Will everyone go to heaven?

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14

No, because many choose not to go to heaven. The road is laid out clearly and the directions are available to everyone, but many choose their own way.

In Matthew 22, Jesus tells the parable of the Wedding Banquet. Many were invited, but turned down the invitation.

People’s hearts are hard. It’s why Jesus came to earth, to convince them of eternal life with God through the forgiveness of sin by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.

He said, “Go and tell this people:
“ ‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding;
be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’
Make the heart of this people calloused;
make their ears dull
and close their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed.” Isaiah 6:9-10
