Only through Jesus can you have eternal life. There are many who reject Jesus as the way, believing in their own human wisdom that their way is also a valid way to please God and possess eternal life Cain 's Religion , but all of these many broad roads will lead to hell the 2nd death

For me it means that there's some deeds we do with the thought that it's good but it end up contrasting with the word of God

 

Henry James's comment on 2014-02-19 17:51:06:

This passage is just trying to let us understand that the thought of God is not our thought

 

Nick's comment on 2013-12-13 14:21:40:

What the Bible seems to be saying is that man apart from God cannot devise any plan which brings ultimate success. Man's plans apart from God always fail which leads to the death of someone or something. Simply, man is inadequate
on his own. Jesus said it clearly " apart from me you can do nothing".

I'm not sure the bible explains what that way is however it does tell us who they are. Matt. 7:22 gives us a description of there people. They believe beyond a doubt they have done what the Lord wanted but the works they do are not by faith they are by sight. The bible say's faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Heb. 11:1 So you see without faith it is impossible to please God
