Martin's comment on 2014-09-25 12:44:01:

I believe this verse deals with what can be expected in heaven. If you have done good deeds while on this earth righteousness , you will be clothed in fine linen, clean and white. But if not, you will not be in fine linen. I think this can pertain to different levels of saints that we can expect in heaven. If someone kill 50 people and while in prison finds God and asks for salvation and forgiveness that it will be granted but they will not be dressed in fine linen because their work on earth was not righteous.
