Salvation from the consequences of wrong is provided to all persons by the elegance of God as well as the substitutionary satisfaction of Jesus Christ (John 1:29, 14:6; Acts 4:10 -12; Rom 3:21 -25, 5:12 -18; Eph 2:8 -10; 1 Tim 2:5; Heb 9:14 -15).

Some men enable God to accelerate, aid and nudge their free choice to help with admission of wrong, remorse, attrition, confidence as well as obedience so they might receive the excellent present of redemption (1 Animal 1:9).
