THE VITAL QUESTION

Are we created sinners?

 

Question: If God so loved the world why did he create us imperfect sinners? If you believe the story in the Garden of Eden, then you have to admit that God set us up for failure. What kind of loving God would do such a thing? What kind of God would stand by and allow something like the holocaust to occur? The fact is that whether or not there is or is not a God, it doesn't really matter.
 
Answer: The Bible does not teach that God created man imperfect or sinful. As a matter of fact, the Bible clearly teaches than man was originally created good and upright. "Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions" (Ecclesiastes 7:29). And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good (Genesis 1:31).
 
Something happened after creation that ruined the image of God in us. Like God, we were created holy and righteous; but that image was defaced by sin. Man voluntarily chose to disobey God, even though he had been warned about the terrible consequences that would follow. The first man, Adam, sinned. He could choose to obey and disobey. He freely chose to disobey the Creator. It is his fault, not God's.
 
Moreover, since Adam is our head and father, he is the representative of all the human family. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned  (Romans 5:12). We repeated and ratified his sinful choice a million times.
 
The diseases, trouble, decay, the holocaust and death are the consequence of our sin. It is our responsibility, and we deserve worse than that. Indeed, unless God is merciful to his rebellious creatures, we will all perish in Hell forever.
 
What kind of God would stand by and allow something like the holocaust to occur? The same God who stood by His beloved Son while he cried out, "My God, My God, why have thou forsaken me!" God did that for the love of sinners who would believe in Him; God gave His Son to liberate His enemies from the debt and penalty of their sins, which were transferred to Jesus on the cross. God so loved the world!
 
Is God irrelevant in the face of the cruelties and injustices in our world? This thought is as foolish as it is arrogant. On the contrary, the existence of an all-powerful and just God is the sure guarantee that one day justice will prevail, just as He promised. Moreover, God is the hope of redemption from personal guilt and the miseries of this world and the world to come, to them who, instead of accusing God, admit their sinfulness, repent and trust His beloved Son. 

These videos, with their thought provoking content, are well worth exploring. They give a real insight into many interesting topical subjects. The message they bring is timeless and a sure basis for hope, both now and in the future.

A Woman Rides the Beast

Virtually all attention these days is focused on the coming Antichrist - but he is only half the story. Many are amazed to discover in Revelation 17 that there is also another mysterious character at the heart of prophecy -- a woman who rides the beast.
