2nd Nephi : 30
The beginning verses of this scripture were the ones of focus today.

For the past 2 chapters (or more), the Lord has been chastising the Gentiles, should they fall into the pride cycle and not repent.

The beginning 2 verses of this chapter basically says, "even though the Gentiles were bad, don't get on your high-horse, thinking you're any better."

It then goes on to explain that God accepts those who repent and follow the Gospel of Christ.  That's the simple of it.  Doesn't matter where you're from, or where you're going, or who your parents are, or how much money you make, or what your profession is, or how many friends you have.

It does matter, however, how closely you live the commandments according to your understanding through the Spirit.

That, my friends, I believe is the most important guage on how close you are to going to heaven, should the spiritual veil between this world and the next decide to close.
