One of my pet peeves is that people think that they can pave their own way to heaven. They feel that if they are a "good" person (definition varies widely, often including fornicators and adulterers) that this means they will get into heaven without even bothering to put the Lord first. (Note that the definition of a "good" person is always set by them, not by God.) As for obeying God's commandments, that's just optional. They can do their own thing, please themselves, and still claim salvation. Failing that, they figure Jesus loves everybody so much that he'll just open the pearly gates wide (even though he said the way to heaven was narrow).

By way of illustration: I recently got chewed out on a supposedly Christian blog for quoting the Lord's viewpoint on homosexuality (See Lev. 18:22). This is because I was being close-minded enough to take the Lord seriously. I was accused of being hateful and all kinds of other nasty things. If you agree with Jesus, be prepared to be slandered by all those who think that they can dictate to him how things should be run. They would rather have a dialog about it in which they all agree that there is no such thing as wickedness as long as you feel like doing it.
