What Went Wrong?

(Continued from previous page)
None of us comes close to perfectly honoring God in everything we do. In the Bible, God through the Apostle Paul said of the human race that “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…” (Romans 3:23 NASB 1995). Even if we were to not be sure about the Bible, our daily experience of normal life proves the Bible’s description of us to be true. From the very moment our first human parents, Adam and Eve, sinned, they began to experience radical spiritual corruption. In fact, God told them that in violating his command, they would experience death, “…for in the day you eat from it you will surely die” (Genesis 2:17 NASB 1995). In that tragic moment they opened a proverbial doorway through which sin, and the death and decay it brings, were allowed to enter into our universe. As spiritual descendants of Adam and Eve, all people became sinners by nature and through choice.
