* Played straight for Jesus. After all He went through to save us, the Book of Revelations identifies Him as the future ruler of the Ressurected faithful. This is somewhat subverted in that, being God, his dominion over us should have been His birthright rather than something earned, and many people will end up in Hell anyway.

Not to be confused with the GoldenEnding in video games, where players actually have to [[VideoGameRewards earn]] their happy ending. It is possible for both tropes to be in play at the same time, however.

::: In other words, no matter how hard you work you can't earn your way to Heaven. This sounds pretty bad at first, until you realize that Paul's meaning in this is that because Jesus [[HeroicSacrifice died]] for our sins, all we have to do is accept him as our savior to make it to Heaven, which is a lot easier than [[FailureistheOnlyOption trying to earn brownie points with God]].
