"All of man's wisdom, good works, and searching out are incapable of finding God. Instead, God and His way of redemption found man. This is why the Cross and its way of saving man stands at the heart of the Christian faith, for it is here that the Life that came into the world in the Incarnation is poured out for us. At the Cross we who believe take, as it were, our place in Christ's death. There we die with Him to our own sins and the sins of the world. Dying with Him, we also rise with Him. Dying to our old sinful natures, we are made righteous by His sinlessness. That is why God's way of saving us is faith in Christ crucified."
