"I believe I will go to heaven
because I live by the Golden Rule."
Much of the world
knows the Golden Rule simply as "do unto others
as you would have them do unto you" (see 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 haven’t loved those they have lied to, stolen
from, etc. This will show them that they have violated
the Golden Rule. They are under God’s wrath (John
3:36), desperately needing the Savior's cleansing blood.
