Many people say they have faith.
But it's the object of your faith that will determine your eternal destiny.

I stake my life on it. Faith is not pride, but a promise I believe with all my heart. The Great Reformers understood and opened the scriptures to us.

John 17:13 "This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent."

Someone once told me that I could not know for certain that I was going to heaven, but I believe the Bible. 1John 5:13 "These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.'
