Is My Faith Sufficient?

Published: April 1, 2016 (Originally published: April 11, 2016)
Q

Is it possible for a person to believe (as the devils do), but not “sincerely” enough? For him to have so little “real” faith that he will not be saved, despite asking God for salvation? Is it possible that Jesus will say, “Your ‘belief’ was phoney. You never ‘really’ believed; you only thought you did. You never ‘really’ asked for salvation because your faith and belief were not genuine. You are a hypocrite and deceived yourself. I never knew you.”

Questions About Heaven

Published: April 1, 2016 (Originally published: April 5, 2016)
Q

In my reading and after talking to several people I know, I’m wondering about Heaven…as everyone does now and then. My question is: Who goes there when they die? or does anyone?

I ask because the bible has a lot of mention of people “sleeping for a time” until the judgement in Revelation.

It seems that maybe we die and sleep until the judgment, then perhaps wind up in our “prepared place” after the 1000 years of Christ’s reign on earth or something to that effect. But to add to my confusion, Christ says on the cross that the criminal next to him will be with Him in paradise that very day. Christ also says a lot about who will enter His kingdom…and it’s a lot more than faith alone, in Jesus’ words. Can you help me figure this out?
