In the Bible's Old Testament Isaiah the prophet
writes "...all our rightness are as filthy rags..." ( Isa 64:6 ).
that, even our best deeds are tainted with personal pride and sin! Rom 3:23 says "we have all sinned and come short
of the Glory of God." Some have sinned worse than others but we all have enough sin to keep us out of Heaven.
The Apostle Paul says in I Cor 1:14 that he
is glad that he has baptized only a few people. Then in verse 17
says what his mission is; to preach the Gospel. He tells what that gospel is in I Cor 15: 1-4 .
Don't trust anything to save you. Trust only
God. "But God commendeth his love toward us in that,
while we were
yet sinners, Christ died for us." ( Rom 5:8 ).
