"You Can Know For Sure 100% You Will Go To Heaven"

The above-titled pamphlet for Cornerstone Baptist Church contains absolutely nothing about morality. In fact:
"God has a gift for all sinner, and it is ABSOLUTELY FREE!


Thus is the question answered:
SO HOW CAN YOU KNOW 100% SURE THAT YOU WILL GO TO HEAVEN?

First, admit you are a sinner.
Second, realize that without Christ, you are doomed to Hell.
Third, realize that God gave His Son to die in your place.

BY SIMPLE FAITH, BELIEVE AND RECEIVE GOD'S SON AS PAYMENT FOR YOUR SIN.


Evidently, faction loyalty is payment for whatever misdeeds one has committed and ever will commit.

Advert tag lines on the back page:

Bible Preaching
Family Oriented
Old Fashioned Values


That last word is the only reference to morals (besides the obligatory "we are all sinners, every one" lines) in the whole pamphlet. And, of course, this is very likely a cultural code phrase for the church's stance on issues like abortion, gay rights and so on.

And we complain about madrassas in Pakistan.
