1 Corinthians 15:20-22 But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
For all of our good social connections, and for all of our best intentions we will ultimately stand alone before Jesus at the final judgement. It is then when a remembering of all of our sins whether of commission, or omission will be held up for us to see. In that moment we will understand just exactly why and how we are judged. If we have never come to Jesus to ask for His forgiveness, if we have come too late to the realization that He alone holds the keys of eternity in His hands what recourse will we then have? Many “self-satisfying” ideas have paraded themselves as theology concerning this moment. The “everyone will be saved” camp have made a bet they will surely lose.
The “works” that we are to undertake in this world are to follow Jesus. Mark 1 16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.19 When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. 20 Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.
