WHY IS IT SO FOOLISH TO REJECT THE CROSS?: To be frank, the way the question was formed in the heading presents a gross understatement. The word “foolish” is not nearly strong enough. To turn from the Cross of Christ is to turn from the only way of coming to God, the only way of having fellowship with God, and the only way of overcoming the world, the flesh, and the Devil. For one to exchange the free Grace of God, which comes to us solely by the means of the Cross, for the bondage of our own works is stupid indeed! The truth is, we have no alternative to the Cross of Christ! The Cross is God’s Way and it is His only Way. Continue Reading

This vividly proclaims the following truth: Jesus Christ saves us from sin, not in sin.
The trespass offering was most holy as well. The requirements for the trespass offering were very similar to the sin offering. Both were intended as remedies for the sins of spiritual weakness; intended upon life still subject to the trials and temptations of this world.

“For sin shall not have dominion over you (the sin nature will not have dominion over us if we as Believers continue to exercise Faith in the Cross of Christ; otherwise, the sin nature most definitely will have dominion over the Believer): for you are not under the Law (means that if we try to live this life by any type of law, no matter how good that law might be in its own right, we will conclude by the sin nature having dominion over us), but under Grace (the Grace of God flows to the Believer on an unending basis only as long as the Believer exercises Faith in Christ and what He did at the Cross; Grace is merely the Goodness of God exercised by and through the Holy Spirit, and given to undeserving Saints)” (Rom. 6:14 KJV).
