Question: I've been told that Jesus died for my sins. What does that mean exactly? How could the death of Jesus help me get to heaven? What does the death of Christ save me from?
The world is filled with competing theories about God, religion, and salvation. Alternate views of Jesus vie for our attention at every turn.
