Good people don’t go to heaven, bad people do

Lot’s of good people believe that the way you get to heaven is by being good. After all, God is a good God and heaven is a good place and going to heaven will be a good thing–if we’re good.

The problem is: that’s not true.

Good people don’t go to heaven.  Bad people do.

Bad people who have done bad things WHO HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN go to heaven.

And there’s only ONE WAY to be forgiven–to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. And believe that when He died on the cross, who we WERE died with Him. And we became new creatures in Christ. Born again. From above.

That’s the only way we get to heaven.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
