Jesus' Atoning Blood
"Jesus gave his life on the cross
for any who will believe. We're not redeemed by silver or gold. Jesus
paid for it with his blood (1 Peter 1:18). When some one tells you that
your religion is a bloody religion and the Bible is a bloody book, tell
them yes, Christianity is a bloody religion; the gospel is a bloody
gospel; the Bible is a bloody book; the plan of redemption is bloody.
It is. You take the blood of Jesus Christ out of Christianity and that
book isn't worth the paper it is written on. It would be worth no more
than your body with the blood taken out. Take the blood of Jesus Christ
out and it would be a meaningless jargon and jumble of words."
