The Bible identifies two sides to the work of Jesus Christ. "He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification" (Romans 4:25). First, our sins, faults, errors, untoward conduct, and evil thoughts put Jesus Christ on the cross. We transgress God's high standards for living. Christ pays the price.

Hail the lowly saltine - but hold the Vienna

I can remember when I was younger how different the things that people ate for lunch or even for snack used to be. These choices that seem so foreign or unpalatable today were very common back in the 1970s and 80s.
For example, when we barned tobacco, I can remember at break time and lunch the pop-top cans and wrappers would come out of black lunch boxes or brown paper bags. Workers would make miniature sandwiches by taking Vienna sausages and slapping them between two saltine crackers.
