Romans 5:18 18 Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. I was thinking about this text the entire time I saw the passion movie. I would like discussion about the theological issue and not the movie itself, please. The movie showed the kind of scourging and punishment Christ took on the way to the cross, and the cross also. However, the emphasis on the N.T. is always on his DEATH, not his scourging. According to Paul, it was by ONE ACT that he formed the basis of our righteousness. Thoughts?
