MORAL GOODNESS IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH
Confusion in religion has caused many to withdraw from all religious systems, concluding that just being good morally will be sufficient for eternal life.
In Acts 10 the Inspired Word informs us of an extremely morally good man, a centurion of the Roman army. Cornelius was a devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always (verse 2). But in his own merits he was yet unsaved.
In Acts 11:13-14 Peter recalled that the angel of the Lord had instructed Cornelius to send to Joppa for Simon Peter, " ..who shall tell thee WORDS, whereby thou and all thy house SHALL BE SAVED." It takes the Gospel of Christ and the unsaved person's obedience to produce salvation. There is no salvation outside of Christ. See Heb. 5:8-9.
