They were under the law and had to rely on animal sacrifices to atone for their sin.
They relied on the chief priests to make atonement for them as a nation by observing religious festivals that were ordained by God. The Bible ~ Gods written word to us ~ says quite clearly that all who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
Before we accept Christ as our Saviour we are spiritually dead to sin. We are born sinners and even if we try to be a ‘good’ person we will fall short of what God requires for an eternal place in Heaven with Him.
It is a deep burden of mine to dedicate this site to media and video messages from the Bible. Obviously you can’t be physically ‘born again’ so we’re talking about a spiritual birth.
When He submitted to the will of the Father and shed His blood on that cross He made a way for each of us to enter into God’s presence. When we acknowledge His sacrifice and accept Him as our personal Lord and Saviour we are ‘covered’ by the blood He shed on the cross for us. It’s acknowledging sin in our life and recognising that only through Christ can we be made holy (pure) before God.In fact it doesn’t even tell us how to “date” or “court,” whichever we call the process we use to get to know a potential mate.In the Bible times, these did not exist in the same form that we see them today.You know they are there somewhere, but you just aren't meeting them! Countless Christians in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and all areas around Australia have enjoyed broadening their circle of Christian friends, beyond their Church alone.
