THE BOOK OF LIFE
He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
If you die and have not asked Jesus to forgive your sins
then your name is not written in the book of life
you will now live for eternity in flames
Everyone has free will to choose to believe or not
