15. Do you believe Jesus ascended to heaven?

Fred Costello: "Yes."

16. Do you believe Jesus will return someday?

Fred Costello: "Yes."

17. By what criterion do you believe people go to heaven?

Fred Costello: "Nobody lives a perfect life (except Jesus) and thus we are all sinners. Since God can’t be in the presence of sin, we can’t live a life good enough to get to heaven. So we must accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior (because He died for my/our sins) and thus we are saved by His Grace and will live with Him in heaven solely because He loved us enough to take on our sin."

18. By what criterion do you believe people go to hell?

Fred Costello: "Blasphemy/rejection of God."

19. How many books of the Bible do you believe to be inspired by God and without error?

Fred Costello: "All."

20. The beliefs of which well-known Christian leader alive today resemble your beliefs?

Fred Costello: "I’m not sure. It is dangerous to align with/follow a Christian leader ... but the question seems to realize we follow Jesus and not a pastor. So, as to which well-known Christian leader has beliefs that resemble mine, I suspect Pastor Mike Hayes of the Center for National Renewal (CNR), Churches in Covenant, Int’l, would be a likely candidate. My wife and I attended the dedication of the CNR in Washington, DC because we believe the Church (Body of Christ) must be involved in the political arena and we try to support pastors who believe we must be IN the world but not OF it."
