Many folk I speak with have decided in their own mind that when they die their spirit will go to Heaven. They go to church they say or they were brought up as Catholics, Christened when very young because their parents took them along to a church for the ceremony or they deserve to go because they live good lives and are helpful to others. Whatever reasons they think qualify them for a place in Heaven essentially there is only one way……..God says so………..read this…….
[ Is accepting Jesus the only way for people to get to heaven? (John 14:6)
Yes. The Bible clearly identifies Jesus as the only means of salvation (Jn 14:6; Acts 4:12; Php 2:9–11). Believing in Jesus and his unique work (Acts 2:37–39; 16:31; Rom 10:9) is the only way to gain access to God’s forgiveness. No number of good deeds can earn a person an eternal reward. No other faith system leads people to the one true God. Some people chafe at such an exclusive stance, but the words of Jesus and the apostles leave no other option (Acts 4:12; 1 Tim 2:5).
