God, taking the nature of a human being , came to this world to reconcile men

"For God SO loved the
world that He gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but
have eternal life."
"...If you confess with

and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead,
you will be saved.
For it is with your heart
that you believe and are justified,
and it is with your mouth
