I never kicked a dog,
A child or my wife
I never looked at pornography
I swear it on my holy saint mother’s life
But somehow she’s down here with me

The road to hell is littered
with nice guys with good intentions
But once you’re there, you’re there
It’s much too late
I can cry and scream it’s just not fair
To leave me here like you don’t care
There must be some mistake up there in heaven

Now it’s much too late
My time has passed away
All my plans and dreams have all ended
Now it’s much too late
To try and plead my case
And I don’t know the God I’ve offended
It’s too late

I never stole a thing
A toy or a kiss
My conscience is a clear as can be
And when I was a teen
All the sex that I missed
Was an abstinence blessing to me

The road to hell is littered
with nice guys with good intentions
But once you’re there, you’re there
It’s much too late
I can cry and scream it’s just not fair
To leave me here like you don’t care
There must be some mistake up there in heaven

Now it’s much too late
My time has passed away
All my plans and dreams have all ended
Now it’s much too late
To try and plead my case
And I don’t know the God I’ve offended
It’s too late

Guys like the above don’t go to heaven. Why? “Good intentions” won’t get you there. Missing out on sex, even though you really wanted it, doesn’t make you good. Not stealing is no big deal…you’re supposed to not steal. What do you want for not stealing, a cookie?

“Wait a second,” you might say. “That guy in the song is not perfect, but he’s a lot better than most Christians that I know!”

Indeed, many nice guys like the above will spend an eternity in hell, because he simply isn’t good enough. God is perfect, He has perfect standards. The only way to heaven is to know the God you have offended with your sin. Know God, or no God. No God, no heaven.
