What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Hunter
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 Because our Father in Heaven Loves us so much he provided a way for us to return to live with him one day, and receive the fullness of Joy that he has. That is through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, His Son. Christ Lived his life to set an example of a perfect life, to bless lives to preach is Gospel and to fulfill many more callings that His Father extended. At the end of his Mortal life he performed the Atonement, which is the act of Him suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane, dying of the Cross, and Rising at the third day. "no unclean thing can enter into His kingdom." "Him", being God. It was necessary for Christ to perform this act so that we as imperfect beings could be redeemed from Sin and mortal flaws, become clean and be able to enter into the kingdom of God. Because God loves us, He provided us Son. So that we could on day live with him, and be like him. Show more Show less
