11 Places in Romans Where Saint Paul Says We Get into Heaven or Hell Based on Works We Do or Don't Do

Romans 3:28 says "For we consider that a person is justified by faith apart from works of the law."  This verse was twisted by Martin Luther, and he also added a word "alone", rendering the passage "For we consider that a person is justified by faith alone, apart from works of the law."  Most Protestant denominations have now taken that passage, and made it one of the foundational passages for their break from the Roman Catholic Church.

So I throught it would be helpful to look at the most clear cut passages from Romans where Saint Paul says our entrance to Heaven or Hell IS based on the works we perform.

1:21 “for although they knew God they did not accord him glory as God or give him thanks.”


2:6  “who will repay everyone according to his works"


2:7 “eternal life to those who seek glory, honor, and immortality through perseverance in good works”


2:10 “There will be glory, honor, and peace for everyone who does good”


2:13 “For it is not those who hear the law who are just in the sight of God; rather, those who observe the law will be justified”


2:16 “God will judge people’s hidden works through Christ Jesus.”


10:9 “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”


10:10 “one confesses with the mouth and so is saved.”


10:13 “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”


13:2 “whoever resists authority opposes what God has appointed, and those who oppose it will bring judgment upon themselves.”


13:8 “Owe nothing to anyone, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.”
