If everyone in the world stopped sinning today, none
of them would be any closer to heaven! Sin is simply
not the issue; Christ is the issue. The objective in
witnessing is not to get people to stop sinning-----
that would be a hopeless task; the emphasis is on the
work of Christ as the Solution to sin.
2 Cor. 5:14, 15,19; 1Tim. 2:6, 4:10; Tit. 2:11;
Heb. 2:9; 2 Pet. 2:1; 1 John 2:2
Everyone who thus HOPES in Him purifies himself
as He is pure.
1 John 3:3
