are usually much more dogmatic in their humanistic beliefs during a conversation or debate. That is because the desire to choose one's self over someone whom he has not met is far greater. If you knew God you would understand, but until then your reason is clouded. All men need forgiveness because all men to wicked deeds and have sinned. To come to God we must be cleaned of our sin (which still does not make us perfect). When we accept Christ and His death for our sins we become righteous in God's eyes-not because of anything we have done or could possibly do-because of what He has done for us.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Call it dogmatic or whatever you wish. It is a personal relationship with the God who created the universe and His Son.
Only God through Christ offers forgiveness for sins. Not you, not your priest, but God.
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
