A word for the those who accuse us of “doing works” to get into Heaven

To the pastors accusing us of "doing works to get into Heaven," we have this to say:

WORKS is what YOU'RE doing every Sunday, standing there at the pulpit in your special frocks, preaching what you were taught in your seminaries.

WORKS is vacuuming the floors of your church, or volunteering to drive your church bus; or visiting the sick or cooking at your local homeless shelter.

OBEDIENCE, on the other hand, is NOT "works". It's obeying God's Divine Instructions on how to live a holy, set apart life. Since He commanded HIS people to keep, for instance, the Seventh Day Sabbath REST, our responsibility is to OBEY that command; not twist it into something else, and pretend He's okay with that!

The ONLY thing you are accomplishing by rejecting His Divine Instructions (Torah - the first five Books) is to make yourself appear to be half-hearted (Revelation 3:16) - which will keep you OUT of Heaven!

If you can't even be bothered to keep the commanded Seventh Day Sabbath, WHOM are you worshiping?

Genesis 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, along with everything in them. 2 On the seventh day God was finished with his work which he had made, so he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3 God blessed the seventh day and separated it as holy; because on that day God rested from all his work which he had created, so that it itself could produce.

Exodus 31:16 The people of Isra'el are to keep the Shabbat, to observe Shabbat through all their generations as a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between me and the people of Isra'el forever; for in six days ADONAI made heaven and earth, but on the seventh day he stopped working and rested.'"

Ezekiel 20:11 I gave them my laws and showed them my rulings; if a person obeys them, he will have life through them. 12 I gave them my shabbats as a sign between me and them, so that they would know that I, ADONAI, am the one who makes them holy.
