How To Get To Heaven

Don't change first... Come as you are first:

Glowing transparent cyan blue heart that says 'The gospel is the good news!'

All humans do evil.
We're sinners.
Everyone's undeserving.

  • "Nobody on earth's always good and never sins." (Ecclesiastes 7:20)

  • "For everyone's sinned and falls short of God's glory." (Romans 3:23)

  • "Everyone's turned away; all have become useless. Nobody does good, not even one.” (Psalm 53:3)

Heaven's a free gift.
Donations can't earn it.
Doing good won't save you.

  • "God saved you by grace when you believed. You can't take credit for this; it's the gift of God." (Ephesians 2:9)

  • "Peter replied: 'May your money be destroyed with you for thinking God's gift can be bought with money.' " (Acts 8:20)

  • "But we believe through the undeserved grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we'll be saved, just as they are." (Acts 15:11)

The gospel's the good news.
The gospel: Jesus died (a sacrifice paying sin penalty), got buried, and was risen.
He died in our place.

  • "He was handed over to die for our sins, and was raised to make us right with God." (Romans 4:25)

  • "What's most important I received and delivered to you: Christ died for our sins, as the Scriptures said; that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures:" (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

  • "At just the right time, when we were still helpless, Christ died for the ungodly." (Romans 5:6)

Jesus died, paying our sin penalty.

Only trust the good news alone for Heaven.
False gospels are trusting other things for Heaven, which doesn't save.

  • "Jesus answered: 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.' " (John 14:6)

  • "Salvation's in nobody else: God hasn't given another name under Heaven by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)

  • "That's why I said you'll die in your sins: unless you believe that I Am, you'll die in your sins." (John 8:24)

Heaven isn't accepted by trusting Jesus died for sin, got buried, and was risen plus trusting good deeds... that's a false gospel.

Doing/saying these won't earn Heaven:

  • Praying.

  • Water baptism.

  • Donations/tithing.

  • Feeling sorry for sin.

  • Letting go of past sin.

  • Believe the Bible's true.

  • Giving your life to God.

  • Confessing "Jesus is Lord."

  • Inviting Jesus into your heart/life.

  • Planning to follow Jesus at any cost.

  • Turning from sin or trying not to sin.

  • Confessing sin, "mortal sins," or "deadly sins."

  • Stopping certain sins, "mortal sins," or "deadly sins."

  • Sharing your trust/faith/belief in Jesus without denying it.

Accepting the good news of Jesus Christ is trust/faith/belief in only the gospel alone.
