If you don't know who David Bowie was, he was an icon of popular culture. He was a great success by the world's standards, but as an unregenerate person he helped to promote the sin of homosexuality and bisexuality.
David Bowie once described himself as “not quite an atheist.” Sadly, he is now dead and knows without a doubt that God exists and what happens to those who die in their sins. I really hope that he repented and trusted in Jesus Christ before he died because after death is too late. (See: A Second Chance After Death?)
Similar to what David Bowie said, the famous atheist Carl Sagan said,"I don't know where I'm going. But I'm on my way." May I say to you that if you don't know where you're going when you die, then you're not going to Heaven. It's as simple as that.
The true born again Christian knows with 100% assurance where he/she is going when he/she dies -- to Heaven!
It's not prideful or arrogant to make a statement like that. Eternal life with God in Heaven is a guarantee for the born again believer in Christ. Christianity is a "know so" faith, not a "hope so" faith.
If your answer to the question "If you were to die today would you go to heaven?" is "I hope so" then may I say to you, you're not going.
"Why?" you ask. Because your answer to the question reveals that you are depending on sincerity (hoping that you are sincere enough) and/or your own goodness (hoping that your good deeds will outweigh your bad deeds) to get to Heaven and you are not trusting in Jesus' completed sacrifice for sins and finished work on the cross.
To quote my former pastor: "If your plan for getting to heaven doesn't have everything to do with Jesus and nothing to do with yourself, you're not going!"

David Bowie is being characterized as the greatest cultural leader in England's modern history. He was ahead of the Beetles, Elton John, and others as he tried to get out in front of the sexual revolution. He walked the delicate line between decadence and nihilism as well, and then he tipped over.

How do you make your mark, and what makes for a great life, as defined by modern humanists?
