Nothing so subjective as the Christian consciousness can be the test of the truth; so then, our forgiveness has as its objective ground the Death of Christ. The Cross is the divine act of redemption before it is man’s message of it. What Christ does for us is the ground of any work He does in us. P.T. Forsyth
When Jesus says in John 14:6 that He is the way, He means that He will become the way through His death, as the context of this verse reveals.
