Scriptures: John 14:1-6, Proverbs 14:12, Ephesians 2:8-9
Assuming that both the Son of God and the Word of God tells the truth about heaven, the even bigger question is this--How does one get there? The predominant world view of the twenty-first century is that there are many ways to get to heaven, and that one way is just as good as another and no way is better than the other. In this message, Dr. Merritt unpacks the truth that there is but one way to heaven, and what we must understand in order to be counted among those who will spend eternity with Christ there.
"There are a lot of people who think they are going to heaven who are not. When you think about it, there are three things that are absolutely necessary if anybody is going to heaven. First of all, you must believe in heaven. Second, you have to want to go to heaven, but most importantly you have to know the way to heaven." --Dr. Merritt
