[quote:384rn0a8]What exactly does “trust in the blood of Jesus” mean?[/quote:384rn0a8]

John 6:28+29 – says – Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, [b:384rn0a8][u:384rn0a8]that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. [/u:384rn0a8][/b:384rn0a8]

so we look to see what He did and that is that He died so we might live and I can quote all the verses that says He took our sins to the cross, purifying anyone whosoever believes such as –

1 Pet 2:24-Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

2 Cor 5:21-For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Heb 1:3- Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, [u:384rn0a8][b:384rn0a8]when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; [/b:384rn0a8][/u:384rn0a8]

[i:384rn0a8][b:384rn0a8]So to answer what I mean, I mean are you believing that you will go to Heaven because of what Jesus did on thne cross OR are you believing that you’ll go to Heaven because of the Catholic way “if you reach a certain level of being good enough, pugatory,priestly confessions, sacraments, your owm good works? but to believe one way is to deny the other way….. which are you going to trust to get purified?

Just knowing that there is a God won’t save you unless you believe in that Biblical God !!![/i:384rn0a8][/b:384rn0a8]
