Misconceptions
about how to get to heaven

    A lot of people hear second-hand about what God says in the Bible about how to go to heaven without really hearing the truth. Listed here are some of the more common beliefs of what is necessary to go to heaven - all incorrect.

1. Merely believe in God.
 

"You believe that there is one God? Good! Even the demons believe that - and shudder."  James 2:19

2. Hope your good works outweigh your bad works in the end.

"All our righteous acts are like filthy rags."  Isaiah 64:6

3. Keep the law.

"A man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ."  Galatians 2:16

4. Go to church.

    Even the Antichrist in the last days will be attending church (II Thessalonians 2:4), though it will not save him from hell.


5. Lastly, some people just never address the question and do nothing. This is probably the most seductive way to miss heaven.
 

"He who believes in the Son is not condemned, but he who does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in God's one and only Son."  John 3:18
