You were told to not push (click on) the red button, but you did.
You broke the rules. And that's what we do as humans. Except when it's God's rules... the consequences are very serious.
Here's why: you were created in the image of God. That means you represent who God is. You represent the character of God. And when you violate God's law, a law that describes God's character. You represent God as a liar; a thief; a murderer; and an adulterer. For example, how many lies have you told (liar)? Have you ever taken anything that does not belong to you, even something small (thief)? Have you ever been really angry with someone (think of driving in traffic)? In Matthew 5 Jesus said that when you get unjustly angry at someone you have murdered them in your heart (murderer). Have you looked at another person with lust? Jesus also said in the Sermon on the Mount -- Matthew 5 -- that to look with lust is to commit adultery in your heart (adulterer).
You are guilty of breaking God's laws and defiling God's character. And the just penalty is eternity in hell. God is a perfect judge. A slick lawyer is not going to get you out of this one.
Your only hope is Jesus Christ. Two thousand years ago Jesus died on the cross paying the penalty you've earned for breaking God's law. You should have been on that cross. Instead Jesus was their in your place. He died... and then He proved everything scripture says is true... on the third day He rose from the dead. Jesus demonstrated in an observable way, that there is life after death. Those you trust that Jesus has paid their penalty for sin (breaking God's laws) in full, receive Jesus' free gift. They will have eternal life.
If you reject Jesus. If you reject the cross. Then you WILL pay the just penalty you have earned for disobeying the God who created you and gave you life.
OF JESUS CHRIST
The gospel is not social justice nor serving others. The gospel is love in action... Jesus Christ giving Himself so that you can be saved from the wrath of God.
Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain.
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.
After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; and last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also. - 1 Corinthians 15:1-8
