Why you cant buy your way into heaven

You must not have any other god but me. You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea. You must not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other gods.

— Exodus 20:3-5

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

— 2 Cor 5:21
