"Jesus Christ is Lord. Everything else is bullshit."
-- Stanley Hauerwas
St. Paul never said: “While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us, on the condition that after a reasonable length of time we would be the kind of people no one would ever have had to die for in the first place. Otherwise the whole deal is off.”
Robert Capon in "Between Noon and Three"
But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
