  • As I am polytheistic, and don't believe that Jesus was the son of god, or any of that jazz, I would say not.
  • I'd like to think so but i kinda doubt it=(
  • I'm a good person. Not by god's standards, but frankly, Him holding me to such a high standard, well that's a bit of the pot calling the kettle black, now, isn't it?
  • Yes. I'm a good person. And yes I am fit for his kingdom because I've asked for his forgiveness of my sins!
  • No way. The only thing letting me in is His grace.
  • At this exact time in my life, by the Bible's standards, probably not. I could be wrong though. And yes I am a good person. I just have a little bit different beliefs than the Bible allows for.
  • I am a Christian Pastor and I am not sure that questions like this are too helpful on this site. I regularly ask the question of myself and my congregation but friendship that gives the opportunity to speak of the hope that is within us seems to be the best policy. Do not make enemies bu uncaring questioning but find room for discussion on all sorts of issues as the Apostle Paul did on Mars Hill.
  • Nah im an athiest I|f i wasnt...then sure! :D
  • I regret to say that I am an absolute moral pig. I have lied, cheated, and stolen all my life, and been self-deceiving about it the entire time. I have abandoned those who relied upon me and taken company with people I knew to be of horrible character and possessing no fiber whatsoever, yet I supported their misconduct and applauded them for theirs, as they supported me for mine. I have done nothing to be proud of that I haven't tarnished by my very name, and anything I have accomplished is in the way of causing discomfort and inconvenience to others. I cause shame to any decent and moral person who is caught in my presence, and spread fear and evil as I move about. The only good that will ever come from my life is when it is long over and good people forget that I ever existed and infested the same earth where they dwell. A disease should be named after me if I am to be remembered at all. Or a place infested with some agent that causes excruciating and miserable death. I should not be allowed to breed. Now, can I have supper?
  • I live by my own standards,and do the best I can for others and myself.I don't concern myself with god's standards.
  • By "God's" standards, I am a blasphemer and a heretic, and therefore unfit for the "Kingdom of God." However, I don't believe in the afterlife or in God, so it doesn't really make a difference, does it?
  • Being that I don't follow any organized religion, (though I do believe in a higher power), I feel that I can't answer for Him. I'm not ignorant enough to even pretend to answer for Him.
  • Not on my own.
  • Who can really define what God's standards really are. I believe that if I lead a generally good life and pray TRUELY that God will forgive me of my sins in then I am, by God's standards, a good person and am fit for the kingdom of God. I believe that it is important to remember that all sins are equal and no sin is great then another. So, gossiping and killing are both SINS by God's definition.
  • If I think about it and try really hard not to be biased towards myself...I don't even think he would bother to judge me. "Straight to hell with you!" he would say. I don't think God likes people like me, not for the gated community that is heaven, no sir!
  • YES I AM! Prasie the LORD!!!!! There is no other place that I have ever or will ever belong! Prasie the Lord for that!!
  • Okay..prepare to hit the downgrade button folks..but..the question was asked so I am gonna answer..LOL...One..I dont give a rats (blank) as to if I am meeting the standard of an alleged entity that is allowing "his" people to suffer and go hungry and kill and and and...I am busy down here trying like hell to help alot of "his" people while the entity sits somewhere watching. I am a good person, I do for others and I actually care about the people that are suffering..no prayers needed..Heart is all I need. So..if this entity that I am told sits there waiting to send my butt to hell would like to take over his job..I will gladly step aside. sorry if any find this offensive..just my opinion :)
  • Do I worship and idolize someone because I am told to? No. I will go out of my way to be kind to anyone, I do my best for animal rights as well as the rights of my fellow man, I stop on the side of the highway and help people, and I'm reliable almost to a fault. Guess I'm going to hell then.
  • Honey, I am WAY too good for that kingdom.
  • No. I'm a Ged out, gangbanging, ho hustling, coke snorting son-of-a-bitch. So the Catholic Church would love me if I just believed in God as well. I don't believe in God, because I believe Theism is inherently detrimental to spiritual health.
  • No one is good enough for the kingdom of God - in Romans 3:10-12 it says "As the Scriptures say, 'No one is righteous - not even one. No one is truly wise; no one is seeking God. All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one.'" (New Living Translation) So everyone should answer no to this question. BUT the greatest thing is that "For God so loved the world He gave His one and only Son, and whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." GOD FORGAVE US GIVING US THE OPPURTUNITY TO HAVE LIFE WITH HIM!!!!!!
  • I am an immoral, lying, cheating, asshole. I am in no way shape or form good enough for 'gods kingdom' but who cares, it's more fun being me! Oh, and lets not forget, 'gods kingdom' has gates...Do you really want to live in a gated community, whats up with that, do they have gangbangers or something trying to break in?
  • By Yahweh's standards, no I am not. That's ok, by my standards, He isn't a good person. I want nothing to do with the kingdom of Yahweh, so really don't care whether or not I'm considered "fit" for it. I don't consider Yahweh fit for worship.
  • I am a good person by my standards....He made me so I hope I am fit for his kingdom....if not then give me immoratality and call it a day...;)
  • 'By God's standards' no, certainly not... I actually want to help people 'without' a supernatural warrant : O Perhaps I am fit for the kingdom of God, being as low and apparently sinful as I am, surely a place of such great evil is befitting of me? : P I've said it before and I'll say it again; I'd rather burn in hell than stand on a pedestal in heaven hewn from the lives and souls of billions of innocent people. The God of the Bible doesn't deserve worship, he created us flawed and demanded we be fixed under threat of eternal punishment (a punishment which he also created, and to which he wilfully sends us to suffer extensively). If the punishment is 'infinite', so then must be the crimes, or the punisher's cruelty, and as there is no such thing as an infinite crime, the only answer is a punisher of infinite cruelty; God. Perhaps only God is fit for his kingdom... Perhaps only God is 'deserving' of his own kingdom and company.
  • No. I exist and god and his kingdom don't.
  • Of course not, we both know that. According to your God, I'm a horrible person who deserves to burn forever and ever. But he's a jerk, so I don't care. And besides, I'd hate to serve in such a wretched Kingdom. And he makes it virtualy impossible and is offended at even the /slightest most insignifcant, and most wretched and stupid/ of things. It's foolish, I say, foolish! However, to the standards of others, say... I don't know, my mother at least, she says I'm fit, as do all of my friends who are Christan - and please, don't tell me they are not because they are like you, they are indeed Chrsitan, thank you. But accordign to your standards, no, I'm not fit, and I don't right well care.
  • Who the bleep could possibly answer this one except God?
  • haha! I dont think so. My 3 things have always been drugs, sex and rock n roll. I dont think God would take to me too much.
  • By God's standard I am not but by God's grace I am!
  • I couldn't tell you if i fit in "gods standards" and no book written by self proclaimed "men of god" is going to tell me weather or not i am either. God is the only one who knows and only she may judge me. Am i fit for her kingdom? Ill tell you flat out: I do not care. And ill tell you why... There is no evidence that exists to prove otherwise. Ive never been given a sign, nor been told a secret that has lead me to belive this kingdom exists. All i know is what's here and now... which is essentially all that god left me with. My goal, is to make the HERE and NOW, as close to heaven as possible. And should i die to find absolutely nothing, it would at least be known that I tried to make things better for everyone around me, instead of wasting time condemning others and waiting for a gift i felt i deserved while doing nothing to deserve it.
  • I believe that God thinks of me as a good person. HOWEVER, my being a good person has NOTHING to do with being "fit" for the Kingdom of God. I have been saved by His Grace and am a sinner still. I live each day trying to do things the best I can to be pleasing to God. I ask for His forgiveness of my sins every time I pray. I will never be sin-free but that doesn't mean I don't make the best effort I can to live a pleasing life for God. I have come to terms with this and don't live under a cloud of doom or gloom. I am at peace with myself and my place in God's Kingdom. I will go to heaven when I die. I am very happy and content with my relationship with Christ. I love Him and I know He loves me. I feel there is nothing more to be done or to ask for. All is as it should be for me. :-)
  • I probably seem like a really bad person...by God's standards...whatever you think those are...but I'm really nice...sometimes. Maybe that's good. I'm probably still going to hell if I died tomorrow though.
  • I do not feel comfortable in referring to myself as “good” given that Jesus replied, “Why do you call me good? Nobody is good, except one, God.” When someone called him good. “ Luke 18:18, 19 Jesus always remained modest, always directing all glory to his Father. I hope that I have God’s approval and will always follow the Christ in the way that I live. The Kingdom of God is real to me and that is what I am pursuing. “From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of the heavens is the goal toward which men press, and those pressing forward are seizing it.” (Matthew 11:12)
  • Only by faith.
  • The wording of the question makes it a bit difficult to answer. It appears loaded. A 'yes' answer is bound to make one appear rather smug. Especially when the incomparably good and great themselves have said things like “WHY CALLEST THOU ME GOOD? there is none good but one, that is, God” (Jesus in Matthew 19:17)and "I am nothing new among the messengers (of God), NOR DO I KNOW WHAT WILL BE DONE WITH ME or with you. I do but follow that which is inspired in me, and I am (nothing) but a plain warner." (Mohammed in HQ 46:9). The best answer one can give to both is 'hope so' and pray that it's not tinged with any self-righteousness.
  • Most unfortunately, I don't think I CAN think like the God I believe in. And what are we calling "fit?"
  • You no what, thats not up to us. Thats up to God when he judges us after our death. If we led a good life accepting Jesus in our hearts, then we will go to heavan prolly. If we led an OK life, we will stay in Limbo(purgatory). But if we led a terrible life without looking at a God once, we will prolly go to hell. But liek i said we cant judge anyone.
  • Im atheist, but by people I am a good, honest loyal person. I personally dont care what a fictional character thinks of me.
  • I think that in the end it will not be god/godess that judges wither we are good or bad people but our own belives in what kind of life we lead.
  • No. That's the beauty of it.
  • I am fit because of Jesus' righteousness not for my personal efforts to be a good person.
  • Are you a good person? Take the good person test needGod.com
