How many people die everyday?

The answer varies, but the most common answer is 146,000 people around the world die within 24 hours. Roughly 100 people die every minute.

Click on this cool site to see the world clock running.


How many of these 146,000 people who die daily, enter into eternity with the knowledge of Christ?

We need to rise up and proclaim the message of hope before its too late.

This Christmas season is a great time to proclaim Christ, the Savior who willingly and lovingly die for each of us!

I'm not wanting to piss anyone off here, but Christ can die for our sins if he's already dead...

It's beyond human comprehension but the bible tells us that Jesus died as a ransom for all of us. By the way your comment doesn't really make sense, Anon, but I know what you meant. Did you mean 'can't'?

2peter 3:9 God is not slack concerning his promise like some men count slackness but is long-suffering towards us not willing that any should perish but all come to repentance.

How many will be in Heaven ?
The Bible gives us a clue below when it says that: "few there be that find it." We might ask, how few ?
Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at [through] the strait [the narrow] gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way [road], that leadeth to destruction [leads to eternity in Hell], and many there be which go in [enter] thereat [through it]:
Mat 7:14 Because strait [small] is the gate, and narrow is the way [road], which leadeth unto life [leads to eternity in Heaven], and few there be [only a few] that find it.


Since the Bible suggests comparing a narrow way (road) with a broad way (road) to get the answer, let's quantify this example.
A narrow way or road such as a single lane country road may be only about 10 feet wide. A broad way or road such as an urban expressway with numerous lanes going both ways can easily be about 400 feet wide.

The ratio in this example is on the order of 1 in 40 (400 divided by 10). How many will be in Heaven? This example would conclude that only about 1 in 40 goes to Heaven.
Few (1 in 40) there be that find it (eternity in Heaven).

This is only about 2.5% of the world's population making it to Heaven.

Many (the other 39, or 97.5%) go to destruction (eternity in Hell).
Let's examine another example. On August 3, 1979, Howard Pittman describes (in his booklet "Placebo") his near-death experience. While the physicians were working on him, he suffered physical death.
During this death interval, he was permitted to watch 50 saints (true Christians) enter Heaven. It was explained to him that "at the same time those 50 saints died on Earth, 1950 other humans also died; or only 50 out of 2000 made it into Heaven. The other 1950 were not there."
The ratio in this example is also 1 in 40 (2000 divided by 50).
Based on this example, only about 1 in 40 is going to Heaven. (50 in 2000) That's about 2.5% (saints, true Christians) going to heaven, and 97.5% going somewhere else.

With the number going to Heaven being so few, it is obviously very dangerous to just "assume" that we are going to Heaven, or to "think" our good deeds have earned us a place in Heaven, in spite of our sins. It is because of our sins that we need a Saviour to forgive our sins and take us to Heaven. Our good works do not forgive us of our sins.
In fact the Bible verse above implies that the way is so narrow that leads to life (to eternity in Heaven), that few even find it. But the Bible also reassures us with the phrase "... seek, and ye shall find ... (Mat 7:7)."
So let's continue seeking.

Just tossin this out there and this is just my theory but if you stop telling the people about your jesus so they have no clue who your god is then perhaps they will get into your heaven by default for not knowing any better....

How about you keep your word to yourself and let people make up their own minds?

OK well ok if christ died for our "sins" how come there is still sin? i mean what was the point of it? he just became a dead pop star.. so what? who cares?

shinigami said...

well this question had nothing to do with god weather people go to hell or not if it exist or not is not the problem the problem is that you could be one of thos 146,000 or whatever person to die the next day and i agree with Anonymous

Robert: What is wrong with you? how can you even throw these bs numbers and percentages of who goes to heaven or not? did 'god' reveal them to you, maybe even jesus? get a clue!

wow - whata pile of crap. God is as believable as Santa Claus. "When I became a man, I put away childish things". That includes belief in invisible magical beings that created the universe.

This is very true so many people going to hell with out even knowing that they are going there with no return forever in the lake of fire. And if you reading this and still don't believe it doesn't change anything if you don't except Christ as your savior you will be separated from God forever and will be in hell. So now is the time to make your decision It's only your decision not your friend or wife only yours...

I am not a bible-thumping revivalist, but I have to say that I am grateful that God sent his son to die for our sins, and that through him I might have everlasting life. I feel very blessed and I have lived with this feeling for a long time. I am a sinner, and I admit it, but I know that there is hope. More to the topic, WOW! That's a lot of dead people. The flesh is weak, get right with the Lord now. Whatever your reason for not, forget it.

Is everyone insane.do you people really believe that there is some magical place waiting for you when you die..Jesus died for our sins.I laugh at people who believe that mess.I do believe Jesus may have existed but I really doubt a heaven and hell exist...follow me on this one. The world is millions of years old and humans have been on it for hundreds of thousands of years,but Jesus existed two thousand years ago.so tell me where people who existed before Jesus went when they died...NOWHERE! It just doesn't make sense to me.I tried believing in it for too long now and I'm not afraid to say I don't believe.my two cents...
