Steel On Steel
Most men will proclaim each his own goodness
In fact, Proverbs 21:2 declares "Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts." Though most people believe they are heaven bound, what exactly is heaven's standard for good, moral, and righteous? Who is righteous enough to enter?
God has not left us in the dark - His Law (the Ten Commandments) reveals the standard we must meet. In fact, we are told that the Law of the Lord is perfect, holy, just, and good. God has even revealed His Law to every human heart (Romans 2:15). Nevertheless, the law cannot save us: "...by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin" (Romans 3:20)
This concise video questions dozens of people and illuminates their "goodness" from God's perspective. With powerful animations and convicting visuals, The Good Test uncovers humanity's heart condition. Most importantly, it makes known the awsome hope that is available to all.

THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS:
Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long. The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There is a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist, that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support Himself so that He could breathe.
Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support Himself with His legs because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back and then using His legs just to continue to breathe. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, and the courage.
Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours. Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from His wounds.
From common images, we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side...But do we realize His wounds were actually made in His body? A hammer driving large nails through the wrist. The feet overlapping and an even larger nail hammered through the arches. Then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. But before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and His beard was ripped from His face. The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture.
He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds. The human adult body contains about 3.5 liters (just less than a gallon) of blood. Jesus poured all 3.5 liters of His blood; He had three nails hammered into His members; a crown of thorns on His head and beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest.
All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in His face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for its higher part, where His hands were nailed).
Jesus had to endure this experience, so that we can have free access to God. So that our sins could be "washed" away. All of them, with no exception!
