True Riches With The Mission Men tackles 5 myths about Heaven.
Do you feel there is no Heaven, only sleep/rest/unconsciousness/nothing as heaven and hell are what you make it here?
Do you believe that everybody goes to Heaven?
Do you think that if you believe in God, you’re not atheist or just religious, and you try to treat people fair and right, you’ll go to Heaven because you’re an all-around “good person”?
Do you think you’ll get to Heaven because you’re very religious, you’ve been baptized and you tithe to the church regularly?
Do you feel that if your good works out weigh you bad, you’ll go to Heaven?
