What has Religion done for the World?

Question was asked: “What has religion done for the World?”

Christian response,

Religion places burdens upon mankind that he/she can never conquer or overcome. It is Jesus that destroyed the burdens and condemnation of religion through His perfection/sinlessness and made those who trust in Him “worthy” of eternal life through the imputation of His own perfection – righteousness earned for us at Golgotha and we can access that perfection by believing in Jesus as our God and Messiah who died to pay our sin-debt for us…a debt we could not pay ourselves due to our sinful nature (2 Corinthians 5:21; John 3:16-18; Romans 8:1).

So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.
