Are you going to Heaven when you die?


What do you think?  Do you believe you know the answer?  53% of the people here in America, where I live, believe one needs to be basically good to get there.  How about you?  Do you feel the same way?


I’m astonished how many millions of otherwise seemingly intelligent people are willing to risk their eternal destiny upon less evidence than they would require for buying a car or even a low-carb food item -- yet the belief of so many, particularly in the area of religion, has no rational or factual foundation.


We are eternal beings who will spend eternity somewhere. But where will it be? There is no more important question to be faced -- and answered.


The uncertainty of life and the inevitability of death are two of the most basic elements of human existence. Logically, then, what may lie after death deserves at least some serious attention and planning before it may be forever too late. And it is only reasonable that prior to that awesome moment of death, which overtakes all in its own time and without discrimination, one needs to be absolutely certain what death will bring and exactly why.


ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN? Of course, because nothing less will do.  Forever is a long time to be wrong.  Regardless of one’s religious belief or lack of it, death puts its terminating stamp upon every earthly passion, position, possession, and ambition. There is a finality to death that shouts, "Too late! Too late!"


Inasmuch as death could come knocking at any time, regardless of one’s age, health, or expectations, there is great urgency in knowing with absolute certainty what lies beyond death’s door. No matter how young we may be or how healthy we may seem, that dread event draws steadily and inexorably closer for each one of us--and often comes as an unwelcome surprise.


In twenty years, today's price of gas will probably mean little to you. But it will matter much whether your soul is in heaven or hell.


When the cold winds are whistling over your grave, or the warm sun resting on it--what will it matter whether housing sold badly or well on the market?


Time is fading into eternity whether we realize it or not. Our belief or lack of belief in this truth does not alter or change reality.


Life and death are a prevalent part of life. It is something we learn from a very early age. As much as we don't like to think about it, we can't help but to see it. Don’t you see your life passing?


Time is passing quicker than sand through an hourglass.  Our lives are here and then they are gone. Not only is time passing, but it's passing rapidly.  This serious truth is not a reality to most. The life we now live will come to an end. We are all part of the ultimate statistic, 100% of us are going to die …someday.  It could be today.


"For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away." (James 4:14)


Our lives are coming to an end, but not only our lives but all of time. Our priorities change when we come to this realization. The values of the man on his death bed quickly change from the values he had in his health. Because our lives will one day be over it makes sense we should plan for the future. Doesn’t it?


Almost everyone thinks they are a good person...


But the question you should be asking is, "Am I good enough to go to Heaven?"
