The film on this link does a pretty good job of showing that it is only through faith in Christ that you can have eternal life, and shows why the reasons many people think they will go to heaven are invalid.

I don't recommend the suggestion at the end of the film that you use the Living Bible translation (which I understand to be a paraphrase) however.

If you don't want to watch the film there is printed material. There are also other sections in the site which answers various categories of questions.

I do not know for sure. I'm still try to persevere to the end, while working out my own salvation with fear and trembling.

"So that we came back from death with him, and are seated (notice the past tense) with him in the heavens, in Christ Jesus"

So - don't get kicked out of heaven (like "Lucifer") ? Is that the message here?

Are you serious? Notice the past tense?

So for example, when you have a deep seated inflammation, even though it is presently in your skin, it is a past tensed event?

I'm sure that Jesus saved me. That's why He died! Thankyou God!

Wasn't able to watch the video but I scrolled down to read some of the literature. It is obviously very scewed towards christianity.

That literature showed that 55% of the people polled know they are going to Heaven, 35% think they are going to Heaven, 4% know they are going to Hell and 6% don't believe in Heaven or Hell.

I took my own poll here and got 7.69% know they are going to Heaven, 7.69% think they are going to Heaven, 0% know they are going to Hell and 76.92% don't believe in Heaven or Hell.

Quite the difference....wouldn't you say?

Yes, without a doubt.
Jesus doesn't say maybe saved...he says will be saved Mark 16:16

Yes....there isn't a shadow of doubt in my heart that I and many are going to heaven....

The promises of God are faithful and true.... and His word is Truth !!!

John 3:16
16. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

Acts 2:38
Peter said to them, " Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Rom.10:9
That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Eph. 1:13-14
13. In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation--having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise,
14. who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God's own possession, to the praise of His glory.

Ooops - I meant to say present tense (as opposed to future). I'm trying to help those who think heaven is an ethereal future event see that it is a present reality. The best way to be 'sure' is to be there.
