Does somebody need to believe in Jesus's death on the cross, after reading these verses of the bible?
1. (II Chronicles 7:14) “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land”.
2. (Ezekiel 18:20-21) “The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, and neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son.
“The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.…. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keeps all my statutes, and does that which is lawful and rightful, he shall surely live, and will not die”.
3. (1Timothy 6:18-19) That they do good, that they are rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
4. Matthew 19:17 (New Living Translation)
“Why ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. But to answer your question—if you want to receive eternal life, keep the commandments.”
It will help if you read the whole passage my friend. It is easy to take certain verses out of context no matter the religion. If we have sinned at all, our souls will die, that is why we need a Savior. Jesus died on the cross to sacrifice Himself to pay for the sin of those who believe in Him , therefor their souls will not perish.
It is up to everyone to decide whether they can save themselves or need a Savior. As far as I know most religions are based on works for salvation except one, faith in Christ. For salvation is based what He has done on the cross and not us, this is why I am a Christian, for I know I am not an all good person. Salvation is a gift from God, I prefer to accept that gift and believe in Jesus Christ.
Why do you think Jesus was crucified if He was guilty of nothing?
