I am saddened by pastors not living godly lives & I agree with you that membership in a religious organization doesn't get you into Heaven. However, living by the golden rule doesn't secure a reservation either!
Jesus said: "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
St. Paul wrote: "If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
We should be thankful this Thanksgiving that "God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Would you repent of your sins, accept Jesus Christ's offer of forgiveness, and confess Him as Lord?
I have repented, asked forgiveness, and confess Jesus as my Lord and will be eternally thankful in Heaven because of what Jesus did. I fail every day at living by the golden rule (just like everyone else including pastors). Soli Deo Gloria!
