Sinners in Hands of an Angry God by HarambeForPresident
The Grass Mud Horse Contest contest entry
The heart of Christianity is that the playing field should be level, that sinful people should be on equal footing before Jesus, all born with hearts that are prone to sin, all in need of salvation.
I think the meme speaks to the different definitions of what salvation really is according to the separate groups, sinful society and Biblical Christianity.
Satan has a definition of salvation (for sinful people) that says you are enough, that you are not in need of salvation because you are innately good, and even if you were, you alone are holding yourself back. Satan says (for Christian people) if you just realized how amazing you were, you'd be able to essentially get saved yourself.
The Gospel, by contrast, doesn't leave us where we are. Christians alone are not evil, and able to save us because of their knowledge of Christian history. This takes humility to accept because we have to admit our own evil tendencies of heart.
Jesus then empowers us to be transformed into people who look more like him as their actions become more and more selfless as Jesus's actions were. Sinful society misinterprets this empowering love because it doesn't want to be convicted of sin. They don't realize the freedom that comes with stepping into the light.
