The Bible is full of important words, important messages, important sayings, important advice. But which are vital? Which are the most important of all?


Some Catholic theologians believe that it is almost impossible for an ordinary person to commit a sin -- to offend God. To do so (1) you need to be in full possession of all your faculties (that rules out the mentally disturbed right from the start); (2) the sin has to be an act of defiance. In other words, you know that it is a sin and you actively and knowingly set out to defy God. You challenge Him. (This knocks out anything you may do or say in a state of emotional stress, or anything you may do or say while not fully awake. Many Catholics regard an hour before going to sleep and an hour after waking up as times of not being fully awake. Some Catholic theologians think this time span is too limited. They suggest two hours before going to sleep and two hours after waking up).
Catholics think Protestants in general have a  hard-hearted attitude towards "sin". Protestants think Catholics in general are too soft.
What does God think? If there is one thing I know about our Father, He is soft-hearted. Soft-hearted in the extreme.
True, there are two sins that He does come down hard on: sins of violence (but even here He is prepared to forgive if the sinner sincerely repents); and sins against the Holy Spirit. But otherwise, Father God is super-super-super soft-hearted. All His actions prove this.
"For God so loved the world that He sent His One and Only Son into the world, so that everyone who comes to believe in Him should not die but live forever. God did not send His Son into the world to judge the wortld, but to save the world. Everyone who believes in Him is not judged, and will not be judged." {Jesus to Nicodemus, page 88, "Mark and John; the First and Last Gospels -- a radical new translation from the best available New Testament texts}.
These are surely the most important words in the whole Bible!

Whosoever believe in Jesus and also believe in the One that sent Him, he/she is passed from death to life. That's rather important to note too!!
