There is a lot of info on the site and I have not looked at it all and I know there are parts of it that I will probably not agree with but there is a wide variety of professed believers on these Shelfari groups and I decided to pass the info on to the group for discussion purposes. In looking at the first article on the list, I personally would not word point 3 the way the author did. I would make some very subtle changes to it. Here is my revision:
3. JESUS DIED SINNERS JUST LIKE YOU.
Jesus Christ is “God manifest in the flesh” (1 Tim 3:16). The Son of God, who
existed from eternity past with the Father and the Holy Spirit, the three eternal Persons of the one and only true God (1 Jn 5:7), took to Himself a human nature, so that, although He was still 100% God, He became 100% Man as well. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross, where His Father “made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2 Cor 5:21). He then rose bodily from the grave and ascended to heaven, from whence He will soon return to judge the world. Salvation is for all that believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.
On the cross God laid our transgressions upon His Son, who suffered to pay our sin debt. The law demands perfect righteousness for entry into heaven, but Christ died as our Substitute so that His death and shed blood could pay for our sin, and you, as a believer, could have His righteousness put to your account and be counted righteous in God’s sight for the Savior’s sake. You can be saved, not through your own works, but through His work; not by your attempts to obey the law, but His perfect obedience to it and death to satisfy it. “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us” (Gal 3:13). “Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring
us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but [made alive] by the Spirit” (1 Pet 3:18). Since by “one offering he hath perfected for ever” those that are washed in His blood (Heb 10:14), there is nothing that you can do to save yourself, or to keep yourself saved. “Salvation is of the LORD” (Jon 2:9).
