In this thread we will show scriptures that teach Salvation by the effects and merits of Christ's Death alone, in and of itself. Many false teachers and christians teach that Christ's Death in and of itself saved no one ! That is the most Blasphemous Statement a person can make, and frankly , such a one has no business even claiming to be a Believer in Christ ! The first scripture that teaches un equivocally that Christ's Death alone, that it is the sole meritorious cause of one becoming saved is here: Rom 5:19b 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous. Now Paul teaches here in this verse and within the given context, that by the obedience of one, that one being Christ, the Last Adam, and the obedience being His, the obedience unto death Phil 2:8 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. And as a sure result, a sure effect The Many, He gives His Life for as Per Matt 20:28 28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Heb 9:28 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. Isa 53:12 12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. That all of that exact many, as a direct result of His Death or His Obedience, shall be made Righteous, that is shall be saved ! For to be made Righteous and to be Saved are the same thing here. In fact, the antithesis in the same verse, being made sinners, was being made lost, and that, by the effect of one man. Now who is it that shall shine in the Kingdom of Glory but the Righteous, the made Righteous Matt 13:43 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. Now this one scripture Rom 5:19b proves all who deny that Christ's Death in and of itself Saves those He died for, proves all of them to be LIARS !
