At the heart of the Christian faith lies this heart shattering truth: God alone justifies the sinner, and God CAN justify the sinner because God died for the ungodly. Not by anything the ungodly did, for while we were still enemies, while we were ungodly ...while *I* was ungodly... He made us acceptable, righteous, redeemed.
"Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." -Romans 5:1
