I am struggling to see the message of the Gospel in point #10. Jesus did so much more than die on the cross just to keep us safe. Perhaps I am missing your hidden meaning in that one word, "safe." To me, His death was much more than keeping me safe. His death was to pay the punishment of death (and hell) that I deserved and to redeem me from my sinful self. Would this be your meaning of "safe?"
