God's Plan Of Salvation And You

Feb 20, 2008
Most people have a moderate view of the Bible. They have not necessarily read enough to consider themselves to be experts but, at least in the United States, most people do have at least a vague picture of God and the Bible being as legitimate concepts.

Since you do believe that the Bible is reasonably accurate and there is someone that is God and Heaven is real you must have your opinions about who goes to heaven when they die.

A lot of people have the understanding that since God is the God of love that all good people will go to heaven to be with him after they die. The problem is that many of us are not quite sure how to define whether a person is good or not.

Do you consider yourself to be a good person because compared to your family, and friends, and coworkers, and people that you see you on television you definitely are a good person?

God does not judge us in this way. Instead he makes it clear in the Bible that we are not to compare ourselves to other people but rather we are to compare ourselves to him. When we compare ourselves to God then we realize that compared to him we are not good people.

Naturally you want evidence to back this up and we don't have to go any further than just looking briefly at the 10 Commandments. God wants us to have a clearer picture of how far we really are from being good people. Within society we are probably good people compared to others but the absolute of the 10 Commandments makes it clear to all of us that we do not measure up.

We know that we only need to see one white crow to know that all crows are not black. In the same way we only have to violate one of the 10 Commandments one time to know that we are not perfect. Few of us need to go any deeper into the 10 Commandments then two of them to realize that because we have told lies we are liars and because we have stolen things no matter how small, that we are thieves and do not measure up to God's gold standard.

God's desire for us is to measure ourselves against the 10 Commandments so that we can see clearly how far from him we are. His intention is that once we see ourselves for what we truly are that we will sincerely apologize to him, a sincere apology naturally involves a change of actions and that we would ask for his forgiveness in Christ. Obviously this is a deep subject and there is a lot more that can be said about it.
