Fortunately, we don't have to guess, assume, or
even speculate as to who won't go to Heaven.

The Bible clearly tells us who will not go. . .

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and
murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters,
and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with
fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
  Revelation 21:8

All liars will not go.   Obviously, this includes a lot of people other than the Hitlers of
the world.   God doesn't want lies going around Heaven (would you?).

. . . and idolaters will not go.   God hates idolatry.   He created us to worship Him and
Him alone.   That means our lives are supposed to revolve around God.   We are supposed
to make Him the primary object of our love and attention.   However, there are a lot of
people who love sports, money, career, personal pleasure, and anything else other than
God.   Many of them will only give God "the time of day" during Christmas and Easter.
(Incidentally, if a person doesn't want to spend time with God now, why would they want
to spend eternity with Him in Heaven?)

. . . and sorcerers will not go.   The word sorcerer comes from the same Greek word
that we get the word "Drugs".   Therefore, a sorcerer is one who uses or sells drugs.   And
considering that alcohol is a drug, sorcerers include a lot of people.   (Actually, sorcerers
won't like Heaven anyway since they won't be able to score any drugs or buy booze.)

. . . and whoremongers will not go.   This is another term for fornicators-those who
practice sex outside of marriage.   To be a whoremonger a person doesn't even have to
carry out the sexual act because Jesus said: "Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust
after her hath committed adultery with her ALREADY in his heart."
  Matt. 5:28

. . . and murderers will not go.   There are a lot more murderers walking around than
you think.   Jesus Christ said that if a person simply hates someone, God will consider that
murder (Matt. 5:21-22).   (God knows our thoughts and He doesn't want to spend eternity
"seeing" people mentally going through the motions of murdering someone.)

. . . and the abominable will not go.   An abomination is anything that God considers
vile and disgusting.   And since He is holy, there are a lot of acts that God considers
abominable.   If a person doesn't even want to pursue holiness why should God allow him
into Heaven.   (These people would probably find Heaven boring anyway.   So, in essence,
God is doing them a big favor by keeping them out.)

. . . nor the unbelieving.   Of course, this includes anyone who doesn't believe
anything that they have read so far.   But more importantly, it includes anyone who doesn't
believe that they are a lost, hell-bound sinner who can't save themselves and therefore
need someone (Jesus Christ) to save them.   (After all, if a person is going to call God a liar
by not believing what the Bible says, why should God allow that person into Heaven?)

. . . the fearful will not go.   This includes all those who know that they must repent
and trust Jesus Christ to save their hell-bound soul, and yet won't do it because they're
afraid of what others might think.   But Jesus said: "I will forewarn you whom ye shall
fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto
you, FEAR HIM."
  Luke 12:5

If you think this list includes way too many people-you're right.   In fact, Jesus said:
"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for WIDE is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth
to destruction
[Hell], and MANY THERE BE WHICH GO IN THEREAT."   Matt. 7:13

So who will go to Heaven?

The only ones who will go are those that are saved.   The Bible says: "And the nations of
them which ARE SAVED shall WALK IN the light of it
[Heaven]."   Revelation 21:24

Christ died for YOUR sins.   Therefore, if you REPENT and TRUST in Christ's sacrificial
payment for your sins, you too can be among the saved: "FOR BY GRACE ARE YE
SAVED THROUGH FAITH; and that NOT OF YOURSELVES: it is the gift of God:
NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast."
  Ephesians 2:8-9

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus [i.e. REPENT], and shalt
believe in thine heart
[i.e. TRUST] that God hath raised him from the dead, THOU
SHALT BE SAVED."
  Romans 10:9

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be SAVED."   Rom. 10:13
