Everyone should ask the same simple question that the Philippian jailer posed to his two prisoners. “…Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” Only two answers to your appeal exist, one right and one wrong: God saves man or man saves himself.

The premise that man saves himself implies that Christ's sacrifice on the cross was somehow inade-quate. God's saving man denotes salvation by grace—the unmerited favor of God. The assertion that God saves man requires God to impute His righteousness to the believer, which is precisely the arrangement proclaimed by the Bible.

God's character requires sin to be judged, or else God ceases to be holy and pure. Although our American legal system presumes a person innocent until proven guilty, God's perfect system of justice rightfully declares all sinners guilty who are without Christ. Judgment shall be poured out upon the sin of every sinner. Thankfully, Jesus accepted the Father's will in bearing the burden of sin for all of mankind. God then saw the wrath placed upon the Son, and the Father said, Justice has been served. Righteousness has been fulfilled. Now I can receive any sinner through this payment made by my Son.

Having taken the judgment for mankind's sins upon Himself, Christ says to all those who call upon Him: Take my righteousness in place of your sin. Christ and the sinner trade places and identities. II Corinthians 5:21 reveals this relationship, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Freedom's Ring is a must-read book discussing Christ's work, which, if accepted through faith, changes a person's life for all eternity. This book illustrates the greatest message ever told, the greatest theme in history, and the greatest work ever performed, by the greatest Person who ever lived. Freedom's Ring is a fascinating, easy to read, yet scholarly work, providing the answer to life's most pressing question, “How can I know where I will spend eternity?”
