Jesus, when crucified, died the second death for all mankind - He did this for us and since He took our fallen sinful nature, yet without sin, He did this as us. All human effort to contribute to their own salvation is sin. For whatever does not come from faith working by love is sin. Stop looking for a list of things on "How to be Saved" - the good news is that you already are, if you believe the Scripture.

The Bible and the 1888 message teach that Christ has saved the world. “It is a fact, plainly stated in the Bible, that the gift of righteousness and life in Christ has come to every man on earth." Yet the Quarterly insists otherwise.

Our lesson creates some ideas that do not harmonize with [the Bible] or this “most precious message.” One, which is presented consistently in the quarterlies, is that “God … offers salvation through Christ.” Salvation is God’s gift (not offer) to every soul on earth.  (Words in brackets inserted by site director.)

My disbelief of the fact does not affect its truth.

To be born of God is to receive our life from Him, just as we receive life through birth from our earthly parents. But the new birth is a continuous process, and thus something that is ever present.

There are very many professed Christians who think it would be presumption for them to say, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live live, but Christ lives in me

According to Jesus, the first and clearest evidence that one has received the Holy Spirit is a painful conviction of spiritual need.

Much more than just getting people into heaven, the 1888 message affirms an eschatological fulfillment of God’s call to character perfection through the unprecedented high priestly ministry of Christ, which prepares a people who stand firm during persecution but guards them against the error of perfectionism.

This presentation is a part of our current Church history - it is not pleasant, nor is it comfortable, but it is true. Waggoner has taught us that the sins of others our our sins too, so let us all pray that the Lord forgive us and give each of us eye salve so our blind eyes can be opened.
