Talk 6 of 6: To Become Just
* Justification stands at the very centre of many theological and religious discussion back in the first century AD. In simple terms, the question is: How can we restore a good relationship with God, the One who is Just and Bounteous?
* Here comes faith in order to accept Jesus, the only-begotten, as a pure gift of grace for redemption and healing of our hearts and souls.
* The Holy Spirit brings with himself transforming power: for the Law of Moses, while stating what is right and what is wrong, did not have the power to transform our hearts so as to fall in love with what is good, and yo really detest what is evil.
