I lazily used the term "being good" for heaven but still ...


When Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6), I always viewed his life here as bringing the flock back up to speed after a tumultuous few centuries since the life of Moses. For example did no one get to heaven before he was here? What about other continents and what they believed - absolutely no heaven for them?

I'm not being anti-Christian - I consider myself one - but the fact is that the church really embraced the notion of how to reach heaven 500 years after his death. That is many generations of figuring things out, hence my point about a human construct.
