There are many men who are good, I mean really really good, better than me by miles... but are they going to heaven when they die or even on the judgement day? 1. All men, including Ghandi, are sinners, absolutely all. So all men need forgiveness, including Ghandi. So GOOD WORKS are not the issue, SIN is the issue. Unless you wash away sin you cannot be acceptable by works. If you obey the LAWS of God you MUST obey ALL the laws, but even IF you obey all the Laws you still need forgiveness. So Ghandi was a law unto himself. 2. Nobody comes to God except through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ fulfils the law and is the sacrifice for Sins. Anybody, Ghandi or mohammed or Buddha or joe the fireman, who rejects Jesus Christ CANNOT be saved from the lake of fire. God has made JESUS number one, the only one, the doorkeeper. Jesus is the heir of the Kingdom. So good works are, while they have the appearance of godliness and acceptance are altogether made worthless, as far getting into heaven. You are a sinner, but through Christ, if you have believed in him and accepted Him, you are made acceptable to God, He stands up for you in the court of heavenly places and pleads your case not to be thrown into hell. Ghandi has no lawyer. Now on the Judgement day every one whose name is not written in the book of life will be thrown into the lake of fire, everyone. I think there may be individuals like Ghandi who have a case based on their deeds to appeal, but if they have rejected Jesus they have already lost their case: because they are sinners. But what if they like Buddha never heard of Jesus, well Jesus went from the cross down into hell and took captive those who would believe. Every single human is known by God, all who have lived and died with or without the saving knowledge of Christ. When God destroyed the Earth with flood ONLY noah and his family were saved, all the rest: the kids, the old people, those getting married, those starting out in life, those who just got a job, those who won a million seashells, whatever, whoever, ALL of them were destroyed without PITY OR MERCY. And there were probably many good people, but who is good? EVEN Jews with the Law have been judged by God numerous times. GOOD works must come from FAITH, and can never save, they are fruits of Faith. If you doing good to get into heaven: GIVE UP, Jesus gets you in, but while your here you are being sanctified and made ready.
