Romans 3:20


"Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. "

This verse separates Christianity from all other religions of the world.

Righteousness does not come from obeying God's laws, which is impossible anyway. Instead the law was given to make us conscious of our sin against God, so that we would repent and understand our need for a savior.

God is love and his love demands justice, in which we must serve the wages of our sin, which is death and separation from God.

That is why God sent his Son to earth, to die in order that his death would serve as the wages of our sins. This is the only way that God is provided for men to be saved.
