"Christ died for the ungodly." -The Apostle Paul

"Christ left heaven. He laid aside glory, concealing His majesty. He subjected Himself to the creature's scorn, outcast from a world He created. He suffered demonic attack, lies, and public ridicule. Friends forsook Him. He was brutally beaten, stripped, and put to open shame. Spat upon and slapped, publicly and shamefully executed. He assumed the guilt and punishment for every sin we ever committed. He reconciled us to God and secured our acceptance before god. Why? because justice demanded it and our justification required it. because He loved us even before we knew Him or understood what he was doing." -Anthony J. Carter, pastor
