You know, most people know that they’ve sinned. What they don’t know is the seriousness of that sin.
I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Many times people hear that “All have sinned.” But they conclude that since sin is something everyone is doing, it can’t be so bad. And they think “While I’m a sinner, I’m not so bad a sinner that I can’t get to Heaven by being reasonably good.” Another way they may put it is that, “their good outweighs their bad.” When you share your faith with someone it’s important for them to understand that God’s standard is perfection and that ANY sin, even as small as a bad thought, disqualifies them from Heaven. The foundation of people saving themselves by some inherent goodness has to be torn down. We are saved by faith alone in Christ ALONE.
