I've heard people say that all I have to do to get to heaven is to believe in Jesus. Well, I think I believe in Jesus, but down inside I'm not at all sure I'll go to heaven when I die. In fact, I kind of doubt if I will. What am I missing?
What you've heard is right: All we have to do to get into heaven is to believe in Jesus. Jesus Himself said, "Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life" (John 3:36). But what does it mean to "believe" in Jesus?
My neighbor says he believes in God's judgment, but that it occurs while we are on earth, not after we die. In other words, if we do something wrong God makes us pay for it now, not later. He also believes that everyone will go to heaven, since they already will have paid for their sins while they were alive. This isn't what the Bible says, is it?
When we get to heaven, will we know what's happening on earth? If so, how can we be happy? There's so much misery in the world that I'd think it would just make us sad.
The Bible doesn't answer all our questions about heaven - and we don't know exactly how much knowledge those in heaven have about what happens here.
What does God look like? I know He's supposed to be a spirit and all that, but doesn't the Bible also say that we will see Him when we get to heaven?
In heaven, the Bible says, God's servants "fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever" (Revelation 4:10).
Do you believe that we'll be reunited with our loved ones when we get to heaven? I deeply hope we will be, but with all the millions and millions of people up there, how will we ever find them? Maybe I shouldn't worry about this but I do.
Yes, I firmly believe we will be reunited with those who have died in Christ and entered heaven before us.
Why should I believe in Jesus and give up my lifestyle right now, if God will forgive me anyway whenever I ask Him? Why not wait until I'm about ready to die? I like the way I'm living and I don't want to give it up, although I admit I'd like to go to heaven when I die.
Don't be deceived; God's forgiveness isn't something you can take for granted.
How can we be happy in heaven if it's going to have people in it that we don't necessarily like? There are several people in our church, for example, who are really hard to get along with, and frankly I can't imagine being around them for eternity.
Heaven, the Bible says, will be a place of supreme happiness - and I can assure you that you don't need to worry about this problem.
How good do we have to be in order to get into heaven? I know we have to have faith in Jesus, and I do, but surely God won't let me into heaven unless I also try my best to be a good person, will He?
Even one sin - just one - would be enough to keep you out of heaven. This is why we need Christ, for when He died on the cross He became the final and complete sacrifice for all our sins.
I'm in prison, and everyone here is talking about an inmate who claimed he found God just a week before he died of cancer. How could he live like the devil most of his life but still get into heaven? He didn't deserve to be saved.
If God only let people into heaven who deserved to go there - then heaven would be empty!
I'm a cancer survivor (for which I thank God), but to be honest I live in constant fear that the disease will return. My daughter tells me I need to quit worrying so much about this, but I just can't help it. Maybe you have some suggestions.
Just as God was with you during your past struggles with cancer, so He will be with you in the future - no matter what happens.
