1. Salvation is a gift, it is NOT earned.
2. The gift of salvation is offered to mankind because God is full of grace and mercy. But he is also perfectly just.
3. If not for Christ's atonement, God's justice would prevail and we would be eternally lost. Mercy cannot rob justice. However, the atonement of Jesus Christ makes it possible for God to extend his mercy and grace to humanity. Thus through the atonement the requirements of justice are satisfied AND God can gift us with his mercy and grace.
So what about the above is "not Christian"?
