And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (Rev 20:11-12)
One of my least lovely traits, out of the many that I have, is that I love to irritate non-Catholics who are trying to irritate me by agreeing with them. A family member, to be unnamed at this point, accused me once of believing I could work my way into Heaven. Well, you know and I know what the response should have been. I should have gone into the discussion of grace (unearned) and response, etc., etc., etc. But instead I just nodded and smiled, "Yep. I am working out my salvation with fear and trembling." Scandal! Hee!
