No, not even if you wanted to. Why? Because to go to heaven you have to be perfect.
More perfect than Ivory soap which is 99.44% pure soap.

In fact the Bible says the more you try to work your way to heaven the more you owe!!

Notice this verse: Rom 4:4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

The more you try to earn grace the more it cost you.

You cannot earn what God wants to give away. He wants to give you eternal life.

You cannot do enough good works, prayers, good deeds or such to buy it. It is only available to those who will believe the gospel.

Rom 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

Those preachers, priest and popes that are telling you to work for salvation are telling you a lie.

Why not get back to the Bible and believe the Word Of God not the word of men.

By Pastor Doug Dodd s.b.g.

I had to answer this question. No one can earn their way into heaven. They don't have to, Jesus already did it for us.  Cheesy
(Eph.2:8-9) we are saved by grace through faith.

God bless,
bluelake

Are You GOING TO HEAVEN?

Reminder...

Is It Right?

1.To tell sinners they can merit the favor of God by doing good works?

2.To extract money from people using the tithe?

3.To tell people they cannot understand the Bible?

4.To comfort sinners with thoughts of purgatory?

5.To teach people that water baptism can save them from eternal judgement?

6.To teach seeking saints from a corrupt text like the NIV?

7.To teach infant baptism?

8.To teach Calvinism?

9.To believe in annihilation?

10.To teach someone today can be a part of the 144,000?

11.To teach that saved people are "spiritual Israel"?

No, none of the above and hundreds more are not right according to the Bible but are practiced everyday... Christ will come again, what will he find you doing?

Romans 8:31-39

I'm pretty suspicious of the NIV

You have every reason to be. The interesting thing is that the translators of the NIV have revealed their agenda in their Preface.

They claim it is an "eclectic" text and their choice of readings is according to the "sound principles of textual criticism" [which in fact were proven to be very unsound by men such as Burgon, Scrivener, Hoskier, Hills, and many others]. It is simply a cover-up for the corrupt Westcott-Hort/Nestle-Aland Text.

They they also tell us that they have used some of the most corrupt documents as supplementary to their foundation -- including the writings of heretics.

Further, the NIV is based upon the translation principle of "dynamic equivalence", which means the translators have paraphrased the Bible, and a careful comparison with the KJV will show how they have not only tampered with the text but actually perverted certain truths to mean the opposite of what they really are.

Let's take just one example -- Romans 8:28.

KJV -- "...All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose". This teaches us that because God is sovereign, He makes all things "work together for good" to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose [the redeemed].

NIV -- "... in all things God works for the good of those who love him".  This teaches us that God becomes the worker, instead of the one who makes all things work together for good through His divine power and sovereignty.

First of all, THOSE ARE NOT THE WORDS IN THE TEXT.

Secondly, THAT IS NOT THE TRUTH THAT IS BEING TAUGHT.

Thirdly, since God allows afflictions and tribulations to come into the lives of His saints [and that is the reason for this verse being there] GOD IS NOT WORKING FOR THE GOOD IN ALL THINGS.  Rather, He is making all things -- good and bad --  "work together for good".  There is a difference.

So we see how the NIV changes the truths of the Bible.

Since we are talkingn about Bibles.

I also have a kjv, which i sometimes use just for reading for serious study i use:  The New Oxford Annotated Bibles(NRSV) With the apocrypha. College edition.  It was compiled  by experts in each book and the footnotes do not reflect any protestant or catholic view. They put the veres in the context in which it was written.

I'm with you on the tithe.  There have been times when I only had five dollars and I would give two, not out of guilt, but because I just wanted to.

But, I always felt giving tithe shouldn't be because they used to give 10 percent, I felt it as giving for the work necessary for the church and it's people.  

     Thank you.    Grin

God let's us know, He loves us so much, He sees our heart.

Quote
Rev 22
18  ..........If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

The fact is the NIV, is partially a result of the Wescott & Hort 1881 work, the NIV, adds words and omits words, some without editors notes in the margins and some with editors notes.

This verse refers to the Book of Revelation not the Bible in its entirety.  You cannot just apply a verse anyway and anywhere you want to.

It is wrong to add or remove from the word of God but you have not shown that Wescott & Hort has added any words.  You have only shown that relative to the Textus Receptus they have additional words, that could equally mean that the TR leaft words out and we all know that the TR came from very questionable sources, some were not even in the original languages.

No the problem in the NIV results from the bad translation not from the text it was translated from.
