THANKS for answering these important questions.
Now here is the great news that I promised you. The great news is the Heaven is a FREE gift! All of your life you may have been under the impression that God is weighing your good deeds against your bad deeds and that in the end He will either welcome you into heaven or NOT, based on the outcome. The great news is that our future does not have to hang in the balance depending on our performance. In a world full of constant pressure this really should help to relieve some of the heat. The Bible tells us:
". . . . the gift of God is eternal life. . . ." Romans 6:23b
As we all know a genuine gift is completely free. That means you could never WORK for the gift of eternal life no more that you could work for a birthday or Christmas gift.
I want to stop here for just a minute and say something. The fact that you are reading this right now is NOT an accident. I believe that God has more great news for you. Please don't stop now. Continue and find out WHY heaven is a free gift and find out how to receive it.
