Jesus Takes Away the Sin of the World

God Loves People
John 3:16 17: For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world; but that the world should be saved through Him.
Jesus Accepts Those Who Come to Him
