    Quick survey. Have you ever stolen? Even some candy as a child counts. Have you ever lied? If so, you've broken one of the 10 Commandments and have sinned.
    Sin seperates us from God. Our souls are eternal and our sin will seperate our souls from God for all eternity (i.e. it will put us in hell). But God was offered us a way out of hell through His son Jesus Christ.
    Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
    All you must do is accept the Gift to spend eterniity in Heaven with God.
    Rom 10:9 Because if you confess the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.
    'Confess the Lord Jesus' means tell someone else you believe Jesus is Lord. 'Believe in your heart', notice it doesn't say intellectually accept it, even Satan does that. 'Be saved' means saved from hell.
    And that's it. Not too tough, eh?

    I think that hardest thing about Christianity for people to overcome is that it's so simple.

    Now you've heard.

    I don't understand why god would sacrifice himself to save us?


    Could someone explain that to me in biblical terms?


    Edit: I have dozens of questions, but this will do for now.

    That's Paul talking.

    EDIT: telerion pointed that out, too. Dang, I'm slow.

    Why should I care about being separated from God? I'm liking it so far.

    And how many degrees of separation from God are required until you see your own face? 😀

    Short version. The old free-will argument: man chooses separation from God by disobeying His moral law. By our own free will, we are therefore separated from God. In His love, God fulfilled his own atonement requirements, because no-one else qualified.

    To what is 'it' referring? And 'care' about what?
