"But now God has shown us a different way
to heaven - not by "being good enough" and trying to keep his
laws, but by a new way (though not new, really, for the
Scriptures told about it long ago). Now God says he will accept
and acquit us - declare us "not guilty" - if we trust Jesus
Christ to take away our sins. And we all can be saved in this
same way, by coming to Christ, no matter who we are or what we
have been like. Yes, all have sinned; all fall short of God's
glorious ideal; yet now God declares us "not guilty" of
offending him if we trust in Jesus Christ, who in his kindness
freely takes away our sins." Romans 3:21-24 Living Bible
