God may not mete out punishment today as read in Biblical examples but . . .

. . . our disobedience and sinning has consequences all on their own; we may reap negative results now, or maybe later, but GOD will not be mocked: GOD has a high standard and ultimately GOD will judge everyone. This World is still under the rule of Satan and will remain so until Jesus returns and implements the end times prophecies.

Romans 6:23 ESV 

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I am sure glad  that I am a Christian living under GOD’s Grace

Yes Christians are in this world that has much to tempt us; yes our minds and bodies are weak and we all have sinned.

Romans 3:23 ESV 

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

“Dziękuję Ci za wypłatę kar za moje grzechy, ocalając mnie przed sądem Bożym z wyprzedzeniem”.

“Ďakujem Ježišovi za zaplatenie pokuty za moje hriechy, a tak ma zachránil pred Božím úsudkom vopred”.

“Thank you Jesus for paying the penalty for my sins thus saving me from GOD’s judgement in advance”.

«Спасибо вам, Иисус за то, что заплатил за мои грехи, чтобы спасти меня от суждения Бога».


The more I sin the more forgiveness and the greater measure of GOD’s Grace I get, right?

Not so fast. (ST) Apostle Paul writes:

Romans 6:1-2 ESV

What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?

 

I will just do more good than bad and thus please GOD so that I can enter Heaven

Wrong.  We do not save our self with works, we do good to demonstrate GOD’s Love and our gratitude for what Jesus had done – and is doing even now – as HIS work applies to all believers from all times. The good we do, can enhance our heavenly rewards and make things better on this planet but trust in Jesus is the only way to salvation.

Romans 11:6 ESV 

But if it is by grace, it is no longer on the basis of works; otherwise grace would no longer be grace.

1 Corinthians 3:13-15 ESV 

Each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire.
