Can 'being good' get me into Heaven?


I've always heard "Be good and you'll get this." Or "Be good and you can have that." I've even heard that I must be good to go to heaven. Is this how we can enter heaven after death?

    Beautiful! And purity of intent will include a removal of self-concern. It will include loving others as yourself and wishing for them everything that they desire. When you achieve this, turning the other cheek becomes effortless

    No human being, sinful as we are, can reach this state of perfection in this life. Only after we "shuffle off this mortal coil" will regenerate believers attain heaven. We are only positionally sanctified now. Paul tells us to press toward the goal.

    So Lady you have come to your own conclusions about salvation from only a very few verses from the Bible. I am afraid you are missing the entire point because you refuse to believe the rest of the Bible that does not support your illusions.
