Jesus...our great Johnny Cochran in the sky?!?

from Bishop KALLISTOS Ware...
...salvation signifies much more than an external alteration in our juridical status, and likewise much more than an "imitation of Christ" through our moral conduct. Salvation is nothing less than an all-embracing transformation of our humanness. To be saved is to share with all the fullness of human nature in the power, joy and glory of God. It is to affirm with entire and uncompromising realism, "His life is mine."
My old understanding of soteriology was like dirty rags...filthy, sinful, evil, demonic, and flat our wrong.
Thanks be to God that Jesus is not our lawyer, He is our Lover and He is our Physician.
