Sooner or later, each and every one of us will have a permanent change of address. Those whose names are written in the Book of Life will spend eternity with God in heaven; those whose names are not written in the Book of Life will go to hell—a place of eternal torment.
Rabbi Jesus famously asked, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36). The Message paraphrases it this way: “What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? What could you ever trade your soul for?”
Jesus also said, “43 And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. 45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell. 47 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, 48‘where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’” (Mark 9:43-48 ESV)

Anything is better than going to hell. If you haven’t taken care of this matter, please read this page before you do anything else.
