One thing the most hardened atheist and the most self-righteous religionist have in common is Christless moralism.

Just ask most atheists if they're moral, and they'll insist that they are.
Yet, moralism without Christ is just sin.

God does not accept your "good works" if you despise the Son of God.
You need CHRIST, or you MUST be CONDEMNED.

Only the righteousness of Christ, imputed (charged) to your account,
makes you acceptable before a just and holy God.

So, take your Christless moralism, and throw it out in the trash, and repent, and believe on Jesus Christ!

In Matthew 16, Christ asked his disciples this question:
"Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?"

And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets."

And he said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"

And Simon Peter said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

Then Jesus said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven."

No one is saved by their "good works".
"Salvation is of the LORD!" (Jonah 2:9)
It's by GRACE, through FAITH in JESUS CHRIST!

The Apostle Paul said:

"Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works:

"Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven,
And whose sins are covered;

Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin."

(Romans 4:4-8)

Paul said:

"If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so:
circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee; concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;
that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead."
(Philippians 4:3-11)

Don't be deceived by "the Social Gospel".
Your "good works" don't mean a thing.
If you don't have faith in Christ, they're "dead works"!

Who is CHRIST?
That's the issue.
If he's not your Lord and Savior, then he will judge you by the strict justice of the Law.

For God "has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness" by Christ, whom he has raised from the dead. (Acts 17:31)
