How Good Are You?

Are you good enough for heaven?
How good do you have to be?
Go to
and take the test to see!

How good do you have to be to go to heaven? You would have to be absolutely perfect and without any sin. Do you fit that category? How would you score yourself on keeping the 10 Commandments? Have you ever told a lie, lusted, wanted something badly that you don't have, taken something that was not yours (even downloading things from the Internet that aren't yours to take)? How about taking God's name in vain? Is anything more important to you than your relationship with God? How about creating an idea of what you want God to be like instead of believing that He is who He says He is? Have you ALWAYS obeyed and honored your mom and dad? Have you ever murdered, or become angry with someone because you didn't get your way? This is a short, partial list of sins we commit. If you have broken them, there is Good News for you, if you want it. Your heart loves yourself instead of God. That is the basis for all other sins. When you stand before God, all your sin will be before you and God will tell you to depart and go into the Lake of Fire. That's terrible. Once a person is in it, they can never get out. They will be there for eternity. The Good News is that you don't have to go there. Jesus never broke any of the 10 Commandments, but He died to take your place so you don't have to go to hell. You have to turn away from your sin and turn to God, and trust in what Jesus did on the Cross 2000 years ago. After He died, he was buried and on the third day he came back alive from the dead! Before you put your head on your pillow tonight, please consider this. Repent, and believe in Jesus Christ and you will have eternal life with Him in heaven.
