2. We save ourselves by our own good works - Ephesians 2:8-9 8 For aby grace you have been saved bthrough faith; and 1that not of yourselves, it is cthe gift of God; 9anot as a result of works, that bno one should boast.

3. We should love others only if they love us. - Matthew 5:46 46 "For aif you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the 1tax-gatherers do the same?
