No one is going to hell for making mistakes. Here’s how I know this to be true. For God so loves the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever “believes” on Him, will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). The operative word to get into eternal life is to believe, the opposite is true for hell.
We have come through an era of religious practice that attempts to achieve “perfection” in the flesh by behaving right. But right in who’s eyes? Certainly not God’s – because God’s measure is “believe” not behaviour.
Believe is a powerful measure because how a man or woman thinks, so they behave. Those who believe will follow through with “believe” behaviour. Those who don’t believe will not follow through.
Jesus said to His disciples, if you love me you will keep my commandments. The opposite must also be true. If you don’t love Jesus the Christ you won’t keep His commandments.
Lets release ourselves from the fear of making mistakes. No one is going to hell for making mistakes, people will go to hell for rejecting Jesus the Christ.
Preachers love to declare who will and won’t be sent to hell. It’s actually us as individuals that make that decision. If we decide to reject Jesus the Christ, that is the choice for a lost eternity. Decide wisely…decide to believe!
