Sins are forgiven by the person believing in Jesus. That easy.
Catholicism leads to hell, because of its false gospel. Catholicism and orthodox lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire, since they both teach works for salvation, which leads to hell (Acts 15:1, Galatians 1:6-9).
You need to believe in JESUS without works, to get into heaven (Romans 4:5).
Catholicism and orthodox are deceptions from satan to get you into hell. Catholicism and orthodox are not Christian. Jesus is not in catholicism or orthodox. Reading the Bible proves to us that catholicism and orthodox are full of lies.. Catholicism and orthodox teach works for salvation, which leads to eternal torment in the lake of fire (Galatians 1:6-9). And "purgatory" doesn't exist. Every "pope" is a false prophet of satan. Catholicism and orthodox didn't even exist for over 300 years after the Bible was complete and compiled. So avoid catholicism and orthodox, get away from them both
The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.
The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death
