The Religious Person
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
The religious person, who tries to work their way to heaven by doing good works or by obeying the Old Testament Law, can not earn their way to Heaven. We see it is only by accepting the gift of God!
“For there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:22b-23
Once again we have added one more group to those that have fallen short of the glory of God. All sinners are the same in God’s eyes… there is no difference!
