If we have two groups of people:
The first group, composed of people who obey God, keep the Commandments and feed the hungry, clothe the naked and do good deeds.
The second group, fornicators, adulterers, liars, and all around ne’er do wells.
Which group will have the right to the tree of life? (Rev 22:14-15).
Don’t get me wrong. We are not saved by the works. But only those who do the works will be saved.
Someone might ask, what if someone does nothing good and nothing bad, but claims to have faith in Christ? Scripture is absolutely clear about that person, he is condemned (Matt 25:31-46).
Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit…..6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
