It is unfortunate that so many people are confused or misdirected by the truth. To state that a person will inherit the kingdom of God, only by the good deeds they perform during their lifetime is nothing more than an ignorant remark. The words could not be spoken any clearer. Jesus died for our sins so that we may be seen sinless in the eyes of the father. You may not want to hear or accept this reality, and that's your prerogative, but misinforming others is blasphemous.

I don't blame you for being misguided. You are not the first. Just take the time to truly read the Bible and become informed. Even the Israelites during Jesus' days were culpable or weary in the teachings of Christ our Lord.

"For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son."
