Salvation or going to Heaven is not NOT EARNED. It is by God’s GRACE alone through FAITH in Jesus Christ and His finished work only. (Ephesians 2: 8-9, John 3: 16-18).
God of the Bible is the great I AM – ALL (time, space, others) is present in His sight. Or, God
simultaneously knows the past, the present, and the future.
My faith now is credited by God as righteousness based on the PAST finished work of Jesus – Jesus took away and paid in full the penalty of all my sins when He lived a sinless life, died, and resurrected from the dead for me and other Believers.
And the faith of Abraham, Moses, and others was credited to them by God as righteousness based on the FUTURE finished work of Jesus for them. Remember, God is All-knowing and Ever-present in time and space.
So, for all people, salvation is based on God’s GRACE alone, through FAITH in Jesus Christ only.
Now, when you die with your outstanding sins (your sins not taken away and their penalty not fully paid), then the Lake of Fire is your sure eternal destiny where you have to justly pay these. Why? Because God of the Bible is Holy, He cannot tolerate sin in His presence for all eternity.
And by the way, adultery and fornication are sins. Hence, there’s no such thing as a person having sex with 72 virgins in Paradise – as Muslims believe. When God don’t tolerate these sins here on Earth, why would He then tolerate adultery, fornication, and orgy in Heaven?
In Heaven, there’s only fellowship of love between God and true Believers, forever and ever.
So, someday, would you like to get to Heaven or the Lake of Fire? (Revelation 20: 11-15).
