Ankerberg: Ergun, wrap this up. You wrote a book on the clash of cultures. And you’ve talked about the many religions that are out there that people can get into; Islam being one of them, Buddhism being another and Baha’i, and you name it, okay? For people that are there, that would like to come into Christianity, that would like to know, what is it that is required? What is the Good News? You guys talk about this Good News stuff, what is the Good News that they don’t have?
Ergun: Christianity offers something that no other system in the world has: an intimacy with the Father that you will be inhabited by because you are loved by God. You cannot do anything to make God love you any less. You cannot do anything to make Him love you more. That love is personified by the cross; was personified by God paying the debt for man who could not find a way, even if his works were perfect.
The only perfect man that ever walked the planet was crucified. He arose, He ascended, He presented His blood at Heaven’s temple. And then Jesus did an amazing thing. According to Hebrews: He sat down. He sat down, not because He was tired and not because it was somehow a regent move; He sat down because He was finished. Atonement had been offered. He sat down so that I could rest. I’m liberated because He paid the debt. And it was once and for all delivered.
