The curse of sin: No immoral, impure or greedy person has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God

Jesus in the beatitudes explains to us that there are behaviors destined for rewards and behaviors destined for punishments (Luke 6:20-26), and this is so by the laws that govern the universe: the righteousness ("Do to others what you would have them do to you", Matthew 7:12), and a law of balance ("Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows." Galatians 6:7), the law of the harvest and sowing. Beyond our personal perceptions, or our way of discerning, there is an order established by God, in Christianity this order is called "beatitude", in the Chinese culture "Tao", and in the Japanese culture "Shinto". And this order can only be clearly perceived when we receive the holy spirit in our hearts: "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again" John 3:3.
Jesus invites us to live blessed, to seek that life that definitively unites us to God, eternal life. But he also warns us that there is a different path that is the path of pain and foolishness. If we choose the path of error out of personal selfishness, as happens to the rich young man who cannot follow Jesus for the love of riches, we are destined to the works of the flesh and to live with our backs turned to the blessings of the Kingdom of Heaven, as explains the apostle Paul: "For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God" Ephesians 5:5.
In the book of revelations there is a similar teaching: "But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur" Revelation 21:8.
A christian statement is always true, if we sin we receive curse, if we do good we receive reward, the path we choose is an election of the heart.
