Can a Christian live in sin all their life, and then enter the Kingdom of God?

Who are the people who will not inherit, and who will not enter the Kingdom of God?

Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Eph 5:3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
Eph 5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Eph 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.


Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.


1Co 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1Co 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.


The answer is “NO” Why? Because God will not allow one of his own to continue in such behavior!

As Jesus said.....

John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
John 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.
John 10:29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.

Who can snatch one of God's own from Jesus's, or God the Father's hands?
No one” That includes the Devil, and even you yourself!!!

How so?

Heb 12:6 For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.”
Heb 12:7 It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline?
Heb 12:8 If you are left without discipline, in which all have participated, then you are illegitimate children and not sons.


God the Father disciplines, chastises every son who belongs to him!!
If anyone who claims to be a child of God, and they are living in open sin and are not being corrected, disciplined, or even scourged by God then they are not a child of God!!!


Heb 12:9 Besides this, we have had earthly fathers who disciplined us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live?
Heb 12:10 For they disciplined us for a short time as it seemed best to them, but he disciplines us for our good, that we may share his holiness.


Even our earthly fathers corrected us when we did wrong and that for their own pleasure, but God corrects us for our own good so we might share in his holiness!!

Heb 12:11 For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

How can a child of God know they belong to God?
Are you ever corrected, chastised when you do wrong? How is your conscience when you sin? The Apostle Paul said......


2Co 13:5 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!

inherit the kingdom of God. I used to belong to group on fb called basic theology that said you could live in sin and not be changed and still enter heaven. they said inheriting the kingdom of God was speaking of rewards not eternal life. I left this group but wanted to warn others publicly and thought this thread was a good place since Curt nailed it !! they also claim the luke warm church that Jesus spits out of his mouth is saved

One can live in sin from the day they are born to the day they die...Still the only way to enter heaven when they die is to sincerely repent of their wicked ways, sincerely admit their need of a savior and sincerely ask Jesus into their hearts. They could die two seconds later and they would enter heaven..No rewards but they would still be in heaven. The thief on the cross is a good example of that.
