The Bible claims that God created the world good. Not only that, but the creation gave witness to its Creator. Creation reflected some of the attributes of the God who created it. Unity, goodness, harmony – that’s what creation was because that’s who the Creator is!
And then something happened. It all fell apart. Something called sin showed up and spread like a cancer and pretty soon everything went south. Don’t ask where sin came from – the Bible gives no real answer.
The result of sin was the utter destruction of the good creation that God made. I don’t have to tell any of you that sin still rears its ugly head. Sin is still very much a part of who we are and who we are not. It is still ravaging creation. Racism, pollution, world hunger, violence, wars, drugs, crime, prejudice – the list can go on and on. The good creation of God got broken and still isn’t fixed.
What did God do about it?
What is God doing about it?
What is the antidote for sin?
All of them?
Let me ask it again. What is God doing about sin? What are you doing about it?
