Religion: Be Reconciled to God

By STEVE COLANGELO

Reconciliation is a very important doctrine taught in the Bible. It’s important because it teaches us that although we are great sinners, Christ is a greater Savior! There are people that somehow believe that we can be “good enough” to go to Heaven on our own merits, but doctrine of reconciliation blows that argument right out of the water. If somehow, we could become good enough to merit salvation by our own deeds, then Jesus would not have needed to die on the Cross for our sins.
