Getting into Heaven Recognize that you are not in charge If you are at all interested in your personal existence after you die, you must consider this question: what will determine my situation after I die?
Recognize that only one god can be in charge Before you consider various standards by which your god will determine your worthiness to be admitted into heaven, you will need to consider another question.

But you may struggle with a lack of confidence The issue of confidence regarding which god and set of moral rules and religious rituals are ultimately the best passport into heaven is extremely important to anyone who is seriously seeking to get into heaven.
