I gave him the good news of Christ taking his hell punishment for him. He agreed that unless he placed his faith in Him, he would go to hell. But him making the step of accepting God's gift was beyond him.

I took him through the law, and it revealed how bad he really was. After this, he didn’t think he could ever make it to heaven. Using Easter, I managed to show him how Christ took his hell punishment for him. He came to understand that he had to accept this as a gift in order to go to heaven.
I asked him if his feelings defied logic and science, which one would he go for? He said feelings, every time. I asked him if he had lied, stolen, used foul language. He said yes, so I asked him how the creator of the universe would feel about that. He said he wouldn't have to give account, just make up for the bad things and hopefully what goes around comes around. I shook his hand, and said I hoped that worked out for him on Judgement Day (a line I stole from one of the online evangelism team).
The Mother Theresa’s of this world can’t make it because they aren’t totally perfect. The Adolf Hitler’s of this world can’t make it, in fact they don’t even try to be perfect. And we can’t make it either, because as hard as we try, we fail to be perfect as well.
