Problem and Solution

"Most Americans believe that what their problem is is something has happened to them and that the solution will be found within. They feel that they have an alien problem to be resolved with an inner solution." In other words, something happened to me. I am a victim. The solution is found in the depths of my heart.

"The Bible says that we have an inner problem with an alien solution!" The gospel reveals the depths of the sin in our hearts. Our problem is within us, and it can only be solved outside of us-through the sacrifice and righteousness of Jesus Christ.
