Why is it that everyone is going to heaven, even though they were wicked? I have been to two funerals recently where both women couldn’t be bothered with God. I don’t know their hearts but if you loved God and loved others as yourself, your life would show it, right? One woman suffered for over a year with cancer and then died young. Those who knew her said she recommitted her life to God during her illness, especially when she was sent home to die. I hope she was sincere. The other woman was older and never went to church except as a child and occasionally for a family event. She died suddenly in her sleep, so she did not get a chance to reflect on her eternal destination. She never professed to be a Christian, yet at her funeral, they said she was scrubbing the streets of gold (audience chuckles) because she liked to clean. When the unsaved hear this, they are deceived into believing that everyone goes to heaven. This is a lie.
I understand that the loved ones of the deceased want to be assured that the dead goes to heaven. How does one explain the true reality? How do you tell people that they are going to hell if they don’t believe in Jesus as the Son of God, do the Father’s will, and love God with all their heart, mind, soul, and strength? My heart breaks for the lost, but when the lost are deceived, how do you convince them otherwise? I know the conviction of sin is the work of the Holy Spirit. So many questions. The following post explained the fact that many who claim to be Christian will not enter heaven.
2 Corinthians 13:5-6 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test! 6 I hope you will find out that we have not failed the test. This will be the 1st part of a 2 […]Who Enters Heaven? SHEEP AND GOATS, EXAMINING WHERE YOU STAND. PART 1 — Disciple’s Direction
