Where else can a person who causes unimaginable destruction, in so many ways, and who has no possible way of paying for all the bad things he has done, be completely forgiven? What hope would such a person have, outside of Christ? And without hope, won’t that person just keep causing destruction? If there is no way out, why not? Only because of Christ can such a person have their debt paid by God Himself. It has nothing to do with works. There is absolutely no way the “sinner” in this case can pay for his sin. He is helpless to redeem himself. His only hope comes from having his debt paid by another.
