Why Should Jesus Save You?

The question reveals a misunderstanding of Christianity.

It reveals a popular but inaccurate view of what the Christian gospel is all about. It shows that the quesitoner has no real knowledge of what Jesus taught or what the Church has always taught.

  • There is nothing in me worth saving.
  • He saves the undeserving not the self-righteous.
  • He saves by his grace not our merit.
  • He saves because of His goodness not ours.
  • He saves the broken in spirit not the proud.
  • He saves the humble not the haughty.
  • And he saves by faith not anyone’s works.

Proclaim the gospel of Christ not a self-righteous self-help program.
