Not everyone in the world agrees.

Anonymous I tried to return to the Lord, but circumstances were as though the Lord wasn't going to allow that yet. He wanted to teach me something.
The power of imprinting religion on a hapless dependent child is truly tragic. It prevents one from taking responsibility for themselves, instead blaming some invisible intangible agent that becomes a virtual self-imposed dictator of their entire lives.

Why? Are you 100% sure that a god exists? Many people are not convinced. Many people are also not convinced that any heaven exists. How do you know that they are not just things that people in the past made up?
If you believe God you believe in Heaven and Hell. The Bible is God's Word to us. It is His instructions. God doesn't lie.

"Thou shalt not kill." Exodus 20:13

God commanded this with His fingers crossed behind His back, because there are loads of exceptions that follow in the text.

Deuteronomy 13:6-10 , God says,"6 If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods”... 9 You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. 10 Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the Lord your God.

And God killed Onan for not fully copulating with his brother's widow. Genesis 38:9-10 ,
... whenever he slept with his brother’s wife, he spilled his semen on the ground to keep from providing offspring for his brother. 10 What he did was wicked in the Lord’s sight; so the Lord put him to death also.

But then in Leviticus 20:21, God commands: "And if a man shall take his brother's wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother's nakedness;

Leviticus 20:10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
God has revealed Himself in many different ways to man. It's completely wrong to think that man created God. Men have an innate longing to know God. Jesus Christ IS God. Your logic is backward on these things.

That is true. So there is Zeus, Athena, Mercury, Isis, Vishu, Baal, Gilgamesh, Thor, Trentren Vilu, Mahuika, Tlaloc, Ganesha and thousands of others whose names have mostly been lost to history. Every one of their worshipers insisted that their gods were the true gods and all others were false gods. Every religion and sect insists that theirs is the "true" religion. Every one has their unique legends and practices. Many have priesthoods, rituals and places of worship. Wiki has an amazing list of the gods and godesses that we know about because they happened to have followers during recorded human history. You are no different than any of the others in taking your family's (or culture's) belief systems and creeds as being the only "true" one, all the others being "false".
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Ah, but I know that my God is the only true god because my Holy Book tells me he is. And I know that every word in my Holy Book is true because my Holy Book tells me it is. So that proves that my religion is true and every other one is false.
