WHY GOOD PEOPLE GO TO HELL (Luke 18:9-14)

by Chris Ekins on Sun 14 Nov, 10

Do you consider yourself a good person? According to Jesus,
Religious people with good morals are in real danger of going to hell.
And seriously flawed sinners have a great chance of going to heaven.
Wanna know why?
Maybe it's time to rethink your view yourself...and your approach to God.

The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector
9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’ 13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ 14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
