Jesus Christ came to this earth to save sinners, not destroy them. Theology has misrepresented the teaching of Scripture about the mission of Jesus. Some have portrayed an angry God; others a racist God. Today, to be “politically correct” (which is usually Biblically incorrect), we are being offered a genderless God. In each case the “gospel” and “Jesus” presented are false both doctrinally and morally.
The Bible is very clear about the purposes of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, which basically were to atone for the sin of mankind4 and destroy the works of the devil. Fallen man is lost because Adam and Eve believed the devil’s lie instead of God’s truth. The Son of Man, Jesus Christ, came to save that which was lost. He came to give us life, and that more abundantly. Jesus came to bruise the head of Satan, not man. When Jesus ministered here on earth, He was performing the will of Heaven.
The professional religion of the day was off-limits to those whom society rendered unclean or ungodly. Jesus, as recorded in John 8:2-11 and Mark 1:40-42, reveals a blessed truth, and that is that He didn’t come to condemn sinners, but to save and cleanse them. Of course coming to Him involves repentance and a commitment to sin no more. As stated earlier, any “gospel” that perverts grace isn’t presenting the true message of Jesus.
Jesus Christ knows you very well. He knows your struggles, your griefs, your pains, your hidden fears. In fact, He bore all your grief and carried your sorrows, and suffered for your sins on His cross. He’s the One to turn to when you get bruised. His will is to cleanse you, not “clock” you; help you, not hurt you; strengthen you, not smite you.
When Jesus walked on this earth, He was the Hero of the “untouchables”. And He hasn’t changed one bit!
