“For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.” (John 3: 17, Amplified Bible Classic Edition)
The purpose and activity of the Christ was not condemnation. Jesus’ message, his healing works, and his final transcendence of death were meant to teach and to prove the might and majesty of divine Love.
And Love does not bring judgment to mankind, but restoration. The Love of God expressed by Jesus resurrects us all to a higher understanding of our freedom to be who we truly are—brothers and sisters, sons and daughters of God, worthy and accepted.
Jesus was telling us the forever fact of God’s mercy and His care for each one of us. The Master’s great mission was not to bring hell to the earth, God’s anger and our shame. Nor was it to teach a sense of division, where some are worthy, and some are not.
Christ Jesus preached and lived a universal sense of healing Love, the holy Truth that reveals to us all how God made us to be, and how His love can continually cleanse us, uplift us, and keep us safe and sound.
