Why Jesus? Couldn’t there be another way?

pexels-photo-302187“Atonement” is a theological word that gets mentioned. In short, atonement refers to the work that Christ has done for those who have faith in Him to earn their salvation.

I think people sometimes approach the gospel with skepticism. Jesus died for the sins of all who believe in him.

I know I used to ask was “why do we need this? Why do we have to believe in Jesus? Is sin such a big deal? Why is he the only way?”

As 2018 comes to a close, I am sharing some of my top posts from this year. 

Christian comedian John Crist shared this photo on Instagram this weekend that’s gone viral. The photo is a card from a church, apparently meant to be distributed to parents of fussy children, instructing them that a “connection team member” would assist them in leaving the sanctuary during worship.

It’s a sad commentary on the American church that we shame parents for bringing their kids and their kids…acting like kids in a church service.
