Son, Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of NYC has said and done some things in the past that have made me and others mad, but this one just makes me sad.
Pointing to his work on gun safety, obesity and smoking cessation, he said with a grin: “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”
Son, it’s not “if” there is a God……there “IS” a God! There also is no fast track to heaven, we each will be judged or “interviewed”. You don’t get to heaven by good deeds alone, you must “BELIEVE”.
I am telling you this because the ex-mayor is in the public spotlight, and we can’t let others think he is right. Look at the bible verse below, it makes it pretty clear for us.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
