The old way of preaching was to do good works to earn a place in heaven.
Otherwise you would go to hell.
This fear-based message is not what Jesus taught.
It is the carrot and stick religion of the conservative establishment whose motivation is to control the masses.
Jesus taught to love God and love your neighbor.
Salvation is a free gift from God not something you have to earn.
And while much good has been done by the Churches in the past this fear undermines the central message of Love.
So overcome your fear and your lack of faith and love with all your heart.
Good works will follow.
