Will God Forgive Me For My Sins?


Dear Brother Ron

This is a two part question.

I have messed up a lot so far in my life. I have had a couple of misdemeanors. I am trying to turn my life around. I don't really know if I believe in a god but they say god forgives every- one. If you believe in God, what do you think? And let me know if you believe in a heaven or a hell...

If you believe in heaven and hell what would your heaven and hell be like? I think heaven is suppose to be the things you love the most and hell is supposed to be the worst thing you could ever think of.

Dear Farelyis

It sounds like the main person you have harmed so far is yourself. It appears you have now decided to stop doing that to yourself. Good for you. Now what you must realize is that God has already forgiven you. Hopefully, this will make it possible for you to forgive yourself.

You asked what heaven and hell are like. Heaven is a total oneness with our Father. It is a realization of His timelessness and power. Hell is total separation from God and the hope- lessness and despair of feeling you are all alone in the world and the victim of insurmount- able forces beyond your control. We talk of a heaven above and a hell below when actually it is quite possible to create a personal heaven or hell here on earth.

Congratulations on your decision to escape from your personal hell. Whether you believe in God or not, He still believes in you. Now all you have to do is learn to listen for His voice and accept the love He has for you as His child. In doing so, you will find and achieve those things you most desire.

Best always
Brother Ron
