1. A God exists who created the world and is sovereign over it. As the king he expects all people to submit to His rule in their lives.
2. God does want people to be good and nice, but He also wants them to be holy, just and righteous in all of their thoughts and deeds. God says, "Be holy because I am holy." (1 Peter 1:16) He also says that if a person keeps the whole law and yet violates any part of it, he is guilty of the whole thing." (James 2:10)
3. The central goal of life is to glorify God -- that means to make him look good in every way possible. (1 Corinthians 10:31)
4. God is involved in every aspect of life and he wants His creature to acknowledge that by being thankful to Him for all that he has provided and to worship Him supremely at all times.
5. Only perfect people go to heaven. And since no one is perfect, all are under the condemnation of God. However, God came to this earth as a man in the person of Jesus Christ and took upon himself the condemnation of God at the cross. As a result, anyone who believes God about this and trusts Christ's substitution on his behalf is granted the righteousness that Christ had as a replacement for his own personal guilt. (2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:5)
The religion of moralistic, therapeutic deism is a far cry from the Biblical view that I have just described.
