  4. Is it true or false that Jesus was crucified?  

In the Injil, Luke chapter 9 and verse 22, Jesus said “The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.”

In the Injil, John chapter 3 and verses 14-16, it is written: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Jesus’ mission was to save the world; he came to pay the price for my sins and yours.

In Romans 3:23 the Bible said, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”

In 1 John 1:8-9 we read, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.“ Do you think my friend that you have no sin in your life?

The justice of God:

The Bible says: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Roman 6:23) Therefore it is clear that, according to God’s law, all of us are sinners and we deserve to die.

You may say that you can gain the salvation by good deeds. Well, let me ask you: If one day you were to kill someone, how many good deeds would you have to do in order to obtain forgiveness? Moreover, you have all kinds of sins in your life; the more you live, the more you sin, simply because we are sinful men by nature. What kind of scale do you need to balance your good deeds with your bad deeds? If you were to live all your life to pay for your sins, you will never reach the end, my dear friend! Even if you repent, you have to pay the price for your crime. The Bible says that our good works are nothing more than filthy, dirty rags.
