Jesus' words on this matter....If by chance there is a judgment upon death, I will face it with my head held high. My life speaks for itself. I am willing to let my actions and deeds determine whether or not I am a righteous person.
Let me ask you this: Who stands a better chance of salvation, a man who prays and preaches what Jesus taught but is only concerned with his own fate or someone who lives as Jesus lived but doesnt believe in God?
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten
Son, that whoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world through him may be saved.
3:18 He that believeth on him, is not condemned: but he that
believeth not, is condemned already, because he hath not
believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.
3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the
world, and men have loved darkness rather than light, because
their deeds were evil.
3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither
cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
3:21 But he that doeth truth, cometh to the light, that his
deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
So simple... even a Liberal can do it!
