Romans 3: 19-26
Paul summarizes for us the reasons Jesus is the sacrifice that all of mankind needs to be made perfect in God's eyes. He also points out that when we choose to try to follow another way, we fall short, and anything short of heaven, is hell.
Where it was once easy to claim our Christian faith without resistance, today's world will challenge our beliefs and call our faith into question. This is why we must be able to defend our faith and beliefs by knowing why we take a stand there.
