God heard our cry for help and answered our prayers through the incarnation of Jesus in which He became man in order to save us. He saved us from the Original Sin committed by Adam and Eve that corrupted humanity. This is why Jesus Christ, the Son of God, took responsibility for us, His people, by becoming a man and dying a completely human death for the sake of our salvation. Works Cited Pohle, Amanda.

Showing that it was important for Jesus to be a human and spread his knowledge among us; to help us learn and be able to teach other through oral and written tradition. It was now necessary for Jesus to come for our salvation because “had he surrendered his body to death and then raised it at once…which showed him to be not only a man, but also a God the word” (Athanasius 14). This connects back to by why Jesus wants humans to believe that he died a human death. When God created the world “by faith is we understand that the world were framed by the word of God, so that the things which we see how did not come into being out of things which had previously appeared” (Athanasius... ... middle of paper ... ...ons. Jesus is the most qualified of the three Divine persons because Jesus wants to be on with us and with the world.
His Incarnation, suffering, death, and Resurrection was for all of us. Jesus came to save us from our sins and evilness, and to guide us back to the Godhead. In the beginning the Word created everything. After creation, humans were holy, and in harmony with God. One action, Original Sin, ended that holiness, and harmony harmony and God created many consequences.Of these consequences, death was the most prominent consequence.
Here Nephi expresses why it is that he “delighteth in proving unto [his] people the truth of the coming of Christ.” He teaches that, “save Christ should come all men must perish.” Without a Savior and Redeemer, no man would be fit to enter back into the Kingdom of Heaven. But Nephi delights in Christ because, “in his grace, and in his justice, and power, and mercy,” the Plan of Salvation is made possible. This characterization captures the true essence of who Christ is in so many ways. Our God is a God of justice, bound by divine principles to hold all men accountable for their actions. By this estimation, it would be impossible for any of us to make it back to Him on our own; we would all fall painfully short of the mark of perfection that qualifies men for Heaven.

It was necessary for God to become human so that we may be able to finally see our Ruler in the flesh. Through all the treacherous moments Jesus endured, He ended all corruption and opened the gates of Heaven for all. Through all these deeds we must remember that “He is in truth Son of God, Existent Word and Wisdom and Power of the Father” (Athanasius 40), and that is why nothing is impossible through God. These saving actions of Jesus are important because without this manifestation, the world would still be plagued with sin and death.

Let us therefore come body to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16 KJV). God takes no pleasure in the death of sinners he wants them to turn.
Jesus changed my life. Conclusion God is the reason why we exist and his grace is sufficient for all of humanity if they chose to believe. Jesus was sent to die for our sins including the sinners who hung on the crosses with Him. The Christian faith does not mean living a perfect life but a life pleasing to God. We are called to have faith as a mustard seed.
Heaven is perfect and cannot be tainted by people who are born sinners. Temptation is necessary for a fair God, because without temptation, there is no choice for man to make. No choice for man would prove that God is not a fair and loving God, which is directly against the Bible, therefore false in Christianity. Moreover, the existence of Satan is necessary, and to Milton, is the “hero” of mankind. Without Satan tempting mankind into sin and death, the true savior of man, Jesus Christ would have had no reason to suffer and die on the cross for our sins.
In the book On the Incarnation by Saint Athanasius many challenges of why God is the only God are confronted. It is justified that God is the one and only God through examples, parables and scripture. The covenant in which God came to the Earth in human form as Jesus Christ to bring salvation to all His people is known as the Incarnation and was unquestionably accomplished through Jesus Christ. The human race needed salvation because of one sin that affected the rest of humanity. God reached out through Jesus to guide us, “He has been manifested in a human body for this reason only, out of the love and goodness of His Father, for the salvation of us men” (Athanasius 2).
The huge nature of Jesus’ suffering is displayed in the passage when the soldiers mock Jesus.  Jesus had a choice whether or not to suffer and die, and chose to, to save us. He suffered for us to make us good enough for heaven, and could have stopped at any time, but didn’t. Jesus doesn’t have to pay the price for his sins as he has none, and Christians believe that in his willingness to suffer and die on their behalf, Jesus set an example, which they themselves should be prepared to follow. In the Gospel Jesus says, “If anyone would come after me…he must deny self and take up his cross and follow me.” Jesus’ death was not a sign of his failure, but the climax of his ministry.
