Skeptic Question #2

“Is it true that if someone who has committed a sin/crime so horrible and ask for forgiveness that they will in fact go to heaven?”

A sin is a sin….

Romans 3:23 says;

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

We’ve all messed up.  If there were sins that were too bad to be forgiven, where would the cutoff be?  Those who only lied?  How would we know what was “too bad” to be forgiven?  We’ve all sinned and are separated from God.  He can’t stand sin.  As a matter of fact, because of our sin, we’re separated from God

Romans 6:23 says

23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[a] Christ Jesus our Lord.

BUT the good thing amazing thing is that God sent Jesus to die for us – He sacrificed His life as a perfect offering so we could be forgiven and be with God.  Jesus died on the cross for all of us.  By accepting His ‘gift’ of dying for us and forgiveness, we are forgiven  & get to spend eternity with Him in heaven. God forgives all who truly repent (turn from their sins) and ask for forgiveness through Jesus.  No matter how big or small.  Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice – to say that His forgiveness doesn’t cover all sins, would take away from the power and truth of what happened on the cross.

Horrible crimes have consequences, but if someone truly turns to Jesus and asks for forgiveness, they are forgiven.
