No one person is born with sin into their hearts. It is not until we become aware of right and wrong that sin is committed. Unfortunately, we, as humans, are open to corruption and sin. When we sin against our God given nature, we must ask God for His forgiveness. The Bible teaches us that “all men originate their own moral depravity” (Genesis 6:12; 8:21) The Puritans believed that all men and women, due to human nature, had the capacity for sin and evil, especially women.
As the Bible says, the just shall live by faith (Hab. 2:4). Second, God may be letting evil run its course in order to prove that evil is malignant and that suffering, which is the unfortunate product of evil, is further proof that anything contrary to God’s will is bad, harmful, painful, and leads to death. God gave Adam dominion over the world (Gen. 1:28). When he rebelled against God, he set in motion an entire series of events and changed the very nature of man and creation.
Before Adam had committed this original sin, the world as we knew it was a paradise without earthquakes, floods, tornados, and all the other natural disasters that we know today. This natural evil was a consequence, or punishment, for the disobedience of Adam. God cursed the earth, “I have placed a curse on the ground. All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it. It will grow thorns and thistles for you.”  Evil stems from sin which came not from God, but from man’s willfull disobedience to God.
Neither does Richard Dawkins (author of The God Delusion). The unmentionable evil at the centre of our culture, according to him, is religion. Faith is one of the greatest evils of the world comparable to the small pox, he says, but harder to eradicate. He writes, “From a barbaric Bronze Age text known as the Old Testament, three anti-human religions have evolved: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.” Dawkins has even gone to the extent of saying that forcing religion into a child is a form of child abuse. Daniel Dennett (philosopher and cognitive scientist) likens religion to cancer – it grows and is destructive.
Romans 1:20 says “that the creation has been seen and understood because of God’s invisible qualities, divine nature and His eternal power so that men may not have an excuse.” It, therefore, follows that God is seen through His creation. He has made everything showing mercy to those who spit on His face that He is the same God that created everything by the power of His word. People who have seen His glory through His creation have no excuse before Him for they have seen and experienced yet rejected Him (Frank, 2013). Our Human Identity According to Paul, Christians should find their human identity in knowing Jesus and their true nature. Genesis 1:27 says “that we are made in God’s image” and according to Romans 7:25, “are joined to the father in spiritual union through Jesus Christ.”In Him, we find who we are because of the fellowship we have with Him.
Job was a man who was a good man and faithful to God. God punishes Job harshly for no other reason than to prove to Satan that Job is religiously faithful. Satan appears before God to tell him about all the sinful things people were doing on earth. God allowed Satan to test Job by making him suffer. God says to Satan, “Did you notice my servant Job?” There is no one on earth like him, a thoroughly good man who
THE SIN THAT DESTROYS BOTH THE BODY AND THE SOUL 1ST LESSON: 1ST CORINTHIANS 10:8 "Neither let us commit fornication as some of them committed, and fell in one day twenty-three thousand." 2ND LESSON: 1ST CORINTHIANS 6:18 "Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body." GOLDEN TEXT: HEBREW 13: 4 "Marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled: whoremongers and adulterers God will judge." Brethren, the father has now begun in full swing.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them”, Genesis 1:26-27. These verses clearly show us that we were created in the image of God, since the bible has clearly shown us that we were made after the likeness of God this then proves the theory of evolution by Charles Darwin to be wrong which suggest that man came from being baboons and later own they developed. According to Ellen G White in her book Patriarch and Prophets commenting on these two verses she says, “Here is no mystery, there is no ground for the supposition that man was evolved by slow degrees of development from the lower forms of animal or vegetables life. Such teachings lower the great work of the Creator to the level of man’s narrow, earthly
It says “For God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” This verse basically says the same thing as John chapter three. That we are all sinners and Christ came into the world to forgive our sins. Another example is second Corinthians chapter five. It says “God made Him who had no sin to be sin, or be a sin offering for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God.” Have you ever heard the Ten Commandments? If not, here they
