Christianity is not a religion of self-help, but of divine rescue its a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
The message of the New testament is that God the Son came to earth in the person of Jesus Christ to rescue sinful human beings from God the Father’s just wrath.
The gospel reveal that Man is saved by God from God. It also reveal that salvation is provided specifically through the death Jesus Christ upon the cross.
The cross is the crucial point of Christianity.
The Atonement is at the very heart of the Christian Faith but to understand “the atonement”, i.e., the reconciliation of men with God, a person must first understand both humanity’s sinful condition and God holiness, consequently God’s just wrath against sin. (m.a.)
