What I think the human psyche cannot wrap there arms around is that Jesus Christ is the payment in *Full* for the Sins of Mankind...There is nothing Man can do to reconcile himself, by himself or through a paticular religion or the *law* to a Holy Just GOD....

We can see from *Creation* in Genesis G-d did not create us for laws, rituals, and special observances....

All religions are Man’s attempt to try and please G-d and this is meant as no dis-respect to any one person’s religious system, but Catholics cannot become *more saved* by saying the *Rosary* or Muslims cannot be *More saved* by praying 5 times a day, or Jews cannot be *More Saved* by keeping the Sabbath or Circumcision....

This is the difference between Jesus Christ and all man made religions...Jesus said..I am it..I am the only one who can save humankind from Sin, by the *Cross* it is not about *Us* it is about *Christ*....

This was a problem during Saul/Pauls travels with the Churches in Collosians, and it is today...

People still feel the need to be more Spiritual or legalistic to be reconciled to the *Creator*

Scriptures tell us this as well.

1.GALATIANS 4:15-What has happened to all your joy? I can testify that, if you could have done so, you would have torn out your eyes and given them to me.

2.Galatians 2:16: “Know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified.”

ACTS: 4:12
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
