"O L-RD, Who are my power and my strength and my refuge in the day of trouble, to You nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, 'Only lies have our fathers handed down to us, emptiness in which there is nothing of any avail! Can a man make gods for himself, and they are no gods? 'Therefore, behold I let them know; at this time I will let them know My power and My might, and they shall know that My Name is the L-RD".
Jeremiah 16:19-21

People who have been stuck in religion are conditioned to separate all their little issues into one of two categories: A Salvational Issue and Not a Salvational Issue.  Conversations and debates typically remain civil, until there begins to be a discrepancy involving a “salvational issue”.  This is based upon a premise that you have to follow what mainstream christianity teaches, which is repeat a “sinner’s prayer”.  Unfortunately, there is no such prayer, and no such insinuation in scripture (Tanach) which requires any such prayer.  Many use the term “born again” and “accepting” Jesus (Yeshua) into your heart and then WAMMO you are now a child of God.
What they fail to realize is that you already were a child of God.  If you were to speak to any real scholar of the scriptures (once again…Tanach) you wouldn’t hear them use “saved”.  That is purely a religious, more specifically, christian term invented to increase their own religion.  What you would hear from a real, qualified, and learned teacher is the term “the world to come”.  Will the wicked be punished? Absolutely

Is there (or will there be) a literal, fiery, burning inferno called “hell” forever and ever? NO
(This, once again, is a christian invention and based entirely upon the christian writings and a wonderful book “Dante’s Inferno”)

If I repeat the words my Pastor told me to does that help? NO

Can I make up the words myself? NO 

Is my Pastor going to make it to the world to come? UNLIKELY

God detests idolatry.  He has warned people over and over to remove idols from their lives.  He has warned repeatedly to NOT worship anyone or anything else but HIMSELF.  So, why would someone want to worship an impostor?  Worshiping anyone or anything than God Himself (alone) is grounds for NOT entering the world to come.

So, I can basically run amok and live how I want? NO WAY

So then I need to do something?  YES

What do I need to do?  

Simple answer: Love God.  Remove the idols from your life.  Follow His Commandments
(some say that to follow His commandments is impossible or in vain, yet God Himself said that you can…who are you going to believe? Man or God)
 Read Deuteronomy 30 to find out for yourself

The basic principles of following the Noahide laws as they are commonly called are believed to be the very basic and universal standard for all of mankind.  There is nothing more basic and nothing you have to “convert” to, kneel to, pray to, except to follow the very basic rules established for man to follow.  

For additional information please (for once in your life) stop listening to all the opinions out there (even mine) and investigate this for yourself.  You don’t want to get caught with that idol in your pocket when your time comes.
