Dinosaurs don't go to heaven, but we'd like you to know that
you can... if...
That's right. There is a big "IF." You
don't go to heaven just because you are human. Unfortunately, although God desires
everyone to be in heaven with Him, few people choose to be with God.
goes to heaven?
God gives the answer the answer in His Word... and
the answer IS NOT that good people go to heaven and bad people go to hell. Let
With my head up so high in the air I hear a lot things, including
you humans talking. And most of you think you are going to heaven because you
are good... or at least good enough to get into heaven. And you are right. Good
people do go to heaven. But, what defines a good person? Who sets the standard
of "goodness" that is good enough to get into heaven?
God Sets The Standard
sets the standard and that standard is perfection. God has even given you a way
to find out if you are good enough... if you are perfect. It's the Ten Commandments.
If you've perfectly obeyed all of the Ten Commandments, all of your life, you
are perfect. How about it? Would you like to take the test?
lies have you told? Have you ever taken something that does not belong to
you? Even something small, or downloading music from the internet? That would
be two of the Ten Commandments, lying and stealing.
Have you ever been
unjustly angry with someone? In Matthew 5 Jesus says that being angry at someone
is like murdering them in your heart. You see, God looks at your heart... your
thoughts. For example, have you ever looked at another person with lust? That
is adultery of the heart.
That's just four of the Ten Commandments, and
all it takes is breaking one! There is no doubt... no one meets the the standard
of "good" required to get into heaven. Not one. You've broken God's
laws. You've done the crime(s) and so you must pay the time... eternity in the
lake of fire.
So what can you do?
You've hear of Jesus? I have,
and I'm a dinosaur. Jesus is God who came to earth, lived a perfect life, and
died on the cross giving that perfect life to you. You did the crime, but Jesus
did the time... and He is willing to give that gift to you. That's right, it's
a free gift!
If you repent (turn away from disobeying God) and turn to God...
trust that Jesus is God who died in your place to pay the penalty you've earned
for breaking God's laws... believing that your penalty was paid in full on the
cross... He gives you that gift. And to demonstrate this is true, that you can
trust His promises, on the third day after He died, He rose from the dead, demonstrating
there truly is life after death.
Yes, you can have life, forever, with
It's your choice. No matter what you do, you cannot get into heaven
on your own. Turn to Jesus today. Trust that He has paid you penalty for sin in
