Lots of people believe many different things about what it means to be a Christian. Some say if your good outweighs your bad, then you’re a good Christian.
What does the Bible say?

Rom. 3:23 All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. – Romans 3:23
So no matter how good someone is, they still fall short of God’s standard. He says all have sinned and fall short of his glory. Not exactly good news is it?
The good news is the fact that despite our shortcomings, God has provided us a way to know him and to be able to be in his family. That is through his son Jesus. Jesus provided the one time sacrifice to take the punishment of our sins. That’s good news. All we have to do is accept what he did for us and we can be saved.
