Let Me Just Put All My Cards on the Table

I don't think you can call yourself an evangelical, let alone a fundamentalist, if you preach a different gospel from the one Dave Doran expounds here from Matthew 6:24.
At some point, if the only reason you ever turned to God was so that you would get heaven, then you may not have gotten the point. It's about God, not about you ending up in heaven. It's not about you finding a way to get something for yourself through God. It is that you came to see that there is such a fundamental distinction between the one who made everything and what was made, that in no way can we give to what was made what only belongs to the one who made it. He alone deserves to be worshiped and served and loved and devoted to and feared.

I John 5:12 puts it so much better (and in a much less complex way):

He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
