Do you know someone who believes what many false religions believe, that if our good works outweigh our bad works we will be saved. Debunk their belief with this tract.
Back of Card:
Many people think they will get to Heaven if their good works outweigh their bad works. Many manmade religions teach this. The Bible (God’s Word) does not. God says that our good works cannot save us. This is because we have sinned. We have broken God’s law, and there is nothing you and I can do to ‘make up’ for it. We cannot bribe the Judge with our good works. Have you ever lied? Looked with lust? Hated someone? Stolen? Taken God’s name in vain? If you have done these things one time, then you are a liar, an adulterer (Matt. 5:28), a murderer (1 John 3:15), a thief, and a blasphemer. God will not overlook your crimes. You are deserving of God’s wrath in His eternal prison of Hell. But this is not what God desires for you. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth to be a sacrifice for your sins. He died for you and was raised from His tomb by God so you can have the hope of eternal life. If you believe this message (the Gospel), submit to Jesus Christ, and turn from your sins, God will raise you out of the hopeless state of death you are in, wash away your sins, and give you new life (Ephesians 2:1-10; Romans 6:1-7; Colossians 2:11-14).
