Not All Will Go to Heaven

On November 26, 2014, the Bishop of Rome told the general audience who gathered in St. Peter’s Square:

It is beautiful to think of this, to think of Heaven. And we will all meet there. All of us, all of us … up there … all of us.

It is true that Jesus offered His life to redeem the sins of everyone, but it does not mean that everyone will go to Heaven. For those who are not familiar with the Bible, they may be led to believe that all will go to Heaven, which, unfortunately, is not the case.

Jesus never said that all will go to Heaven. As a matter of fact, he told us in Matthew 7:13–14:

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!

It is clear from this passage that few will find the way that leads to Heaven.

Read the Bible. Do not be lulled into false complacency, thinking that you will go to Heaven regardless of how you live your life.
