Though many say “There’s nothing YOU can do; Jesus did it all”, the following verses prove that teaching FALSE.

See also the “God sees your sins” study


John 5:28…  The hour comes when all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,  29  And shall come forth (to be judged); they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.  

  There is no HINT of rewards given AFTER one gets to heaven in this passage! Jesus CLEARLY says that if a person DOES GOOD he will receive eternal life, and if he DOES EVIL he will rise to be damned!   What we DO determines whether we inherit the Kingdom of God or the lake of fire.

(2Cor 5:10)  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Therefore, knowing the terror of the Lord, we persuade men…  (to labor to be accepted of God ~v 9)

Mat 16:27  For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.  

(Ecc 12:14)  For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

Hos 4:9  And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.

Isa 59:18 According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; to the islands He will repay recompense.


Heb 10:30  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongs unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

Job 31:4  Doth not He see my ways, and count all my steps?

If God saw JOB’S every step, why do most pastors claim  that He can’t see all of yours?


(Job 4:8) Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.


(Psa 126:5) They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

(Hos 10:12) Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

(2Co 9:6) But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

(Pro 22:8) He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.

(Gal 6:7) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption ; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Sowing and reaping is a SALVATION issue. Therefore, if any man denies scripture in this, teaching that you are living “under the law” which cannot save anyone, they are preaching another gospel and should be marked, avoided, and left accursed. Rom 16:17,18; Gal 1:8,9. Such a teacher is “proud, knowing nothing”, and we’re commanded to get away from them. 1Tim 6:3-5



Lam 3:64  Render unto them a recompense, O LORD, according to the work of their hands.

Mat 6:12  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

14  For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 

15  But if you don’t forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

2Sam 22:26  With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful, and with the upright man You will show Yourself upright. 

27  With the pure You will show Yourself pure; and with the froward You will show Yourself unsavory. 


Mat 18:23  Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants

24  And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand talents.

25  But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. 

26  The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, “Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all”.

27  Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.

Is there any doubt that this man

WAS SAVED from his debt?

28  But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him about 15 dollars (which, in those days, could buy 10 donkeys): and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, “Pay me what you owe me.” 

29  And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, “Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.” 

30  And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. 

31  So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and told unto their lord all that was done. 

32  Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O you wicked servant, I forgave you all that debt, because you asked me to: 

33  Should you not also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on you?

We are RESPONSIBLE and ACCOUNTABLE to forgive. God knows if we have or not, and will judge us according to what we do.

34  And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. 

35  So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.  

If a person who WAS saved (according to the teaching on salvation by many modern churches) ever fails to overcome; backslides, departs from the faith; if he hardens his heart and forsakes God, so that Jesus spews him out of His mouth – that same church will contradict their own ‘once saved always saved” teaching, and claim that he was “never really saved to begin with”. But the undeniable fact is, this passage says that the man who was called a “wicked servant”, who was “delivered to the tormentors”, HAD been forgiven of his past debt. He WAS saved, but after having been forgiven for his great, insurmountable debt, he chose not to forgive another man even a small debt. So does this agree with the teaching that says “All your past, PRESENT AND FUTURE sins are ALREADY FORGIVEN”, or the one that claims that “You CANNOT be judged according to your works, since you’ve ALREADY BEEN JUDGED” ? Or how about this one: “God doesn’t see your sins; all He sees is Jesus”?

Does Jesus in Matt 18 teach any one of those three things?


Mar 11:25  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses

26  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. 

Rom 14:10  But why do you judge your brother? or why do you set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ

11  For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 

12  So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.  

Are they all only miserable, boring, picky accountants who teach that God will judge all men according to what they’ve done, and who teach that we will all reap what we sow?

Ecc 11:9  Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth, and walk in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes: but know this, that for all these things God will bring you into judgment.  

So FLEE youthful lusts!

Eze 18:24  But when the righteous turns away from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.

Isa 3:14  The LORD will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses. 

Psa 94:4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.

6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.

7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?

9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?

10 He that chastises the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teaches man knowledge, shall not he know?

11 The LORD knows the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

13  For he shall have judgment without mercy upon those who had shown no mercy; and mercy rejoices against judgment.

(Eze 17:19) Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live, surely mine oath that he hath despised, and my covenant that he hath broken, even it I will recompense upon his own head.
