    Who shall not inherit the kingdom of heaven?

    I am compiling a list. Add or clarify if you have certainty.

    Revelation 22:14-15 KJV

    Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have
    right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates
    into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers,
    and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 KJV

    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?
    Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
    nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves,
    nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall
    inherit the kingdom of God.

    Galatians 5:19-21 KJV

    Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery,
    fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred,
    variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings,
    murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you
    before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such
    things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

    Ephesians 5:3-5 KJV

    But fornications, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not
    be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor
    foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather
    giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean
    person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in
    the kingdom of Christ and of God.

    Hebrews 12:14-17 KJV

    Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall
    see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God;
    lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many
    be defiled; Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau,
    who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that
    afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected:
    for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with

    Those who inherit the kingdom will be those who live righteous lives but they won't inherit it because of how they live. Entrance into the kingdom is a free gift for those who have repented of their sins and put their faith in Christ. Those who do this will also be regenerated and receive the Holy Spirit to give them the power to live as they should. Both the kingdom and the power to live godly lives are gifts that we receive from God and are not things we can earn by our own efforts.
