Buying your way into Heaven

Can you buy you way into Heaven? Many have tried. Giving millions to charities, sponsoring children’s groups, feeding the starving, volunteering their time and money for WHO for example and other great organizations that are out there for the benefit for mankind.  Does that help get them into Heaven? How about going to church every week and never missing, and paying their tithe, but for that requiring some say in how the church is run?

Mark 10:25 – It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

The simple answer is no. You can’t buy a ticket, cut in line, assume that giving millions to help people will get you into heaven. God knows your mind; He knows your ulterior motives. Sure, it’s good to give to the poor, better yet, help the poor…fix a meal, help with their needs, volunteer in your community… give of yourself. There is only one way to get into Heaven and that’s through Jesus Christ our Savior and he paid the price already. He can’t be bought.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I'm retired, always have to be doing something. Have been working on computers since about 1986...I guess that should be playing those days. Did a fair bit of desktop publishing in the 90's through the 2015's and finished off with web building. Took a few courses, built 5 or 6 small business sites in our town and did maintenance on them while working at my paper.
