What happens if a hardcore sinner (who does all kinds of very sinful things his whole life) only accepts Jesus Christ as his personal savior when he's already about to die on his deathbed?!? Will Jesus still accept him in heaven? This is somewhat similar to the crucifixion story, about the thief. 42Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.[f]" 43Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise." This sounds stupid, but what if my non-believing relatives and friends who are of other religions continue sinning all throughout their lifetime, worshipping other false gods, then when they're about to die, just accepts Jesus that very second???
