Rebellion and Redemption


Parts 1-11 cover the basic problem of mankind and what God has done to solve it. The basic problem, simply stated, is sin and by turning to God in repentance and faith we are able to receive the benefits of Christ's atoning sacrifice. Through the gospel we are redeemed, forgiven and justified. Having experienced the gift of a new life, we live in the grace of God.
