Sin, Redemption, and Judgement

Sin, Redemption, and Judgement

All have sinned (Romans 3:23), which is transgression of God’s law (1 John 3:4), and the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).

God sent His Son to save us from our sins by Jesus Christ dying on the cross, being buried, and raised from the dead (John 3:16; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4).

God’s grace brings salvation and has appeared to all men (Titus 2:11). “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace” (Ephesians 1:7).

If we love Jesus we will keep His commandments (John 14:15; 1 John 5:3); thereby demonstrating an obedient faith (Hebrews 5:9), leading to salvation.

Christ will return unexpectedly on the Judgment Day and judge all of humankind by His gospel (2 Peter 3:7-10; 2 Corinthians 5:10; John 12:48; Romans 2:16). 

The wicked will be cast into hell to receive eternal punishment, and that the righteous will enter into life eternal (Matthew 25:31-46; Revelation 21:1-8).
