The Bible clearly teaches that there is nothing more important than the human soul, "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Matt 16:26 KJV).
Have you ever stopped to think that a billion years from now, you will still be in existence? Your soul will be in one of two places: heaven or hell.
The Scriptures teach that whenever anyone who is of an accountable age commits a sin he is lost. (For a discussion on what "accountable age" is, please see the bulletin article entitled TULIP).
"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." 1 John 3:4 (KJV). Sin is a transgression of God's law. When one transgresses God's law, he is separated from God, "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear." Isaiah 59:2 (KJV).
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 (KJV). When one enters this state, he is in need of asking the question; "What must I do to be saved?"
Hear - the word of God.
Believe - that Jesus is the Son of God.
Repent - of your sins.
Confess - your belief in Christ.
Be Baptized - for the remission of sins.
