YouTube - Oprah Winfrey: Jesus Did Not Come To Die On The Cross

Those who preach that Jesus is our example or that Jesus shows us how to live have more in common with Oprah's theology of self justification than with the biblical doctrine of justification by grace alone through faith alone. Jesus is objectively our salvation because His active and passive obedience is imputed to us. He lived a perfect life in our place and He died for our sins on the cross in our place. He died specifically for His elect, His sheep (John 10:11; 1 John 3:16). Those who confuse sanctification with justification are preaching salvation by congruent works, which is really no different from what Rome preaches.
