A lot of what happens in life is complicated and confusing. Life itself is complicated. For many people, their childhood is a blur. Navigating college and young adulthood is a challenge. Relationships are fraught with obstacles and difficulties. During these different periods of our lives, we often yearn for simple answers to the big questions that we face. We look for clear-cut solutions to the problems that we deal with. And we want straightforward advice on complicated life issues.

Life is like a narrow trail filled with twists, turns, hairpin bends, and deceptive forks in the road. We wish for clear road signs that will guide us throughout this life. But, as complicated as the rest of life is, there is one part of life that is, perhaps, surprisingly simple: that is the area of most importance -- the matter of the destiny of your eternal soul.

People often ask questions such as: What happens when I die? Where do I go when I leave this earth? Will I go to Heaven or Hell? Thankfully, all we have to do is turn to God's Word for clear answers to these questions.

The Bible states clearly that all people are sinners. Ecclesiastes 7:20 says, "For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not." Romans 3:23 reads: "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Because of our sins, we are automatically shut out of the family of God, and we are on our way to a place of punishment called Hell after we die. However, God wanted to provide a way for us to be reunited with Him, to become a part of His family. He wanted to save us from our sins and from the punishment of sin. That is why he put in motion a plan of salvation to give every human an opportunity to turn away from their old lifestyle and to gain a new life in Him. And salvation is not complicated.
