According to Christian belief, Jesus Christ saved humanity from sin by taking on the punishment for our sins through his death on the cross and subsequent resurrection.
In Christian theology, humanity’s disobedience to God, known as “sin,” created a separation between God and humans. This separation made it impossible for people to attain eternal life with God. However, Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross served as a substitute for the punishment that humans deserved for their sins.
By accepting Jesus’ sacrifice, Christians believe that they are forgiven for their sins and are reconciled with God. In this way, Jesus’ death and resurrection serve as the means of salvation for believers, allowing them to have eternal life with God.
The concept of Jesus saving humanity from sin is a central tenet of Christian belief and is often referred to as the “atonement.”
