    From my understanding...
    1. By believing in Jesus Christ as your Lord/substitute for sin...Romans 10:9
    2. No
    3. Only God knows
    4. Ditto
    5. ?
    6. The book of life is, as far as I know, a metaphor, meaning those who have repented of their sins and believed on the Lord Jesus Christ.
    To repent, accept J.C.,be born again, involves trusting Him to teach/lead you in life from that point on. Once you are truly a son of God, you are always a son/daughter. God's promise is irrevocable according to His Word.
    To follow after Christ, one must "count the cost". That is, He becomes Master of our lives.

    2)that costs twice as much as 1)
    3) max is 665, you know who the next one would be.
    4) my guess an entire person is covered by each name, I maybe wrong though, some people really want to forget TOE.
    5) cotten balls stuffed into ears works fairly well
    6) no
