  • lol i guess because some people just don't want to be forgiven. You have to want to be redeemed before you are..

  • In order to be forgiven for your sins you have to accept Christ as your savior. Committing a mortal sin won't get you into heaven though. This is basically true, but other denominations have different rules regarding how it works.

  • i dont believe in hell, i believe that when time comes to be judged the righteous will possess the earth and the wicked will be cut off.

    “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.”—PSALM 37:29.

    (Psalm 37:10-11) And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more; And you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be. 11 But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace

  • Because you have to ask God to forgive your sins and accept His gift of eternal life. That was the whole point of Jesus dying on the cross. Because of our sins our punishment is death, but Jesus paid the punishment for us, but we have to accept that. If you don't accept the absolutely free gift then you go to hell.

  • hypothetically it's for those that don't believe in that God, and for those that's sins aren't asked to be forgiven.
