One accomplishment would be Jesus sacrificing his life for us. The article under "Why Did God Send Jesus to Earth?," discusses it a little bit more.

Without His sacrifice and resurrection their would be no Christianity and no reconciliation with God. We would all be lost
Report as
Right, Jesus offered his shed blood, to be used in behalf of true followers, who exercise faith in his ransom sacrifice. Making it possible for us to enjoy everlasting life, as well as, God's blessings. (1 Peter 3:18)

Ninja_Jackie_san, just curious, is it that you don't believe in the bible or just not in Jesus? Thanks for your comment.

The Bible is a text which was written by humans thousands of years ago. I believe it is a real document, but is just a book, nothing else. I'm atheist agnostic to put it plainly :)
Report as
Ok, gotcha. Well, do you believe that the universe had a beginning?

He was a single person who was noted to have never traveled more than 200 miles away from his place of birth. influenced the world for positive character modification in its standards to the present day. I am not religious nor want have any desire be apart, but I like to learn the lesson of the past to impact the present.

I definitely agree that there are valuable lessons we can learn from the Bible, as brought out at 2 Timothy 3:16.

Reconciling humankind with God the Father, whereby he reopened the gates of Heaven, allowing all good humans, to go there after they die, and live there in total love, and complete happiness, with God, forever!

Easy. Splitting time. Whether he was just a man who lived and was executed, or if he never even existed at all... The Common Era is defined by him.

I've never heard that before, it's an interesting thought. There's one thing mentioned in this article that I think you might be interested in, though.

...you're not going to tell me what that one thing is? Is this like Curly in that Billy Crystal movie, City Slickers?
Report as
Oh! JW. Never mind. My neighbor is JW, I am fully aware of the insanity.
Report as
Of course, I'll tell you and no, I've never seen city slickers. I just thought you would want to read it for yourself, but the article mentioned Jesus dying for our sins (John 3:16), so that our sins would be forgiven and that we would receive everlasting life (Romans 5:12;6:23) Have a great day!!!

Right, giving his life as a ransom, thus saving our lives. Notice what this article says bout this very question.
http://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/wp20121201/why-did-god-send-jesus/
What exactly do you think the ransom means for you?
Report as
I am sorry but I do not understand what the word ransom means .
Report as
No problem. Ransom is a price to buy back or to bring about release from an obligation or undesirable circumstance. In this case the ransom price is Jesus' shed blood, which delivers us from sin and death that we've inherited due to Adam's sin.
Report as
On page 47 of this bible based publication it talks more about what the ransom is.

Actually he suffered more in Gethsemene than he did on the cross. He atoned for everyone's sins at that time . He sweat great drops of blood. The resurrection is important too because it made it possible for all of us to be resurrected. His whole life was teaching us and showing us how to live.

Every single person will receive a resurrected body. Even evil ones. The conditions we will be allowed to live in depends upon our obedience here on earth.

Ok. Because of inherited imperfection, we struggle to do what's right. The ransom provides forgiveness of our sins. (Colossians 1:13,14) Through this forgiveness God has made it possible for us to worship him with a clean conscience despite imperfection. (Hebrews 9:13,14) Also, a clean conscience makes it possible for us to have freeness of speech by means of prayer. (Hebrews 4:14-16) Also, the ransom provides the hope of everlasting life. (Romans 6:23) Here's a book I think you'll be interested in, "What Does The Bible Really Teach?"
http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1102005135
It's a Bible study aid, so it doesn't replace the Bible, it just helps people to have a clearer understanding of what they read in the Bible.
