Are All Christians On The Road To Heaven?

“A thoroughfare will be there – it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it; it is reserved for those authorized to use it – fools will not stray into it.” Isaiah 35:8 NET


God said the road to heaven is narrow and difficult, and few would walk upon it. The prophet Isaiah calls this road the Way of Holiness. Nearly forty percent of the world’s population claim to be Christian, yet the ways of God, as recorded in the word of God, are declining among the world’s cultures. Why is this? Are forty percent of the world’s people walking in holiness according to God’s prescribed manner as recorded in the Scripture? They are not because most who claim to be Christian ignore the Scripture. The church has defined a Christian as a believer in Jesus. Yet the devil himself holds this same belief. Certainly, God calls us to believe in Him. Still, upon believing in Him, He requires us to repent from our evil deeds, that is, confess our rebellion and cease rebelling, then follow Jesus by denying ourselves, putting God’s will before our own, and obeying everything Jesus commanded as recorded in the Scriptures. Is this the definition of Christianity that forty percent are living? Our proclamation of being a Christian doesn’t require God to receive us as Christians into His eternal dwelling place. Access to the highway to heaven is given to those who truly love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, evidenced by our obedience to everything He commands, as recorded in the Scripture He has provided us for knowing Him and doing His will in the world.
