For All have Sinned: Standing on Level Ground
“Thunderously, inarguably, the Sermon on the Mount proves that before God we all stand on level ground: murderers and temper-throwers, adulterers and lusters, thieves and coveters. We are all desperate, and that is in fact the only state appropriate to a human being who wants to know God. Having fallen from the absolute Ideal, we have nowhere to land but in the safety net of absolute grace.”– Philip Yancey, [amazon_link id=”031021923X” target=”_blank” ]The Jesus I Never Knew[/amazon_link]
Brian Doerksen – The River – English & German Subtitles
The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
They have all turned aside,
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.
– Psalm 14:2-3
New King James Version (NKJV)
We are in a hopeless state. We all need to be forgiven. We need a Savior.
There is only one way: Jesus Christ – He is the way, the truth, and the life.
