I heard an amazing message yesterday at church. The pastor commented on the reality that even Christ had doubts about the need for the Cross. He referred to matt 26:39, "and going a little farther, he fell facedown and prayed, "My Father! If it is possible, let this cup pass from me...
Christ was asking the Father if there might be another way.
We know the answer, Christ was crucified for the world. If there had been another way God would have never allowed His son to suffer such anguish.
I realized as I heard the message that sincerity alone will not cause salvation, therefore, it is imperative as the physical representation of Christ in this age we must stay salted and not fall for the idea that all religeons will find there way to heaven by sincerity of committment or belief.
Powerful in my thinking
