Then again, what good work did the thief on the cross do?
He asked for mercy, if that is considered a work.
Anyway, basic Protestants don’t believe you get to sin all you please and go to heaven anyway.
We believe you must mortify sin. We just don’t believe that mortifying sin saves you.
Ah! To be that good thief!
That’s the trick, if only I can be so lucky. God’s mercy is powerful and I can attest to it. It is almost the Feast of Divine Mercy. April 11th I think. I pray it every day.
