      die any where without Jesus christ you will not excape hell.
      Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

      no other person claimed that.

        Just stop. This is no longer funny.let her be. I feel you but
        Let’s wait for the judgement day to see who’s right or wrong.

        Stay strong in whatever you believe in and embrace the book of luke 6:31 that says Do to otherse as you would have them do to you . That’s if you’re a Christian
        Please make it stop.
