  • A lot of people believe that. What if that's not really all that is required?

  • They can be saved the same as anyone by accepting Jesus into their hearts as their savior. When Jesus came to earth and gave his life he said the old rules were over and that all you needed to get into heaven was to accept him as Gods son, and love one another. Thats pretty simple. Doesnt matter if your Jewish or any other. Same rules for one people.

  • only the 144,000 as spoken of in revelation. Cause after armageddon the earth will work it's way back to perfection the way it was supposed to be, so those that are not included in the 144,000 heavenly government, will be on the earth.


    just a few: dan:2:44


    psalm 37:11


    rev ; 14:1

  • I' ve heard it all my life and I don't think the bible can be interpreted by so many to end up that they were all wrong. I have to trust in God that he put in place a tool (the Bible) for us to learn and study and for others to help teach and spread the word.

  • all you have to do is accept the gift of salvation. you cant recieve it if you dont accept it. belive that the Lord Jesus died for our sins. "for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever belieeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life" he said "whosoever" that means any one and everyone. God will not deny you if you seek him whole heartedly.

  • my religion is named for the belief that God is so loving "He" would condemn no one to eternal punishment. The Universalist part of Unitarian Universalist means everyone is saved by the power of God's love. (Unitarian means one God.).

  • My Bible doesn't say it's hard to get into Heaven...where did you read that at? I can show you the parts that give instructions on how to get there :)

  • "Enter through the narrow gate.For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" (Matthew 7:13,14). Is this the verse you are speaking of? I believe its more than believing in God, even Satan believes in God. Its a heart change that takes place once you are saved, you still sin but you truly want to live like Christ and serve him. I'm not even going to comment on the 144,000. Thats just not truth.
