Racial Segregation is NOT Ordained or Designed by God

Racial segregation is an idea promoted by some so-called 'christians' who I will not call Christians, who think that the Bible not only permits, but mandates racial segregation. They think that anyone who disagrees with them on their pet doctrine of racial segregation is some kind of modern liberal, simply for refusing to compromise with them on this issue, even accusing them of being responsible for the evils of wicked vile and perverted agendas which fight for so-called "equality", such as feminist movement, homosexual movement, and transgender movement.

Being against racial segregation does not mean that one believes in the humanistic conception of so-called "equality" which purports that people must be on the same level of various earthly measures, such as wealth, power, or education to be deemed to be treated in a way that is acceptable.  

Being against racial segregation as a follower of Christ is to recognise that all human beings are created in the image of God, and therefore loved by God, who desires none to perish, and is compassionate to all. Opposing racial segregation and opposing feminism, liberalism, the homosexual movement and transgender movement are not contradictory, but in fact, consistent.

Genesis 1:27 says "so God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." God created humankind in his own image, making them male and female. All human beings are endowed by with the dignity God, making it wrong to commit sins directed against them.  No sin is more or less wrong when directed against some people, compared to another. The same sin directed against a person of one ethnicity is equally wrong when directed against another person of a different ethnicity. 

Racial segregationists, in seeking to draw distinctions between people of different ethnicities based on ethnicities attack the very humanity of people of other ethnicities, by denying the humanity of people of other ethnicities. They may claim that sin against other ethnicities is wrong, but deep down inside in their hearts, they view sin directed towards people of other ethnicities are less wrong or more justifiable. That is itself to deny the God-given humanity of other people, on the basis of their ethnicity. This is because their thinking in separating people by ethnicity is itself to treat people as different owing to ethnicity, being indifferent towards injustices they face or the oppression they are subjected to.

Do not be mistaken, such people have a low view of people of ethnicities they consider inferior, and therefore a low view of God. In denying the full humanity of people of other ethnicities, they do not and cannot truly wholeheartedly preach the true Gospel of Jesus Christ in love, out of concern for their Salvation. This is evident in their extremely strong focus on non-essential, that is, non-salvific doctrines, usually to the point of fanatical obsession. Such people typically, if not always, neglect salvation doctrine, if they even mention them at all. Even when they do, it is simply stated casually by them, just so that they can look Christian in appearance when they are not. 

Such people will inevitably deny what the Scriptures say that God wants all to to saved:

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:3-4).

By 'all', the Bible, all human beings, regardless of ethnicity, culture, sex, age, political affiliation, professed religion, nationality, occupation and social status and socio-economic background. 

Racism and racial segregation, which is simply racism attempted to be justified under whatever clean guise it is masqueraded under, have a demonic spirit behind them. Anyone who is a racist is under the demonic spirit of racism. 

This evil spirit seeks to justify racial segregation and racism by the use of the Old Testament. Racial segregationists tend to be people who love to use the Old Testament to justify their evil and perverted stances on all kinds of issues, and are extremely ignorant and unable, especially in relation to what are essential and non-essential issues, and how the New Testament supersedes the Old Testament. For Hebrews 9:16-17 says: 

For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

Despite their apparent righteousness, and even prophetic guise, as manifest by their audacity to boldly call out the wickedness of their culture or society, and are correct in doing so, they are full of their own wickedness and vile perversions. 

In particular, they take pleasure in using Genesis 11 to justify racial segregation, when that is not what Genesis 11 is prescribing. Genesis 11 is simply a description of how God separated the people at Shinar, not because He wanted to separate people of different ethnicities, but to ensure that the generation of humanity who wanted to build the Tower of Babel would not reach the heavens to overthrow God's Sovereignty over the earth. 

If racial segregation is prescribed by God, then why was it God's will for Moses, a Jew to marry a Cushite woman, or for Ruth, a Moabite, to marry a Boaz, who was a Jew? Even in the Old Testament, racial segregation is clearly not ordained by God. So, under the New Testament, it is all the more clear that it is not ordained by God or by His design as Galatians 3:28 indicates. 

If racial segregation is prescribed by God under the New Testament, why was it God's will that Apostle Paul, a Jew be Apostle to the Gentiles (Ephesians 3:1)? Why then did God will it that Philip the Evangelist preach the Gospel to the Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8:26-40)? Why would God use Timothy, who was half-Jew and half-Greek, to do the work of an evangelist, and be a minister (2 Timothy 4:5), if racial segregation is what the Bible prescribes?

Do not be deceived. The false doctrine of racial segregation is a doctrine of demons, which seeks to deny the full humanity of all people, effectively implying that God does not desire people of certain ethnic groups to not be saved. It is an extremely dangerous and vile doctrine which must be exposed and strongly rebuked. It has no place in the true Church whatsoever.

The True Christian faith is Universal. Christ Broke Down all Ethnic and Cultural Barriers so that His Followers are One in Christ

Many unbelievers in various parts of the world think that Christianity is an ethnocentric religion, both in the western and non-western world. This is in large part owing to the presentation of the history of Christianity as primarily a western one, where the western world is presented as good and righteous, and non-western world presented as bad and full of darkness. However, Christianity has had strong historical roots outside of Europe since at least the Middle Ages, if not before in places such as  Africa and Middle East. 

In recent history, Christianity has been twisted and used by ethnonationalists in the west to justify their supremacy, who typically love to target islam for criticism, not because they are righteous, but because it allows them to justify their supposed moral superiority to the non-western world. This twisted version of 'christianity' these sick people have created in not true Christianity at all. 

They are liars who create a stumbling block for the unbelievers who reject Christianity because of its supposed racism or ethnonationalism. They are in dire trouble as they will be held accountable for blaspheming God and causing people to stumble and end up in Hell, owing to their vile heresy. If you are an ethnocentric or ethnonationalist of any kind, you need to repent of your sins, for daring to think you are superior because of your ethnicity!

Do not be deceived. Ethnonationalism is racialist pride in one's nation, justified by its so-called 'superiority'. The very belief in one's own superiority is itself pride, as it is of the spirit of thinking oneself being above others, because of one's ethnicity. 

Ethnonationalism is the brother of racialist supremacy, be it white supremacy, black supremacy,or yellow supremacy, without realising it. Such pride is one of the most vile sins one could commit, despite it not involving actual murder, adultery, pornography or those gross sins. 

It is stench in the nostrils of God for it is to elevate oneself above others, which is always a sinful and wicked thing. It is absolutely against what the Bible commands us in being humble, and hating pride (Proverbs 3:34, 6:17; James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5).

One such manifestation of racialist pride is feeling comfortable with only people of one's ethnic group, and feeling uncomfortable with people of other ethnic groups, because of their ethnicities. It is indeed very subtle. Indeed, many will try to simply justify this by saying that it is because their understand people of their own ethnicity better and their ways. While it may be true that people may find it hard to interact and communicate with people of other ethnicities, this inability or difficult experienced in interacting and communicating with people of other ethnicities is different from the feeling of discomfort in the presence of people of other ethnicities, because of their ethnicity.

The feeling of discomfort towards comes from the belief in one's mind that people of other ethnicities are a 'different' species of people from oneself, a failure to recognise their humanity as the same as one's own humanity. Such discomfort is the manifestation of pride in thinking oneself more human than people of different ethnicities, or in failing to recognise them as fellow human beings created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). This is itself to violate the Creation of God in one's own heart, and despise the Creator, God Himself, in refusing to fully acknowledge the humanity of all human beings.

Christianity is a universal faith, for which all are invited, regardless of ethnicity. No ethnicity is more or less called by God to be saved. Jesus died no less for the sins of Africans, or Middle Easterners than for the westerners. 

All have sinned and have equal standing before God as guilty sinners. Whether one has committed more sins or less sins, one is guilty, for guilty is guilty. Ethnicity is totally immaterial as to the level of one's sinfulness. As Apostle Paul said in addressing the Jews who thought themselves superior, 

What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

(Romans 3:9-13).

If you have sinned, that is, broken God's Moral Law, by stealing, lying, lusting after people, fornicating, committed adultery or taken God's Name in vain, the just wrath of God is against you for your sins. You deserve an eternity in Hell for such sins. But for God so loved the world, He gave His Begotten Son so that whoever shall believe in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). He does not want you to perish. You need to turn from you sins and put your faith in Christ and Christ alone to escape from the just wrath of God. If you do so, He will give you the free gift of Salvation, and eternal life. Do it today while you still have time. 

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

(Galatians 3:26-29).

Make No Mistake, Ethnonationalism is Anti-Christian

The Bible warns that many will be deceived in the Last Days (Matthew 24:11; 1 Timothy 4:1). Indeed, there are many professing Christians who endorse or support the alt-right movement, thinking they are 'righteous' simply because they oppose islam.

Just because someone opposes one evil or heresy, does not mean they are righteous.  To think the someone is righteous simply because they oppose one anti-Christ religion, such as islam is extremely foolish. The alt-right opposes islam, not because it is an anti-christ religion, but because it opposes "western civilisation" which they are oh so proud of. They are proud of their so-called "western civilisation" and think that it is their ethnicity which makes the "white race" 'great'. That is ethnonationalism, pride in one's ethnicity, and in one's nation for being of that ethnicity.

This goes against the faith in Christ which is universal, as is clearly evident in Romans 10:11-13:  

For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

God desires all, whether Jew or Gentile, black or white, Asian, African, Arab, Persian, Indian, Pacific Islander, or Indigenous Australian, or whatever other ethnic group to be saved, for He loved the whole world that He gave His only Son Jesus Christ to die for their sins (John 3:16). God does not love any ethnic group, or count any ethnic group more or less superior than another. 

Ethnonationalism thinks that one's own ethnic group is superior and more favoured or blessed by God. This is a heresy and anyone who is even sympathetic to ethnonationalism is a heretic who is headed for Hell. 

Make no mistake. Ethnonationalism is anti-Christian.

The Evils of the Doctrine of Equality is Not an Excuse for Ethnocentrism of Ethnonationalism. Do not be deceived

The concept of rights, equality, and liberty are all false doctrines. There is no such thing as anyone's rights, equality or liberty. That is clear.

However, some  in response to these evils, and being rightly concerned about such evils, seek to fight such evils by another evil. They fight the evils of equality by promoting ethnonationalism and ethnocentrism. They being so worried about the evils of the doctrines of equality seek to promote ethnonationalism and ethnocentrism. This is indeed the devil's trap, where he uses people standing for two different evils to fight each other, and deceive people into thinking that does not support one side, such as equality, one must support the other, such as ethnonationalism.

These people typically love to use the Old Testament verses to justify racism. They love to intimidate people with their so-called Bible 'knowledge' about the Old Testament and its implications for today. 

Such people also love to point out how various evil movements, such as feminism, the homosexual agenda, and now the transgender agenda, as well as religious pluralism, are all the result of opposing ethnonationalism and ethnocentrism, that is, racism. That is an extremely asinine argument. 

Firstly, race and sex cannot be equated as the same things by which the same principles apply. They are not totally different from each other, in that people of all races and both sexes are human beings created in the image of God and loved by God, with God-given dignity: "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them" (Genesis 1:27). The entire family of humankind, irrespective of ethnicity or skin colour, was perpetuated from Adam (Genesis 1:28). 

Yet, race and sex are different enough such that they are not to be equated together on many counts.  While there is a such thing as different roles assigned to man and woman respectively, and distinctions between the sexes, as designed by God, there is no such thing as 'racial' roles, differing authority of different ethnicities, or distinction by design between different ethnicities. None. Galatians 3:28 makes it clear that there is no such distinction between different ethnicities.

Opposing ethnocentrism or ethnonationalism does not make one a feminist, whether secular or 'christian' feminist, as these 'christian' ethnonationalists make it out to be. Nor does it even lay the groundwork for feminism as these heretics are so worried and anxious about. They argue that saying that Galatians 3:28 eradicates distinction between ethnicities is to do away with the gender roles as prescribed by the Bible. 

Such argument is a flawed one, as ethnicity and gender cannot be equated. Simply because one argues that Galatians 3:28 eradicates distinctions between different ethnicities, does not means one is arguing that it eradicates the distinct roles of man and woman respectively. Galatians 3:28 refers to worldly distinctions made between people of different ethnicities, social status and sex, based on human measures, as opposed to God's measures. It does not pertain to distinctions by design. So, equating the treatment of Galatians 3:28 as eradicating distinctions between different ethnicities to the eradication of God-prescribed gender roles is wrong.

Secondly, the use of the doctrine of equality to justify evil does not make ethnonationalism or ethnocentrism justified. It is tragic this even needs to be said, but there are professing Christians out there who point to evil movements based on false equality to justify ethnonationalism and ethnocentrism. It is one thing to support equality in a sense in the context of ethnicity. Such equality is that there is only one race being the human race, created in the image of God. It is another to use this noble and pure concept of equality and pervert it into a false, humanistic and demonic notion of equality used to support feminism, the homosexual agenda, transgender agenda, and religious pluralism.

Not surprisingly, they are typically white supremicists who believe in western superiority and cannot even acknowledge to the slightest the evils that the west has committed against the non-western world. They are so blind to the evils the west has committed that they assume that all the problems in the west are caused by anyone but the west itself. The most obvious evidence of this thinking is their simplistic assumption that all problems in the west are caused by immigrants, especially muslim immigrants. They target muslim immigrants, just because they oppose them ideologically, culturally and politically. 

They love to point out how wicked the liberals, feminists and multiculturalists are. But they themselves are at least just as wicked, and most dishonest about their wickedness than these progressives.  This is not to praise or give credit to these evil progressives, but they are more honest about their wickedness. They simply state their evil stance on issues of morality without trying to hid it. 

These supposed ethnonationalist conservative 'christians', however, justify their racism, by saying that because people pervert equality in dignity to support evil agenda, they need to support ethnonationalism to be righteous. They claim they are not racist, but rather, are seeking to 'fight evil', all while promoting evils themselves. They affirm on the surface all the right stands, but seek to justify evil as well as such righteousness, while negates all their righteousness, for light and darkness, righteousness and wickedness have nothing in common (2 Corinthians 6:14). As long as there is some darkness or wickedness in the midst of light or righteousness, there can be no such light or righteousness. 

Do not be deceived. Ethnationalism or ethnocentrism is racism. It is make worldly distinctions between people based on their ethnicity, measuring them according to human standards. There is no excuse or justification for racism whatsoever.

Ethnocentricism is of the spirit of Hatred and Pride

Ethnocentrism, or racism, is the idea that one's ethnicity makes one superior to others. It is an extremely subtle mindset which so many people are under but do not realise. It manifests in all kinds of ways. One such way it manifests is the belief that violence done by one ethnic group against another is justified, but violence done by another ethnic group is always wrong. 

Ethnocentrism is a vile worldly mindset. It is entirely contrary to the teaching of the Bible that "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:28). The distinctions which determine the superiority of one ethnicity, sex or social-economic status are gone in Christ. For all in Christ are in Christ who does not view any person as superior or inferior to another. 

All people are sinners before God, and nothing but sinners, unless they recognise their sin before God, turn from their sins, and place their faith in Christ alone. If you are not a Christian, you are nothing, but a sinner before God, no matter how much money, status, possessions, respect, or power you have. 

If you are not a Christian, you need to humble yourself, and turn from your sins against God, such as lying, stealing, taking God's name in vain, fornication, adultery, and jealousy. Know that Jesus Christ died for your sins and took the punishment you deserve, and place your faith in Jesus Christ, so that God can wash away your sins. You broke God's Moral Law, Jesus paid your fine, so if you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, God can dismiss His case against you.

Racism is of the spirit of pride, which leads to jealousy. It manifests in a fear or a discomfort towards people of other ethnicities becoming stronger politically, economically, culturally, financially, or socially, because of their ethnicity. Such discomfort is not a righteous or godly fear, but a belief that one is being threatened by another ethnicity because of their growing success or strength.

Much of racism does not manifest in outright hatred, but rather, more subtle forms of hatred, such as evil suspicion. Such suspicion suspects not because of anything wrong or sinful that object of that suspicion has done, but rather, suspects owing to a hatred of the person who it is is directed towards.

Ethnocentrism is a vile sin, a manifestation of hatred and pride, which causes nothing but division, envy and jealousy.

The Evils of Ethno-Nationalism

The Bible tells us the in the Last Days, there will be the rise in false doctrines and teachings (1 Timothy 4:1). Such false doctrines are indeed rampant as may be currently observed. The rapid degeneration into all kinds of wickedness being treated as not only acceptable, but normal and right will only get worse. 

One such evil doctrine that is subtly creeping into the Church is ethno-nationalism. It is often thought that everyone except for a very insignificant minority in modern society denounces racism or ethno-nationalism in all forms. However, that is simply not true.

Ethno-nationalism is rampant in the so-called 'progressive' west, like in America and many parts of Europe, include in Scandinavia. This is baffle some who think that ethno-nationalism belongs to a bygone era, and has no place in progressive societies. That is true in the sense that ethnic pride as a cultural norm and societal system was a defining feature of most if not all ancient pagan societies. Modern society is indeed progressive, in that it is progressing towards more paganism, with a more cosmopolitan face.

There are some who profess Christ who say that ethno-nationalism is not only not evil, but ordained by God.  They use Genesis 11 where God confused the language of humanity and scattered them (Genesis 11:6-9) to argue that it is by God's design, just as gender roles are by God's design, that people of different ethnicities or 'races' to be segregated from each other.

They argue that because God separated the people into different nations, it is ordained by God that people of different nations do not mix around, whether it be by forming communities, families, or nations together. This appears to be a very convincing explanation, but it a very serious twisting of Scripture.

There is no reference to separation in accordance to ethnicities or 'races' whatsover, but rather by language. It is to ensure that people could not communicate together to build a tower to the heavens. Furthermore, the purpose of the separation was to ensure people would not unite together against God, not to ensure separate bloodlines of people.

So, beware of those who use Old Testament descriptives, and attempt to apply as prescriptives. It is such methodology of interpreting Scripture where all kinds of perverse theology can be made up to justify all kinds of evil agendas. 

Ethno-nationalism is racism, plain and simply. It is the belief that one ethnicity or 'race' is superior to another. It is manifestation of pride, hatred and outright foolishness. It is the hatred of God, as it is the hatred of others, and the refusal to treat another people as a human being made in the image of God with equal dignity, owing to his or her ethnicity. Ethno-nationalism, however, one dresses it up, is a sin and always a sin.

To Hell with ethno-nationalism!

The Smugness of Being Self-satisifed in Having One's Needs Sufficiently Met

Many in the modern Church in the west are smug behind their wealth. That includes not just those with large houses,  high levels of disposable income, and high-paying jobs. No, includes the many who do not consider themselves rich, but have a house to live in with electricity with a job, or who receive government assistance for the basic needs. Many of such people are just as proud in their hearts as those with large houses, much disposable income and high-paying jobs.

Such people often do not realise that they are trusting in mammon, as opposed to God. A person trusts one or the other (Matthew 6:24). 

They focus on long-term financial planning to ensuring that they and their families needs will be met, instead of simply trusting in God. They look forward to simply enjoying their "retirement", as opposed to working to advance in the Kingdom of God and do good works. They simply want to enjoy spending their life savings in old age, instead of giving their extra money or wealth to the needy, and impoverished. 

Such aspirations are vile manifestations of the love of mammon. They are manifest examples of smugness that many in the west, including the professing Christians, have because of their needs being sufficiently met. They do not even bother to understand the hardship of those who are poor or impoverished, because of their smug comfort.

Indeed, many who are trying to enter the Kingdom of Heaven will not be able to (Luke 13:24). These people who Jesus was referring to are the religious people who not only claimed the Name of Jesus, but who ate and drank in His presence (Luke 13:25-27). They are people who assumed that they are true followers of Jesus and were familiar with Him:

Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
(Luke 13:24-27).

The reason is that many who try to enter the narrow gate fail is because of a lack of true believing faith in Jesus Christ as Luke 13:18-24 demonstrates: 

Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God?
It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.
Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

It was not that these people who will not be saved in the end were necessarily those who practiced gross sin like fornication, adultery, sorcery and drunkness, while professing Christ. It is not necessarily even that they simply professed Christ but were not very zealous in their professed walk. No, they were people who fellowshiped with Jesus and listened to His teachings: We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets (Luke 13:26). They are people who others would reasonably think to be a serious Biblically-sound Christian, owing to their appearance of righteousness and knowledge of Jesus' teaching, except that they were not true followers of Christ.

A true follower of Christ is he or she who simply and absolutely trusts in Christ for all things, without fear. He or she is like a helpless child who simply trusts and obeys Jesus Christ without doubting or questioning His teaching or promises for even a moment. He or she does not seek his or her own way, or do anything independently of Christ. He or she is humble in realising that only by trusting in Jesus and Jesus alone can he or she truly be saved. Such is true saving faith which not only saves one from the just wrath of God, but enables on to do good works for Christ. Without works, one has dead faith (James 2:14-26).

In contrast, the mammonised professing Christians are those who are full of double-minded, wanting both the ways of the world , and the ways of Christ, seeking that the word offers, yet wanting to seeking that which Christ offers. They wholeheartedly claim that they must trust fully in Jesus, but yet think that they can also trust in mammon or money as well. They handle their money like the world does, focusing their minds of how they can earn more money for themselves and their immediate circles, as opposed to focusing on God and doing His Will, and then letting the finances come by simply trusting in God's provision.  They love to do their own financial planning, and plan for 'retirement' where they can simply 'enjoy' their lives. 

Tragically, many such mammonised professing Christians will not be saved in the end. Many of such people strongly denounce all manner of sin, especially the gross sins of others, but yet do not realise their own pride in not truly trusting in Jesus Christ with a pure and childlike faith. Such pride is a stench in God's nostrils, and sadly, many such professing Christians will only find out they were not truly saved unto the end. 

To be saved from the wrath of Hell, know this: you have sinned against God by breaking His Law, be it be lying, stealing, taking his Name in vain, and failing to seek Him. The just penalty is eternity in Hell. But God being one who is Love, does not desire any should perish in Hell, a place of suffering and torment. So, He sent His only Begotten Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, on your behalf. This is so that on the Day of Judgment where God will judge the world, He can dismiss His case against you. Your broke God's Law, Jesus paid your fine. So, to be saved from the just wrath of God, you need to turn from your sins and put your faith in Jesus Christ alone. No good work of yours can save you, because our works are as filthy rags to God, because of our unrighteousness (Isaiah 64:6).

At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

(Matthew 18:1-4).
