After going over creation, the fall, and the effects of sin, a female student named Lori tearfully shared with us the painful experience of losing her dad to a vehicle accident many years before. She stated that she had blamed God for taking her dad from her, an experience that many others could relate to. Lori said for the first time she understood that his death was not by the hand of God but part of the effects of sin. Prior to sin, there was no pain, no sorrow, no sickness and no death. But sin has had a detrimental effect on the whole of creation.
This is the day Lori was set free from the bondage of oppression that she was under. The days ahead will be easy to plant seeds upon this freshly tilled soiled. The whole gospel message includes explaining the nature of sin, the effects on creation as a whole and the struggle that our sin nature has with it. Without sin, we would not need Jesus as both our Lord and Savior so when giving the gospel, we must also be sure to thoroughly explain the doctrine of sin.
