The true father of Jesus is God, the Heavenly Father. His earthly father was Joseph, husband of Mary. The plan was hatched in Heaven after mankind sinned against God back in the Garden of Eden. With this disobedience, mankind, who was meant to be immortal, was suddenly mortal and not worthy of God's blessings. In a last-ditch effort for redemption, God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die as a payment for the sins of mankind. Jesus died so all people had the chance to choose for themselves, to serve and love our Creator and His son Jesus and live as we were always intended to, or choose earthly pleasures and follow the fallen angel, Satan. As always, the chose is ours, free will proves that we are not God's puppets. Those who choose to follow God do so out of love and gratitude, not because they have been pre-programmed to do so.

The rewards will be many, an eternity with a loving Father, His only Son, our mediator, we never have to face the Father alone. Jesus is always standing by us when we are judged either worthy or unworthy. Jesus tells us in the bible that the only way to the Father is through the Son. So for those that don't believe or refuse to live by God's law, and ask Jesus to be their personal saviour, those will be lost forever. The bible tells us that as wonderful as Heaven is, Hell will that that horrible, beyond human comprehension.
