What would have happened if a)Jesus disobeyed God’s will and never died for our sins(which is complex to imagine, considering God is Jesus…Which still confuses me)? or b)Jesus never came at all? Would there be any possible way to be saved? Would it only be through our behavior alone that we were saved because we couldn’t rely on the Atonement?
If there was no Atonement, would people strive harder to be better? Not just accept some slips and say it would be alright because they’d be forgiven.
Perhaps I’m being controversial. This is why I keep my questions to myself 😛
