I believe I will go to heaven because I live by the Golden Rule.

 

Objection:

"I believe I will go to heaven because I live by the Golden Rule."

Answer:

Much of the world knows the Golden Rule simply as "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" (Luke 6:31). According to this verse, if we can live by this rule and love our neighbor as much as we love ourselves, we fulfill the Law. Ask those who claim to do this if they have ever lied, stolen, hated, or looked with lust. If they have broken any of these Commandments, then they havenít loved those they have lied to, stolen from, etc. This will show them that they have violated the Golden Rule. They are under Godís wrath (John 3:36), desperately needing the Savior's cleansing blood.
