Word of the Day, - January 28, 2015"For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God." ~ Romans 8:6-8More Like This
Only Christians Go to Heaven?￼Q: If only Christians go to Heaven then does that mean more than 3 quarters of the world go to ‘hell’? I think it must be pretty crowded at this point.....and what about animals? They don’t know Jesus from a blade of grass to munch on........so does that mean heaven is a huge church that sings hymms, has bar-b-ques (guess that answers the animal part of my question), on Easter Sunday with Jesus as the guest of honor and never a sorry word is ever said??More Like This
These are great questions. I have decided to break them down and address them one at a time.
>>”If only Christians go to heaven....?”
That depends on what is meant by the term Christian. To be a true Christian is to be one who has received forgiveness of sins by the Grace of God through repentance and faith in Christ and are following Christ as Lord of his/her life..

that pleased with it, feeling as though it might rain any second, which would be horrible
considering the circumstances.
Slowly I stepped one foot at a time into the water. The lake was cold today, which I
expected, as I felt a chill run through my entire body. The chill wasn't simply from the
cold however. I was...well, I wasn't too nervous but I was a little. But it wasn't really
anything complicated. It was important but I definitely wasn't worried.
There was a line of others in front of me and behind me in the water. The order went from
youngest to oldest. A young girl whom I guessed was about seven or eight years old was
first and a few people behind me in the back was a couple maybe in their mid-thirties. I
was near the middle, being eighteen. I could tell I wasn't the only one who was cold
A Life With and Without GodI always grew up in a Christian home. My mom practically raised me on her own until she married my step dad. My parents divorced when I was only 2. When my mom remarried, I was 5 years old. My mom was pregnant with my little sister at the time, and I was adjusting to having a new dad when we moved into some apartments across town from where I lived before. Being a shy 5 year old, I didn't have many friends, and I wasn't sure how to make any. There was a park literally feet from the new home I had with my mom and new dad. I often played alone near the large tires while other kids played on the structure made of wood. I don't remember how it happened but this place would bring bad memories to me for years. I know it started soon after I moved in. I was only 5 years old, still very innocent minded, when some older kids asked me if I wanted to play with them. Of course I agreed thinking 'Older kids wanna play with me?! COOL!' In those old monster truck tires was where I wasMore Like This
