What About My Good Works?

What About My Good Works?

Many people believe that God has a balance or a set of scales in heaven. Into one side, He places our bad works; and into the other side, He places our evil works. If our good works outweigh our evil works, we will go to heaven. If our evil works outweigh our good works, we will not go to heaven, at least not immediately.
But that is not what the Bible, which is God's Word, teaches.

What is a good work according to the Bible?

Are You A Good Person?

Are You A Good Person?

The average person thinks he is going to heaven because he is "a good person." But what does that mean, and how "good" does a person need to be to go to heaven?

Jesus was asked once by a rich young ruler, in Mark, chapter 10, "Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" (Mark 10:17).

Jesus had a surprising response, "Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God" (Mark 10:18).

Essentials of Reformed Doctrine: Lesson 5 (“God's Communicable Attributes")

Lesson 5 is "God's Communicable Attributes."

The main subjects covered in this Lesson are:

Part 1: The distinction between incommunicable and communicable attributes; how some of God's attributes can be "communicable;" and God's holiness, righteousness and wisdom.

Part 2: God's communicable attributes continued: God's goodness (His mercy, grace and love).

The LRF runs an adult reformed doctrine class in which we work through the Essentials of Reformed Doctrine catechism booklet published by the PRCA. Below you will find the lesson outlines based on Lesson 5.

Each lesson outline comes as a handy PDF formatted to be printed as a single double-sided page with narrow margins.
