Hard To Believe1
There are two parts of the Christian faith that are hard to believe. First that we have sinned against God, secondly that pardon and remission of sins comes through the blood of Christ, as received in the Word and Sacraments.
But however much humanity may deny the reality of divine law, its violation and its consequences (death); or recast it in terms of psychology, sociology, economics, politics etc., it will not go away. The reason people deny it is that they don't know how to get rid of it. But Christians do. By baptism, and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. As the Lord says, "Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved." (Mark 16:15) This is God's gift given for all people.
