The last thing that allows you into heaven, according to the Bible, is God's mercy. That means that no matter how good, or how bad you are while here on Earth, when you face God, he decides. He`s more likely to have mercy on you if you`re good, but if at the last minute, Charles Manson realized his sins, honestly, and begged God for forgiveness, and accepted Jesus Christ, he`d be able to get into heaven, if he had God`s mercy. It also means that Mother Theresa might have faced God, and not received his mercy, and gone to hell. Or, as Emo Philips put it: "When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn`t work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me."
