Let the truth be told, doing good while on earth is part of the preconditions for one to make it to heaven after life on earth. There is peace of mind and great sense of fulfilment when you're compassionate, considerate and empathetic to your fellow man. To be able to feel the pain, suffering, anguish they are going through. To be able to put a smile on people's faces.
Turn around you, you see a whole lot of people dying of impoverishment, malnourishment, disesases, sickness, etc. And there we have those that called themselves politicians, pastors, aristocrates, technocrates etc, living as if this less privileged people don't exist. There is no two ways about it if you are the type that is always looking at for the poor and needy and your heart is pure nothing is going to stop you from making it to heaven, period!
