I recently heard someone say, “I believe people are basically good.”
I’d like to believe that. Do you?
The Bible teaches that people are made in the image of God. And God is good, so one would think that people would be good. And, at many times, times when they are living well, people reflect God’s goodness. But the Bible also teaches that people are “fallen”. That we once held a position of perfection, and lost that through sin. That sin tainted the human race, and to this day, it taints almost all we do.
How do you deal with this reality, day to day? Do you hide? Do you simply accept the fact that your life is marred by sin? Do you try to cover up? Do you look for answers?
The answer is found in the opening chapters of the Bible — and it carries on throughout the remainder of the Scripture text.
This podcast speaks of our sinful nature, and explains God’s remedy.
