Will your good deeds outweigh the bad?

If our good deeds outweigh our bad deeds, will we enter heaven? Many people think so but what does God think?

1.  God cannot be bribed with good deeds

Deuteronomy 10:17 “For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of
lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and
takes no bribe.”

2.  Any bad deed can keep one out of heaven

James 2:10 “For whoever keeps the whole law buy fails in one point has
become accountable for all of it.”

3.  Therefore, most people will not enter heaven

Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way
is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the
gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are
few.”
