Can YOU obey enough to be saved?

Wow!  Saw this sign this morning and just had to take a pic!  I always hear Roman Catholic apologists saying that they don’t believe salvation comes through obedience, but I think this sign clearly illustrates otherwise.  In the real-world practice of their religion, salvation through obedience and good works is exactly what is being preached.  The idea that His death on the Cross wasn’t quite enough to pay for the sins of His people is an insult to Christ.

I guess we have to decide if we are going to believe the Roman Catholic teaching, or this passage below.  They can’t both be right:

For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are.  But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago.   We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.  Romans 3:20-22

Since nobody except Christ has ever kept God’s law, I wonder what the person who put up this sign will do when facing the judge?  If the judge is just (and He is) then they will be condemned forever.  Let us pray for the people at this church, that their eyes will be opened to the truth of salvation as explained in Romans and they begin clinging to Christ for salvation rather than their own obedience!
