He is the only guarantee to heaven. He died to give an opportunity to spend eternity with Him. He took the penalty for all sins upon Himself so those who believe can receive His full payment rather than the penalty. He took your sins and mine to ensure our forgiveness. He gave His life to secure a new, forgiven, and free life for any who will believe. I always say, ” He is the only one who knows all about us, our nasty thoughts and dirty deeds and loves us anyway. He knows only His love heals and delivers from the horror of sin. See what the bibles says.
KJV John 3: 3. Jesus said. “Most assuredly, I say to you unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:5.

That the light has come into the world and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
