need for the cross

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sins. 1 John 1:7

They are ready to admire Jesus’ life and to praise the sublimity of his moral teaching, but they cannot believe that Christ died for their sins and that without death they would be lost in sin. This is one of the prime “scandals” of Christianity for modern man- and the very heart of the apostolic Gospel.

Without death, there is no life…
