Cross Examination to Innocence.

Austin Carr, who is the leader of our Friday morning group, wrote this:

Reading Oswald Chambers yesterday (Oct. 28) I contemplated what he was saying and it occurred to me that what he said can be reduced to six questions. Being a trial lawyer, I like questions a lot and I decided to ask the guys at our breakfast today the questions, in cross, examination form:

Q: How is your relationship with God these days?
A: Well, so - so, not as good as I would like, maybe a C+

Q: What was the purpose in Christ dying?
A: To make us perfect in the eyes of God.

Q: When Christ died on the Cross, what did he say?
A: “It is finished.”

Q: Were you born before or after Christ died?
A: Well, after, of course.

Q: If Christ said, “It is finished” is there anything that you can do to imporve upon the purpose of Christ dying?
A: Well, no, not at all.

Q: Then, let me ask you the question again, How is your relationship with God right now?
A: Ah, I get it, yeah . . . PERFECT.

Biblical authority, if needed, is at Romans 8:1
“There is therefore now, no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus . . . .”
