Is it possible for believers to live in such a way that they can earn the favor of God, or to do more than the minimum requirement, so that their surplus merit can be dispensed to others as they have need? This is the teaching of some churches, but we see that it is not in accord with what the Bible says; that even if you could live perfectly, you would only be doing your duty before God - you wouldn’t earn anything from Him.
