Why did Christ have to die?

Christ's death, our salvation

The age old question, "why did Christ have to die" can only be answered by the holy scriptures. Shortly after God created the world and man, man ate the forbidden fruit and did what
God said they would, "Ye shall surely die" and they did!! It was not a physical death but a spiritual death, a seperation from God through sin. Isa 59:1-2 Christ had to die so that mankind could have salvation from their sins. John 8:32 "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free"

 The well known passage John 3:16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotton son that whosoever believeth in him, should not parish, but have everlasting life"
Matthew 28:18-20
"All power is given unto me in heaven and earth, go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptising them into the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe whatsoever I have commanded you, and lo I will be with you alway, unto the end of the world"


God's word is a light unto
our path and a lamp unto
our feet
