|Christ saving Adam and Eve|
Arianism is the rejection of Christ's divinity. The NCW never rejected Christ's divinity nor his humanity. There is a false and malicious rumor going around saying that the NCW do not believe that Jesus is God. These rumors are spread by those who are against the Way.
The truth is....the NCW recognized that Christ is true Man and true God. We acknowledge the true purpose of His life, death, suffering, and resurrection on earth. After the Fall of Adam and Eve, the gates of Heaven were closed to man. Abraham, David, Isaac, Jacob, and all those who had faith in God were in the underworld waiting for a Redeemer. All the sacrifices of the Old Testament could not open the gates of Heaven. Only Christ was able to do that in his suffering, death, and resurrection.
The Good News that Christ told His Apostles to spread to the ends of the earth is His resurrection. Death has been conquered. The gates of Heaven are now open to mankind for Christ has paid the price for our sins. When Christ died, his human body was dead, but His Spirit went to the underworld to liberate the souls who were held prisoner by Death. Adam through sin brought death to mankind, and Christ through obedience brought life (Romans 5:12-19). This was the Good News to be pronounced to the ends of the earth. CHRIST HAS RISEN!! Christianity is an event that has happened in history. Now is the time to spread the Good News for Christ is risen on Easter morning. Many communities will be out spreading this news in the Great Mission and as they go out in two by twos.
