Why do we need to be saved? The simple answer is, because we are sinners! Yet even though that is the straightforward, simple answer, it’s still one that we need to understand because we live in a culture that tells us we’re ok, we’re doing alright, and we’re getting better with every generation. But if we open our eyes and look around—or are honest about our own hearts and motives—the evidence tells us that we’re anything but okay. In this penetrating nine-part series, Dr. Ryken addresses with a pastoral heart why we need to be saved, what we need to be saved from, and what we need to be saved to.
