As an observant Jew, I have only a rudimentary knowledge of Christianity. I must admit that I’ve learned a lot from perusing various posts and discussions on the SDMB. Therefore, I would appreciate an answer from anyone “in the know” out there about the following:
I was reading another thread yesterday concerning witnessing. Here is a quote from jenkisfan:
**"There are four things that God wants you to know in order for you to go to Heaven when you die.
- That you have sinned.
- Someone must pay your sin debt.
- Jesus Christ died, shed His blood, and rose from the grave which paid your sin debt.
- Jesus Christ wants to save you!"**
Suppose Hitler had a priest/reverend with him before he died, and he confessed his sins and expressed his belief in the above items. Would he have gone to heaven? According to Christian belief, are there any crimes so great that one simply cannot confess his/her belief in Jesus and end up in heaven?
