What's Wrong With Sin? Everybody's Doing It.

The Expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise

God, who is enthroned from of old,
    who does not change—
he will hear them and humble them,
    because they have no fear of God.

Psalm 55:19

New International Version (NIV)

        Blasphemers abound in our age.  They always have, but there seems to be a greater blatancy about it these days.  Sinners find all sorts of excuses and justifications for what they do.   Evil is relative.  Everything is good in its own way.   

        None of this is especially new.   Sin and the acceptance of sin has been around since Adam and Eve were expelled from Paradise.  But in our age sin is like a badge to proudly wear to show all of the world that we are liberated from the oppression of God.   Satan must be gloating over this state of affairs in the world. 

        The devil is having his day now, but God waits patiently for the day when judgement will come to all and the devil will get his due.  There is a way out for all sinners.   Are you listening?

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:17

New International Version (NIV)
