Are you going to heaven?
I know that is a deep and challenging question. We believe it’s important to ask you right up front because we also believe it’s probably THE SINGLE MOST important question you must answer for yourself and unfortunately, nobody can answer it for you.
As fellow humans, imperfect in our own lives, we cannot judge the destination of YOUR soul. That matter is between you and God. Most people will answer the question of “Are you going to heaven?” in one or more of the following ways.
I. THE “GOOD” PERSON DEFENSE.
You say: “Because I think I’m a good person.”
God says: Okay, well let’s test that out and see if you are correct. I’m going to ask you some simple questions. Have you ever stolen anything? (Even the smallest, most inconsequential thing like a piece of bubble gum, for example?) Have you ever lied? Have you ever taken the Lord’s name in vain?
Jesus says in Luke 18:19, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.” So according to Jesus, everybody is disqualified from truly being “good” except for God.
We say: that’s only 3 of the 10 commandments. How are you doing so far?
You say: “I think If God were to weigh all the good things I’ve ever done in my life against all the bad things I’ve ever done in my life, I think God would see that my good outweighs my bad.”
According to the Bible, that’s not how God’s courtroom works.
f you’re guilty of one you’ve broken them all. (James 2:10) God is also a perfect judge who judges perfectly. If God were to judge you right now, would you be guilty or innocent? Would heaven or hell be your sentence?
II. THE BELIEVE IN GOD RESPONSE.
“But I believe in God.” Really? That’s good.
