Here is a clear example of a man who was broken by the law, completely understood that he was unrighteous, and in complete fear of God’s wrath. He asked a series of heartfelt questions such as, “How can I even hope for forgiveness?”, “Is atonement even possible?”, “What does God want from me?”, the chaplain could not answer one bit of his questions. We know however, that for everyone of his questions the answer is found in Christ, this is why we must cherish the gift of Absolution.
So here are my questions:
1. Who was closer to the Kingdom of Heaven? The Man or the Woman?
2. What would you have said in her place?
3. What does this clip say of the significance of Truth?
