I don't know, because I don't believe in a hell, and really, not a "heaven" per se.
Maybe someone else can answer your question.
No matter what your answer will be, one should always be positive in their day-to-day life - as it makes life move by soooo much happier.
But for those who DO believe that others will burn in hell ... do you perceive that is a positive way for them to believe???

That was my question.

Little children die from cancer every day.
If your supposed god exists, he enjoys observing all forms of suffering, and that means there would BE no excuse for his all-powerful behavior. He would know it, just as you know it ... but for your cheap promise by nitwit theologians of salvation, you keep on being silly.
"OH I love you god!!! Please love ME god!!!" ... drool ... slobber ... blah, blah, blah.
I ordered that book "The God-Shaped Brain" and think you should read it, seriously, because you are actually damaging your brain when you dwell on a hateful, sadistic, arbitrary god.
You are causing actual functional damage which in negatively affecting your ability to experience love, exercise reason, and problem solve. Not to mention what is happening to your immune system.
The good news is all this can be reversed simply by spending a little time each day contemplating a loving God.
If you can't imagine a loving God, then this book will help you in that area.
This is the best book I've seen that examines the connection between your body and your faith.
I recommend it also to anyone who might read this post.

I am at last free from religion ... but I am not free from me.

I still have to deal with emotional and physical pain ... but at least now I don't believe that a creator had any part in any plan.

And THAT is a huge relief.

example of Salvation being received in the NEW TESTAMENT.
BELOW IS THREE OCCASIONS THAT GIVE WITNESS
OF HOW ONE CAN BE BORN AGAIN...
Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Joh 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
EXAMPLE #1
Act 16:30 ...... Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Act 16:32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
Act 16:33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
Act 16:34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.
~~~
EXAMPLE #2
Act 8:35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
Act 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
Act 8:37 And Philip said,
If thou believest with all thine heart,
thou mayest. And he answered and said,
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
Act 8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
Act 8:39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
~~~
EXAMPLE #3
Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Rom 10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Amen Kay

Salvation is ONLY through Jesus. Forgive the change here I just remembered my sign in from 3 years ago

I was denied Holy Communion....that is part of being excommunicated...
However, that was some forty years ago..no telling what they have changed since then...
Divorce doesn't place one in a state of grave, unrepentant sin.

Divorce and remarriage without an annulment precludes you from Communion (in the strict construct of Canon Law).

Plus, the priest would have to KNOW that you're divorced and remarried sans annulment in order for him to even begin to consider withholding of the sacrament. BTW, the communicant situated as described is the one who has primary responsibility to abstain from presenting themselves for Communion, not the priest to withhold it.

That was my point earlier as well.
Her position is that the Catholic Church is "wrong" at best, apostate most of the time by her posts, and she apparently doesn't care for how they vetted the scriptures when declaring canon.......
...BUT she holds the Bible they came up with as the sole foundation of her faith.
Yeah, that makes sense.
This kind of thing is why I refused to be protestant anymore. I got tired of the freakin confusion, the whip lash, the nonsensical stances, the brain-straining cognitive dissonance, the feeling like I had to almost have alter egos, one for each mutually exclusive set of ideas I was supposed to believe.

1:15 leads off with "In those days", which is a segue from the events noted in 1:14.
You're also welcome.
you are wrong again Dan. this is ALL ONE EPISODE THAT LUKE IS TELLING. GEESH,

and verse 14 also speaks of the [brothers] of Jesus who now believe and are with their Mary.lol

14) These men continued in united prayer [for the kingdom to come? See 1:6; Matt. 6:10] along with [certain] women, Mary the mother of Jesus and His [half-] brothers.

What if it is a simple as this.
The Church started with the Apostles. And grew into an institution that became very intertwined with Emperor and kings later on. The kings used the authority of religion and the Church used the authority of the kings.
GOd did not want this political institution to be the ONLY way His word was spread.
He allowed for the Reformation..the distribution of bibles and the spread if His Word across the seas. NOTHING that big could happen without Him.
GOD blessed our country for its basic faithfulness and allowed us to ally with Israel.
Our internet and television ministries both Catholic and non spread the Good Word all over.
Our missionaries both Catholic and Non do wonderful work in poor places and Spread the Good Word.
He allowed this country to become a shining city .
He allowed for Vatican 2
He allowed for Popes who are now independent of kings and politics and ask for UNITY between the brethren...meaning us.
And for good relations with Israel
And He allowed for the generalized ACTUAL BIBLE study along with the catechism they had. For Catholics..with actual bibles
GOD HAS ALWAYS HAD A,PLAN for His,Church.(His Bride..the believers)
And maybe He needed alliance with the Emperor's to preserve His word.
But HE obviously did not desire that it be kept locked up for ONLY the clergy to interpret.
GOD ALLOWED all of this.
I believe He used ALL of theses methods including the printing press...tv..And internet..So that His word would be spread as far as,possible before the END TIMES.
Catholics BELIEVE it's only through them we are saved
We believe in the Bible as the way.
Maybe for each time in history it was through both .
So that most who hear will believe the ONLY NECESSARY WORD.
Jesus died for our Sins. We need to repent and receive Him. He is the Way..The Truth and the Light.
AT SOME POINT..it will be too late..He wants that none shall perish
Imo..to jealously say I AM THE ONLY WAY Is so wrong.
GOD allowed the Reformation so more of His word was spread ..period.
GOD allowed the Church in Rome to copy and preserve scripture.AND TO COMPILE THE SCRIPTURE
We needed each other.to do His will.
And it is folly to believe differently. Imo
If there are errors in how we practice ....GOD WILL CORRECT THEM.
But the WORD ..JESUS IS THE WAY. Is His word and it will go out because He wants it to by what ever means He allows
And the Spirit will show us the truth in the Word.
That would all be nice and fluffy and stuff except for the fact that the Reformation promulgated lies at the expense of the truth and has put millions of souls in jeapordy.
There can not be 43,000 different truths.

However, God does take horrible events such as the Reformation and make good come of it. It was not, imo, what He had in mind when He prayed that His Church be ONE, as He and the Father are ONE.
I don't think Martin Luther came along and convinced God that it was a good thing to SHATTER His Church into 43,000 shards.
