Is it true that OJ Simpson can't get into heaven until he confesses and asks forgiveness ?  Then everything will be ok  ?

    If he murdered, he will never get into heaven. He shall be purified of his sins and then redeemed. He shall arise in (probably) the unnamed resurrection, the one St. Paul compared to the stars in its glory and felicity and receive its inferior, but still glorious, reward.

    The apostle Paul, (formerly Saul of Tarsus), genuinely believed that he was cleansing the one true religion of Judaism of a malignant evil and used his knowledge of Torah to attack and kill Christian leaders until GOD confronted him, transformed him and cleansed him over decades with profound forms of suffering. Paul spoke under inspiration that there is no sinner greater than himself, calling himself the 'chief' of all sinners, (1 Timothy 1:15). He arrived into the world when he did because he might have destroyed the world had he arrived during the age of technology. He was literally using GOD's wisdom from a near perfect knowledge of Torah to fight and destroy righteousness itself. Satan himself couldn't have been more evil in human form, yet scripture says that GOD showed Saul mercy because of his ignorance of what he was doing. 

    That is similar to what it would take to free and transform a man like O.J. Simpson. Although, in his case, he is not nearly as evil and knowledgeable as Saul was, but he is also clearly not ignorant or deceived. He chooses to relish his evil acts and his ability to evade justice. His redemption story would definitely have to include a profound moment of repentance, followed by a long road of personal suffering or very intense road of profound short term suffering, not just an emotional plea made out of sudden remorse.

    15"See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled; 16that there be no immoral or godless person like Esau, who sold his own birthright for a single meal. 17For you know that even afterwards, when he desired to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought for it with tears." (Hebrews 12:15-17).

    As another user already stated, confessing sins is not what saves a person. The only way to get to heaven is through faith in Jesus Christ alone for the free gift of eternal life.

    Because we have all sinned against a perfectly holy and righteous God, we all deserve eternal separation from God in hell (Rom. 6:23). However, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross as our Substitute so we don't have to go to hell. Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave three days later (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He gives eternal life freely to anyone who simply believes in Him. No one can be saved by doing good works. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9).

    "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life" (John 6:47).

    Confessing and asking forgiveness won't get anybody saved.  It is believing in Jesus for eternal life, that saves.

    Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. 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

    Dude basically wrote a book confessing. "If I did it" And the word, "If" isn't really all that visible on the cover.
