Will being a good person get you to heaven? The answer is NO. The Bible tells us that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Although we may be basically good and do many good deeds we are still sinners and must rely on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to get to heaven. The measure is not how we compare to each other, but how we compare to the glory of God..
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
