You Cannot Be A Good Person If You Do Not Believe In Heaven
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” (II Peter 1:3-4 NIV)
The Bible teaches that you cannot live a good life if you do not believe in God’s promises. These promises include the promise to resurrect us to heaven if we believe and repent, and to rescue us from our sins.
If you do not believe God’s “very great and precious promises” you have not “escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”
You cannot defeat the selfishness inside you by your own power.
