Many people look at the Bible as a set of rules and regulations that are impossible for anyone to follow. It is only when they realize they can't do it on their own, that God reveals to them their need for a Savior. Jesus did not come to condemn the world, but to save the world through His sacrifice on the cross to pay the price we couldn't pay.
"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
The next time someone says they can't live up to God's standards, look at them and admit that you can't either. That's the reason I need Jesus. He paid the sin debt in full so that I wouldn't have to. I deserved judgement, but I received grace.
