"I would rather preach the truth with too great a severity,
than to ever once act the hypocrite and conceal the truth!"
For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
- 1 Corinthians 1:17
What is the Truth?
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.
So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
Singing the praises of my Beautiful Savior,
