    God will not lower or change His standard as regards holiness, what about these blemishes around us?

    He who succeeds to pass through the fire and storm unscatched is seen as great victor in heaven. Two converts once lived. One lived among thieves, harlots and swindlers, while the other lived in a manse. Both of them died and made it to heaven. Tell me if scores were awarded, who will take the highest score?

    Mat 5:20 "For I say to you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven."

    2 Cor 5:21 "He [God] made Him [Jesus] who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him [Jesus]."

    Rom 7:15-8:1 tell us we will struggle with sin while we live in our mortal bodies, but in Christ, our sin is erased; we are made holy in Him.  There is no other way.  In Christ, we do not face condemnation, but are passed from death to life ~ now in spirit through the moment we take our last breath; then, for eternity...where there will be no more sin.

    First of all, Humans have set the standards of what he thinks God should have because in the bible there are two sets.  The first one is merciful and the second is vengeful. The other one is that God and the Universal Laws don't change but there is a thing called Unconditional Love.  Most Christians can't get a grasp of what that truly means.  They put all kinds of stipulations and rules that others should live by and that is what they think Unconditional Love is.  What it really means is told to us by Jesus in the bible and it is simply what you sow you shall reap and do unto others as you would have them to unto you.  If you truly love someone you will get that back in return as sotoo is the Universe.  We all have things to learn and in so doing we all have things come back to us.  God allows for our learning and therefore doesn't impose anything on us that we wouldn't put on ourelves.  I wrote a hub that you may want to take a look at:  http://hubpages.com/hub/What-I-learned-When-I-Went-Home

    The peril of taking God for granted may put many in the lake of fire, even though God did not wish anyone to go there, at the same time He will NOT lower His standard of holiness, despite the grace in Jesus CHRIST

    Ultimately I think most Christians deep down don't know if they'll make it to heaven.

    The path is narrow and the standard is really high.  It appears that most people aren't going to make it to heaven.

    I believe that many Christians who believe in grace still don't know whether they will go to heaven or not.

    The teaching on grace and heaven and hell has been so unbalanced that believers don't know what to really believe.

    I might make it; maybe God will let me in.
