

    "Dear Lord Jesus, I believe that You died on the Cross and Rose from the dead for my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and forgive me for my sins, save me, take me to be with You when I die. I now receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus holy name, Amen."

    If you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ and meant it with all of your heart, you are now a child of God and will go to heaven.

    Now that you are on your way to heaven, you should attend a bible believing church and follow in baptism.

    OP - So you come to a Christian board and your first post is how to be saved? You think the people here are unaware of this? Does this mean that you are questioning the salvation of the members here which is clearly not allowed here as per the rules that you agreed to when you joined?

    I really wish people would realize that Paul didn't take 10 chapters in Romans to build up to a prayer being the thrust of the gospel.

    His "gospel" for salvation from hell was finished after Romans 4.

    Romans 10 is an Eschatological salvation, and verses 9-13 in no way support a prayer. "Calling on" (Rom 10:13) and confession (Rom 10:9) are the same thing - a lifelong acknowledgement of Christ, in front of men.

    Then we will not be put to shame (Romans 10:11)....... AT HIS APPEARING (1John 2:28)

    Christ said if we confess Him before men, He will confess us before the Father. If we are ashamed of Him, He will be ashamed of us.


    Good grief, I wish people would study this issue instead of regurgitating the same out-of-context verses over and over

    I don't know if it's the same one or not. There are tons the same post on many websites under each name.

    Either it's one super bored guy living in his mom's basement or there's two of them....or they're brothers...or a couple...probably democrat(s) :rolleyes:.

    Just did a google search and it seems this guy posted the EXACT same post in March of 2008 on another board. I see a bunch of posts like this - and a bunch of bans.

    What do you expect to get on a Baptist Board? Are you offended by the Gospel?

    Yes it's me. I have been witnessing online actually since 2005 by the Grace of God. Yes the people commenting on this post ARE interesting. I wouldn't expect people claiming to be Baptists to be offended by the Gospel. I would expect them to be supportive of the Gospel. And the prayer is Biblical and in accordance with Romans 10:9-10-13.

    Here is the prayer let's compare it with the scriptures:

    "1)Dear LORD JESUS, I believe that YOU died on the Cross and Rose from the dead for my sins. 2)I ask you to come into my heart and forgive me for my sins, take me to heaven when I die. 3) I now receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You for saving me. In Jesus holy name, Amen."

    Let's do check the scriptures.


    1) Ro 10:9 Because if you confess the Lord Jesus...

    The prayer does this

    2) and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead,

    The prayer does this if from the heart

    3) you shall be saved.

    The prayer does this

    2) For with the heart one believes unto righteousness

    If you say the prayer from your heart this will happen

    and with the mouth one confesses unto salvation.

    The prayer does this. You pray with your mouth.

    Ro 10:13 For everyone, "whoever shall call on the name of the Lord will be saved."

    The prayer does this

    I have a question regarding this comment (I know it's a minor issue in the OP as a whole). There seems to be two views (at least) regarding the motivation in evangelism and the motivation for salvation. Is it a desire to go to heaven or is it that the gospel forms in us a sorrow that produces repentance leading to salvation?

    My issue with “becoming saved” so that I can go to heaven instead of hell is that this is still a self-centered motive. I do not understand how true repentance can lead towards this kind of thinking. But when we are broken by the realization of our sin…that leads us to God - on our knees, brokenhearted crying for mercy even if God were not to show it. God is faithful and merciful. I am just not sure that He saves people on the basis that they want to go to heaven.

    As always - correction welcomed (even if I disagree :smilewinkgrin:).

    So this prayer saves you?

    What of the thief on the cross? He didn't use this formula. Was he saved?
