Salvation is only open to those who come "as a sinner" to Jesus. In our world today, there is so much emphasis on 'living and let live' as it were. No one wants to be corrected or questioned in any way. Well, the Bible makes it clear that we all belong under the classification of 'sinners' whether we like the term or not. That makes us all condemned. God longs to embrace the sinner in love and forgiveness. But we need to agree with God and come as a sinner to Calvary's cross in order to receive God's full and free forgiveness.
