What matters to Tony Curtis today?

When someone of great worldly fame dies, I cannot help but wonder if they are in heaven or hell.

What matters to Tony Curtis today? Worldy fame? Great wealth? Acting ability?
No.  The only thing that matters to Tony Curtis today is his relationship with Jesus Christ.  Did he ever come to a place in life where he realized he was a sinner who did not deserve heaven?  Did he ever understand that Jesus Christ gave Himself on the cross to pay for Tony’s sins?  Did he ever call out to Christ to save his eternal soul from hell?

I hope that he did, but if not, it is forever too late for Mr Curtis.  If you are reading this, it is not too late for you.  

You must understand that none of us are good enough to go to Heaven on our own merit. Because we are sinners, no matter how much good we do, we always fall short.
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: (Romans 3:10)
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)


Realize the penalty for sin is an eternity in hell.
For the wages of sin is death... (Romans 6:23a)
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Rev 20:14)

Believe Christ died for you.
Christ showed His great love for us when He died on the cross to pay our sin debt.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
Jesus, who never sinned, took our sin on himself, that we might be saved.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Cor 5:21)


You need to trust Christ alone as your Saviour.
...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23b)
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)
For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Cor 3:11)
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)

Everlasting life is a gift purchased by the blood of Jesus and offered freely to those who call upon Him by faith.
Will you trust Christ alone as your personal Saviour? Will you "believe" on Christ? Will you simply call on Jesus, trusting Him alone, to save you from Hell and take you to Heaven when you die? If you will, God promises that you shall be saved.

Will you believe God? If so, earnestly, sincerely pray this simple prayer, trusting Christ:
Dear Jesus, I know I’m a sinner, and I cannot save myself. Please forgive my sins, come into my heart and save my soul from Hell. I’m trusting you alone to take me to Heaven when I die. Thank you for saving me, Jesus. Amen.
Please receive Christ as your Saviour today. Don’t delay. We’re not guaranteed a tomorrow.

Wonderful post Bro. Sam. I was reading this story today and I felt so sorry for him. How sad to live a life of struggle and pain just to die and live in the ultimate pain.
So sad that he realized it too late!

BTW, my friend told me that my sickness sounded a little like the flu, hmmm...

Good post about how we all get to heaven the same way - even the rich and famous! Great plan of salvation explained. Hope it reaches someone for Him. Tori told me about your blog. Thanks for your servant's heart.
