Difficult Texts of Scripture

The hosts have been making the argument for the past few weeks that Christ and his grand rescue mission is the major subject of Scripture.  The core of the Christian faith, they argue, is his saving work on our behalf, not our own personal transformation.  But if this is really the case, how shall we interpret various biblical texts which seem to contradict this view?  For example, Jesus said in his Sermon on the Mount, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God?”  Do verses like this undermine the doctrine of justification by an imputed righteousness?  Tune in to find out (originally aired Nov. 26, 2006).
