Do Good people go to Heaven?
What will it be like?
Heaven is God's home. It's the place where he lives. It's huge and rich and lavishly beautiful and there's plenty of room for everyone - and yes, everyone who gets through the pearly gates is given their own mansion. And that's just for starters.
Can anybody go? How do I know I will get there? Is there a way to be sure?
Well, yes there is a way to be sure! Of course, there is a dress code, and it's polite to take a gift for the host, but to be sure you will get past those pearly gates you must have an invitation.
This little book explains how you can gain your golden invitation and be guaranteed entry into the perfection of Heaven.
How good do I have to be?
We hear it all the time, “Sure, I’m going to Heaven. I’m a good person.” At funerals it is often said, ‘he lived a good life!’ or ‘she was a good person!’ or ‘only the good die young!’
Being good is equated with being welcomed into Heaven after we die. But is that true, or is it a widely held assumption? Do good people automatically go to Heaven?
Will you go to Heaven?
There are times when this question hovers over our minds. Mostly we brush it aside, telling ourselves we'll think about it later. But what if there is no later?
In times of major epidemics, sudden disasters or war, there is no later. Death stares us in the face and challenges us to think about our eternal destination. Surely it will be Heaven!
Generally speaking, most people believe those who are regarded as ‘evil’ will not be welcome in Heaven, but 'good' people will be welcomed with a smile.
But then, things begin to get a little fuzzy. How 'good' is good enough? Does it matter if you're bad sometimes? Will being a nice person be enough? How can you know?
Are there any rules for entry to Heaven?
The undeniable truth is, Heaven belongs to God. It is his home - his eternal dwelling place. We can’t just land on his doorstep and tell him we’re moving in. That’s just plain rude! We have to knock on his door and wait to be invited in.
The thing is, he has a dress code. He also has entry rules, and no one is allowed in unless they meet the standards God himself sets.
Since God decides who will enter into Heaven and who will not qualify for entry, it would seem wise to look up his requirements for entry to Heaven, if that’s where we want to go.
Being ‘good’ is not one of his rules!
For most, it may come as a shock to discover being ‘good’ is not one of God’s requirements, and never has been! In fact, according to Scripture, being good is more likely to keep a person out of Heaven than to grant them entry. The Bible tells us Adam and Eve chose to live by standards of both ‘good’ and ‘evil’, and that decision disqualified them from being allowed to enter Heaven.
The ‘bad apple’ which was deadly to Adam and Eve had two sides. It had a ‘good’ side as well as an ‘evil’ side. On bite from either side - good or evil - was deadly!
So, does that mean being good is actually as deadly as being evil? Yes, it does! Does that mean being ‘good’ can actually keep us out of Heaven? Yes it does!
Then how does anyone get to Heaven?
How would you feel if you arrived at the most important 'invitation only' party of your life without a gift, dressed in the wrong clothes and with no invitation?
Wanting to go to Heaven, will not be enough. Being good, will not be enough. What will be important to God when we stand on his doorstep, is how we are dressed, the gifts we have brought with us and most importantly, our personal invitation.
So, what are the right clothes, the right gifts, and how do we gain a personal invitation?
This is what this little book reveals...
If you like what you have read, could you leave a short one or two word review on Amazon? Something like, "Interesting" or "Good read" or "Different!"
I'm asking because Amazon restricts the viewing audience unless the book is getting reviews and I would like to get free Christian information out there for as many as possible to view.
Thank you for helping spread the Gospel. Be blessed!
