That’s right – heaven or hell is the final destination for every human being. I want to crystal clear about this! All humans have been born into a state of Sin (with a big S). We commit sin (with a little s) because we are Sinners – not vice versa. At the instant of salvation, our Sin nature is changed and our sins are forgiven. Listen to Psalm 103

“12 As far as the eastern horizon is from the west,

so he removes the guilt of our rebellious actions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,

so the Lord has compassion on his faithful followers.”

This is possible because the blood of Jesus, shed on the cross of Calvary, paid the price for our Sin and sins. We call that atonement. Here are some helpful formulas:

Sin minus atonement equals hell

Sin plus atonement equals heaven
