“No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them—the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough—so that they should live on forever and not see decay … But God will redeem me from the realm of the dead; He will surely take me to Himself” (Psalm 49:7-9,15 NIV).
Redemption is the “act of recovering ownership of something by paying a sum.”
I can do many things.
Redemption of life is not one of them.
Not for myself, not for anyone else.
Redemption is God’s work, and God’s work alone.
