"Jesus Died, the Just for the Unjust"

While assuring us of the justice of the Divine sentence of death, the Scriptures declare that our Creator is a God of mercy and of pity. When there was no eye to pity and no arm to deliver us, his Arm (the Lord Jesus) brought salvation to us. What did he do for us? He laid down his life for us; "he died for our sins"; "he died the just for the unjust"; "he poured out his soul unto death"; he "made his soul an offering for [our] sin," and "by his stripes we are healed" (Romans 5:8; 1 Peter 3:18; Isaiah 53:4,6,10).

Nothing is more evident than that our Lord Jesus did not suffer an eternity of torment as the price of our redemption. Hence, if the matter needed proof, we have it here. Eternal torment was not the penalty for our sins. On the contrary, the fact that our Lord Jesus died for our sins and that the heavenly Father accepted that sacrifice of his life on our behalf proves that it was our lives that were forfeited by sin. The fullness of the divine penalty against the human race was the deprivation of life. The race, under sentence of death, has entered the prison house of death—the grave, sheol, hades. So it was that our Redeemer when he relinquished his life for us, went also to sheol, hades, the grave. He took our place and suffered the penalty for our sins.

But just as Jesus’ death ransoms man from the sentence of death, he is able to promise that "the hour cometh in which all that are in the graves shall hear the voice of the Son of Man, and come forth"; "and they that hear [obey his voice then], shall live."

Notice the ominous tone of His warnings to His followers: "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves" (Matthew 7:15). He explained: "Not everyone who says to Me,'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day,'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them,'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' " (verses 21-23).
I find it interesting and morally challenging to note that in every case where we see this particular scripture posted, we always see the "misenturpreting wolf" as someone other than ourselves, and that "other" thinks the same of us. Our human arrogance / satan is always ready to decieve us. My hope for myself in my relationship to God and scripture is that I will never be so confident of my discernment abilities such that I stop asking the question, through humble prayer, "What is your wish for me?"

I'me (somewhat) confident that I'm not geting the answer "Judge and moralize about those who seem to discern something different than you." The answer seems more to be "1. Do they verbally accept the savior? 2:are their ourtward behaviors consistant with their words?" I struggle when I see those who say they have given themselves over to the Lord spending their time finding ways to justify their judgment of others. I struggle when, by this very post, I am doing something very similar. I don't have the answers. God does. I just have questions.

traditions of man does in fact lead to many questions.people are so brainwashed into a belief that doesn,t always agree with the scriptures.However truth can be discovered when you get the facts from your bible,and just because you have believed something for so long doesn,t neccesarily make it true.people thought the world was flat,were they right? pastors and teachers onlt take what they were taught and they pass it on to others"a lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on it,s shoes".
