I'm 15 and I don't want to go to hell. What can I do so I can go to heaven? how do you make it to heaven?

I just saw a video about people who try to obey the ten commandments will not go to heaven because they don't really have it in their heart. I'm not a bad person but I know like anybody else I have my slips. my main thing that I always do sometimes is have sexual thoughts it's hard for me to give it up... what do I do if I want to go to heaven.... I mean if we all obey everything god says then would that be somewhat impossible though? therefore how do we still make to to heaven?

We've all broken the commandments..we've all sinned an fallen short from the glory of God. In Gods eyes we r criminals bc we've broken his laws... We need Jesus to wash our sins away and be our "bail" outa Gods prison, hell..but God being rich in mercy provided a savior, Jesus of Nazareth. He lived a sinless life so he can be the pure and only sacrifice for the atonement for our sins. He was whipped, tried, spat on, and nailed to a cross for hours on end. The last words he said was "IT IS FINISHED!" Which means he paid your fine in full! God can legally dismiss your case bc Jesus paid ur fine in full.. Salvation is a free gift to all those who repent and trust in him. Give your life over to him and turn from your sin, follow in his footsteps and have a relationship with him, it's not about religion it's a relationship,..and trust in him alone, not in your Good works not in yourself or anything else but in him... Invite him into your heart and he'll give you a new heart and new desires and a passion to live for him. You'll hate sin and live righteousness and live your life pleasing to God...read the bible daily and obey it. God bless you!

Good works mean nothing.. Your good cant out weigh your bad... Ephesians 2:8-9 says " for it is by grace you've been saved through faith and not of yourselves, it's a gift of God and not by works lest any man should boast." Salvation is a free gift to all those who repent and trust in him

don't worry about it. nothing Is going to change when you're sad, besides, don't change who you are, maybe just change the way you do or say them :) and we all have a few thoughts here or there. life is a gift. don't frown when its over, (however that may be)

But remember believing in heaven doesn't get you there... You need the blood of Jesus to cleanse you from all unrighteousness and to live obeying his commandments...
Report as
But how am I/we suppose to get the blood if Jesus? By earning it? I thought we were all Gods children in which we are the blood of Him
Report as
No you cannot earn everlasting life... Salvation is a free gift to all those who repent and trust in him. When you accept Jesus into your life and are born again of the spirit you are then adopted into Gods family...none of us are just naturally Gods children... U can't do goo works to get into heaven...Ephesians 2:8-9 says" for it is by grace you have been saved through faith, an not of yourselves, it is a gift from God and not by works lest any man should boast"

Accept Christ as your Saviour! Basically, you can kneel and say, Lord, I know that I am a sinner. I also know that Your Son, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for my sins so that I could go to Heaven. I ask for Your forgiveness and for the Holy Spirit to enter my heart. In Jesus' name I pray, amen. If you do this, then when Judgement Day arrives, God will see Jesus when you go to enter Heaven, and He knows that you have accepted Jesus into your heart. Congrats :) hope we meet in Heaven someday! God bless you

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.That poor girl could let her fear and guilt seperate her from God.How could he want that?

He doesn't want that? That why he sent Jesus to pay her fine in full, to sen us the Holy Spirit after he ascended and change our hearts, hating sin and loving righteousness... No temptation will be to strong for those livin by the Holy Spirit... Yes there's times when you fall and we have temptation all the time but we have one stronger than that

Accept Jesus as your one and only Savior and your way into Heaven. After that, you keep faith, spread his word, and read the bible. It sounds hard, but if you try, you can do it. If you make a mistake, ask Jesus/God for forgiveness, then try to do better. Good luck, and have a happy life.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
- John 3:16

Humble yourself before God and repent of your sins and ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins. Then ask Jesus to be Lord and Savior of your life. Then you need to Pray and read the Bible and find a good Christian Church to attend and fellowship with other believers. Then you need to have brothers and sisters in the Lord to pray for you to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will give you power to overcome sin in your life. God Bless!

We are imperfect beings subject to our frailties. You said it yourself, your not a bad kid. That's what is important. Do your best for yourself and others, forgive those who do you wrong, love God and love your neighbor. God knows what is in your heart.
As for me, I believe that God will never give up on me or us. I feel his Love everyday, even when I fall victim to my own devices. Sometimes I feel my shortcomings are a great source of amusement to Him. I can hear him laughing.
I know there is a place at His table for me, I'm sure there is one for you.
Gods Peace.

Bad news, YOU can't do anything to get to heaven. If you messed up once, which we've all messed up, you blew it. But, there's a guy named Jesus. He is God's son. He lived a perfect life. God knows that we can't make it to heaven, but yet loves us so much that he decided to sacrifice his own son, FOR US. Jesus was nailed onto a cross and died. But, three days later he rose again. Because of that, we can go to heaven. All you have to do is believe that it really happened. It's that simple.

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. For ?Everyone who calls on the name of the L ord will be saved.? (Romans 10:9, 10, 13 NLT)

I'm not religious. But in the bible it says god accepts everyone and forgives all sins. So IF there even is a heaven, you should be able to get in anyway. Doesn't mean you can go kill people and stuff like that though...

He doesn't accept all into heaven... Only those who have been cleansed by the blood of the lamb.., and God forgives all those who repent and turn away from sin and trust in him.. Narrow Is the gate that leads to life and very few who find it

Ok. But if he doesn't accept everyone where do the others go? I'm skeptic about heaven, but i don't believe there is a hell. I'm so confused about religion anyway. It's just that the buble contradicts itself in so many ways.

It's not about religion...it's either heaven or hell...if God is just and good and holy then he doesn't let sin go unpunished... For the wages of sin is death.. Our sins are crimes against God, headed for his prison called hell. The only way you can escape it is by taking the bail that Jesus paid for you in full.. Salvation is a free gift to all those that repent and trust in him...

You first need to
1.let God know that you are truly sorry for you sins.
(If you say you have never sinned-that makes you a liar/so NOW you ARE a sinner.
Romans 3:23 says:All have sinned and come short of God's perfection(glory).
2. ASK Forgiveness!
God is just and faithful to forgive!
(He willl not push Himself on us-WE have to ASK for forgiveness. Then RePENT(turn 180 degrees )from sinning again!human nature says we keep failing at this sinning thing -so keep short accounts with God. Always ask forgiveness the minute you know you have sinned-ask for guidance and strength to overcome temptation!
Next: the Bible says : Jesus died for Us while we were yet sinners!!
(The penality of our sinfullness is DEATH-eternal death!)
3. Ask Jesus into your life. He will send the Holy Spirit into you:at the moment if your conversion:
Your comforter/guide/conscience...
4. Thank Jesus for dying for you so that we dont have to.... And so that we can become Right-(righteous) before God and go to heaven.Your eternal journey begins now!
Your new job is to live as close to how Jesus lived. Help the needy/ poor/
Downtrodden/ defend the FAITH--- even unti death. spread the gospel story. tell your story!
You will be taunted and tempted and Satan will try to trip you up time and time again. Just know that the Eternal life in Heaven will be so much greater that anyrhing this world can offer.
He who is in you is greater that he who is in the world.
Nothing can snatch you out of HIS hand.... You are seald with the Holy Spirit til the day of redeeption!
The Angels rejoice in the heavens at one soul who comes to the Lord!
