Do good deeds and be kind to other people

Doing good deeds and helping others are good things.  But doing them will not earn God's forgiveness.  God cannot be bribed by tears, deeds, or good intentions.  He has provided what is required through the death of Jesus Christ.

 

"For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of your own doing;  It is the free gift of God, not of works, lest any man should brag about it."   

Ephesians 2:8-9

-------------------------------------------------

"But to him that does not work for it, but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness."

Romans 4:5

--------------------------------------------------

"But God displayed His love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Romans 5:5
