ER released this new episode about a month ago. Surprisingly, their handling of pluralism, lethal injection, and even homosexuality was honestly equitable and mature, though they offered no answers for their hard questions.

Of course, there is an answer to Dr. Truman’s question.
God doesn’t look at a sinner’s heart and say, this man is 85% righteous but 15% sinner. And then to another, this man is 10% righteous but 90% sinner. Instead he says, there are none righteous, no not one. They are all 0% righteous and 100% sinner. Christ lived the perfect life that we should have lived and are condemned for not doing, and he died the sinless sacrifice on our behalf, our ransom, imputing his righteousness to us and taking our sins from us and taking them on himself on the cross. “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith” (Rom. 3:23-25a).
“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God” (1 John 3:1).
“Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering soul to Thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love. Here’s my heart, Lord, take and seal it, seal it for Thy courts above” (Robert Robinson, ‘Come Thy Fount of Every Blessing’).
