About God

So we have been taught what is right and wrong in the eyes of God.
Do terrible things and you will pay, (go to hell ect.)
What about how they say accept God into your heart and you will be saved,
God will forgive. I'm confused. Do you have the answer?

  • No one does.
    Its all part of the interpretation of denominations,etc.

    What do YOU believe? Follow that.

  • No matter what you've done, if you go to God with a sincere repentant heart,and ask for His forgiveness, He's going to give it to you. If you accept Jesus as your Savior, you won't go to hell. Romans 3:23 says For ALL have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God. But, we can come to Him, He is a loving,forgiving,merciful,graceful God who wants us to have a relationship with Him,and He wants to forgive us,but we have to ask. That shows Him we are sincere,and want to be forgiven and move on.

  • I'm not really sure what you're asking. Bad things still happen to good people. Accepting Christ doesn't mean you become untouchable, its about the hereafter and what you can expect after death.

  • I am not sure what you are asking. Are you asking if God will forgive you if you do wrong? In the bible it says you have to ask for forgivness for any wrong doings. The Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for everyones sins to be cleansed and all they have to do is ask forgivness. You have to believe that he is your savior and change the way you do things to please him. Even after you ask him to come into your heart and ask for forgivness you are still going to make mistakes and you still have to ask for forgiveness.
