‘The Church’s greatest mistakes occur when the people of God honor what a leader says without examining that instruction in the light of scripture.”

It’s amazing to me that HARDLY ANY STUDY what the New Testament really teaches about WHO GOES TO HEAVEN. What subject could be more important? There are very few BEREANS today, whom Paul said were “more noble.” They CHECKED the scriptures daily to make sure what Paul taught them was true.
It’s just common sense to make sure, right? Especially when the Bible predicted that false doctrine would prevail in the last days:
“For the time will come when they *will not listen to the sound doctrine*, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers *after their own lusts*; and will *turn away their ears from the truth*, and turn aside to *fables*.” – 2 Tim. 4:3-4
“D. A. Carson: The Problem of the Canon Within the Canon — A subset of scriptures taught in exclusion of those that would result in true doctrine. “We badly need to listen to one another, especially when we least like what we hear.”
Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”
