That is the religion of Egypt and the Book of the Dead, where you have a scale that weighs the good and the bad, and if it goes the right way, you are allowed to pass on to the next stage.
If God is real, how will he judge me? Will he look at my life and see how many of his commandments I did and did not keep?

Do i believe any longer ,i really do not know !!
Right away, anyone claiming to be a prophet can be disqualified.
I just get so confused because if God is real and I have not believed the right way, I might be punished. How do I know what the right way is...I don't! I do not want to be deceived by a false god or a false profit, but I just feel so confused. Sorry to repeat that word, but it's just how I feel.
9Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Some people find that question offensive. Given the sheer multitude of religious beliefs worldwide, they reason that anyone who claims to have a monopoly on truth must be narrow-minded, even arrogant. Surely, it would seem, some good is to be found in all religions or at least most of them. Is that how you feel?

You know what, I was in the same boat for awhile. And I come to realize theres no use worrying about it hun. Like I said in another post, I feel as if as long as your a good person in your life and help others when you can, and bring happiness to yourself and anyone around you (most the time, we all have bad days) then you'll surely go to a good place after death.
