But what if the only reason people think they NEED "saving" is because
the Bible TELLS them that they do?
Then I think they are missing something. Something important.
I cannot think of a worse dead end of false peril and false hope to continue traveling down.
Realizing that we have fallen natures (--that we are less than we should be or would like to be--) that we have have bad motives and inclinations, can help us to examine ourselves and grow into being better people. Many of us feel powerless against our darker natures and relying on a higher power belief, someone that we put faith in to help us conquer these things, often helps --as has been demonstrated in the lives of many.
