Can Someone Go To Heaven Without Restitution? by Legendguy(m): 9:10am On Jul 11
I have heard lots of people saying that restitution doesn't matter as far as you have giving your life to Christ. I have seen people that restituted the wrong things they did in the past, like some christians that took their WAEC results back to WAEC because they engaged in exam malpractice.
Is it guaranteed for a person, for instance that involves in stealing and looting government or company money to buy properties and build houses and still claiming born again, even though has has genuinely repented and when such person dies can he still go to heaven without restituting his stolen wealth?

Heaven is with you (if you do not know that is a different thing) so no one is going there.

It is the Kingdom of God that we are waiting for ("Thy kingdom Come, Thy Will be done"wink

Restitution actually belongs to the Old Covenant - see Ezekiel 33 vs 10 - 20, and an example of this is found in the story of Zaccheus who returned some of the money had taken from the people. He was saved according to Ezekiel 33 but not given Heaven. undecided

However,In the New Covenant, Jesus Christ does not ask for restitution from those who will become His followers. Instead, He asks that they sell or give everything away to the poor in order to become worthy of Him - Matthew 16 vs 24 and Matthew 19 where the story of the rich young man is told. undecided

Hi there.

Only those who believe in Jesus Christ will be with God in eternity. Only those who don't believe in Him will be in the Lake of Fire. All sins have been accounted for in the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ. See John 3:16,18.

The one command is that you give up everything you have to those who dont have it, others follow. Only those who do as Jesus Christ commands will enter in to His Heaven. undecided

Read the Gospels to learn the teachings and comandments/rules of Jesus Christ, God's New Covenant Law of the Kingdom of God. undecided

Do you intend to question Jesus Christ?

"Today, you'll be WITH ME in Paradise!" was what Jesus told him

Jesus Christ has nothing to do with this. You claimed the man was born-again, so be willing to stand by your own claim. undecided

So, was Jesus Christ in Heaven, or Hell, on that very same day, or the day after that or even the week after that? undecided
