The classic hymn, Rock of Ages, in the 2nd verse sums up the difference between Christianity and every other tradition, philosophy, theology ever invented. Every thing BESIDES Biblical Christianity has its basis on the accompishment of man, rather than the complete, finished, perfect work of Christ.
Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law’s commands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.
Rock of Ages (verse 2)
Some, may say, “So what if there is a difference?” Well, the difference is the difference between Heaven and Hell – a vast difference indeed.
