Since the Bible says that you will die someday, and since the Bible says that you as a sinner are condemned to die eternally in Hell,
is there any hope?
"God is love" says I John 4:8, and so does not offer condemnation without offering hope. There is hope. In fact, there is a confidence in your eternity that can be assured. 1 John 5:13 says "These things have I written unto you... that ye may know that ye have eternal life..." There is a way to know that you can go to heaven instead of Hell.
But how can anyone have eternal life if we are all sinners?
One thing needs to happen if you are going to get into heaven: you must be declared innocent. Since that is not possible for you, since you have already broken God's Laws, you must look to someone else for your innocence.
You cannot look to yourself
You are a condemned sinner who can do nothing to save or clear yourself. Even your good things are tainted by your sin. The Bible says that even your prayer to God is ugly to Him: Proverbs 28:9: "He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination."
You cannot look to another man or woman
Every other person on the face of this earth is also contaminated by his or her own sin, and cannot help you, let alone themselves. Romans 3:10 says "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one." No one, not even a religious person, pastor, or priest, can pronounce you clean and innocent. That is God's prerogative, and He hasn't given that right to any man or church.
You must look to God alone
God has provided a way for you to be declared innocent and sinless in His sight. Long before He sent the answer, He told the answer to us. He said in Isaiah 53:5-6: "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." Of whom are these verses speaking?
These verses are speaking of Jesus Christ
