Whether for one sin or for every sin, a radical act was necessary. We are all radically saved regardless how dark our past is. If it was for one sin only or for all mankind’s sin put together a radical act of grace is what was satisfying to God in order to save man. The sinner who walked away justified recognised and knew just how vile his past was and understood that radical grace was the only thing which could save and justify him.
‘To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’ “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”‘ – Luke 18 vs 9-14 (NIV)
