Father Mike, “Do All Good People go to Heaven”


Many people follow God because they fear not getting into heaven. Following God is more than just being a good person, meaning you don’t kick dogs as you walk past. Being Christian means that you need to reorient your life to do God’s will. It means living your life according to God. Heaven is not a prize for those who are good and do the occasional good deed. The road to get into Heaven is narrow but everyone is invited to take this path. The road to Hell is wide and crowded. I agree with the way Father Mike portrays the road to Heaven and Hell because even though everyone is invited to Heaven by God, many will choose not to accept the invitation. Receiving the eucharist, getting baptized and attending church on holy days are essential to make it to heaven. We have to put in work every day to prepare ourselves to enter heaven.
