People can earn this?

People like to earn money and things. Most parents teach the kids to work hard. I believe this. We need to work hard but we can not earn salvation.

The Church of Jesus Christ and Latter-day Saints believe this. Salvation comes by works. All people will spend eternity on some level of a multistory heaven. The level will be determined by the scope of each person's good work.

The Bible teaches this. Salvation is a free gift provided by the grace (unmerited love) of God for all who believe and accept His plan.

Ephesians 2:8-9

 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.



John 12:26

 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.



1 John 3:1-2

 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.



John 14:1-3

 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
