Technically Abraham did not go straight to heaven as many people think. Abraham and all other righteous people did not go to heaven until Jesus Christ the son of God came to earth in human form to die for our sins. At this time all believers of God ascended into heaven. and no one will go to heaven until Christ returns. as it says in in 1 Corinthians 15:52 it says"...the Christians who have died will be raised with transformed bodies."


When Christ died on the cross He died for all and that included Adam and Eve and everyone after. The Bible teaches that "there is no other name under heaven" to save mankind other than the name of Jesus; "by one man (Jesus)" all mankind are saved; Everyone including people who lived before Jesus' time were saved by Jesus' death on the cross. So then how can people before Jesus time be saved through Jesus' atonement when they knew nothing about Jesus is the question. The answer is simple. If they did not know they will know and yes even after death they can and will know about Jesus otherwise God must have some other way of saving them and that is a absolute contradiction with biblical teaching about salvation in Christ alone.

Can it be proven that Jesus died on the cross?

no one can prove this to meAnswer II:No, that's why we call it fiction. Are you calling the Gospels lies? They were written by eyewitnesses. "YOU call it fiction."When you see Alexander the Great resurrected, you will worship him because you didn't believe in the resurrection of Jesus. You'll still have a chance to accept Christ as your savior after the rapture. see God bless you all.

What is the importance of Jesus Christ?

Since Adam all mankind was born as being tainted with the original sin committed by Adam and Eve. This being so all mankind would be resurrected but would have no chance to return to Gods presence unless someone atoned on behalf of mankind. Christ was the only sinless one who was able to do this. It was He who gave his life in payment for the transgressions of Adam and mankind. This payment of the debt has no effect on any of Gods children unless they repent and accept Christ as their savior. That they will be resurrected is true but they will not spent the eternities with God.

How can one man like Jesus Christ save the whole world?

According to my beliefs, Jesus Christ was more then a man. He is also the Son of God. Because He took all our sins upon himself, suffered and died for those sins, our debt has been paid. But in order to have our sin debt paid for us we have to accept Jesus Christ as our savior. All that means is that we need to acknowledge that He is the Son of God and that He died for our sins. When we stand before the Lord on our judgment day, Jesus acts as our lawyer (if you will) and says that our debt has been paid. The whole world will be given the chance to accept Jesus as their savior. Sadly not the whole world will choose Him. Some choose themselves and that is sad. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Hope to see you there. Thus if Jesus Christ was only a man He would have been essentially crazy for thinking and proclaiming that He could save the world. Thankfully, all His statements about Himself were proven true when He arose from the dead, thus proving that His death was not in vain and He really was who He claimed to be, the Lord of life itself. If He is such a person, then saving the world is indeed what He can do, if He is permitted to.

What do 'I can accept failure but I can't accept not trying' and 'you miss 100 percent of the shots you never take' have in common?

They are both related to the fact that if you at least try, you have some chance of succeeding, where if you do not try there is no chance at all of success.
