Won’t I go to heaven as long as I believe in God?

From a biblical perspective:

James 2:19   “You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.”

Matthew 7:21-23   “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

God is Love

People often envoke God’s love because love is merciful and most of us know we need a great deal of mercy for God to forgive us of our sins.  But at the same time people will often reject portions of the Bible that are critical of their lifestyle.  But without a trustworthy source of information regarding God, such as the Bible, we do not know if God is indeed loving.  To reject portions of the Bible because we don’t like them does not make them false or any less God’s Word.  To reject certain parts of the Bible this way is to undermind all of it, including God’s love.
