If you view it in quantum rather than relative terms it becomes simple. If a single sin separates you from heaven just as much as 100 sins, then how could you enter heaven if say you stole a toothbrush at age 10, or said the lords name in vain at age 15? It's true, you should try to live your life as a good, honest person; but that is not enough to enter into heaven.
From the Bible. Luke 23:42 about the thief (a man who certainly sinned throughout his life) while hanging on a cross next to Jesus.:
 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: "Aren't you the Christ? Save yourself and us!"
 But the other criminal rebuked him. "Don't you fear God," he said, "since you are under the same sentence?  We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong."
 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."
 Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise."
