The requirement for Heaven is perfection. No human being can ever achieve that. But when we realize that Christ is our Lord and the only Savior, when we put our faith in Him, He covers us in His righteousness.

There are only two possible roads to heaven to God, two gates, two ways, two religious paths. One is the religion of human achievement. You earn your way by your morality, by your goodness, by your religiosity, by ceremonies, rituals, rites. This is the religion of human achievement, you have to do something. And this, by the way, is the category in which all false religions on the planet fit. They’re all just different forms of the religion of human achievement. And if you break one law of God one time, as James say, you’re guilty of violating all of it and you’re cursed. There is no hope for those people who come that way.
The other is the true religion of divine accomplishment, where everything is done by God, and it’s offered to us by grace and received by faith, not works.
