Although it is now clear that we, “the sons and daughters of Adam,” were created through an evolutionary process, we believe that all of humankind has a fallen nature in need of redemption. Like Eve before us, we hear a voice telling us that we can sort out good and evil on our own. We don’t need God, we think. We, like the primal couple, can easily be fooled into thinking that life is best lived our way and not God’s. We listen to the voice that tells us that we can become like God--we can become the masters of our own destiny. We can sort out good from evil for ourselves. Who needs God to tell them what to do? Why listen to God? The Bible calls the act of living life our way and not God’s, sin. Regardless of the historicity of two unique individuals named Adam and Eve--a topic that has received much discussion on these pages--of much greater significance is that we are sinful creatures in need of redemption.
Today's featured sermon (first posted in ITunes on April 2, 2011) focuses in on the sin problem, but more significantly it lays out the profundity which exists in its answer. Listen to what Christian apologist, Ravi Zacharias has to say about the gravity of the problem and the eternal wisdom found within God’s kenotic solution.
