When I was in the Navy at the end of the Korean War, one of my shipmates said, “Hansen, you are going to hell.” He explained how I was separated from God by my sins and that I needed to confess and forsake my sins and to ask Jesus to forgive me of my sins and to come into my life as my Savior.
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved. —Acts 4:12
