Santa Claus Salvation

God is not Santa Clause.  He doesn’t weigh our good works against our bad to determine whether we will go to heaven or not.  Before our salvation our righteousness is worthless.

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.  – Isaiah 64:6

After salvation our good works have nothing to do with keeping our salvation.

I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.  – Galatians 2:21

Salvation is a free gift of God that I’m so glad I didn’t have to earn, because I could not.
