‚ÄčMythBusters: Holiness or Hell part 1

When looking at this passage:
Romans 6; 17-2317 But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in Holiness. 20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. 22 But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in Holiness, and the outcome, Eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is Eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

It could seem as if the writer is communicating that living right and holy as Slaves to God is the reason people have Eternal Life, Eternal Life being the knowing and enjoying of God and His Son Christ Jesus for all Eternity. But one thing we must remember is God and His way can be very technical thus many of the doctrines of Scripture becomes technical. But what it actually says is ((The Outcome)) of Holiness and Righteousness is Eternal Life and this is true because God created everything we do to have a result we definitely "Shall reap what we sow" Scripture says. And God is certainly communicating in the passage above that the reaping results/outcome of Holiness is Eternal Life/Heaven. But what it is NOT saying is the reason people go to heaven is because they live in Holiness and Righteousness, He makes this very clear at the end in verse 23. Which says "For the wages of sin is death, {but the free gift of God is Eternal Life in Christ Jesus our Lord"} this implies Believers did not Earn, Work for, Nor live Holy & Right for Eternal Life. It is an Unearned, Undeserved free gift to us who are in Christ Jesus who is our Lord & New Master and we are no longer Slaves to Sin.

The reason we receive Heaven/Eternal Life is because God freed us from Sin our old Master while we were yet HELPLESS so we could switch over and Serve God instead as a slave of righteousness, "because No one can serve 2 Master's at once" and God did this out of His own kindness and not because we deserve it neither because we think we're good or have lived Holy. Therefore, yes, the outcome on & above the surface ("The Grass") is Eternal Life because we have lived Holy & right before God the ultimate Judge of all our deeds (but the first cause & reason below the surface of it all ("The Seed-Roots"), is we have Eternal Life because of the Free Gift of God which flowed from his gracious and kind character and not because of ourselves at any point.

But Death is because of ourselves, we deserve it, we earned it, it's our pay for working for Sin our whole life. We cannot work for and be waged  Eternal Life but we have certainly worked for Sin our Original Master since "The Fall" and our wages for our Work is Eternal Death/ Hell. And the only way to Escape the wage due to us is Faith in Christ & Repentance which comes from God's Grace and leads to a switching of Master's from Sin to God and from Lawless behavior to Holy Behavior the outcome of Holy Behavior as a Slave to righteousness and God being Eternal Life which started strictly by God's Grace and then your response. For the scripture clearly says " The wages of Sin IS Death" but it DOES NOT say afterwards the wages of Righteousness and Holiness is Eternal Life.
