Have you ever seen a movie when a character is caught in quicksand? That's actually a pretty good picture of us in our sinful state. God invented the "plan of salvation" to pull us out of the quicksand of sin.
Have you ever been so mad you had to hit something? That's how God felt about us! But He took out His anger on Jesus so we could be forgiven.
Christian churches encourage people to "make a decision" for Jesus. But is this a decision we can make? Are we saved because we choose God, or because He chooses us?
Christians use the "five finger exercise" to teach about salvation. Unfortunately, it's more like a "five finger discount"! We can safeguard the gospel by understanding the full scope and sequence of our salvation.
