The wrong view on sin

May 23, 2014 

Unbelievable. In response to a letter from Joseph Reichert: What the heck has he been reading? His poor, misguided, incredibly wrong explanation of how sin was handed down, and why Jesus Christ died, is unbelievable. Wow!

Jesus was God in the flesh. Adam and Eve where the first man and woman. Their sin caused all people to be born sinners. "All have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God." Jesus died for all of us.

Reichert needs to run from those who taught him this crazy theology. The only saving grace comes from asking for forgiveness and asking Jesus to come into your heart and soul as your savior.

Remember, Jesus could have called on the angels, thousands of them, to save him. He willingly died for all of us. We all descended from Adam and Eve.
