Its Origin, Results, and Remedy
Salvation Only Through Christ
what purpose did Christ come into the world?

Christ Jesus came into the
world to save sinners." 1 Tim. 1:15.
2. Why was
He to be named "Jesus"?
"Thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people
from their sins." Matt.
there salvation through any other?
"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other
name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Acts
whom are we reconciled to God?
"All things are of God, who hath reconciled us to Himself by
Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; to
wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not
imputing their trespasses unto them." 2 Cor. 5:18,19.
has Christ been made for us, and for what purpose?
"For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that
we might be made the righteousness of God in Him." Verse 21.
dependent are we upon Christ for salvation?
"I am the vine, ye are the branches: . . . without Me ye can
do nothing." John 15:5.
three essentials for a Saviour are found in Christ?
Deity. "But unto the Son He saith, Thy throne, O God, is
forever and ever." Heb. 1:8.
Humanity. "When the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth
His Son, made of a woman, made under the law." Gal. 4:4.
did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth." 1 Peter 2:22.
8. How did
Christ show from the Scriptures that the promised Saviour of the world
must be both human and divine?
"While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is He? They say unto Him, The
son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit
call Him Lord, saying, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit Thou on My
right hand, till I make Thine enemies Thy footstool? If David then call
him Lord, how is He his son?" Matt. 22:41-45.
Another has aptly put this important truth concerning the union of the
human and divine in Christ thus: "Divinity needed humanity that
humanity might afford a channel of communication between God and man. Man
needs a power out of and above himself to restore him to the likeness of
God. There must be a power working from within, a new life from above,
before men can be changed from sin to holiness. That power is
two facts testify to the union of divinity and humanity in Christ?
"Concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of
the seed of David according to the flesh; and declared to be the
Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the
resurrection from the dead." Rom. 1:3,4
complete was Christ's victory over death?
"I am the first and the last: I am He that liveth, and was
behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen;
and have the keys of hell and of death." Rev. 1:17,18.
See Acts 2:24.
complete is the salvation obtained in Christ?
"Wherefore, He is able also to save them to the uttermost that
come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for
them." Heb. 7:25.

"Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift." 2 Cor. 9:15.
