“Gospel” literally means, “truth, “God is perfect, and so is His law. Because we are imperfect, we cannot keep God’s perfect law. Any gap between God’s perfect law and our imperfect obedience is “sin,” and all of us have sinned: “For all have sinned and fell short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The Bible-mandated punishment for sin is the death penalty: “For the wages of sin is death, …” (Romans 6:23) continued below).
{1}” What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound ?{2} God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? {3} Know ye not, that so many of us baptized into Jesus Christ baptized into his death? {4} Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so, we also should walk in newness of life.”

{5}” For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall also be in the likeness of his resurrection. {6} Knowing this, we, that the body of sin destroyed, with him that henceforth we should not serve sin.{7} For he that is dead be free from sin.{8} Now if we are dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:{9} Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.”

{10} “For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that liveth, he liveth unto God.{11} Likewise reckons ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.{12}. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. {13} Neither yield members

as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.{14} For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law but grace.”

{15}” What then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. {16} Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death or obedience unto righteousness? GOD IS TO BE UNDERSTOOD

{17} and ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was believed by you.{18} Being then made free from sin. Ye became the servants of righteousness.”

{19} “I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your member’s servants to uncleanness and iniquity unto iniquity: even so now yield your members’ servants to righteousness unto holiness.{20} For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.{21} What fruit had ye then in those things of whom ye are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.{22} But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.{23}” For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

” You may think you are a just person according to your standard of beliefs.” Then who is right and then who is wrong. Because God loves us, He didn’t want to wipe us out. But God is just and right always. We are not God.” He couldn’t simply brush

us aside because of our sins either.” Why not?” Imagine something horrific.” Imagine a man and another man and another man and another caught killing your mother or daughter.

You cannot demand justice. If the judge declares himself right and simply lets the murderer go free, would you consider him a good judge who upheld justice? A just judge must punish crime according to the law. Likewise, God, who is perfectly just, must punish sin according to His perfect law. Otherwise, He would be neither just nor perfect – i.e., “Holy.”So what did Holy God do about our sin? He hurled the punishment required by His law – the death penalty – at us, but then stepped in front of us to take upon Himself the full brunt of that punishment, on the cross of Calvary. Why? He loves you, more than you deserve and more than you can ever imagine. If you believe, Jesus so loved you that He died on the cross to pay the death penalty due for your sins, you will live and have eternal life in heaven.”For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Truth and the reason (Romans 6:23) above concludes, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”What if you don’t believe that? Then you will go to hell when you die and burn forever to pay for your sins on your own.“The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and be gnashing of teeth.” (Matthew 13:41-42)  What about all of the good works you’ve done in your life?”If an Olympic athlete wins a gold medal and then murders someone, will his gold medal performance exonerate him of the crime? The issue is ? not works. Then why do humans do good works? Not to gain salvation but to thank and honor Jesus for having saved us. Believing that good works save us is akin to death row inmates thinking that good behavior will gain their freedom.”
