I think we are in an area of abstract beliefs that no one is going to win. We are talking about cultures & beliefs & religion with no end to a solution.

I have to disagree with your summation of the Christian faith.

Jesus did not come to come to show us how to "do it". He came because the children of fallen Adam were condemned to eternal separation form God unless God found a way to redeem them. And He did.

From the Book of John, Chapter 3:

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

********

36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

As per Ephesians 2:8 (and countless other verses and memes in theWord of GOD) :

"8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Our ability to "do it" comes from the Holy Spirit enabling the redeemed to bear His fruit:

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)

Further, as Jesus explained in John 14:12-17:

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
