Who Are You Really, Why?

Go deeper into the thrilling story of the gospel. Learn how sinful, fallen, incomplete mankind can become whole again through Who Are You Really, Why?

Due to the sin of Adam and Eve, the spirit linking them to God died and they became less than complete. As the children of Adam and Eve, we were born after the image and likeness of our sinful, fallen, incomplete parents. Therefore, all people come into this world alienated from God, and this alienation can only be erased by the miracle working of the Holy Spirit giving sinful humanity a new birth and entrance into the family of God.

Using in-depth word studies of the original Hebrew and Greek biblical texts, Who Are You Really, Why? explores the intriguing and often complex story of the human condition and answers the questions of how we can be made right with God and experience a happy, contented, and fruitful Christian life. The message of the Bible is how God, through love, planned the restoration of His children by the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross.
