Wouldn’t it be nice if someone else could do all the work of getting into heaven for us? In traditional Christianity this idea takes the form of andquot;substitutionary atonement,andquot; the idea that because Christ suffered for our sin, we don’t have to. This idea is rejected in the New Church, but it is still appealing to believe we don’t have to do spiritual work because the Lord is doing it for us. While we could do nothing without the Lord, we actually need to take full responsibility for our spiritual lives. After all, no one else can do it for us.
