Why did He have to die?
Why did Jesus have to die for our sins?
Because."Man has fallen.
We are all dead in sin.
We cannot save ourselves.
We cannot pay the debt we owe to God.
We need someone to save us, someone has to
pay for our sin. No man can, because sin
requires the death penalty [we can't pay for
our own sins because we are all sinners] but God
sent His Son [only], who lived a sinless life so
He could die for us, bearing the penalty He
didn't owe. God requires that we repent and
trust in the [only] One [Jesus] who can save us."
- Tim Brown
A Plea for Sinners
Oh, my brothers and sisters in Christ,
if sinners will be damned, at least let them
leap to hell over our bodies; and if they will perish,
let them perish with our arms about their knees,
imploring them to stay.and not to destroy themselves.
If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth
of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned
and unprayed for.
- Charles Spurgeon
