1 Cor 1:18 (NET) For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 

Konrad Adenauer, chancellor of Germany after the fall of Hitler once asked Billy Graham while on a visit to Germany, “Do you really believe in the resurrection of the dead?” Mr. Graham answered that if he didn’t believe in the resurrection of Jesus, he wouldn’t be there to preach. Walking across the room and looking over the ruins of Germany, Adenauer said to Billy Graham “outside of the resurrection, I know of no hope for mankind.” He said this looking at the ruins of Germany after the devastating war. Seeing the human nature of wickedness in it's brightest manifestation.

The cross of Jesus Christ stands as the centerpiece of the gospel message of Christ because it recognizes the dastardliness of what sin is and the beauty and the love of forgiveness. There is no religion in the world that offers the hope of redemption except the cross of Jesus in the Christian worldview. The eastern religions talk about karma, the Muslim says that his good deeds must outweigh his bad deeds for him to make paradise; these are not pejorative statements, but doctrinally proven conclusions. The Cross of Jesus is the only answer in the world that offers you a savior.

In understanding the message of the cross, you will understand the message of forgiveness, because in learning how to receive forgiveness, you will also learn how to forgive. At the cross, Christ offers you forgiveness.

Friend, outside of the cross of Jesus, there is no hope for mankind. 
—Otuokon, Ubokudom
