The majority of humanity believes that some amount of good works is sufficient to gain them entrance into heaven. Let's ask a few questions to see if God will consider you "good enough" to go to heaven. Be honest with yourself and before God as you answer these questions.
1.Have you ever told a lie? The Ninth of the Ten Commandments is "You shall not lie". Telling just one lie, according to God's standards, makes you a "liar". In Revelation 21:8, God says, "...all liars, shall have their part in the lake of fire..."
2.Have you ever stolen anything (no matter how small)? The Eighth of the Ten Commandments is "You shall not steal." Stealing just one thing (regardless of it's size or monetary value), according to God's standards, makes you a "thief." In I Corinthians 6:10, God says, "No thieves...shall inherit the kingdom of God."
3. Have you ever looked at someone and had lustful thoughts? The Seventh of the Ten Commandments is "You shall not commit adultery." If you've ever looked at another person with lustful thoughts, according to God's standards, that makes you an "adulterer." Jesus said, "You have heard it said, You shall not commit adultery: But I say to you, that whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart." (Matthew 5:28) In 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, God says that no adulterers "...shall inherit the kingdom of God."
4. Have you ever used "God," "Jesus," or "Christ," as a curse word? (Example: "Oh my G-d!") The Third of the Ten Commandments is "You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain." If you've ever used the name "God," "Jesus," or "Christ" as a curse word, what you've done is take the name of the God who gave you life, and you've used it as if it were a "four-letter" filth word to express disgust. That offense is called "blasphemy," and according to God's standards, you are a "blasphemer." In Leviticus 24:16 , God says, "he that blasphemes the name of the LORD, shall surely be put to death..."
