If you have questions for us to address in future broadcast, thank you, we'll let you know what to send them. At the end of this program, you're listening to search the scriptures daily a radio ministry of the variant call no our final segment, understanding the scriptures we continue our exploration of the doctrine of salvation, with more about the central importance of Christ's death on the cross, here's day on at a man for the segment of our program, which features a discussion of God's word, and in particular the gospel, were attempting to connect with Dave Hunt. My partner in this endeavor, who we tracked down in Switzerland, Zurich, I believe, is that right, Dave?
Well, actually you Endor, but it's in... There are... Okay, well we're gonna pick up where we left off last week... Now that we've gotten a hold of you if you remember from last week, we've been going through Romans, 5-6-321, this is pertaining to the gospel, which God's word tells us is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes, picking up with Verse 10, "For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled we shall be saved by his life.
David as we mentioned last week, this is this an extraordinary verse talking about being enemies of God, and then being reconciled to God by the death of his son.
Yeah, well, this is God, and this is his love, he so of the world, the world of sinners, the world that had rebelled against him, the world that actually hated him, although the they would deny that of Christ, who said they hated me without a cause and Jesus even went on on the cross, He said, Father forgive them, that is for those who nailed him to the cross those who locked him in a... It's love beyond our comprehension, it's grace and mercy and This is how salvation comes to us. It doesn't come through our work, it doesn't come through our merits, but we have proved ourselves to be the enemies of God enemies in our minds by what it works the scripture says, And yet Christ died for us. And so then Paul is saying, if he would do that when we were enemies, how much more have I been right consulting? And we shall be saved by his life Jesus said, Because I live ye shall live also and he ever live with scripture says To make intercession for us. This is just, it's beyond our comprehension, and the tragedy is that so many people try to work for a salvation they try to merit salvation. Do they try to clean up their lives turn over the leaf, so that then they think that God would look with favor upon them, that Christ died for sinners, he came to seek in the same...
I do and all of those are a car rejection of what Christ accomplish for us, even though we may be diluted into thinking we're actually doing something that moves us toward God. It's not, it's a rejection. Well, yeah, picking out with verse 11, and not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we now have received the atonement day. That sounds like it's accomplished it's finished amen. Is a finished work we have received the atonement we've been reconciled to the death of his son, and so we join in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, we couldn't joy and God is so just He's holy, in pure righteous, he could have nothing to do with us. ASCII so we deserve it. I think with his judgment, but now because of her more Jesus Christ, we have a relationship with God, he's our father, we rejoice in Him we know him, we love him, we have confidence in him and we can trust and trust ourselves to Him in every situation and it is wonderful what Christ has done for us. And this is something, as you said, "it's a conflict, it's fined Dave, this word here, atonement and tremendous word but this is kind of been perverted in the past. Some people like to use the consider to be atonement. Now I know the sincerity and that, but it's new ages and others have taken that word and headwind that we're one in God in the sense of his essence. Not just purpose or... Well, the attempt to reach that one, or they claim that, not to reach it, but to realize that's already there. And they do this through an A-called meditation technique so that they're not technology.
That we were enemies separated from God heading for how deserving of his judgment. But they're saying that we are actually one, but we just haven't realized it enough. Meditation techniques, we can realize this, but no, that's not what it... Right, and then it gets passed. This idea that atonement is needed, that the price had to be paid but were accountable, right? To get on a amen. Shower is an instrument for those who will believe it and that's how salvation comes through faith, believing God's promise. And those who are working for salvation or who are realizing their one month or whatever it is they have, as you said, rejected God's salvation, the salvation that comes to us through Jesus Christ. They've just rejected it and they're seeking to establish their own righteousness, some other way.
If you just joined as we're going through Romans, 5 and continuing with first 12, wherefore As by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin and so death passed onto all men, for that all have sinned and they believe I understand this, but there are some who would say, "Well yes, Adam sinned. And because of his act, all of his descendants are affected by what he did, and while it's true that we all sin, but this is laid on Adam, how do you explain that?
Well, for one thing telling it doesn't way with theistic evolution, which I guess I can't even remember, but we've talked about a bit in the past and I must have been, let's ago and this is embraced it's accepted within many or evangelical seminaries of course, this is Catholicism, the Catholic Church believes that the police that its talk Catholic schools milligram says he has no problem with the Christiana to day says, It's okay, Newman magazine, a Promise Keepers says That was okay and so forth of the idea of that used evolution. But man, when these evolving creatures got close, not to humans, a God put a U and soul and spirit and well, it doesn't work with this verse, because if there were these creatures evolving and dying and evolving and moving on and then death was here before and I was here before Adam sin. And it doesn't fit with scriptures at all. Of course, there are any other ways in which it doesn't fit with the scriptures, so is difficult for us to understand, but something so basic happened to Adam he was separated from God, I believe that the human spirit was into El originally by the spirit of God in both the heat man was made in the image of God, and when I had a...
'cause he have and they rebelled against God, it was a terrible thing that they would deny God that they would reject what he has said that they would follow taste hotline.
And so the scripture says We're dead in trespasses and sins, and man literally died within he died spiritually. And that effects can physically as well, so... So, Adam was no longer the person was no longer than man had made him and therefore all of his office would be in the same condition that... So the one man's Act passed down to all of his descendants and could not pass on to us something that he no longer have, and he no longer had this relationship with God. And it tells us that there are consequences of our sin as well. Not in the same way, but no man lives unto himself. But what we do is fix many others. Of course not in the way that had him sent it, but what's the warning to all David job will continue their discussion of God salvation, again next week this is search the scriptures, daily a radio ministry of the variant call.
