Scott Kerman is an author of a book that describes 50 ways to sneak into concerts and sporting events. And he has thoroughly researched his topic by claiming to have attended 300 sporting events or concerts, including 25 World Series baseball games. And he did so without paying a penny.
Scott’s gate-crashing raises all sorts of ethical questions. But I think the topic of his book raises another question. Is it possible to somehow sneak into heaven? Can the gates of heaven be crashed?
I think Jesus answered that for us in John 14:6, when He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Jesus, who paid the price by shedding His blood on the cross, is the Ticket. It requires personal faith in Christ.
Blom wrote in an old hymn:
He the pearly gates will open
So that I may enter in,
For He purchased my redemption
And forgave me all my sin.
