Many people want to believe that everyone will go to heaven. Some cover their consciences by believing all their loved ones who die will make it to heaven. But looking at biblical truth, we see that only a few will receive eternal life (Matthew 7:13-14). Many will try but will be condemned (Luke 13:24). This should be a sobering thought for everyone.

The Bible identifies those who will be condemned, including the following:

It is still not too late, even for those who fall into any of the above descriptions. The trumpet has not sounded. Jesus hasn't returned . . . yet. One can stop and turn his life around. Salvation is available only through Jesus Christ (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). The choice is yours. Make the right decision today. Tomorrow may never come.
