NO ONE IS SAVED BY WORKS OF LAW

Galatians 2:16 tells us: “for by works of law shall no flesh be justified.” People do get confused about Heaven and Hell. We live in an era where most people are closet Universalists, in that down deep they believe ALL will eventually make it to Heaven. In all my years of ministry, I’ve only once stood by a casket wherein lay someone the family didn’t think was going to Heaven. Most are convinced that we’ll all see each other on the other side. After all, We’re good people, Right?
Some believe that God has a pair of scales and if your good deeds outweigh your bad deeds, then you go to Heaven; if not, you go to Hell, or Purgatory, or get another shot at it in another life. We just can’t accept that our goodness accounts for nothing as far as where we will spend eternity. Scripture is quite clear on this subject. God wants to populate Heaven with people of faith who have trusted His provision, Jesus, for that which we are incapable of attaining on our own. As declared throughout the New Testament, Eternal Life is the GIFT of God! You can’t earn it! Eph. 2:8, 9.
