“Christ Died For Our Sins According To The Scriptures”

The Scriptures teach us that “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3). Any minister who minimizes sin and treads lightly when he preaches on sin, will also minimize the atonement, and will fail to preach the blood atonement as the only escape from damnation. The minister who preaches that sin is “just a mistake” will also preach that one may be saved through strength of character and practice of good works.
But the Word of God teaches that it is only through shedding of blood that we find remission for sin, and “without shedding of blood is no remission” (Hebrews 9:22). The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7). Jesus paid the penalty, He died the death. He suffered in our stead, He offered Himself for every sinner upon the face of the earth–and there is no other way for a sinner to be saved!
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14:6).
