The Muslim "faith", the Buddhist "faith" are all a dead end and will only get you a one-way ticket to hell.
Jesus is the ONLY one who can give eternal life and it is a gift.
You can't "earn" it.
Being "good" is not the way, saying Hail Mary is not the way.
It is ONLY through the blood of Christ and what HE did on the cross by dying for mankind's sins.
And if you don't want to worship Jesus here on earth then why would you want to worship Him for eternity in Heaven?
So is it "worth the effort"?
Let us see...
Eternity in hell.... or eternity with God?
The choice is yours!!!

Im not a religious minded person and believe if someone finds comfort in a belief of a higher all seeing "god" then good for them,but over many years the churches of the world have got very rich from people who believe that living in accordance to gods "rules" means that they will "go" to heaven .So what makes people think this way?I think a very clever book which has been rewritten numerous times in many languages is behind it ,You guessed it the bible,Has anyone else noticed the similarities between the christian faith and the muslim faith?If as the bible says jesus was born in bethleham wouldnt he have been dark skinned possibly?I wonder what the popes view on jesuses colour is?
I have found an interest film on religion which im sure has been posted before but im posting again anyway to try and get other view points ,thanks for your time in reading this .
