GREAT NEWS FOR THOSE WHO SIN (that would be all of us 🙂 )
“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” (1 John 2:1-2)
John MacArthur commenting on this passage: “Perhaps a modern concept of the term ‘advocate’ would be ‘defense attorney’. Although Satan prosecutes believers night and day before the Father due to our sin (Rev. 12:10), Christ’s high priestly ministry guarantees not only sympathy but also acquittal.”

ARE ALL RELIGIONS TRUE?
“Why do we make the catastrophic error of thinking that all religions are right…?”
“All religions are not the same. All religions do not point to [the God of the Bible.] All religions do not say that all religions are the same. At the heart of every religion is an uncompromising commitment to a particular way of defining who God is – or is not – and accordingly, of defining life’s purpose.”
“Anyone who claims that all religions are the same betrays not only an ignorance of all religions but also a caricatured view of even the best-known one. Every religion at its core is exclusive.”
Ravi Zacharias, Jesus Among Other Gods
