The Saving Death and Resurrection of Christ   Leave a comment


“By giving up his own Son for our sins, God manifests that his plan for us is one of benevolent love, prior to any merit on our part: ‘In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the expiation for our sins’ (1 Jn 4:10, 19). God ‘shows his love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us’ (Rom 5:8). . . . The Church, following the apostles, teaches that Christ died for all men without exception: ‘There is not, never has been, and never will be a single human being for whom Christ did not suffer.'”
