Yes. And what is at the root of His coming to do that?God did not merely send His Son to show people how to "live this life." He sent His Son to die for our sins.
He sent His Son to die for our sins.
Yes. Because of love.
No, not the whole of God's word. The whole of God's word is really about love. For some reason you cannot see the forest for the trees.The whole of God's word is about Christ and Him crucified for our sins.
Yep. And with Jesus as my advocate I am righteous - perfectly.When we stand before God on judgment day, you being "human" will acquit you. Either you are perfectly righteous, or you are not. Either you are perfectly holy, or you are not.
Well at least you are admitting that.No one.
Yes, and? Yet you seem to forget the part that it is love that is at the root of all this. Do you deny that?So the message of the Gospel is that we attain perfection and forgiveness (by faith) in Christ alone.
Good. At least you are not part of the fire and brimstone method of bringing people to Christ.No, but because He is a holy God who hates sin.
Yes, it all starts by having faith in Him.God displays His love precisely by sending His Son for our salvation. It is by faith in Him, and only by faith in Him, that we are saved.
You misunderstand what I mean by people "trying their best" as they go through life. What are we supposed to do, go with trying our worst as we live day to day. That's ridiculous.Humans "trying their best" will simply not cut it.
True. As I said before, He will be my advocate before the Father.Those who believe in Him will not face condemnation.
It's not about people trying to save themselves by "trying their best" AND I NEVER MEANT THAT AT ALL. What I did mean that by virtue of coming here, Jesus knows exactly what all humans face and He takes that into account.Those who do not believe in Him will face condemnation, regardless of cethem "trying their best."
So, as we go through life, I think it is good counsel that all of us should try the best as we can to successfully navigate this life which we have been given. Apparently you are of a different mindset on the issue. So go ahead and try your worst, I'm sticking with trying my best.
