is truth One? Yes.
Is Truth only? Yes.
who is this One and Only Truth? The Son of Almighty G-d Yahushua Christ, our Savior.
How can Christ Yahushua set us free? and why do we need Him to set us free? Free from what?
let me try to answer all these vital questions backwards.
1. Free from what?
A simple answer is to be free from death. why do we die then? we have a biological death, and spiritual death after. when we die physically, our spiritual death is awaiting. if our souls are forever waiting in a desolated space, it equals to an eternal death of our souls. however, only when our departed souls regain a new body, then we will live once again.
a simple analogy like this, when we die, just like unload an operation system from a computer hardware system and is stored in a media. if this OS is there forever, then it will never run again. essentially, the OS on a media is dead. however, when you install into a hardware, it will run the hardware.
therefore, since every human being dies, death is certain. Free from death is a hope to live forever.
2. why do we need Christ to set us free?
first ,let us explore what cause us to die. Physically, our biological bodies are born to die as we learned from the modern science. Spiritually, our souls after death went to the other world that no one came back. One key question we must want to know is why we must die?
The Bible says it clearly, that the wage of sin is death. It speaks plainly that due to the sin inside of our body, we cannot stop sinning and the consequence of the sins is death. it can be understood as the sin corrupts the biological system to cause it to decay and deteriorate and die at one day. The sins also go with our soul as they co-exist in our spiritual body. as it defiles and darkens and corrupts our souls, if our Creator does not want our souls to live once again, we will never get a new earthly or heavenly body to live once again. figuratively, our souls will die after the judgement. Spiritually, it can be understood that our souls will be destroyed in the lake of fire. The exact ending is unknown.
can we defeat the death by our modern science and medicine? it would be a dream to keep chasing it. and it has been the dream of many generations. in reality, if we look at the centenarians who were or have been so aged and deteriorated in various ways of health and strength, the prolonged life is very limited. If such life is extended to another 100 years, what he or she will look like? No. unless aging of our biological body can be stopped, then our soul can live in this flesh for a long and happy life. but an eternity of life will never be reached by any human effort. otherwise, the death of the Son of G-d would be not necessary.
What Christ promised was to give our saved souls a new body to live forever with him. As he is eternal, and the Giver of the Life, only He can save us and set us free from the death truly. who else in the history promised to give such a life that defiles death? all created beings must die. But now, there is a hope for the created humans to live forever, not in this life, but in the coming life. What a beautiful and awesome hope.
3. How can Christ Yahushua set us free from the sin?
Sin entered the world like a drop of ink entered a cup of water. without any external means, the polluted water will always be polluted. However an ink is ink, water is water. G-d can separate the sins from the human souls by shining His Light into them. as the sin is darkness and corruption, it fears the True light. When the true Light lives in a human's heart, it drives out all sins gradually. at the same time, this Light heals the corrupted soul and heart and clean them to be like G-d's. By this Way, a sinner can be truly saved as he or she will bear the true identity of child of G-d.
Praise be to the Lord forever and ever.
