Firstly Lee Strobel begins by using C.S Louis‘s story to explain the unique nature about Christianity as a religion of “Grace”. Lee strobe further explains that Grace is different than all other things in the all religions. He says the grace of God is salvation to all people, and that it is by the grace of God that we have a relationship with God. Lee Strobel defines Grace as the favor shown by God to sinners. Lee also explains Grace as that free gift of forgiveness and eternal life that we do not deserve that comes in repentance of faith. Furthermore Lee Strobel uses the example of the parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15:21”The son said to him, father I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. But the father said to his servant .Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him, put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again. He was lost and is found, so they began to celebrate”
Firstly , Lee starts by mentioning a journey in Australia where they took the other folk and at the end they landed in a great restaurant where their car were stolen but the insurance took care of all the lost .Lee Strobel is trying to make s to understand that you can either choose a folk to the dead end or a folk to Christ. Lee explains that there are many folks on the road and we just need to take the right folk and be saved for the folk for Christ is the right folk and it gives not regret at the end. Lee explains that as Jesus was ridding the horse to Jerusalem to meet the disciples he was filled with regret for those who have taken the wrong folk. Lee explains in the bible verse of Luke 19:37-38” When Jesus came near the place where the road goes down the mount olive, the whole crowd of disciples began to joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen. Blessed is the kings who comes in the name of the lord” .They choose the folk of the road which lead to heaven, While the others took the folk of the road which lead to a different direction John 12:37”Even after Jesus had performed so many signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him. Lee Strobel further explains that Luke’s gospel tells us that as Jesus began to approach Jerusalem he began to weep and said how I wish they could know the road of peace/. Jesus was weeping because of his fulfillment that most people did believe they took the road to the spiritual dead end. Luke 19:41, 44” But as he comes closer to Jerusalem and saw the city ahead, He began to weep. How I wish today that you of all people would understand the way to peace. You did not recognize it when God visited you.

1 Corinthians 1:26 ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
we Christians we must pray to God and take precautions with people who use weak and wicked instruments to bring men to the knowledge of the truth we must put our faith in the word of God so that our faith in him will grow further.
1 Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. we must know as a Christian that the best thing to do is to get out of the darkness of this world, to listen to the voice from above, but not our voice, but a voice coming from something that is not ourselves, which is none other than the voice of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1 verse 18. It means that the message and example of Jesus Christ looks like foolishness to people who are not chosen by God. The message of the cross is foolish folly to the unsaved masses in society today. This message of the cross is not foolishness, but of life, wisdom; the power of God. The word of God is very clear that the message of cross is the power of God.
“Know ye not that the unrighteousness shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,”1 Corinthians 6 verse 9. The above scripture is addressed to Christians who do wrong, seemingly forgetting that no wrongdoers shall inherit the kingdom of God. Apostle Paul then give some very explicit examples, the type of lifestyle or behavior typical of unrighteousness. Let’s not be deceived unrighteousness shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
