“…Christ offers a solution. In contrast with the difficulty of our situation, the solution is breathtakingly simple. It turns out that we don’t have to scale the high moral bar. We are not being asked to do the impossible. Rather, Christ wants us to acknowledge that we are sinners and to accept God’s grace by way of his sacrifice on the cross. There is a penalty for sin, we are told, but Christ has already paid it. In other words, the one who came back from the dead has cleared the way for the rest of us to enjoy eternal happiness. Therefore our job is almost embarrassingly easy: a guilty plea is all that is required for us to obtain an acquittal. Is this an excuse to avoid moral responsibility? Not at all. In accepting Christ’s sacrifice we repent of our misdeeds and seek to emulate his example in seeking purity of heart. We may never fully achieve this goal in the present life, but it at least supplies a standard to aspire to now, and one that will be realized in the life to come.” ─ Life After Death, The Evidence, Copyright © 2009 by Dinesh D’Souza, Regnery Publishing, Washington DC, Page 229.
