The Horrible Pit

Buddhism, Daoism, and Confucianism are unable to help a man escape the pit he has fallen into; only someone who rescues him while holding onto the cross can do it.

English Translation

Right to left panels: (1) I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. (Ps 69:2) No man can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for him,

(2): the ransom for a life is costly. (Ps 49:7–8) It was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed, but with the precious blood of Christ (1 Peter 1:18–19)

(3): The Lord lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.

(4): He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Jehovah. (Ps 40: 2,3)

Border: Please go to a church to hear the gospel and study the Bible.
