According to Revelations, we are judged by our acts
Indeed we are. We are judged for our good works.
Would you care to support ANY of this with scriptures?
McVeigh is a murderer. That will not get you into heaven.
Indeed, you are correct. Murder is a sin and will not get you into heaven. The greatest sin I ever personaly committed (and I am a sinful man) was to participate in the slaughter of thousands- I gave ground support to bombers during the Vietnam war (the last 4 days of it). That makes me a murderer, no better than McVeigh. Jesus is the only thing that will get you into heaven, as YOU are a sinner, as McVeigh was. If not for Christ I would be doomed. As would you, as would we all.
he should have done as Jesus commanded him to do.
As should you have. But you haven't. You have coveted, you have harbored evil thoughts, you probably stole, you committed any number of sins. As have we all.
If you want to reach heaven, you MUST beg forgiveness for all the nasty shit you have done to others. If you believe that you have never sinned, you are in great danger of hellfire.
Cheering McVeigh's executioner on makes you a party to the murder of McVeigh. Being for the death penalty makes you a party to it.
Actually, I doubt very much McVeigh made it to heaven. But only God knows whether or not he did.
Finally, John 8:4-12
They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
