Heaven or hell: Where will this Christian go after he lusts?

QUESTION:

There was a Good Christian Man he prayed all Night & read his Bible next morning he was on the way to His office on the way he show very Beautiful Girl and he lust with her fall into sin all of sudden he Had accident and He died tell me where will he go Heaven or Hell?

David

ANSWER:

Well, David, you ask a very good question. Sexual urges are an issue that men (and women) struggle with. I assume that the the man is a truly, genuine born again Christian through faith in Christ. I assume that you mean he is in the act itself right before he dies. I don’t know if you mean that he is a married or single man – and the same with the woman.

In short, the answer to your question is that he will go to heaven, even if he is married. There are several principles that I need to mention to bolster my answer.

1. First, adultery (or any sex outside of marriage) will never send anyone to Hell. The only condition to go to Heaven is faith in Jesus Christ, and being born again with that expression of faith. The Bible states, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Let me show you another couple of verses that were very helpful to me. Jesus stated the following, “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18). 

There are just two groups of people in the world, according to this verse: the judged and non-judged. Furthermore, there is only one condition separating the two: belief, or faith. I recall when I first saw this verse. I looked as hard as I could, and could not find any other condition other than belief. 

I could not find any condition, such as divorce, murder, adultery, smoking, drinking, not going to church, gossip, not praying or reading the Bible, or any other thing. 

2. Second, the activity of the lonely chap will certainly displease God, and God will discipline the young (or old) man in the manner God chooses. The Bible says, “and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, ‘My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, Nor faint when you are reproved by Him; for those whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and He scourges every son whom He receives.’ It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?” (Hebrews 12:5-7). <br><br>

The goal in discipline is always correction, not punishment. A judge punishes, a father disciplines. 

3. There is forgiveness, cleansing, and restoration for all who sin. John states, “If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 8, 9).

4. David, you are searching for the sin that will send a Christian to hell. There is none. The key issue in salvation is the penalty that is attached to sin. All people have sinned, and deserve the punishment of eternal Hell (Romans 3:23). So the principle problem is what can we do with the penalty?

The answer is that Christ, when He was crucified, went to Hell, and rose again, paid in full the entire penalty for all sin for all those who received Him as their Savior. There is no other way to cancel the penalty, except for Christ. Consider the following:

“By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all…but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God…For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified” (Hebrews 10:10, 12,14).

There is nothing we can do to lose our salvation. The only thing that would jeopardize our salvation is if there was some way to attach an eternal penalty to our sin, but that is impossible. Why? Because Christ paid the full, entire eternal penalty for all sin for all time for all those who by faith receive His pardon.

Let me put it a different way. Just one sin of any kind carries enough penalty to send people to hell for eternity. Just one. James states, “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all” (James 2:10). 

Consequently, it does us no good to search for the sin that will send us to hell, because if we sin any sin just a little bit, it is enough to condemn us. It is like a bank robber. It doesn’t matter if he steals $10,000 or $100,000 – he is still a bank robber and will go to jail at his conviction.



Here is another illustration. Let’s say you are a very good person, and sinned only one little sin a day. That would be seven sins a week, and 365 sins a year, and if you live to be 70, it would be over 25,000 sins. What do you think God will do to you when you stand before His judgment seat? He will throw you in hell and throw away the key!

We are, then, in desperate need for another way to get to heaven. God provided it. Paul wrote, “For by Grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast” (Ephesians 2:8, 9). A gift cannot be earned or worked for. Grace means undeserved favor. In other words, we don’t deserve any salvation, but God grants it as a gift. 

On what basis can He offer salvation as a gift and still be just? Because, Christ suffered the entire penalty for us. Paul again writes, “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

Consider again, “For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly…But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him” (Romans 5:6, 8).

5. Sometimes the accusation comes, “You mean I can go sin all I want because I am saved?” Paul anticipated this idea, and replied, “What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace might increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it?” (Romans 6:1).

When we are saved we are given a new nature, power, and desire to live for God. However, we still have that old sinful nature living in us that tends to push us to sin. With the power of the Holy Spirit who lives in us, we can live a victorious Christian life, but that does not mean we will be perfect. Perfection will come to us when we enter heaven.

Christians will sin, but they will not lose their salvation. They will lose the joy of their salvation and close fellowship with God. God will discipline us, and when we turn from the sin and confess it to God, that family fellowship is restored.   

Hope this helps. I encourage you to read my studies on salvation and assurance of salvation. You can find them in the table of contents. 

All the best, and God bless…tell others about this website.
