I guess a lot of you believe that your eternal soul will be sent to hell if you die without accepting Jesus as your lord and savior.

Can your soul escape hell if you behave well?

I mean, what if your soul reaches hell and says, "Jesus, I am truly sorry I did not believe in you, and I will accept my punishment without complaint."

Then, for many years, your soul accepts its punishment in the lake of fire and never whines. Your soul follows the rules in hell and does not try to escape. Your soul does not cause any trouble for the devil.

Do you think god may feel some compassion for you and, when the devil is distracted, reach down and pull you to safety?

No. Once there always there.

Once you're sentenced ........ that's it. Now is the time for salvation, not after death.
