good deeds are all that count

    No we just get punished for them. Then those deeds are lied about. If it is truly a good deed that can not be demonized someone else will get the credit for it.

    Great! it reminds me of Omar Khayyam's: "The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ, Moves on: nor all your Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all your tears wash out a word of it." Good deeds are done and not said.
     -- RobertSRQ     
    Good deeds are as beneficial to us as to whom our good deeds are directed. It doesn't matter who gets credit for them, it is your own character that they are building.

    Talk is cheap.

    Planning now for a planet and its population that will exist 100 years from now is to me a good deed. To thoughtlessly stumble ever forward with an ever expanding population where the theoretically most intelligent species is the only one left standing is not a good deed in my opinion.

    No good deed ever goes unnoticed by the cosmic creator, nor is it ever erased from our record. A good deed is never wasted. (Sri Krishna)
     -- Ken, Milford Pa     
    To a completely pure perfect and righteous God once we have sinned even once we are guilty of that sin eternally, and the good deeds that we do that try to make us holy and righteous again in a perfect and pure Gods eyes are like filthy rags. God sees our good deeds as filthy rags, worthless. You can never earn your acceptance from a perfect God. But you can thank Him for giving it to us by accepting the truth, because He loves us regardless of our works.

    Nate, what a bunch of superstitious hogwash you have spewn.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    If you do a good deed, it is inherently good. That is, even if no one remembers what you did, even if you don't remember what you did, even the person you did a good deed for doesn't remember what you did, it is still a good deed which helped that person. If no one remembers, it is still there.
