I am finding that the modern culture is sneaking into the words and actions of my children. I find myself bristling at times and even have had to do some corrective teaching on a few subjects.
“There is none righteous, no, not one… there is none who does good, no, not one.” (From Romans 3: 10-18) People are born with a sin nature and so we cannot help ourselves, we sin - so we are the “bad”. But God cannot sin – He is “Good”. “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” (1 John 1:5 emphasis added) Our sin separates us from God (Who made us and LOVES us more that anything else in all of creation! "...For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?" (2 Corinthians 6:14) That is why He came in the form of a man (Jesus) to absorb our sin, take our separation (possibly by going to hell - theologians don't agree), rise from the dead to shatter the finality of death, and resume His place in heaven to prepare a place for us so that can JOIN Him there! Jesus bridged the gap between our darkness and God's light!
