“For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”) yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.” 1 Corinthians 7:24

  • Whoever believes in God will have eternal life
  • Heaven vs. Hell: belief in God=eternity in heaven no belief in God=eternity in hell
