John 3:16 16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (NIV)

Many think, and say if God is love He wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on going to heaven.  They are right.  God doesn’t want anyone to miss out on going to heaven.  This is why He sent His Son, Jesus.  No one can be in heaven who isn’t righteous.  None of us is righteous.  To be righteous one must always be completely right.  Only God, the Father, God the Son, Jesus and God the Holy Spirit are always right.  God set the rules of only righteous being in heaven because God won’t be in the presence of sin.  He is the One Who created all that is and therefore He owns all that is and He is the only One Who can set the rules.  But He loves us so He provided a way for us to become righteous.  We can be covered with the righteousness of Jesus.  The only way we can have His righteousness cover us is by believing in Him.  Believing in Him doesn’t mean we believe He existed on earth or that He is the Son of God.  It means we believe in Him by taking Him into our hearts, minds and lives as our Savior and our Lord – our boss.  Yes God loves all mankind and desires for all mankind to live with Him in heaven for eternity but man must be covered with the righteousness of Jesus to have a place in God’s home.
