Justification of Mankind … by Bill Campbell .. is The Best explanation I have seen. Everyone should read it at least once. An important resource for those who feel the call to Spiritual purpose, and to Spiritual Leadership in this age of global Awakening. An important subject.
“We have all heard that Jesus died upon a cross to be the savior of the world; but most of us don't really understand, "why".
When we refer to the cross, the blood, the atonement, we are referring to something ... that is for the whole world. (it’s God's idea)
But, "justification" is something personal. It's about the person taking advantage of all of this.
Although Jesus died upon the cross for the world; all people are not "justified". (the accusation of sin has not been removed)
There is a certain understanding of this Atonement Covenant that affects justification for the person. It calls for obedience to the Word of the Covenant. It has to do with the person's life, and "active" faith. As we will soon see, I'm not talking about a religious opinion. I'm referring to ... a covenant relationship.”
The preaching of the traditional "creed" church over the years has sought to justify people that didn't know God, and never knew, or pursued His intention. They were lost people, relying on a notion that Jesus had died for their sins, and that they were now saved. This leaves people without relationship: and they don't know the Spirit Word of God. (we’re not talking about the Bible?)”
"Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, ... they are the sons of God." - Romans ch.8
