How one gets to heaven
#11
Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.  - Matthew 7:21 (DRV)

That's Our Lord pretty much word-for-word refuting the "accept as Lord and Savior" business and also right on point with simple belief not being sufficient for salvation. I think most Protestants don't understand what a "deed" really is. They think that when we say deeds are necessary for salvation we mean you have to say so many Hail Marys or you won't be saved -- they think of  "deeds" as always an external action, when conforming one's will and actions to the 10 commandments is itself a "deed".
