Response to The March of the Unqualified

A good friend of mine sent me a link to this video on YouTube...

It’s a good start, but don't stop there! Don't be lulled to sleep with a false assurance, thinking God will admit you into His Holy Kingdom without first dealing with your sin.

Watching this makes me feel "not so bad" about my sin, but God's justice demands our sin must be dealt with! (Psalm 5:5)

True, the Bible says “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Rom 3:23)” but also it says the wages of sin is death (Rom 6:23). Jesus talks more about hell than Heaven (see Matthew 5 and 23, Mark 9, and Luke 12:5 for a few examples). We're not ALL going to Heaven.

The only ones who are saved from the penalty of spiritual death are true born-again Christians, whose lives have been radically transformed following the repentance and faith that is provided by Jesus Christ alone, and not by any works or goodness on our part (Eph 2:8-9).

If you're unsure of your eternal destination...
