Thesis:"Forgiveness" is a means to an end, but what end?

Introduction:In our study last week we tried to make the point that John was constantly addressing a significantly unflattering reality: mankind has taken on the essence of a viper. We saw that he did this because of one huge fact: man's enormous commitment to "life by flattery" is so profound that there is no solution except to confront it plainly and without allowing men any "wiggle room". God's truth is this: no one will be forgiven who refuses to admit the truth about himself, but anyone who is willing to bring this truth to God for a solution will get one.

Because the problem is so real, and God's solution is so satisfying, we are going to continue to look into this issue of "insulting" men into "eternal life".
