Is there no better way?
Most of us don’t think of ourselves as “sinners.”
When we compare ourselves to others, we tend to think that we are “pretty good people.” But haven’t we all acted selfishly and done things that we know are displeasing to God?
But Jesus, the one who never acted selfishly, who never disobeyed God, lived and died so that selfish people like you and me would be delivered from our sin and selfishness, and transformed into new people.
Of course, there are many other religions in the world that share some common concerns with Christianity: answers to the problem with evil, what happens to us after we die, and a hunger to know the meaning of life.
Facing these questions, various religions give different answers, but they are agreed that salvation is something we must earn. Success depends on our effort. But, how can selfish people ever be devoted to something other than themselves? Is there no better way?
