Not By The Law, But By Faith

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
Galatians 5:6b

Faith is what matters. Not the laws or rules that are put in place in regard to religion. We won't have a place in Heaven unless we have faith in God. Unless we believe in Jesus and ask that he take away our sins.

Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.” Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
Galatians 3:12-14
