There is a common and complacent attitude that if someone (such as the speaker...) is a basically Good Person (by world historical standards - i.e. not a murderer, rapist, thief... and at least somewhat altruistic), then they have no need to worry about ultimate things; such as the soul, salvation, eternal life, or God. Such stuff can be put-off until after death we can discover one way or the other...
But this is not true, not here and now, in the modern West; on the contrary there is a great deal to worry about.
Not for the usual reasons given by too-many Christians - e.g. that one must be a Christian because otherwise a vengeful God will send you to Hell; but for the much more serious reason that most modern people will actively, in full awareness, with open-eyes, choose to reject Heaven; because they have simply absorbed the mainstream, standard, positively-demonic view propagated by our entire leadership class and in the mass media.
In other words, modern people may well behave as Good People but their motivations for doing so are evil; and in these matters motivation is everything...
Motivation is everything because motivation is our true inner self, it reflects our evaluations, our aims, our hopes and wishes - and the normal attitude of normal people nowadays is one of inversion of the Good - virtue is inverted, beauty is inverted.
But to focus on one specific: truth. It is not merely that modern people are thoroughly and habitually dishonest (especially in their public lives, and at work) - it is that they/ we regard many types of truthfulness as actually wicked.
Some of the most hated people in the modern world are those who insist on speaking truth as they honestly understand it, rather than what is politically-expedient. And anyone who tries to be consistently honest in modern Western public life will very soon be in very serious trouble.
Even if you are truthful in private life, even in one sentence or just half a sentence; then you may be denounced, internationally vilified and punished with great severity.
It does not really matter whether you are a Good Person when, deep in your heart, you are devoted to the inversion of Good; and devoted to the point that you will not repent because you have come to regard the wickedness of your heart as virtue. After death, you will reject heaven with visceral loathing, absolutely insist on 'Hell', and join-in on the side of the demonic powers in the spiritual war.
By contrast, a Bad Person who knows the real nature of Good, and repents their sins, is assured of salvation - and of making the post-mortem choice for heaven rather than hell.
In the end it is mostly a matter of choosing sides; and almost everyone in the modern world has chosen to be on the wrong side. Unless this fact changes before they die, they are in severe danger of getting what they have explicitly asked for.
