Itís based on the most important decision youíll ever make not on past deeds. Itís your choice, not someone elseís.

So what if your were a bad person who changed and became some one who helped people? Would your past deeds be held against you if you changed and started doing the right things?

I think you just don't have to believe in Christ or god or something like that and you automatically go to hell. Good Luck!!! Yeah you know how murders can be saved if they just believe in god and all that but people who never hurt anyone who don't believe in god are going to totally burn in the lake of fire in HELL...

According to the Christians, you can do whatever you want and you'll be ok as long as you accept Jesus as your savior and ask him to forgive you just before you die. Oh, and you have to be sincere.

No, that's not really true. You can't just sin and do "whatever you want" all your life, then get into heaven by the skin of your teeth. That is the lie, and the illusion.
You have to not only believe in Jesus, accept Him as Saviour, but also be willing to forsake and give up sin. We are told to take up our cross daily. Are you? You are bought with a great price (Jesus' death), so are obligated to do the will of God (concerning you) the remainder of your life...every day of your life.

Are you willing?

There is no eternal burning "hell*" for humans that can be found in the Bible. In fact it says humans are mortal and can die in the Lake of fire, only the immortal fallen angels will burn forever. It is written in the Bible that there will be a future resurrection of humans to face judgment. The saved will be given eternal life while the unsaved will be cast into the Lake of Fire to die a second death. God said the wages of sin is death... not eternal torment.

*Don't get confused with the meaning of the word "hell" in the Bible, it simply means the graves where the dead bodies are buried. It is not the Lake of Fire.
