Sin Can't Be Removed

Sin cannot be removed by good deeds.

One thing that separates Biblical Christianity from every other religion or philosophy of the world is the belief that no matter how hard a person tries, he or she cannot do enough good to erase the penalty of sin. Ephesians 2:8 says, "For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift - not from works, so that no one can boast."

In actuality, the Bible speaks much about the necessity of good deeds/works, not as the way of salvation, but rather, as a result of salvation. Might you be trying to be made right with God through what you are doing? If you were able to acheive salvation through good works you would be able to boast.
