Blocks To Salvation

Greetings My Friends
It is fairly common in this day and age to hear things like, "there are many ways to get to heaven" and "everyone will go to heaven". There are many people who for whatever reason, don't know any better, so they listen to high-ranking people in government and society who are saying those very things.
Many of the people who fall for this line of thought, either don't know any better, or they haven't put in the effort to know the truth. Another reason people except this philosophy, is that they don't have to be accountable for their actions, because so-and-so said what they did, and that makes everything okay. And then of course you have those people, who act like if they ignore the truth, everything will be okay.
The Bible says positively, that the only way to heaven is through Jesus Christ. It is written in acts 4:12 "nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved".
There are many people who try to justify what they do by reinterpreting the Bible. My friends, God wrote what He meant, we don't need to speculate about what He really meant or was thinking. The fact of the matter is if it was a sin then, it is a sin now. There is no way to change that. We will all have forever to think about whether we were right or wrong. Remember, we each make our own decision as to where that eternity will be.
There are many people who are what we call good people. They follow the laws, follow what their church teaches, help others, but do not know Jesus as their personal Savior. Good works will not get you to heaven. Only accepting Jesus and what He did for us will do that.
Then of course you have the highly educated, high achievers. Most of them have had people in college who are atheist, constantly talking against God. I never could figure out how someone who does not believe in God, will fight so hard against Him. If you don't believe He exists, why does He bother you?
High achievers for the most part, believe that everything they have accomplished was a result of their own efforts. There is usually a high level of pride and ego, that makes them feel that they have no need of God. Some know a little about God, but cannot admit that they need Him.
In eternity, there are no excuses, reasons, or any justification to save us. It is our responsibility to do what is right. God gave us the Bible to show us. Open your mind, heart, and call out to God. He hears, and wants all to be saved. He said so.
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation

Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior. Thank you Lord. Amen.
