Doesn’t God allow everyone to go to heaven if they were fairly good people?

A »

Romans 5:12 says, “… just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin…” the Bible teaches that we are dead in our sin. Being good does not give us what we need. We need LIFE. We need to be born of the spirit so that we have a spiritual life. Sinful men carry the debt of sin, and that debt has to be paid for.

God is Holy and without sin. A Holy God cannot receive an unholy people into a perfect heaven. So what man could not do for themselves, God did by sending his own son to be a sacrifice for our sins. (Romans 8:3)
