I don't really care about God, or Jesus or any kind of love or spiritual guidance they may offer. But I don't want to go to hell (I don't really care about heaven). What are my options?

Well, in Christianity there is only heaven and hell. To go to heaven, one must believe that Jesus is the Messiah (the Son of God) and you need to repent and turn from your sins. Going to church, being nice, and giving money don't get you into heaven. Faith and repentance does. But faith and repentance have to be genuine, you can't just say a prayer to be "right with God." God knows and judges our hearts, he knows us better than we do.

We go to hell because we have unforgiving sin, and the only way to be forgiven is through faith and repentance. So in a way, your options are either repent or not, it's your choice. You don't have to be "good" in the sense of being nice and going to church and stuff (although we should do that as an act of love and worship for God, and He will reward us) but you do have to have genuine faith and turn from sins through repentance before Jesus Christ.

damn...looks like I'm going to hell...
I was hoping you could drink a bottle of holy water once a day and go to purgatory or something.

"LAWL"

Isn't the elixir of life something that has to do with genetics?
Whatever.


No No No, it has been with you ever since you are born. You just need to realize it. (Zen mode : on) LAWL.

Hmm.. ok here is a question I asked to a religious Zealout and never got an answer too.

So often times you hear Christians say "I will pray for you". Why do you guys do this? I mean by definition, god gave all of humanity free will to believe whatever he or she wants to believe. Meaning that no matter what you pray about others you cannot do them any good, because if god changes this person's mind then go no longer gives us free will.

Secondly, as far as I can remember, in order to be saved you have to believe on your own. So if said individual does not believe they will go to hell no matter how much you vouch for them.

So I ask, what is the point? Most Christians will tell me I am going straight to hell for not believing, or if I challenge them they will get angry and threaten me in some way. So being nice and altruistic towards non-Christians just seems like a waste of energy. What is the point of praying for another?

Because whoever wrote the new testament had tried bacon and knew how awesome it was.
