Will you go to heaven when you die?

If you believe in god to begin with, there is the big question; will you go to heaven when you die?

One common mistake that people make is they think that is being good that will get them into heaven.

Believe it or not there are many people who think that they are getting I to heaven but aren’t. One common mistake that people make is they think that is being good that will get them into heaven. That is not the case. In fact when in the book of Mathew when Jesus gave his sermon on the mount, he said that on judgment day, many people will come to god and say, wasn’t I a good person? I went to church, gave to charities and did other good things. God will say to those people, I never knew you.

The first step to getting into heaven is realizing that you are a sinner. The book of romans says that no one is a good person, not one. We have all broken gods laws. If you’re not a sinner, then you don’t need a savior. If you’re not a sinner then Jesus didn’t die for you. It is hard to admit being wrong, but I would be much harder spend an eternity in hell.

After admitting that you are a sinner, you ask God for forgiveness.

After admitting that you are a sinner, you ask God for forgiveness. Another thing that the book of romans says is that if someone has something against you, you need ask them for forgiveness before you ask God for forgiveness. You can’t just go ruin someone’s life and then expect God to forgive you.

Many people also don’t fully realize what Jesus went through se we could be saved.

Many people also don’t fully realize what Jesus went through se we could be saved. Jesus was crucified by the romans. The romans were masters at torture. They studied it for a long time. They had many horrifying ways of torturing people. There worst way of torturing people was crucifixion. First he has beaten for hours with a whip that had spikes that tore his flesh. Then they put a crown of thorns on his head.  They then made him carry the cross which was about the size of a telephone pole a long way. Then they nailed him to the cross with nails the size of railroad spikes. After he died they poked him to make sure he was dead and just water came out, because they beat every drop of blood out of him. He then rose from the dead. Before he did this, people had to sacrifice things like animals in order to be saved. because of this, now people don’t have to do that anymore.

Conclusion

Many people think that it is being good that gets them into heaven. It is actually admitting that you are a sinner and asking God to for give you that gets you into heaven. People use to have to sacrifice animals and other things in order to be forgiven. Thanks to all Jesus went through people no longer have to do that.
