You can't earn your way to heaven. There is no way this is possible for any of us there are no perfect people. Only on belief and faith that Jesus Christ the son of God suffered and died for our salvation can we enter the kingdom of God no good acts will do it.

I have earned my place in heaven.
It's sad how many people believe they can do this.

He'll hate heaven when he gets there.

It's awfully warm and the flame decor leaves a lot to be desired.

Remember one thing, raml: Bloomberg is Jewish. The Jewish religion is built upon the premise that those born into it are God's people, chosen from birth.

That being said, I know of nothing in the Old Testament that says the kingdom of heaven is earned. In fact, hubris the kind we have seen in Bloomberg's quote has typically been a sure one-way ticket to Hell, or at least God's abandonment.
